Faintly Blowing - Fontana 1969
The sequel "Faintly Blowing" from 1969 is also considered an important album, though not entirely on the same level. The album contains many nice songs, both melodically and in arrangement, challenging the time's somewhat strict formulas in pop-rock.
No singles were released from the album, which might have been a good idea, as both "Faintly Blowing", "Snapdragon" and "If You So Wish" have the melody and originality to perform on the charts of the day.
Three contemporary singles have been added as bonus tracks, and of these I find the "Let the World Wash in" written for the Isle of Wight festival 1970, clearly most interesting.
Compared to the "Tangerine Dream", there are probably more "anonymous" songs on "Faintly Blowing", and the genre as such may already been a bit of a return in 1969, where the more blues-based progressive rock was on its way forward.
For fans of groups like The Move, Tomorrow, Creation etc. "Faintly Blowing" will definitely be an exciting acquaintance.
