Anthem For His Majesty (Mars Hill MHLP-1001) 1978

 

 

 

 

 

Clockwise’s independent production earns commendable marks for its subtle ‘70s art rock influences, mostly attributable to writer/keyboardist Angelo Natalie’s creative synthesizers and Bob Tome’s electric guitar work. Best examples are ‘Wandering Star’, ‘Time To Dance’, ‘New Thing In The King’, ‘Take The Plunge’ and the title track – all strong progressive-influenced selections. ‘Happy To Be The Moon’ is a decent mid-rocking song that recalls early Servant, while ‘Make His Paths Straight’ drifts into funky jazz-rock. A few nice acoustic guitar touches. Alternates male and female lead vocals. Overall a very worthwhile effort. Produced by Al Perkins. Superb colorful cover painting of medieval folks and horsemen approaching a castle. The band had previously released a single under the name Jonah. (Ken Scott – The Archivist).
