More Than A Season (Rivendell RR-2103) 1979



More Than A Season is definitely the stronger of their two albums, helped along by a few subtle Styx/Yes art-rock touches on cuts like ‘Carpenter Song’ and the title track (at least before the latter wanders off on a disco tangent). Also some Chicago-derived horn moves on ‘Moonbeam’. Still, the arrangements and vocal harmonies can tend to push their overall sound closer to groups like Glad. The electric guitar rocks more prominently this time – check out the boogieing ‘The Devil’s A Liar’ or the climactic lead on ‘Lift Me Up’. Doug Howell is involved again (string arrangements), while Fletch Wiley plays flute and produces the album. Deluxe gate-fold cover.    V(The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
