Dragonwyck "Chapter 2" LP + 7"
This release is the second of World In Sound´s Dragonwyck trilogy. The group from Cleveland was one of the most promising bands from the early 70s in that area. After their first legendary 1970 heavy-psych album the keyboardist changed and the band left their garagy Doors influences to create their own sound. The music on these well produced stereo-recordings existed only on acetate (5 copies) and drifted more into the British vein of progressive rock, like King Crimson, Pink Floyd or Yes, but also reflects US-Westcoast feeling like It´s a Beautiful Day.
By 1972 Dragonwyck was performing Moody Blues´ complete "Days of Future Passed" live on stage, which turned out extremely well, so this is for sure the strongest note you´ll recognize. The 10 original cuts are intense and very unique with strong melodies/vocals, heavy guitar solos and an extreme variety of keyboard and vocal sounds. An awesome mix of heavy underground rock with classical chamber-music style/elements. Included you´ll find a bonus 45/rpm record (with pic. sleeve) which was released in 1974, also a poster with a bio, authentic press-releases and cool photos, remastered from the original mastertapes.
