Dragonwyck "Chapter 2" CD
This release, available on CD for the first time, is the second of World In Sound´s Dragonwyck trilogy. The group from Cleveland was one of the most promising bands from the early 70´s in that area. After their first legendary 1970 heavy-psych album (WIS-1023) the keyboarder changed, and the band left their garagy Doors influences to create their own sound. The music on these well produced stereo-recordings exists only on acetate (10 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´ entire "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 a variety of keyboard and vocal sounds. There are 2 bonustracks from a 45´record which was released in 1974, a bio, authentic press-releases and cool photos. This is one of the finest american underground progressive-psychedelic artrock-albums!
