December 18, 1970 Ideas
If you thought Robert’s predilection for the sound of the vibes dates from his midi-outings with the ProjeKcts then think again.
Here we have Robert coaxing ersatz vibes from the mighty Mellotron with the beautiful melody from Islands. This may well be the earliest working version of the theme: remember that the Islands album was not recorded for another nine months.
If that’s not enough to get your vintage heart skipping a beat then how about RF going in behind the lines of Last Skirmish from what would have been the newly released Lizard album.
Short but extremely sweet on both counts I think you’ll agree.
