It's A Beautiful Day/Worm Dance (Trend 6099 022) 1970

A jazz-rock/fusion band. Their third album, Dreams Of Impossibilities, was a German-only release on the BASF label in 1972. Peace For Our Time is an excellent progressive album with strong vocals, long sax and flute instrumental sections and good organ work. Several tracks like Rejection and Wind Of Change veered towards jazz but one, Wrote A Letter, was an acoustic bluesy number with interesting lyrics.
