Sahara - ''For All the Clowns''{Germany}[1974](Symphonic Prog.)

The music is rather typical early 70s proto-prog with elements of JETHRO TULL (for the flute-guitar interplay), early YES, and the occasional saxophone riffs remind of early VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR. There are some spacier and/or symphonic parts that recall NEKTAR, GENESIS (around "Trespass"), and maybe early ELOY. Second album of German progressive, "For All The Clowns" is more straighter with an overdose of progressive influences, notably FOCUS / YES and CARAVAN and a potpourri styles.(progarchives)

Ogg Vorbis files? This is a first on this blog.

If you're on Windows and the files don't play automatically, try downloading codecs from here: http://www.illiminable.com/ogg/oggcodecs_0.71.0946.exe

c'est tout de même assez plat dans l'ensemble (à l'exception du court "Prélude" en milieu d'album)
