Bowl - "Bowl" {Netherlands} ['75-'77] progressive rock

bowl appeared in the scene of netherlands at mid seventies. they did several concerts. as far as i know they never came up with a release under a label, however several songs recorded on their live concerts in time, and what we got in this album is the songs that rescued from old tapes. about the album, it has so nice atmosphere beautified with baraque elements. the sound is similar to the bands like camel, alquin and kayak. there is not even a dull song on the album, and for some songs i like to listen over and over. as the time passes some members changed, some new joined. musicians in the records were; Hessel Hoornveld(Bass guitar, guitar), Hans Elmers(Vocals), Johan Spiering(Keyboards), Bas Blom(Guitar), Hans Andringa(Drums), Herman Meyer(Guitar), Bob Schaafsma(Guitar). A hidden gem for the lovers of 70s progressive rock.

Hi Prognotfrog, I found impossible to release every download with your blog. The links are interdict from the Ministery and Postal Policy. The addresses are redirected on a page that complain "interdict from the National Centre against the child pornography on WEB".
Ok, i'm very interested in the russian group Akacis and Bowl, in particular but not only.
If you can, give the true adresses of the albums on Rapidshare or the likes, instead of, to solve the problem. At least for the last series of albums. Thanks
If need this my email

Sorry, i've forgot to indicate the country. I want to mean that in Italy is impossible to access the site, due of a filter imposed by the Ministery of the Intern and Postal Policy. The impedence concern only and not direct links on Rapidshare, Megaupload and so on. Thanks for attention.

Hi Prognotfrogblog and Isabel, as i promise my thought on this band. Many of the tracks impressed me so much. Pleasure music in classic netherland's style, very close to Kayak, Earth and fire, Marakesh and so on, with some rock and blues adding. Very good singing, essential keybording but effective, great, refined and sensitive guitar playing. A very "blow"ing piece of art.
See you soon with comment on latvian Akacis, whose music is nice but not easy to judgement objectively.
