Twilight, Day and Night (Garden of Delights) Cyberconnection: http://www.forcedexposure.com/labels/garden.of.delights.germany.html
Another super-obscure (recorded in 1975, never released until this 2000 CD "reissue") German album released by Garden of Delights. The CD's not worthless, but I must say I can't blame Twilight's 70's label for not putting the release of Day and Night high on their priority list. The first song, "Day and Night" is undoubtably the best, an 8+ minute all instrumental jam featuring wonderfully Gilmour-esque guitar leads and rippling piano chords and a nice 6/8 part at the end. I doubt I could take a whole CD's worth of this, but it works pretty well. The rest of the CD is quite different, though, focusing on hard rocking Zeppelin-ish tunes with minimal progressive influence. I admit, the first time I listened to it, I could barely make it through the rest of the CD. But subsequent listens did reveal that there was some worthwhile material there after all (besides, how could I not dread songs called "White Queen Boogie" and "Rock'n'roll Chillun'"?). The second and last tunes are particularly good, both having strong riffs and, on the last, a welcome keyboard presence after their seeming disappearance earlier in the album. And even the horridly titled songs come of better than they might seem. If it seems like I'm going easy on this album, it's because I know it's not really my sort of thing. I doubt anyone thinks its a masterpiece, but it seems decent enough for aficionados of the style, nothing more, nothing less. ~Jon Dharma
