Curved Air - Live 1971 - CD
Fronted by the charismatic Sonja Kristina and driven by Darryl Way's innovative violin, Curved Air burst onto the British music scene in the Autumn of 1970, seemingly out of nowhere. Championed by John Peel, their exciting and unique brand of progressive rock captivated audiences and made them live favourites.
This superb release finds them at the peak of their powers on two radio broadcast performances and is presented together with background liner notes and archive images.
Sonja Kristina - vocals; Darryl Way - violin; Francis Monkman - guitar, keyboards; Ian Eyre - bass; Florian Pilkington-Miksa - drums.
