NEKTAR - Down to earth

After one of the finest progressive rock masterpieces "Remember The Future" (released on vinyl on Sireena Records SIR 4015), the guys from Nektar had to decide the direction of their next project. Should they continue with the theme record and the longer tracks or attempt something different? Nektar went with the alternate route and along with "Sounds Like This" (on Vinyl SIR 4003) comes their most underrated achievement. 1974's "Down To Earth" with Hawkwind friend Robert Calvert acting as ringmaster for the progressive circus is a tremendous listen. "Astral Man" is in its proper place as the album opens. Offering the perfect combination of catchy instrumentation with a great vocal, the three–minute tune would be superlative on stage as well. "That's Life" is a work of art. The beauty of the song comes alive each listen. "Fidgety Queen" is in your face Nektar rock and roll with no apologies needed. "Oh Willy" can be thought of as a shorter version of "A Day In The Life Of A Preacher" from "Sounds Like This." In short form it still takes hold of your body. The album builds momentum and by the time the eighth track rolls around "Show Me To Way" you are elevated to an even higher level of musical brilliance. The album is yet another juwel in the long series of great NEKTAR albums. Of particular note ist the backing vocals of famous P.P. Arnold and the saxophone play of Steve Gregory and rest of the brass. We included the reproduction of a classic live Poster of NEKTAR . Sireena will continue the release of NEKTAR vinyl. Stay tuned!
