Synopsis

Product Description
The historic group that pioneered the idea of world music, and influenced much of the psychedelic and progressive era, a true fusion between East and West. The London-based Third Ear Band grew up in the free jazz/prog music scene of the sixties, although their music was more eastern influenced, drawing heavily on Indian ragas, and always acoustic (after their electric equipment was stolen early on). Recorded live in 1988, but not released until 1993, after the band reunited with founding member, percussionist Glen Sweeney and featuring Paul Minns on oboe, Mick Carter on guitar and Alan Samuel on violin. Still in the 'acid raga' vein of their 60s/70s work for Harvest (home of Pink Floyd and many other prog acts), to the delight of their avid following of fans.
 

CD Reviews

Third Ear Band - 'Live Ghosts' (Materiali Sonori)
Mike Reed | USA | 09/05/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Live release of a decent reunion - took place between Aug.-Sept. 1988. Original members Glenn Sweeney {drums} and Paul Minns {oboe} are joined by Mick Carter {guitar} and Alan Samuel {violin}. Liked the highly experimental raga rocker, the thirteen-minute free form piece "More Mosaic" and probably the somewhat intriguing "Chetto Raga" the best. Have to admit I was sort of amused by the sappy violin playing during the title track "Live Ghosts". Lived the 'Hymn To The Sphynx' 2-CD better (see my review)."
