Sardonicus' by Spirit is excellent. A wild but long-winded "suite". On their next album, "Don't Lie To The Band", released in and with the help of Rush producer, Terry Brown, the band tightened up their sound and style to more of a hard rock direction though still slanted with progressive passages with some Album) the tracks in the 8 - 9 minute range allowed the members, most notably Jacques Harrison to showcase his talents.
In the band had some personnel changes and went under the name of 'The Hunt' and released their self-titled debut. A fantastic hard rock album but the prog tendencies were almost nonexistent.
All that being said, this really isn't heavy prog. Dillinger's first album was more overtly experimental, but neither sound anything like Rush to these sensitive ears. Dillinger actually maintain a very unique-yet-accessible sound, an erstwhile combination of jazz and rock that is very easy on the ears while remaining very challenging. They have a very classic eclectic prog sound - the production values are actually quite refined, with the drums in particular having a richness and fullness sometimes lost on more obscure releases.
This doesn't sound like a hole-in-the-wall album recorded by an unknown band; on the contrary, the music is very competent and personal, with an evident refinement that makes me very, very surprised that their work isn't more well known. That being said, the album really gets going on Munchkin Men, the album's centerpiece. This is classic epic prog, with some great LP soloing and excellent intermittent guitar.
The album's other true standout track is the marvelous Robot Race, although in truth there isn't a single song on this release that I dislike in the slightest. There's also some lovely atmospheric mellotron on Coming Home, reminding me why I love that instrument so much. A great band, possessed of some great experimental chops. Investigate them for their very individual style, which really sounds like nothing else coming out of Canada at the time.

Paul Cockburn and Terry Bramhall were eventually added, respectively on guitars and and bass. The following year they signed with Canadian label Daffodil and released their first self-titeld album.
The album was an original mix of jazz and progressive blusey hard rock. It was made up of only four tracks including the side-long ''Live and Return'' as well as an interesting cover version of Spitit's ''Nature Way''. Due to it's complexity, the album was met with indefference. Constant live gigging and dedication eventually got the band a bit of recognotion,so they entered the studio to start working on the follow up album in October The recording sessions lasted a good four months under tha aegis of label owner Frank W.

All the rest were originals and an obvious improvement over the first album.
With three tracks clocking in at over eight minutes and another at six,the band had ample freedom to explore and show off their talents as both composers and musicians with many instrumental parts featuring keyboards organ,mellotron,Moog and guitar interplay,as well as an healthy dose of folky flute playing and jazzy sax parts.
This was to be the band's last album as Dillinger. Drummer Robert Harrison got homesick and returned to Quebec where he joined highly local popular hard rock legend Offenbach, LP. He eventually quit them and resumed his career as a blues guitarist. They were re-named The Hunt by manager Cliff Hunt and showed the band moving in a meaner and heavier rock direction. Their first album as The Hunt still showed prog leanings thanks to Cockburn and Harrison's songwriting as well as the ever present flute and thick keyboard sound topping Gagnon's Geddy Lee-like's wailing,eliciting vage comparison Posts: 36, Likes Received: 27 Joined: Apr 20, Hey nice to see you back again Joe Very good write up I'll put them on my list, but from the sound of things finding an album might be difficult.
Feb 5, at AM 3. The vinyl was hard to track down back in the day LG. I'm pretty sure both albums have been issued on CD. Their second album is better of the Album) IMO. Feb 5, at AM 4. So many of the albums you know intimately well were released a couple years before I could afford to buy my own, and living in the small town with one shop I have to say the selection was what you describe as "mainstream".
Now all these years later it is a matter of luck if you can locate a copy at a fair price of many albums that were never mass produced.
I'll keep my eyes open for anything with Dillinger on it. Feb 6, at AM 5. Some prices are absolutely crazy and a big discrepancy in value though I think that depends on a regional basis. For example, Dillinger's albums probably demand more money here in Canada as oppossed to say, the southern U. S, the U. You must log in or sign up to reply here. Show Ignored Content.
