REPRESS!. Rare Bird are perhaps best remembered for having the
distinction of being the first act to be released on Tony
Stratton Smiths gloriously eclectic label Charisma records
(also the home of GENESIS, THE NICE and VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR
to name but a few) and for their excellent 1970 hit single
"Sympathy". Like fellow future Charisma stable mates Van Der
Graaf Generator, Rare Bird was formed around the principle of
keyboard dominated progressive rock which eschewed the use of
guitars. In December 1969 their eponymous debut album was
released to great critical acclaim, (also becoming a US
Billboard chart hit) and was followed in January 1970 by the
release of "Sympathy" b/w "Devils High Concern". The single
reached the UK Top 30 and was a subsequent major hit throughout
Europe. 24 bit remasterd. Has 2 bonus tracks!!

Also available: RARE BIRD (LP).
