Recorded in January 1970, it became a groundbreaking work in the emerging genre of jazz-rock fusion. Band leader Ian Carr (later a jazz journalist and published expert on Miles Davis) was probably inspired by Davis' "going electric" in 1969, but the original song Bitches Brew had not yet been released at the time of Elastic Rock recording, and according to Carr, they had not even heard Davis' 1969 electric release. less influenced by rock, In a Silent Way. In July 1970, the band presented compositions from the LP at the Montreux Jazz Festival, receiving the first prize. Subsequently, they performed both at the Newport Jazz Festival and at the Village Gate Jazz Club.

BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST-EYES OF THE UNIVERSE-1979-FIRST PRESS UK-POLYDOR-POLD5029.A rare British original of the cult prog band. Eyes Of The Universe is the tenth studio album by the British band Barclay James Harvest, released on November 5, 1979.  After recording the album "XII" in 1978, the band lost the "branded" mellotrons of Stuart "Woolley" Woolstenholm. Feeling close within the Barclay James Harvest group, Woolley seriously engaged in a solo career. The remaining trio of musicians decided to continue the existence of their collective, making up for the loss mainly due to session musicians. The band's sound has noticeably improved and become more pop, but it has remained "afloat". And that was the main thing. One could not even dream of fame in America, but in Europe the records continued to be sold "briskly". ...more
