Jack Lancaster
Skinningrove Bay
-
BRCD 001
Bold Reprive Records 1987
-
Session musician Jack Lancaster released his first solo album in 1981, the very beautiful Skinningrove Bay. The album has been reissued in several shapes (Some of them called by mistake "Wild Connections" but "Wild Connections" was in fact another album from Lancaster collaborating with Rick v.d. Linden) and this is the 1987 version as the first of a serie of reissues on Bold Reprive Records. I think they printed not many copies because you can't find anything on the web concerning this release on BRR (exept for the secret vault that is).
The list of musicians appearing is:
Jack Lancaster (sax, lyricon, flute, keyboards, vocals), Phil Collins (vocals), Bernie Frost (vocals), Gary Moore (guitar), Hughie Burns (guitar), Mick Rogers (guitar), John G. Perry (bass, vocals), Robin Lumley (keyboards), Rick Van Der Linden (keyboards), Rod Argent (keyboards), Clive Bunker (drums).
Skinningrove Bay is a fascinating, highly unique and beautiful suite of progressive Rock music with Celtic, Nordic, Jazz, Church and Pop influences. It deserves a place on the shelf of any discerning collector of Classic Rock Music.

Here we are getting so close to a couple of albums I've been looking for for many years: the debut album Aviator featuring Mick Rogers Lancaster Clive Bunker and John G. Perry and the follow up "Turbulence". I'm a big Mick Rogers fan - anyone have links to these two albums? Thanks a lot. (Also, thanks for the fantastic stuff in this vault.)
