Review by Gary Hill:
Lake was one of the great unknown bands of the 1970s. The group combined strong pop melodies with definite progressive rock-oriented arrangements. This album, obviously the group's second, features a lot of different textures. From the pop/rock-oriented "Welcome to the West" to the Elton Johnish ballad "Love's a Jailer," this entire album is a treat. Although the majority of the disc is in a definite singalong sort of pop style, there are still some quite meaty instrumental sections that lead to the progressive rock reference. The music here is quite strong prog-oriented pop with a very unique guitar sound, and the vocals seem to call to mind a combination of Journey's Steve Perry and Yes' Jon Anderson.
Tracklist:
1. Welcome To The West
2. See Them Glow
3. Letters Of Love
4. Red Lake
5. Love's A Jailer
6. Lost By The Wayside
7. Highway 216
8. Angel In Disguise
9. Scoobie Doobies

James Hopkins-Harrison - lead vocals
Geoffrey Peacey - guitar, keyboards, vocals

Да, "Народ" пока самый лучший выход. Печально, но по предыдущей раздаче мне удалось скачать только вторую часть. Что-то не заладилось вечером. Выдавало "error". Первую оставил на сегодня...
