Easy Steam “To Be Alive” 1977 US Prog Folk Rock

Easy Steam “To Be Alive” 1977 US Prog Folk Rock

There is a long story behind this local band. They did mostly local concerts and finally recorded an album in 1976. The LP cover was done front and back in either red or blue with a hand-made silk screen process. The silk screen broke leaving several records in inner sleeves but without covers. Some of the remaining discs stored in the original inner sleeves were obtained from the band and repackaged as near exact replicas of the original (as paste-ons). The originals included an insert including a photo of the band, their logo, and all of the song lyrics. Duplicated inserts (not pictured) are also available upon item purchase. 

This is a great progressive folk rock LP in a very pleasing unique style and includes electric/acoustic guitars, recorders, harmonica, flute, drums, bass, congos, bongos, and great vocal harmonies. The music falls between folk and progressive rock. A must for fans of this genre. 

Highly Recommended LP ………….
