Avalon II
March 2001
Released: 2001, Fractal Records
Rating: 3.0/5
Reviewer: Pete

Hailing from the Great White North aka CANADA eh!, Avalon were an outfit that existed from '75 to '79,opening for many big bands, but only remained at cult status. Basically, AVALON are Canada's answer to STYX, with a touch of Queen tossed in .Relying on driving guitars and heavily induced 5-part vocal harmonies. This CD contains 6 tracks that were played live but never recorded until 1990 and mixed until last year. The production sounds fresh even by today's standards. Of interest are "Frm the maji", "long gone" and my fave, the 8-minute "your forever." If you're into that whole 70's AOR rock w/great vocal harmonies, then this should please. There's even talk of a new album and maybe live dates. Check 'em out at:
