Light — The Story of Moses
(Estrella Rockera 42129, 1972/2006, CD)
by Roel Steverink, Published 2007-03-01This album sprouts directly from the treasure trove of Dutch prog rock, although it took a Spanish label to finally release it on CD. The music is inspired by the great classic composer Bach, but in contrast with bands like Ekseption (for example) they don't copy a famous piece of work but instead create their own compositions. Light not only plays classical, they do rock. A whole bunch of instruments are being used besides an impressive array of keyboards, acoustic guitar, bass, sax, flute and drums that make up their complex sound. Extensive improvisation on guitar and organ in "The Blackberry Bushes" kicks this band into action. They can also do a totally unexpected switch from classical to jazz. Nothing spectacular, but more a thoroughly well made and played, very enjoyable lyrical prog rock. The master tape must have been lost or the Spanish couldn't get their hands on it, because this is a transfer from a good sounding LP. A welcome re-release.
