Aquila, England

Aquila - s/t. 1970 RCA.

UK group typical of the era, utilizing sax and flute to augment the usual g-k-b-d format. Rough tinged vocals. Echoes of Diabolus (especially) and the debut albums of Gravy Train and Raw Material come to mind. Fine organ solos with nice contrast provided by acoustic guitar. I like the way the band grooves over the harmony. Drum solo doesn’t help, but relatively short. Album closes in melodic horn rock way ala Blood, Sweat & Tears, or more to the point, Brainchild. Multiple boots exist.

Priority: 3
