Symphonic Metamorphosis, USA

Symphonic Metamorphosis - s/t. 1971 London.

Fascinating nine piece horn rock band formed by (then) active members of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. The horns are exquisitely performed, though the rock sections are a tad more restrained and pedestrian for a band with these kind of quals. Still, the guitar and organ work is efficient. The vocal harmonies have a 60s vibe to them. Worth seeking out for a listen or two.

Priority: 3

I saw this band back in 1969 here in Michigan and I loved their blend of classical and rock. I agree that their rock sounds a bit stiff sometimes but the arrangements are superb!
