Prisma, Netherlands

Prisma - s/t. 1980 private.

On the surface, Prisma are a commercial rock band typical of the era. But there's a depth to the musicianship and quality of compositions that belies its superficial tendencies. With that in mind, I'm most reminded of those Canadian FM staples Saga, or perhaps the obscure Indiana group Stencil Forest. Even a slight nod to the great Kestrel, especially in the piano work. Memorable music and a group that probably should've hit the big time with the right breaks. Original LP features a nice die cut triangle cover, supposedly representing a (I guess) prism. My personal LP isn't in great nick, that's for sure. If this came out on CD, I'd buy it instantly, even though it's just barely a Priority 3. Nostalgia for the time and place I suppose.

Priority: 3
