GALLIARD-New dawn-'70 UK PROG-NEW LP

GALLIARD
New dawn
SWEET DANDELION / LP
PSYCHEDELIC, PROGRESSIVE, FOLK > 60's & 70's


Formed in the English Midlands as a six–piece band in 1969, Galliard released their second LP New Dawn in 1970.
The album has a strong progressive flavour, with an interesting brass section and great, strong melodies. It also features the great sitar breakout "Ask for Nothing", certainly one of the highlights here, a trippy 9 minute long sitar raga.

Galliard is a sextet formed in the summer of 68, and developed a psychedelic type of brass rock, fronted by twin wind players Caswell and Smith and singer Geoff Brown. They recorded two albums on the Deram Nova label (the subsidiary prog label of Decca records) around the turn of the 70's decade, when brass rock was the rage. Their first album Strange Pleasure By Galliard, released in 69, was quite eclectic, ranging from Medieval to Flamenco/Spanish music. For their second album New Dawn, wind player John Smith was gone, but the group adjoined a mega brass section of four player, plus keyboardist Morton.

This second album sounds a bit different, but we are still roughly in the same realm even if the spectrum is enlarged to folk and Indian raga.
