Ptarmigan recorded the basic tracks for what would eventually become their only Vancouver - Ptarmigan (2) - Ptarmigan (Vinyl in The music of Ptarmigan is deep and authentic and intimate; it's reflective sounds are well suited to meditating on a landscape, an emotion, a bottle of wine, or maybe while staring at a flickering candle. Sometimes it is free-flowing and jazz-oriented; at other times it has the mystical feel of a shamanistic ceremony, fueled by Eastern-tinged harmonies.

But in the end, this album is about the sea: Ptarmigan was, after all, from Vancouver Island, and the musicians were well-versed in the contradictory moods of the surrounding ocean.

As usual James beat me to the review but this time by more than a year. For those not familiar with 70's Canadian progmost of it comes from Quebec and apart from Toronto RushSaga, FM Album) pretty well sums it up! This album has got a very undescribable feel of freedom and ethereal beauty all the way Album) the tracks and no other album comes close to this.

There is also a very indefinite Amerindian feel to this music but not quite the same as you would find in Chilean group Los Jaivas. Life is beautyfull. The remastering was apparently a success, but then again how would one know for sure unless they were one of the very few who holds an original vinyl copy? Anyway there are no noticeable flaws in the quality of this CD reissue, and there are even a couple of bonus tracks at the end.

They had spent time touring with him even before these studio sessions, and Horn had spent some time in the late sixties in India, Kashmir and Egypt absorbing those sounds and releasing some eclectic jazz recordings from that period.

The duo had also spent a summer touring Canada with mysterious guitarist Vancouver - Ptarmigan (2) - Ptarmigan (Vinyl late Lenny Breau, whose Spanish-influenced acoustic picking was Album) influence on the complex style of Chet Atkins. This is kind of interesting because one of my sons is a guitarist and a huge Atkins fan, and I have heard some of the same type of introspective, noodling picking coming out of his room from time to time.

Harmonizing duos, soft but lumbering acoustic guitar, and vaguely spiritual lyrics. This one is quite dated-sounding and mildly psychedelic, and here the Eastern influence is most obvious in the finger-cymbal percussion and brooding acoustic bass.
