MAGNA CARTA – SEASONS (1970)
Album Review from AlohaPopRock-AlohaCriticon
In the case that you like acoustic sounds, calm, sweetly melodic tempos and lysergic pop-folk in the line of Donovan with some subtle progressive element, Seasons is a piece that you will surely enjoy.
In this, their second album, Magna Carta offer, under a conceptual vision, bucolic sceneries gently sung by Chris Simpson, in a suggesting collection of natural images full of poetry and elegance produced by two outstanding technicians, Gus Dudgeon (The Bonzo Dog Band or Elton John) and Tony Visconti (David Bowie or T. Rex).
The keyboards parts are interpreted by Rick Wakeman and the very best moments are in Airport Song, Elizabethan, Give Me No Goodbye ( with the sitar sound of Davey Johnstone), Going my Way, Spring Song or the marvelous Winter Song.
