When classical music hits Psych Heavy Rock

Inventive Rock and technical musicianship all gathered on one record (please do not pay attention to what the band recorded afterwhile).

This is Prog Rock in one of its most demonstrative forms. Tons of variations and pinnacles, when dark Folk and heavy riffage walk together, all in a very classical music frame.

FRUUPP wasn't very popular in spite of relentless touring (with KING CRIMSON among others) and the record sales never quite satisfied Pye's Dawn label.
The band unfortunately called it quits after 4 albums and hundreds of shows.

Please ENJOY "Graveyard Epistle", you might need to buy the record right away. But note it's a $100 investment. At least. I don't like the cover though. But the music itself is pure delight.

FRUUPP "Future Legends" - 1973 - UK - Dawn DNLS 3053
