Supersister - Present from Nancy (1970)

Supreme, guitar-free Dutch prog. Off-kilter time signatures, lots of piano, flute, and fuzzy Hammond organ. It's mostly instrumental, but when the vocals eventually come in on "Memories Are New", they're surprisingly subtle and airy. I say "surprisingly" because the first time I heard this record, the herky-jerky music had me expecting some kinda over-the-top, quirky vocal stylings, and I was quite pleasantly surprised to hear some nice, Colin Blunstone-y singing instead.

4. 11-8
