Audience – Friend’s Friend’s Friend (1970)

Audience‘s middle-child between their highly collectible debut and more widely-heard third LP (The House on the Hill) strikes the perfect balance between the spiky melodicism of the former and the darker tones of the latter. The trebly yawl of Howard Werth and the crisp, flowing sax-work of (later Stackridge) brassman Keith Gemmel dominate the proceedings with a set of songs which transcend the idiomatic boundaries of prog, brass rock and folk to arrive at one simple classification – great music!
