Room – Pre-Flight

Room Pre-Flight (UK, 1970). Bluesy structures, brassy arrangements and harmolodic interplay, replete with she-belter Jane Kevern, whose manly tone bore far more resemblance to her continental sisters like Inga Rumpf (Frumpy) or Floortje Klomp (Mr. Albert Show) than to any of her lithe compatriots. Admittedly, the first launch is a no-go, with the nine minute “Pre-flight part I & II” hitting turbulence after the promising riffs at the launch pad. Man’s triumph over nature does manage to prevail, however, when the second half of this disc soars sky high with “Andromeda”, ”War” and “Cemetery Junction (Part I & II)”.
