Intergalactic Touring Band (1977)

I’ve long loved this album, especially Dave Cousins gripping “Heartbreaker” – the best track the Strawbs never recorded – and Annie Haslam‘s beautiful “Reaching Out”, in addition to the sprightly Supertramp pastiche “First Landing”. But all the songs are good, even Ben E. King‘s discoish “Love Station”.

The first three aforementioned cuts, plus the space-age soulfulness of the opening “Silver Lady” and the melodramatic Meatloaf-sung finale “Keeper Keep Us”, can be heard below:
