The Polite Force progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! The Polite Force is the second album of British band Egg. It is often regarded as the band’s best work, being a much more serious effort than their debut album. The music is a fine example of early English progressive rock, bearing many similarities to Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Although the music of Egg does have occasional singing, it is mostly instrumental and as such relies on tight ensemble playing and interesting thematic and melodic material with extended chordal harmonies and irregular time signatures.

Dave Stewart - organ, piano, tone generator
Mont Campbell - bass, vocals
Clive Brooks – drums

Henry Lowther - trumpet (2)
Mike Davis - trumpet (2)
Bob Downes - tenor sax (2)
Tony Roberts - tenor sax (2)

Egg progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! This now legendary debut album by Egg featured the talents of Dave Stewart on Keyboards, Mont Campbell on Bass and Clive Brooks on Drums. Egg were associated with the so-called 'Canterbury' style of rock music pioneered by artists such as Caravan and Soft Machine. The trio produced music of startling originality and energy, drawing on influences ranging from rock to jazz to psychedelia to classical. This fusion resulted in one of the most enduring releases to appear on Decca's short lived Nova imprint and is now critically regarded as one of the more unique albums of the early 1970's. Re-mastered from the original tapes, the reissue includes three bonus tracks, including both sides of the bands only single and 'Movement 3' from the albums notorious opus 'Symphony No. 2', now restored in its rightful place in this extended composition.

2.While Growing My Hair
3.I Will Be Absorbed
