Contrasts Urban Roar To Country Peace progressive

Enlarge this picture! The first ever release of the legendary 1972 "lost” second album self by FIELDS.

When the first line-up of RARE BIRD folded in early 1971, keyboard player GRAHAM FIELD formed this outfit with bass player, vocalist and guitarist ALAN BARRY and KING CRIMSON drummer ANDY McCULLOCH. Although the band failed to emulate the commercial success of FIELD’s previous group, their 1971 debut album was a magnificent example of British Progressive Rock at its finest.
Following the album’s release the band’s line-up changed with the departure of ALAN BARRY and the arrival of FRANK FARRELL from Supertramp.

This line-up recorded a follow-up album in 1972 that was perplexingly shelved by CBS Records and remained consigned to the vaults for over forty years. The original master tapes of this fine album were recently located and have been re-mastered as "Contrasts – From Urban Roar to Country Peace” with the full involvement of Graham Field. Now Esoteric Recordings presents the album for the first time with this release.


"Contrasts – From Urban Roar to Country Peace” features a booklet with an essay by Sid Smith and interview with Graham Field.
