Country Lane - Substratum (1973)

Not a favourite, just a well known rare gem... This is another "Splendid Records" release, the same label as "Pacific Sound" for instance. In my opinion, this is just a shy prog/folk album not hard enough to represent a major swiss nugget. Too many vocals, maybe too conformist. Just one or two strange dialogs in the beginning of some songs which bring nothing special to the album. I think you got it, I don't like that album which could be just called a joke. Give it a try and make your own opinion !
