Jade Warrior - Kites ( 1976 )



The asian/ oriental elements are more present on 'Kites' and on the whole is more like there 'previous 'Floating World' album with it's subtle and sometimes more intense instrumental ambient fusion . 

The 'King Crimson' influence is very apparent.

The second side of 'Kites' is one long suite and is one of this recordings highlights.

Another excellent album!
