The Old Man And The Sea - The Old Man And The Sea (1972)

Surprisingly good rock with shades of prog from Norway. Another one of those highly sought after one off records. 

Obvious nods to Atomic Rooster and Uriah Heep abound, to name but a few. The Monk Song Part 1 is like a cross between Beggars Opera and Crosby ,Stills,Nash....i kid you not!.... cool! Lots of tasty guitarwork,thick Hammond organ, especially on 'Going Blind' and the vocals are really good and more importantly undestandable.

Well worth checking out and for the most part well above average.

Klaus Doldingers Passport - Rmx Vol1 (2002)

Somewhat of a hit and miss remix album of many well known Passport songs.I believe Klaus had a hand on some of these tracks with the addition of some more instrumentation.

Best songs which work pretty well are 'Kat from Katmandu' 'Yellow Dream' 'Puzzle' and 'Albatross Song' Excellent production and probably more for Passport completists. Quite enjoyable though!

5. Snake
6. Cat From Katmandu
