ART - ROME TAKE AWAY THREE


Known briefly as ART in-between the original incarnation as The VIP's then, finally, Spooky Tooth, this single shows the Mike Harrison (lead vocals) led group at the crossroads between beat (as heard from the VIP's) and the heavier, more prog sounds of Spooky Tooth. The group released one LP as ART and then morphed into Spooky Tooth very shortly afterwords where they found their greatest success as an album oriented band in both the US and Europe.

I find the the gloomy, minor key verses to be especially interesting and Harrison shows off the depth of his vocals very well on this track.

from 1967...
