Satin Whale – Desert Places
The band were no doubt influenced by many of the bands that had preceded them 'Jane', 'Sahara', 'Os Mundi', et al.,
Blending powerful rock ballads with dramatic instrumentals that featured classical and jazz elements, and a notable comparison with 'Camel' and Canterbury bands, in the use of keyboards and flute.
Their debut album on Brain "Desert Places" is a fine example of this genre, featuring lengthy tracks with surging instrumentals, complex arrangements and quite an individual song style. The strong keyboards, flute and saxophone, all add up to an impressive concoction.
