Stockholm 1974 [no label, 1CD]

Radiohuset Studio 4, Stockholm, Sweden; September 24, 1974. Very good FM (or Pre-FM).

The Earth Band combines the stylistic approach of progressive rock with Mann’s jazz-influenced Moog synthesizer playing and keen ear for melody. Beside producing their own material, a staple of the band’s music and live performances from the beginning has been also relying on covers of songs by other modern pop/rock artists, notably Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, in their progressive rock style. - wikipedia
