as the headline screamed on page 17 of the newspaper MIKEAL RIKFORS was reading for the gatefold sleeve pics of ROMANY. That was great.
Not a mainpoint of the album, but thought it would be another fun fact to be mentioned here! Ihave both the US and Import Versions and for one the gatefold pic of the group(right side) seems to be 'darker' in its reproduction than the US one.
Another point I want to bring out (oh-oh), is that the entrance of MIKEAL really brought a new kind of format to the songs, even though there were only two self-contained (band written) tracks on the album. The acoustic was a prominent focus for at least 6 of the twelve tracks recorded.
And what was interesting about this record, too, revolved around his rich baritone (onmany of the tracks), but seem to transcend the lead singer(verse) bv singers(chorus) theme. In particular Im referrring to Deleware Taggett. Kind of got away from the 'assigned roles' groups fall under (such as Uriah Heep but came to be diff when John Lawton came into the fold; basically has to do with the timbre of the voice) This acoustic aggregation also allowed a nice vocal delievery from 'the guys' on BLUE IN THE MORNING. (Just wanted to bring this out since I hvent seen it mentioned) Till the next...peace to all
