Lagger Blues Machine - Born to be alone on a white desert island 1972

"Many experienced record collectors regard Lagger Blues Machine as the very best Belgian group from the early seventies. Listening to their eponymous album it's easy to understand why. LBM combined odd elements from Soft Machine, Moving Gelatine Plates, Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Magma and 20th century classical music to a very original and largely instrumental rock ensemble style. This made them pioneers of the archetypical Belgian dark symphonic style that later evolved into groups such as Univers Zero and Present. LBM mainly used a powerful combination of electric/acoustic guitar, organ/electric piano and sax/flute playing very complex themes to a restless rhythmical backing. All tracks were written by the two keyboard players. The main piece was a "Symphony" in two parts." Review from Scented Gardens of the Mind book by Mr Dag Erik Asbjornsen
