Chilliwack - Chilliwack II (1971 canada, sensational 2nd album, psych prog experimental rock)

A few words about the Music. Our objective in the studio was to create as much life into the music as we could. Side one contains songs we hope are suitable for AM play. "Changing Reels" on side two is a long sectional composition. The lead vocals in the last section are improvations, and the song was written around them afterwards.

"Music For A Quiet Time" was performed by Bi;ll and Claire  sitting in an echo chamber for a couple of hours. "Night Morning" is the rewsult os a studio full of intruments and microphones set up to record any gree-form music we might want to play.

Ross sat at the organ and started to play sounds with hands, head and elbows. Bill and Claire joined in with piano, flute and vocals, and the piece grew from there. We hope there is something here for  you.
