Edward Bear - Eclipse (1970 canada, fascinating melodic progressive rock, 2012 Flawed Gems edition)



Edward Bear’s sophomore lp came in the form of Eclipse the summer in 1970. Featuring a healthy dose of well-written tight folk-inspired pop, it was an obvious continuation of the first album. The first single "You Can't Deny It" was issued amid high hopes. 

Also a graphic artist, Weldon designed a sleeve for the 45 that actually had something for the buyer to look at, one of rock's first 45 sleeves to have some actual thought put into it. Again the group received a good critical response and decent airplay. 

Soon after their second release, Danny Marks left the band and their got  more softened but gained much more popularity.
