Henry Cow - Legend (1973)

The debut album from this British band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, viola, violin, piano, organ, recorder, saxophone, clarinet, whistle, flute, bells and vocals.

The band was supported by a sextet of players who added pixiphone and vocals.

I got their four studio albums and will review them during this spring.

This is among the handful of bands who created the RIO scene. The other bands was Etron Fou Leloublan, Stormy Six, Samla Mammas Manna and Univers Zero.

RIO is another word for avant-garde and that is what we get here.

Henry Cow is perhaps the most avant-garde bands of all the RIO bands. There is not much melodies here. Actually, there is none.

Some of the stuff on this album is decent and some is good. I am not a fan of this album at all as it is not that good and does not have much quality.

This is a decent album and just that.
