Bubbling under: You always can change (Alquin)
Alquin (image credit). Their jazz-influenced progressive rock style on the debut album Marks and the follow-up Mountain Queen seemed to mark the start of a career as brilliant (well, in local Dutch terms) as that of Kayak. Their best effort from that time is the beautiful ballad You always can change from their 1972 debut album, which recalls some of the atmosphere of Lou Reed's contemporary Perfect day. In three more years, the group was gone, after an unsuccessful attempt to shift to a more blues and hard rock influenced style. A waste.
