Refugee - S/T - 3CD
Digitally remastered and expanded three CD edition of the 1974 album by legendary progressive rock trio Refugee. Formed in 1973 by former members of The Nice Lee Jackson (bass, vocals), Brian Davison (drums) and keyboard virtuoso Patrick Moraz, Refugee recorded one classic studio album during their short career, which was issued in 1974.
Taking the template established by The Nice (and their keyboard player Keith Emerson who later was part of Emerson, Lake & Palmer), Refugee earned praise upon it's release and saw the band gain a loyal following. In May 1974, they recorded a memorable performance for BBC Radio One's In Concert program which appears as part of this set for the first time. A UK tour saw an appearance at Newcastle's City Hall in June 1974 which was recorded by the band's sound engineer and forms CD Three of the set. Thanks to the profile of Patrick Moraz being raised by his work with Refugee, he soon joined Yes, replacing the recently departed Rick Wakeman.
