Third Ear Band - 1970 - Third Ear Band

Progressive rock group Third Ear Band evolved within the London alternative and free-music scene of the mid 1960s. Paul Minns – oboe, Glen Sweeney – percussion, Ursula Smith – cello and Richard Coff – violin and viola. Members came from The Giant Sun Trolley and The People Band to create an improvised music drawing on Eastern raga forms, European folk, experimental and medieval influences. They recorded their first session in 1968 for Ron Geesin  which was released under the pseudonym of The National-Balkan Ensemble on one side of a Standard Music Library disc. Their first actual album, Alchemy, was released on the EMI Harvest label in 1969, followed by Air, Earth, Fire, Water (aka Elements) in 1970. They opened The Rolling Stones Free Concert at Hyde Park on 5 July 1969. They recorded two soundtracks, the first in 1970 for an animated film by Fuchs of Abelard and Heloise and then in 1971 for Roman Polanski's film of Macbeth. After various later incarnations and albums they finally disbanded in 1993 owing to leader and percussionist Glen Sweeney's ongoing health problems. Third Ear Band was the second album by the Third Ear Band, released in 1970. It consists of four improvised pieces, "Air", "Earth", "Fire", and "Water", and is therefore sometimes known as "Elements".
