Rare Bird - Somebody's Watchingdotdotdot
artworkThis is Rare Bird's third LP. They are one of progressive rock's lost bands, with a sound that's both innocent and pompous, simple and arty. "Somebody's Watching" includes a very cool extended jam based on Enio Morricone's main score from For A Few Dollars More.

Spaghetti Prog Surf (Instrumental)

This is a splendid jam erupting from Enio Morricone's "For A Few Dollars More" with power and abandon. Rhythmic and writhing like a soulful nougat, this only falls short of perfect in the too-jammy midsection. If you edit it out, this really rocks. Great guitar, solid keys, thumping bass, and excellent drums. It even almost feels aquatic.
