This album is a real rarity, not for the style of music nor its interpreters, the strange thing is that this music was produced especially for a film and not a vintage film! It was used to accompany the notable Belgian cyclist Eddy Merckx (?). It was somewhat controversial the mixture of Renaissance music and the documentary about this cyclist in those times.

An awesome LP example from this vocal group.

Another fundamental brick in the prog-rock music wall.
This band started its career by doing artistic cover versions from tunes composed by other people, and this third album presents their own matured composing skills. Earlier "The Beat Goes On" was more like an abstract artsy tryout when compared to this masterpiece in my opinion..
