TOUCH - TOUCH (ECLCD 1005) CD
Released in the UK as THIS IS TOUCH on Deram, with a fancy centre opening cover and a big poster, Touch were one of the few genuinely progressive American bands to gain a major label release.
I was convinced that I'd reviewed this before though, when it came out on the American Renaissance label circa 1991 or so, but I can't find it! Anyway, aside from the obvious Vanilla Fudge and Jefferson Airplane roots, Touch were quite typical of the Deram prog sound, with strong classical elements and a rich palette of instrumental textures. Unlike any of the above though, the Touch sound now feels dated, rooted in the 1960's, but it's still a fine album. Sometimes very arty and rambling, then occasionally bolstered up by really powerful songs, the mixture can be quite intoxicating. Although Touch do not resemble Skin Alley at all, there are also Czar and Gracious elements in their blend, and in fact so many elements at play that I don't really have the space here to go any deeper.
The Renaissance CD had 15 minutes of bonus material, and this also adds two tracks featured on the special Renaissance archive sampler, and a single version of We Finally Met Today, adding up to another really good value disc.
