Raven presents for the first time on one CD two timeless albums by legendary American hard rock band CAPTAIN BEYOND. With superb quality audio, detailed liner notes, color booklet. Originally released in 1972 and 1973 respectively, Captain Beyond and Sufficiently Breathless are considered to be tour de forces of the American Hard Rock tradition, albums brimming with a multitude of catchy riffs, astonishingly adept musicianship and a palpable sense of drama. Formed in 1971 by master musicians Larry 'Rhino' Reinhardt (guitar; ex-Iron Butterfly), Lee Dorman (bass; ex-Iron Butterfly), Bobby Caldwell (drums; ex-Johnny Winter) and Rod Evans (vocals; ex-Deep Purple), Captain Beyond forged an identity of sheer class with their sophisticated and soaring brand of progressive hard rock. Captain Beyond boasts a conceptual flow of music, with riffs and songs combining seamlessly to form distinct suites of music yet it remains as a whole. 'Dancing Madly Backwards (On a Sea of Air)', 'Raging River Of Fear' and 'Thousand Days Of Yesterdays (Time Since Come and Gone)' are at the pinnacle of the 1970s hard rock genre. Sufficiently Breathless features a heavier space rock / astral blues vibe with added elements thrown in for good measure, from vibrant Latin funk ('Bright Blue Tango') and heavy metal with a funk base ('Drifting in Space') to progressive fusion ('Starglow Energy').
