Format: Audio CD
A concept album from the 70's is hardly an original idea but this second installment of a proposed trilogy brings together members of BJH along with Justin Hayward, Maddy Prior, Noel Redding, Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart and other known stars of the day to present part two of David Rohl's Tolkienesque epic EYE OF WENDOR.

Although some of the production and ideas throughout seem somewhat dated the overall sound, feel and musicianship is exceptionally good. The mellotron and assorted keyboards of Woolly Wolstenholme dominate much of the proceedings and the orchestral moments are lush and relaxing. The story is the usual convulated epic of proto-prog/art rock endeavours of the time but that does not detract from what is a beautifully performed piece of symphonic rock. The Mandalaband was never intended to be a working/touring band and so they could and did take liberties with studio technology knowing it would never have to be performed live, this too was not unusual as The Alan Parson's Project, for example, was originally intended to be only a studio gathering of selected musicians.

The good news for those who have both albums is that parts 3 & 4 are scheduled for release soon, October 09 and Summer {British} 2010. It seems David Rohl, after a long time of inactivity has decided to resurrect the idea of the Mandalaband. That being the case the first two releases then become essential listening. It's a pleasant listen by some great musicians of the day and as good a piece symphonic rock as you are likely to encounter.

Recommended and still available through the BJH website.

Format: Audio CD
The new line up in the place of that one used on their debut album, includes the keyboardist for BJH Wolstenholme, Maddy Prior (remarkable singer and princess as well!!) and Justine Hayward, who look like the perfect characters for this concept, introducing a fairy-tale land, called "Wendor", full with magicians, princes and of course witches too.It's a tolkeniesque mood, in the typical fantasy vein: and moreover the instrumental title track is the best example of their strong orchestral arrangements,naturally regarding also of some more rocking classic parts, till the end...in my opinion the mellotron is more suitable than the harmonica, but nevermind, as the fairy-tale works well once again! (in fact it was used as a soundtrack for a norwegian tv serial), expecially if you consider the other instrumental "Ride to the city" and the special song "Like the wind", where Maddy Prior sings in a remarkable and sensible manner!! Finally "Dawn of a new day" is introduced by a nice prince (Justine Hayward)whose performance is stunning, followed by "Departure from Carthilias" and "Elsethea", which are the memorable conclusion of a remarkable fantasy album,a proto-prog version of The Enid.
Highly recommended,expecially if you prefer the soft romantic symphonic moments in the place of those ones- more complex and epic too- in the vein of bands such as for example Dice (listen to the splendid album "Four riders of the apocalypse") ...however make your choice, but in my opinion both albums can complete every important prog collection!!

It's 1978, and Mandalaband have gotten together to put a science fiction story into music: a concept album. With 10CC, Justin Hayward, Barclay James Harvest, and the Mandalaband itself, how can you miss? Add a pretty good Lord of the Rings story (the drawings resemble some of the Hidebrandt Brothers' stuff), and you've got a receipe for a dynamite LP. Most of the music and vocals are superb, even gorgeous at times, but I can't say that I liked every bit of it. That's not a knock on the LP: different people have different tastes. Justin Hayward is, as usual, the standout (Does he ever make a bad cut?). Buy the LP or CD (if you can find either).
