"Waterloo" was short lived, but impressive and extreemely talented progressive outfit from Belgium founded in 1969 (before the song with the title won Eurovision contest for ABBA in 1974). Unfortunately, Belgian music remains obscure and unheard of for most of us (except few addicts), needless to say that the acts like "Waterloo" didn't make it into "scholastic" references on European rock.
"Waterloo" was built out of ashes and bones of two locally famous acts - "Adam's Recital" from Brussels (released one single for Eddie Barclay's French label before disbanding in 1969) and "Today's Version" from Ghent. Initially the winning formula of organ-driven power trio was tried, but quickly abandoned, and "Waterloo" started as quintet: Dirk Bogaert (vocals, flute), Gus Roan (guitar), Marc Malyster (organ), Jacky Mauer (drums) and Jean Paul Janssens (bass) - seasoned musicians, with classical training behind. Very few acquainted with the band insist on Keith Emerson and "Nice" being major influence, although I am not able to understand in which way - "Waterloo" played exceptional heavy prog rock, venturing into psychedelia and showing jazz influences. I would say, it's more close to "Beggar's Opera" (Act One, and there are similaritries (not influences!) with "Jethro Tull" and "Deep Purple". Organ and flute are superb, while vocals are pleasant and confident.
"Waterloo" debuted the same, 1969, year - next to Michel Polnareff (French pop/rock icon, quite innovative and scandalous - Polnareff; also largely ignored by English-speaking audience), and in 1970 came to London, where they recorded most of this album.

Great band great reissue label...Waterloo sounds like Writing on the wall to me at times. great heavy guitar work along with a swirling B-3. should appeal to fans of heavy to medium sounding prog.....
