When i was 7 years old i listened bands like Deep Purple, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and Kiss (!). Then, one day, when i was lookin for a LP of Kiss, my cousins found an album of a rare German Band called Triumvirat. Then they (my cousins) known the progressive rock but i didn't. For recomendation of my cousins i bought the album with the title "Old Loves Die Hard". That was my first contact with the wonderful world of the Progressive Rock. Twenty seven years after i love this album yet. With the internet and more sites of information about the progressive rock i can know more this wonderful band. Although the masterpieces more recognized are Illusions on a Double.. and Spartacus, this album is excellent. Maybe more commercial, whatever the composition and perfomance are of very high quality. Moreover, the production is better that his predecessors Spartacus and Illusions.. The highlights of the album are "Panic On 5th Avenue" and "The History of Mystery" (Part one and two), whatever the instrumental "A Day In A Life" is a track very nice and one of my favourites of all times, soft at the beginning and hard at the final. The album hold the classic style of triumvirat, finest symphonic rock. Curiosly this band wasn't supported in Europe in his time, I'm not sure what is the cause (a poor Clon of ELP?, to me this point of view is very very bad, terrible and very poor to describe Triumvirat). I though that is time to justice for Triumvirat (with the help of EMI with the reissue of the early collection) and finally to be recognized like THE GREATEST BAND OF GERMAN PROGRESSIVE ROCK (Triumvirat is my Top Ten of best band of Progressive Rock of all times). I recommend this album to all fan of progressive rock, specialy for those about to symphonic rock. For last, the only disappointment is the change of the artwork. Personally i prefer thousand times the original artwork with the cover with the little white rat observed with a magnifying glass.

"Illusions in a Double Dimple" is the best album recorded by Triumvirat, and "Old Loves Die Hard" ranks at the second position in that list. Helmut Köllen went out to pursue a solo career (unfortunately, he had just completed his first solo album when he died), and was replaced by Dick Frangenberg (the original bass player) and English singer Barry Palmer. Highlights: the title track (beautiful), "A Cold Worried Lady" (moving), "A Day in the Life" (amazing).

This album is progressive rock music. However, there is some mainstream catchiness to it nonetheless. The vocal numbers tend to either uptempo numbers, like The history of mystery, or plaintive piano ballads, like 'Cold old worried lady', which is suicidal.

The instrumental parts alternate between softer, piano driven parts to uptempo, energetic bits full of synthesiser imagery and sonic audio soundscapes. Despite this being a German Band, the lyrics are in English, as sung by Barry Palmer. The music is written by the band's keyboardist, Fritz. His piano playing has a classical orientation. The instrumental parts to 'History of mystery' has an almost disco beat to it, but the vocal parts, especially with the driven delivery, have a rock feeling to them. There is quite a bit of improvised soloing on the record. My favourite track is 'a day in the live', it begins as spaced-out synth driven psychedelia, then there's some classical piano that's very beautiful and then finale is a bit rocking. The song is actually divided into three part. The music is all very good and some of it is quite original, and you can understand most of the lyrics that are sung, so I'd rate it somewhere around 4/5.

Well, you know that usually I don't like the so called "derivative prog bands" (think of Pendragon as Marillion's or Camel's clones since the early eighties, Pentwater as a reply to Yes in late sixties/early seventies, then also these "Triumvirat" in the seventies, a derivative band a-la ELP, whose music fortunately was more focused on their songwriting, despite They reached their peek with "Spartacus" only)...but apart from my introduction above, I think of this "Old Loves..." as a good and more "commercial" album, characterized by a vocalist- Barry Palmer-in a kind of trouble in his role, even though He's well coordinated by Jürgen Fritz here, true master mind of the band, which brings about a mood a-la Rick Wakeman regarding the melody and a-la K. Emerson (in a more simple way) regarding the harmony, like within "Panic on 5th Avenue"; while for instance "History of Mystery" is a weak episode, reminding me of the atmosphere inside "Love Beach" by ELP, that I don't like very much...and on the same wave there's "I Believe" (the opener), the most commercial track of the present album, which seems to be quite "journeysque" (unfortunately without Steve Perry on vocals); but the lyrics are quite good after all!! Instead the arrangement regarding the ballad ""A Day In the Life" is reminiscent of a mood which was quite typical in late seventies, even though the piano is evolving towards a more original melody at the piano...Then I have some doubts about the lyrics of "A Cold Old Worried Lady", in my opinion not so inspiring (like Palmer's vocals), as well as about the final title track, which is neither powerful nor so epic, but here the vocalist performs a better job- in a soft style- and such feature could be enough to make their work more suitable for the lovers of other different and more simple music genres (actually this German Band never rechead a commercial success, but nevermind...)
Interesting product, not their best one in my opinion!
