Windchase - Flight Call mp3 album

Flight call', the original closing track, reminds me some cheesy late 60s melody and that's all. Overall, with a fairly correct production and counting with skilful band members we may say that "Symphinity" is a good album however not really essential. WINDCHASE was formed by the singer/guitarist and keyboardist from the then recently disbanded SEBASTIAN HARDIE. They even went as far to name this band after the title of their final album "Windchase". I would describe this music as lighter and softer than SEBASTIAN HARDIE with lyrics that don't do much for me. Even the mellotron doesn't sound as good as it did with the parent band.

Flight Call is probably the weakest of all the songs here. It's simple, laid back and nothing special. Also, the artwork is a nice change from the Sebastian Hardie covers.

Sebastian Hardie were Australia's first symphonic rock band. They formed in Sydney in 1967 as Sebastian Hardie Blues Band but dropped the 'Blues Band' reference when they became pop-oriented. By 1973 they developed a more progressive rock style, and later performed as Windchase, but disbanded in 1977.

Windchase - Symphinity (1977). After the dissolution of Sebastian Hardie, Mario Millo and Toivo Pilt formed the group Windchase and released the album "Symphinity in 1977, with symphonic-melodic style, characteristic of Millo and Pilt. Subsequently, the guitarist and main songwriter Mario Millo, continued a solo career and released his first studio album Epic III in 1979 and 1983 released a second album "Human Games"

Windchase released only the album "Symphinity", but it's a very solid and enjoyable work of typical 70's symphonic progressive rock that most fans of the genre will enjoy. The sound is a bit more upbeat and the mood more varied than what it was in Sebastian Hardie. The album opens with the atmospheric piano tones of "Forward We Ride" that glides into the excellent "Horsemen to Symphinity"  . The closer "Flight Call" is slightly more lightweight than most of the album, but still quite nice and enjoyable. Mario Millo/vocals,guitars,mandolin,tubular bells.
