‘Excalibur III (The Origins)’ the last studio album of ALAN SIMON's famous Trilogy was released in February, 2012. The production is close to perfection, the magnificent booklet is made by artist Mick Toole… Ambitious and visionary work that brings together a pleiad of legendary musicians: John Helliwell (Supertramp) alongside Mick Fleetwood, Jeremy Spencer (Fleetwood Mac), Martin Barre (Jethro Tull) and John Wetton (King Crimson, UK, Asia), Les Holroyd (Barclay James Harvest) and Bruce Guthro (Runrig), Moya Brennan (Clannad) and Fairport Convention, jazzman Didier Lockwood and keyboardist Billy Preston. There’re some talented guests of new generation: Skilda (singing), Konan Mevel (flutist/piper), Cйcile Corbel (harp), Pat O'May & James Wood (guitars), Dun Aengus (vox)...
What listener should expect on this work of art? Inventive melodies and impressive musicianship, a remarkable, brilliantly conceived collection of songs, elements of prog sensibility mixed with ethnic experimentations, flows and ebbs, emotional vocals…

Highly recommended!
