roger powell’s air pocket

Album-air-pocketM-frog-powell

Some solo work by Utopia keyboardist Roger Powell in the vein of Steve Hillage solo, foreshadowing Ozric Tentacles … The “Air Pocket” lp (Bearsville 1980) has been reissued by Edsel (2012-02, EDSS 1064) on a split cd with M. Frog, with a so-so single only bonus track. “Lunar plexus” is the highlight.
