Formed in the English Midlands as a six- piece band in 1969, Galliard released their second LP New Dawn in 1970. The album has a strong progressive flavour, with an interesting brass section and great, strong melodies. It also features the great sitar breakout '' Ask for Nothing'' , certainly one of the highlights here, a trippy 9 minute long sitar raga.
Although their first album Strange Pleasure is widely known, New Dawn has remained somewhat unknown to collectors and is reissued on vinyl here for the first time. Original artwork and remastered sound. Limited to 500 copies."
