Khan - Space Shanty (1972)

Khan — Steve Hillage (guitars, vocals), Dave Stewart (organ, piano, skyceleste, marimbas), Nick Greenwood (bass, vocals) and Eric Peachy (drums) — recorded only one album, 1972's 'Space Shanty', which stands as one of finest and most underrated British prog-rock albums of the '70s. There's some terrific music here, including extended instrumental passages that stray into fiery jazz-rock territory. Hillage is truly in his element, as is Dave Stewart (no, he's NOT the Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics!) who went on to serve as a superb sideman in Bill Bruford's early '80s fusion outfit Bruford.
