And Rare Bird was no exception. They only recorded two albums on Charisma, which this compilation obviously covers. So you get material from the original 1969-70 lineup of vocalist/bassist Steve Gould, drummer Mark Ashton, and keyboardists Graham Field and David Kaffinetti. For their debut, you mostly get their shorter, more "pop-oriented" pieces like "Sympathy", "You Went Away", and "Bird on a Wing". Exception being "Beautiful Scarlet", being more progressive . The compilation album is a good example of the early Rare Bird music. The music is extremely imaginative and the talents of Gould, Field, Kaffinetti and Ashton are outstanding. The combination of drums, bass and two keyboards made for a unique sound that to my knowledge has not been used since.

Back in the 1970s, Charisma Records had a compilation division called Charisma Perspective, in which RARE BIRD's "Sympathy" was released on, back in 1976 (1990 was the year of Caroline CD reissue). There is nothing wrong with the music itself, but what's the purpose of compiling material from only their first two albums, "Rare Bird" (1969) and "As Your Mind Flies By" (1970)?
Rare Bird's unpolished but sturdy brand of early progressive rock was built on their heavy keyboard implementations, as they were one of the few bands to produce music without the employment of an electric guitar.
