More Info:

6CD box set bringing together all of the CDs previously released in the Curved Air Rarities series, which are now out of print. Housed in a hard case box, it is a must- have for any serious collector of progressive rock. The box set features a booklet with brand new notes from Jerry Ewing, editor of PROG Magazine, in which he interviews Sonja Kristina and provides a new, fresh perspective on these recordings. The box set includes:'Tapestry of Propositions', an hour-long version of 'Propositions', recorded live at 14 different locations during 2013/14. 'Curved Space', previously released as Francis Monkman's 'Jam' but now featuring two unreleased bonus tracks. 'Infinity' featuring all-new 2016 studio recordings. 'The Second British Rock Meeting 1972' featuring the only known recording of this line- up improvising, the last track is an extended jam on their hit, 'Vivaldi' lasting over 30 minutes. 'Live Under The Bridge' featuring a performance of the legendary 'Air Conditioning' album, in it's entirety. Curved Air formed in 1970 and brought together the influences of rock, folk and classical music into their work, developing a fascinating progressive fusion sound. They went on to become a seminal band within the British progressive rock movement who have endured the test of time and still perform live to this day. For many, their enigmatic and beguiling lead singer, Sonja Kristina, is seen as the first lady of the progressive rock.
