I am going to repost some of my earlier blogs with new links starting with this vinyl rip of Pete Goalby's first band "Fable"
THIS IS MY OWN VINYL RIP
FABLE - A BAND OF TODAY
Two or three months before this Album was made, a friend of mine rang to say that he had seen a group he thought I might be interested in. A tape of their songs was sent to me and immediately I was impressed not only with the bands writing talent , but also with their arrangements and musicianship. The group was 'of course' Fable. I was even more impressed when I saw them live; their sound separation was excellent and communication with the audience was immediate, all due to their superb stage presentation.
Having suffered for so long the era of the "35 minute riff groups" It was refreshing for me to hear a band with such a professional approach. The variety in their music makes this Album, in my opinion, a very listen able one indeed and for a band who have only recently formed there is little doubt their best is yet to come.
Every member of Fable has the ability to be a "Star" musician in their own right but because of each ones awareness to contribute to the overall sound,the music never becomes cluttered or colourless
