Orion - Blue Room (Belgium 1993) @320

.

Over the last few years Orion has developed into an extremely professional band, completely able to catch your attention, with only instrumentals at that. Every one of the twelve tracks is a solid piece of work, the musical interpretations are full of atmosphere, now fragile, then exuberant, but always of a high technical standard. For Orion this is another step towards international status. Without a doubt this is one of the best folk bands in Belgium."

Bought this as a tape in Concarneau at the Fete des Filets Bleus in 1993 having heard one of the group busking in the street. It sounded great then and still sounds great today.
