"Released in March 1971, Arena was the second and final album by the group Marsupilami. Initially a folk-based group, the band evolved into one of the most adventurous, if unsung, bands of the early 1970s, producing two stunningly original Mellotron-soaked albums. Featuring a line-up of brothers Fred and Leary Hasson (lead vocals, harmonica and keyboards respectively), Dave Laverock (guitar), Richard Lathan Hicks (bass), Jessica Stanley Clarke (flute, vocals) and Mike Fouracre (drums), Marsupilami drew early comparisons to such contemporaries as Quintessence and Gryphon, although in truth the group were far more experimental and powerful. Produced by Peter Bardens (soon to form Camel), the CD release of Arena will be welcomed by the legions of progressive rock aficionados. With this 24-bit remastered edition from Esoteric Recordings, the conceptual Arena has never sounded better. The first-ever official UK CD release for this classic album -- now 24-bit remastered."
