Regarded by many as the first Japanese progressive rock group, the Far East Family Band, whose first album release was under the name Far Out, released "The Cave" Down To The Earth in 1975. Influential in the creation of the band's distinctive psychedelic sound was keyboard player Kitaro, who went on to establish himself as a major new age artist in the '80s. Although the band was often categorized as new age too, their sound was distinctly progressive and often brought comparisons with Tangerine Dream and early Pink Floyd. The ethereal, space-rock quality of the band's music is here in abundance but the centerpiece is without doubt the title track, which starts off in a mellow mood but then becomes a killer guitar jam. For music fans that have yet to discover the delights of '70s Japanese psychedelic rock, "The Cave" Down To The Earth is a fabulous introduction. Housed in a die-cut sleeve with a printed inner bag. Includes the original LP insert.
