Fruup were a 1970 progressive rock band, which originated in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Fruupp is a great band if Gabriel‘s Genesis and Renaissance please you because Fruupp is the perfect mix of these two bands. In the vein of Renaissance are securely the plots between melody and soli, also rhythmics. In the vein of Genesis are securely the various rhythm changes, also with particular rhythmic figures, not conventional. So the final result is complex in rhythm and easy in sound electric symphonic prog. That is perfect still today! This album should be part of any serious prog rock/symphonic rock collection.
The album comes with 8 (!) sided coversize insert sheet with full bandstory by formerly manager and author Paul Charles, with all lyrics, rare photos etc. Great stuff. Don‘t miss it!
