Curved Air - The Rarities Series Vol. 1 Tapestry Of Propositions album review

Album Review

The song most definitely doesn’t remain the same

Propositions first appeared on Curved Air’s 1970 debut album Air Conditioning, clocking in at a lean three minutes and four seconds. However, on stage the song has become a springboard for the band to jam out and this live album, collated from performances in 2013 and 2014, puts the spotlight squarely on the improvisation. It opens and closes with Proposition itself, but in-between are 15 different examples of Curved Air’s ability to find strange, dark alleys to explore away from the brightly lit boulevard of the song.
