Niemen - Strange Is This World 1972

With a backing band including the members of SBB, Czesław Niemen's first English-language album is a wild trip through the spacey, psychedelic territory. Nieman's vocal performance brings to mind the mighty lungs of old-time psychedelic greats like Arthur Brown, whilst the musical backing warps these songs - including the Otis Redding I've Been Loving You Too Long and the title track, which is a mutation of a track from significantly earlier in Nieman's career - into weird, not-quite-ambient atmospheric jams. The end result is a fascinatingly original collaboration between some of the great names of the 70s-era Polish prog which will be of interest to all fans of the trippier end of prog.
