CARDINAL


Cardinal is a band that Eric was in with Richard Davies. This album is 
a favorite of mine. The best way to describe it is, The Bee Gees 
meets "Atom Heart Mother" with a bit of a Christmas feel thrown in.

This is a bit of a lower budget album than Eric's solo albums. For 
the string arrangements Eric had to use keyboards due to the fact 
that they couldn't afford a good string section. It still sounds quite 
good considering. The trumpets are real(of course) and as brilliant as ever.
