Jade Warrior - Floating World
(Island ILPS-9290 UK-74 VG+ 300:-)

Once a symbol of the Vertigo label's adventurism, Jade Warrior's lack of sales led to their dismissal in 1972, which inevitably resulted in the band's disintegration.

However, the Warrior's multi-instrumentalists, Jon Field and Tony Duhig, soldiered on and secured a deal with Island. "Floating World" was the new-look Jade's debut, a concept album themed around the Japanese philosophy of Ukiyo, with the songs revolving around two interrelated series of compositions.
John, Elton - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
(DJM DJLPD-1001 UK-73 VG+ 275:-)

The crowning achievement of a young Elton John – and the record that took an already-great run of earlier records, and pushed it even further with a new depth of songwriting and imagination!

This double album set isn't exactly a concept album – at least not one with a unified narrative – but it works beautifully as a set of little pictures of the world seen through the eyes of Elton and Bernie Taupin – both at the height of their powers, and able to balance catchy commercial tunes with some grittier undercurrents. The album is filled with classics!
