(Fields - Just one album. One very rare album)
Both bands have one person in common; Graham Field who has been probably one of the more neglected keyboard players in the 1970's Prog-rock scene. Field was a founding member of Rare Bird and left when the band decided a change in direction was called for. He regrouped and formed Fields and was quickly snapped up by CBS Records in the UK. The result was one album and a couple of singles before CBS lost interest and Fields broke up.
Field went into semi-retirement, but is rumored to be getting active again.
But in the meantime he did leave a very auspicious first (and only) album in 1971, which has seen a brief reissue on CD in Europe and Japan, but nowhere else.
A Friend Of Mine is the track you will hear when you hit the play button.
