Notes About the Release
The group’s sophomore, and final LP for Reflection records, MK II modernized Steamhammer’s explorations of classic blues and rock ‘n roll. Before leaving to join Tangerine Dream in 1970, multi-instrumentalist Steve Jolliffe marched their sound into new directions with tracks like “Amiran”, named for band leader Kieran White’s daughter, which features a dancing 6/8 time signature. “Supposed to Be Free” is a crystallization of the band’s songwriting ability, a sonic adventure showcasing their jazz, prog, and psychedelic influences across six minutes of soaring solos and face-melting crescendos.
