Bruford - Biography
« on: January 06, 2016, 06:15:27 PM »
Bruford was a band formed around drummer Bill Bruford. Together with key members Jeff Berlin on Bass & Vocals, Allan Holdsworth (later replaced by John Clark) on Guitar & Dave Stewart on Keyboards, the band recorded their first album with the title "Feels Good to Me" in 1977.

In 1978 they recorded the album "One of a Kind", which to my opinion is their essential album and which is often seen a masterpiece of progressive music.
This albums features songs like Hell's Bells, One of a Kind and of course Sahara of Snow.

In 1979 they recorded an album called the "Bruford Tapes". On this album Allan Holdsworth was replaced by John Clark.

In 1980 this line-up recorded and released Gradually Going Tornado.

Bruford is sometimes seen as one of drummer Bill Bruford's pre-Earthworks groups.
Alltough the albums are often listed under Bill Bruford, Bruford was the actual groupname.

I still have all four albums standing in my attick on good old vinyl. I hope to lay my hand on a CD-version of One of a Kind someday, because that's my absolute favourite.

Music was my first love and still an important part of my life.
