As We Appear - Haystack
Haystack were, by all accounts (one account), a leading force in the New Zealand progressive country rock scene, and did very well on TV talent show The Entertainers and radio's Rock Quest in the mid-'70s. The extent of their progressiveness, however, seems to stretch to sticking Moog on top of some pleasant-enough MOR folky numbers. First cut 'Nigel' is probably the best ever song about someone called Nigel. 'Let's Go to London' is nicely atmospheric, although the atmosphere is not that of London. Generally nice.
