Big Tree, Blue Sea

  • Running to 8 minutes 15 seconds, this Kooymans-Hay composition is the fourth and penultimate track on the 1973 Moontan album; heavily flute as well as guitar oriented, it might be described as eco-rock meets revolution. Barry Hay's flute playing has a distinct Jethro Tull feel to it; another fine effort from the Dutch band's vastly underrated magnum opus. >>
