Magna Carta - Lord of the Ages (Hobo Review 1973)

From an unpublished issue of Hobo November 1973.

Record review in brief by Dave (former Indian Summer Roadie) and Trev Teasdel

Lord of the Ages - Magna Carta
It's hard to capture the beauty of this album in words. It's the kind of album to play when you've stopped rushing about and wanting to relax. Lyrics are poetic but not corny, blending nicely with the haunting melodies, not unsimilar to Crosby Stills, Nash and Young, or Simon and Garfunkle. The mood shifts to a funky sound in the second half and then back again. What the hell are you reading this for? If you are going to get into this type of music, go and grab a listen and let it speak for itself.

Dave and Trev October 1973 for Hobo Magazine.

The October 1973 issue wasn't printed or released owing to financial restraints (run on a shoestring budget) but this is what's left of that issue in draft with the review handwritten.
