Moroccan Roll

Moroccan Roll is the second album from Brand X, this one features a vocal song with Phil singing on “Sun In The Night” the rest of the album is tinged with eastern themes with the Jazz Rock fusion that Brand X delved into!

By now the Brand X line up had experience of touring as a group and I think this reflects in the quality of music the group just seem tighter than the previous album.
