Spirit a band that was successful enough to break the progressive and psychedelic rock barrier and beyond dating back to 1968.The band actually experimented with the idea of jazz/hard rock fusion.
They started touring with Led Zeppelin in 1968 as their supporting act, by 1976 their albums moved well enough into the mainstream that they started to chart and held their own.
Their catalog consists of 19 studio and live albums from 1967 to 1997. Their early direction got into shape thanks to Randy California (singer/songwriter/guitarist) who got his chops touring with Jimi Hendrix. (The drummer Ed Cassidy was Randy California’s step-father).
Their essential album was titled ‘Clear’.
