More information: A newly re-mastered and expanded edition of “Reflections On A Life”, the classic 1971 album by Welsh Progressive rock group BLONDE ON BLONDE. Featuring a line-up of David Thomas (vocals, guitar, bass, harmonica), Gareth Johnson (guitars), Graham Davies (bass, acoustic & electric guitars) and Les Hicks (drums), “Reflections on a Life” was the third and final album by the band (who hailed from Newport in South Wales). Issued in 1971, the record followed on from the band’s albums,“Contrasts” (recorded for the Pye label in 1969) and “Rebirth” (released by Ember Records in 1970).

Recorded at Rockfield studios in Monmouthshire in 1971, “Reflections on a Life” was a further step forward in creative terms for the Progressive Rock band and saw them create a conceptual work for their final album. The record also featured a guest appearance by Kips Brown from the band Spring on Mellotron.

This edition has been newly re-mastered from the original Ember masters and includes a bonus track. The booklet of this new edition features exclusive new interviews with David Thomas and Gareth Johnson, features previously unseen photographs and fully restores the original album artwork.
