More information: Trace was a symphonic heavy pop group that made three albums full of classically inspired original material. Now for the first time ever, the three Trace albums have been properly remastered from the original master tapes. In addition, each album contains bonus tracks, featuring outtakes, demos and live material.

The second album by Trace, BIRDS was originally released in 1975. It delivers exciting, often sumptuous, keyboard driven symphonic rock: the mainly instrumental music is loaded with virtuosic keyboard runs, swirling Hammond organ and majestic Mellotron eruptions from wizard Rick van der Linden, supported by a powerful and propulsive rhythm-section.
