3 stars Busker is one of the many obscure bands that emerged from mid '70's progressive rock realm from Canada. They had quite enough albums released over the years but with all that they remain quite unknown to larger public. I had hard time finding some of their work, e\anything but the last album, released on CD, the rest were impossible to find until 3 month ago when I resieved a copy of this second album from 1979 named Impressions of a city. I was very glad because their albums are rare in any format. So, Busker is a symphonic prog band formed by Steve McCann / Keyboards, Bass, Guitars, Vocals and Percussion and Randy Dawdy / Drums, Congas, Tympani, Vocals and Percussion in early to mid '70's in Ontario, Canada. The music offerd on this album is pleasent, not very complex from quite good symphonic prog with lots of keybords arrangements to jazzy interplay and here and there some more mainstrem rock aproch, not bad in the end, a soup that goes quite well to my ears. The voice is pleasent and all instrumental passages are ok, nothing grounbreaking or very original but pleasent most of the time, the music has that special american feel, even they are canadians. So, a good album , very hard to find, but if you get the chance to take a listen worth some spins. 3 stars, I like it even is far from being an essential listning. Similar at some point with Carnegie, but less keybord orientated.
