It gets so hot in the city
"Don't want to know, I don't want to go,
I don't want to go back into the city.
It's just a long long long lonely taxi ride
THE MARK-ALMOND BAND - THE CITY
Mark–Almond were an English band of the late 1960s and early 1970s,
who worked in the territory between rock and jazz.
In 1970 Jon Mark and Johnny Almond formed Mark-Almond
The melancholy tones of saxophonist Almond were an integral part of the group's sound
and Almond frequently played flutes as well, including the rarely-heard bass flute. Characterized by a blend blues and jazz riffs,latin beats, and a mellow rock aesthetic, and in contrast the heavier guitar driven rock of his contemporaries, composer and band leader Mark worked at producing warm and melodic works.
UNFINISHED SYMPATHY FOR THIS ONE..
