1976 Dave Greenslade – Cactus Choir

Cactus Choir is the first solo album by British keyboardist Dave Greenslade, released in 1976 soon after the disbandment of his own eponymous band, Greenslade. It is loosely based on a concept about the colonization of American West, and it features a simpler sound than previous Greenslade albums.
