Formed in the winter of 1968, Brainbox was a legendary dutch rock group that featured star guitarist Jan Akkerman and vocalist Kaz Lux within their ranks. The band's debut album featured such incredible work as Dark Rose, Summertime, Scarborough Fair and the epic 17 minute track Sea Of Delight. Inspired by British acts of the day, Brainbox were equal to the talent of groups such as Taste and Jethro Tull and their debut album secured a world wide release by EMI in 1969. Soon after the album appeared Jan Akkerman departed to join Focus, but Brianbox continued to record a host of classic singles and a second LP with drummer Pierre Van Der Linden also joining Focus…

Brainbox is usually remembered as Dutch heavy progressive band with guitarist Jan Akkerman and drummer Pierre van der Linden - just before they have founded fame in Focus. Many fans still even remember the vocalist Kaz Lux, but nobody ever mentions ‘Parts’ - an official 2nd album recorded by completely revamped line-up (with the exception of drummer Frank Smit) and released by EMI Harvest in 1972. This unjustly forgotten, but great record (now on CD for the first time!) was completely ignored at the time of release, which surely was a big mistake! LP featured very eclectic, mostly progressive and sometimes truly experimental tracks characterized by changing moods and clever arrangements - in many ways similar in style to Wishbone Ash, Livin’ Blues, Fleetwood Mac and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

In 1958 the school band The Jokers is formed in Haarlem. Members are Hans Alta (bass), Rein van den Broek (trumpet), Tim Griek (drums, he was the producer for the first Brainbox album, he died in a car crash in 1988) and Huib van Kampen (guitar/saxophone). The play covers of well known songs. In 1965 the name is changed to Incrowd. In 1967, the name has already changed to Ekseption because there is another Dutch band with the name Incrow…

From the guitarist of the Dutch rock group Brainbox and the progressive rock group Focus, this is a very fine instrumental rock/jazz/fusion album! The first tune is an upbeat, though not too rowdy electric guitar piece with a vague blues influence, fairly simple though pleasing rhythm with Jan doing an impressive electric lead. Next, is a mellow, beautiful, haunting acoustic prog rock piece featuring piano and Jan doing a lead that never really takes center stage. This is one of the finest tunes on the album. The third tune starts with some sound effects, going into drums that set an offhand beat that draws you into what eventually becomes a tasty fusion tune with fine electric guitarwork from Jan! The next tune shows how well fusion and instrumental prog rock can fit so well together, if when not getting too rowdy. They save the rowdy tune for song number 5 on the album….pure fusion, with Jan's most impressive most rocking solo on the album…another album highlight! And the sixth and final tune is a melodic cross of jazz and rock….a bit mellow, but a fine way to end the album. Four additional tunes were added at the end of this disc. They were all live selections, nice tunes, and fine additions to the disc. Of all of Jan's solo albums that I've heard, this is a favorite. Over all, once you hear this disc, you WILL WANT to hear it again….and maybe again after that!
