Along with Ragnarock and Sebastian Hardie, Dragon were one of the very best 70's melodic progressive bands from that region of the world. There is plenty to love if you like the UK bands Fantasy, Barclay James Harvest, and Ireland's Fruupp. There is lots of excellent melodic content, with very easy-on-the-ear vocals, excellent Hammond organ, and acoustic/electric guitar. Their material never gets super heavy or bombastic though, so I would tend to classify Dragon as proto-prog. While this, and their second album, "Scented Gardens For The Blind" are wholeheartedly recommended!
