Raw Material - Miracle Worker, taken off " Time is Rare", their second and final album, released in 1971 on the Neon label, which, as you by now no doubt know, makes it quite collectible! Raw Material were a British progressive rock quintet, formed in London in the late sixties by sax player Mike Fletcher ( ex-Steam), Colin Catt ( vocals/keyboards), Dave Green (later to join Deep Feeling - on guitar), Phil Gunn on bass and guitar, and Paul Young on drums. They released their first self-titled album, on Evolution Records in 1970. This album is equally as rare and collectible as their second album, and it contained their best known track, "Time and Illusion". All in all a good album, it was nonetheless overshadowed by the more sophisticated "Time is Rare" album, complete with its powerful progressive feel and mellow acoustic guitar and flute pieces, reminiscent of early Pink Floyd. A few of the band members went on to join Shoot in 1973.
