Trace was brainchild Of Rick Van Der Linden, after almost ten years in Ekseption and excisted from 1974-1977. Trace was a symphonic heavy pop group that made three albums full of classically inspired original material. With drummers Pierre van der Linden (Brainbox, Focus) and Ian Mosley (Marillion, Steve Hackett Band, Gordon Giltrap) and bassist Jaap van Eik (Cuby & The Blizzards, Solution, Panda, Vitesse), the keyboard maestro developed himself as a composer and performer on the album Trace. Now for the first time properly remastered (24 bit) from the original master tapes and released on CD. In addition the album contains 17 bonus tracks, featuring outtakes, demos and live material. Trace has been expanded to a double CD, featuring over 100 minutes of extra tracks. The CD comes in beautifully designed gatefold sleeves featuring rare photos and exclusive new interviews with Jaap van Eik, Ian Mosley, engineer Jan Schuurman and arranger Job Maarse. Exclusively restored dynamic 24 bit remastering from the original master tapes. Deluxe digipak gatefold sleeve. 20 page booklet including rare archival photos & memorabilia. Liner Notes by Wouter Bessels (Progwereld).
