Rare Bird were a progressive rock band that came together in the 1960s. They were formed in England, but had more success in other European countries than they did at home.

The band’s initial line up was as below, although there would be line up changes for the band by the time they came to work on their 3rd album, the first two members listed were a constant throughout the life time of the band.

* Steve Gould (vocals/saxophone/bass)
* Dave Kaffinetti (keyboards)

* Graham Field (organ)
* Mark Ashton (drums)

The band split up in the mid 1970s.

    Uno de los mejores grupos de rock progresivo que se puede escuchar. En mi opinión alcanzan su momento cumbre con el tercer ábum, "Epic Forest", en el que por vez primera hacen uso de la guitarra. Creo que gana muchísimo el grupo en este momento con el añadido del sonido de guitarra, aunque pierde un poco de la "oscuridad" creativa que caracteriza sus dos primeros trabajos. Se vuelven también más melódicos, pero con una calidad tan grande que obtienen obras maestras de composiciones no tan inspiradas ni improvisadas, más maduras a la vez que asequibles.

    I have just discovered this band. I am absolutely mezmorized by their brilliance and the fact that I haven't heard of them.

    Their album 'Rare Bird' is amazing. I love prog rock like that, along the lines of Warhorse and Armageddon.

    At first I thought there are 2 different vocalists singing the main verses of "Sympathy" :)
