first reviews, I highlighted an interesting group I discovered watching Britain's Got Talent, eScala. This group played classical and instrumental music with a twist. Their performance included electric strings. Something I was unfamiliar with at the time. I quickly fell in love with the group, but they were only contestants on the reality show and had no album of their own. A friend pointed out to me they were very similar to a group named Bond. At the time, I was unfamiliar with them as well. I had a listen and was immediately hooked. Months later, eScala came out with their own CD (though not winning the talent show) and I made sure to purchase it. Now I own all available music from both groups.
In honour of my first music review on this blog, I've decided to pit these two groups together and let them battle it out in my second 'Battle of the Band' feature. The song I've selected is Kashmir. Those of you familiar with Led Zeppelin will undoubtedly recognize the song. In fact, I'm quite sure most of you unfamiliar with any Led Zeppelin songs, will still recognize this catchy tune. I hope you enjoy it.
eScala, now know as Escala, is first to do battle.
Now it's time for a little Bond.
So what did you think? I hope you enjoyed at least one of the versions above.
Now comes your job. It's time to vote on your favourite. Which group did you think performed the song the best? Let me know in the comments. It would be nice to know why you feel the way you do. Voting ends on the 8th, when I'll cast my own vote and announce the winner in a separate posting.
Did you enjoy the Battle of the Bands feature? Come back on the 15th when I'll have a new battle. Most likely, I'll return to a more popular song as I know instrumental is not for everyone. I thank everyone who indulged my fancy this week.
Don't forget! Please check out the rest of my friends who have "banded" together to produce more band battles. Follow the links below to enjoy more "Battle of the Bands".
