Finch: Beyond expression
The foundation of Dutch progrock band FINCH was laid by bass player Peter Vink and drummer Beer Klaasse (both ex-Q65 and The KJOE). After some sessions and failed efforts to find a good singer, the new band switched to instrumental music with this line-up: Peter Vink, Beer Klaasse, the 19 year old "guitar virtuoso" Joop van Nimwegen and keyboard player Paul Vink.

The EMI sub-label Negram was willing to invest in the new progrock band, in ’75 this resulted in the debut-album "Glory of the Inner Force". The single "Colossus" (’75) wasn’t successful but it’s now a hugh collector’s item.

In ’76 the second album "Beyond Expression" was released. It was acclaimed as Album of the week by radio and tv broadcasting company Veronica and known music magazines were very positive. The future looked bright for FINCH: Sold out concerts, worldwide sales and in Japan FINCH became almost as popular as FOCUS and EARTH & FIRE!

This second album sound more original, inventive and dynamic than the debut.

Tracks: A Passion condensed
