An eponymous LP of this very fine, but completely ignored British band was released in non-attractive, but expensive (gatefold & textured) cover in November 1971 by DJM Records - label familiar with the early Elton John titles, but absolutely not with the underground music. This professionally produced album contained an eclectic mix of styles (inc. two ballads and classic ‘Lucille’ clone in heavy blues rock style), but most of the time it was beautifully-arranged, progressive sounds similar to early Genesis, Yes, Procol Harum & Beggars Opera (like lengthy and simply stunning compositions like ‘Welcome To The Soldier’, ‘Classical Gas’ and ‘Guillotine’) with excellent & quite heavy guitar parts, inventive keyboard work & complex vocal harmonies.

Deep Feeling was a short-lived obscure British band whose only album, originally released on the DJM label in 1971, has been tragically overlooked among prog fans and collectors. This band has no relation to the UK 60s band of the same name that featured future members of Traffic, Spooky Tooth, and Family. This obscure band, comprised of seasoned studio musicians, recorded just one album, and it is a minor masterpiece. All but one of its 6 tracks exceeding 5 minutes in length, stylistically falls somewhere between UK proto-prog groups (Cressida, Beggars Opera, Spring) and the excellent British bands of the first echelon (early Crimson, Marsupilami, Rare Bird). In fact, several tracks are just as complex as The Court Of The Crimson King or Rare Bird's suite Flight. The album opens with the great Welcome For A Soldier, a complex piece with several tempo shifts and some excellent guitar/keyboard interplay in the middle. The vocal melody is very dreamy and beautiful, evoking parallels with PFM's River Of Life, but the instrumental parts are far more energetic, full of unexpected rhythmic changes and dazzling solos. Next comes the short acoustic Old People's Home, sounding very British, drawing some similarities to the works of Greatest Show On Earth or the calm moments of Gravy Train. Classical Gas, a chart hit for Mason Williams here in the US, is another story - the only entirely instrumental track on the album and without a doubt one of the album’s highlights. This version is simply irresistible, with beautiful guitar passages (a-la Cressida's John Culley) and excellent harpsichord backing. In contrast, Guillotine sounds much heavier, it's obviously not hard-rock, but an accomplished full-blown early heavy progressive piece in the vein of Rare Bird's Hammerhead. The two closing tracks may not seem on par with the rest of the album, but individually they work brilliantly. First up is the fine guitar-driven Country Heir, which could have been recorded by The Kinks, 1967-1968 period; nearly 6 minutes in length and never gets boring. The album’s closer, a homage to the British rock scene of the 1960-1970s, is a powerful rendition of the rock'n'roll classic Lucille, done with scorched guitar leads and the obligatory drum-solo in the middle. It’s a shame such a great early progressive rock work has remained so little known, but it seems DJM did little to promote it and it only had a small original pressing before being deleted. If you dig the early years of progressive rock with excellent and heavy guitar parts, inventive keyboard work, and complex vocal harmonies (some recalling what Queen would later make their trademark) this album is worth your further investigation.
