Overlooking the unfortunate spelling of their name (which presumably carries different and better connotations in Poland than it does here in the U.S.), this proto-prog spectacular from the nascent Polish underground scene sounds remarkably advanced for something emerging from these temporal coordinates. This crew were evidently steeped in both Brian Auger & Trinity and Vanilla Fudge, the first of which I can attest to, the latter of which seems mostly evident in the lashings of organ that suffuse these tracks, though Klan lack the dumbo DNA at the core of Vanilla Fudge's aesthetic, replacing it with a specifically East Euro tack from that era that's also audible in Yugoslavian proto-prog artifacts by the likes of Korni Grupa and Time; a sort of rustic and gruff proto-prog surface under which exists a goodly bit of musical nuance and sophistication.
