In 1972-1973 the Alquin star is rising. After a great concert at "Pinkpop" (The biggest open-air festival in Holland) Alquin was asked to perform for the program "The Old Grey Wistle" in London. With the great producer Derek Lawrence (a.o.Deep Purple) "mountain Queen" was recorded. A very good Cd that made Alquin go touring in Europe. They were supporting act of "Golden Earring" and in France with "The Who". The mountain Queen is what I believe the best Alquin made. It's the most prog/sympho Rock. Later they wanted to make shorter songs to reach a bigger ordience.
