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.
