NEKTAR Reveal All-Star Covers Album

Nektar are poised to release a covers album featuring guest appearances from a long list of prog royalty.

A Spoonful Of Time includes contributions from Geoff Downes, Mark Kelly, Michael Pinnella, Rick Wakeman, Steve Howe and Billy Sheehan, among many others. See below for the full list of tracks and guests.

The album was mixed by Billy Sherwood, who also appears. He says: “I really enjoyed working with Nektar and it was an honour playing bass too.

“Roye Albrighton is very creative and inspiring to be around. Ron Howden and Klaus Henatsch are great to work with too. It felt like working with friends, and I look forward to playing gigs with them in the future.”

Albrighton adds: “It was good working with Billy on this covers album and our new studio album Time Machine. Like me, he wants the absolute best for the music.”

A Spoonful Of Time is available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon.
