Melbourne Zoo was an underground prog/jazz-fusion outfit from Melbourne, Australia that existed from 1974 to 1977. After missing their deal with Mushroom Records in 1978 these tapes have been buried and unheard for 36 years! Total wacko shit with amazing musicianship. For fans of Mahavishnu Orchestra, Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Weather Report and Gentle Giant.
