Although Nektar achieved some American success during the mid-'70s, the band sees a significant portion of its discography released in the United States for the first time on The Dream Nebula. The material from Nektar's earliest albums are the highlights of the collection. On tracks like "Astronaut's Nightmare" and "Warp Oversight/The Dream Nebula," the band conjures up images of floating through outer space. Although Nektar's controls aren't set for the heart of the sun, the band is traveling in a harder-rocking parallel universe to Saucerful of Secrets-era Pink Floyd. Do You Believe In Magic" signaled a change in direction for the band.
In 2003, Moore departed the band and was replaced by new bassist Randy Dembo. The Dream Nebula: The Best of 1971-1975.

That was the only exploration and experience that I got with Nektar and I did enjoy the album. In fact, it was very difficult to find other Nektar albums in the seventies during that time, in my country. So when this compilation that comprises double CDs covering the best of Nektar in seventies I was so interested with the CD. In fact when I started spinning the CD, my initial reaction was that I enjoy the music. It flows beautifully with quite good melodies and tight arrangements.

Nektar biography NEKTAR is probably the most German-like of the Seventies British bands, a fame that owes a lot to the town in which this band was founded (Hamburg) and to their stylistic approach (Assimilated to Krautrock). NEKTAR was formed in 1969 by Allan FREEMAN (keyboards & vocals), Roye ALBRIGHTON (guitars & vocals), Derek MOORE (bass, Mellotron & vocals) and Ron HOWDEN (drums). Their earliest albums were hard rock that drew heavily from the space-rock and PINK FLOYD styles of the same period. The 70's gave them the occasion to issue some masterpieces, like for example. Fortunately there is a compilation album just called NEKTAR (1976) which has all the best bits of the albums and is highly recommended.
