Oregon: Out Of The Woods

Paul Morley, New Musical Express, 18 November 1978

IT'S GOOD to hear that Oregon's music remains pure and fresh despite the possible clumsy patronage of a large label. Using a number of combinations of apparently mismatched instruments, this democratic quartet make a deliberate music that is always evocative and unusual. Each member plays well in the tradition of their instruments without being academic, simply performing individually and progressively.
