Four Moments is the debut studio album by the Australian symphonic rock band Sebastian Hardie. It was their most commercially successful release. All tracks were written by lead vocalist / lead guitarist Mario Millo either on his own or with fellow band members Toivo Pilt, Alex Plavsic and Peter Plavsic. The distinctive logo, which would feature on future Sebastian Hardie releases, was designed by Larraine Hall. The album was produced by former band member Jon English.

Wikipedia – Sebastian Hardie:
Sebastian Hardie was Australia’s first symphonic rock band, formed in 1967. An early member was Jon English (vocals, rhythm guitar). A later member, Mario Millo (lead guitar, mandolin, vocals) became a multi-award winner for his television and movie music.
Sebastian Hardie’s other early members included Graham Ford (lead guitar), Peter Plavsic (bass guitar) and his brother Alex Plavsic (drums). After English and Ford left, the Plavsic brothers were joined by Millo and Toivo Pilt (keyboards). With their addition, Sebastian Hardie developed extended progressive rock tracks to become a symphonic rock group before they released their definitive album Four Moments. They followed with a second album Windchase in 1976, but it had less chart success. Millo and Pilt formed the band Windchase and released a heavier jazz-fusion album in 1977 called Symphinity.
