Editorial Reviews

(LP + CD set) London art rock band that rose from the ashes of mid-sixties mod band Lloyd Alexander Real Estate. Adding sax, acoustic guitar and woodwinds to the mix, Audience soon became very popular on the club circuit, landing a residency at Ronnie Scott's and a record deal with Polydor. Their 1969 self-titled debut was a solid effort, but nonetheless was soon deleted, making original copies of this LP highly collectible. Featuring new 'positive image' cover photo plus 3 bonus tracks, including the theme from their soundtrack to the 1970 skinhead classic Bronco Bullfrog. 180 gram LP with bonus CD of the album and 3 extra tracks.

Format:Audio CD
1969 was a great year, a damn year to rock music...All that stuff of tragic Altamont concert and the ending of the idealistic flower-power movement, bla-bla-bla...Well, all this turned music a lot heavier, harder, cynic and complex, resulting in the advent of progressive-fusion scene, the synthesis of all underground music of the era... Audience, a british combo with a fantastic singer and a prime-division musicians made in that year a truly classic, now so underrated!! Why ignoring, for instance, one of the most beautiful saxophone-in-rock like the one in the first cut of the album, "Banquet" or the tenderness of "Poet" and "Pleasant Convalescence" (this one distinctively crafted), the exciting rolling-drums of "Man on Box", the bittersweet soul of "Leave It Unsaid" or the nervous raw-power of "Heaven Was An Island"? This album had been a rarity in cd, but now Luminous Records reissued it with 3 bonus-tracks, especially interesting is "Paper Round". It was a pitty that these guys never had the relevance they deserve!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful example of the best of UK 1969 records October 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
1969 was really the year that the UK album market came of age. It was finally possible to get an album issued without having a hit single, although those albums without a hit usually undersold.

This is Audience's first LP. It was issued on UK Polydor and not issued in the US. I ran across a copy of the UK import in 1970 in San Francisco and being a UK music fan, I was also taken by the totally cool black porus paper cover and bought it...without ever hearing of the band.

The entire is really terrific; Howard Werth great vocal and accoustic guitar; Keith Gemmell's sax (and all other sorts of reeds....some put through a wah-wah petal and sounding like an electric guitar!), Trevor Williams' great bass and Tony Connor's capable drumming.

I own the first CD issue of this...on UK RPM (RPM 148) and this issue is the replacement for the out-of-print RPM issue. Same 15 tracks. The only thing that was annoying about the RPM issue is that it began with a fade-up audience applause, which was NOT on the original LP, and "Banquet", the first song was transfered in such a way that it's a bit distorted...something the vinyl was not.

I assume that this issue is exactly the same as the RPM, even tho I have not heard it.

Anyone who likes the UK tuneful Art Rock/Progressive/Album-oriented types of groups will love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally on Vinyl January 10, 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
My vinyl audience collection is finally complete thanks to Lilith Records. Very good quality sound. Too bad it did not have liner notes. Saw them twice in Winnipeg 4 years ago, something that I thought would never be possible. It even came with a bonus CD of the first release by Audience, which I didn't need since I ordered it from an Amazon seller years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and fun September 24, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
I wasn't familiar with this album until recently, though I've been familiar with Audience's other albums since they came out in the early 70's. It's a lot like their other work except the songs are shorter and there's a bunch of them crammed in here. Obviously the band took the approach of expanding on their songs after this album. Nonetheless for anyone who may be familiar with Audience's other albums, this one offers up a very enjoyable listen.
