4.0 out of 5 stars All glory to shri Krsna February 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
What a welcome release this has been. Never previously released on CD, this reissue comes sounding a whole lot better than the album ever did but without any additional tracks.

This is the last of the "holy trinity" of Qunitessence albums, the remaining two being somewhat lower down the list of must have albums.

Unlike the self titled Quintessence this album marks somewhat of a change in direction by the band whilst at the same time remaining true to form. Whereas the second album was a fusion of studio and live performances, these are primarily studio recordings but with a live feel. During the time that this album was made Quintessence continued their touring and left no-one in any doubt over the power and reach of the band live. While most of the songs led to the improvised playing which had some dancers almost in ecstasy the studio recordings eschewed that aspect and as a result are considerably diminished in my view as a result. The reputation of Quintessence as a powerful live act was maintained by this album although, unlike their west coast cousins without religion the Grateful Dead, they were able to produce a decent album bouyed by the live act. The strains are beginning to emerge within the band characterised by a poorer quality of the songwriting and a more self-indulgent approach as typified by the mere six relatively lengthy tracks.

The first of these, Dive Deep treads no new ground, preferring the obvious safety of the blistering guitar solo which bears much similarity to St. Pancras on the second album but without the range. On Dance for the one, Raja Ram's flute again goes over the same ground as on the earlier albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quintessence at their best August 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This was the most polished of the first three Quintessence albums. The first time they used the studio to advantage rather than as a means of capturing their live essence. If this was, as other reviewers indicate, a swan song-it was a good one to end on. It builds well on the first two albums, although I found the second album bland, treading water. Dive Deep is a master class of Quintessence music at its best. Highlighted by Shiva's vocals, Raja Ram's flute, Allan's exceptional under-stated guitar, Shambu Baba's deeply satisfying bass. There is so much going on, interconnections of sound that sit well with the lyrics. Hippy eastern mythology it may be but as story telling rather than cant. Haunting, beautiful, mystical music that is a joy and inspiration to listen to forty years after it was released. It remains a classic album of this era and stands regular playing. Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quintessence - 'Deep Dive' (Repertoire) April 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Originally released in 1970 in it's full Middle Eastern progressive glory, as this was another one of Quintessence's early works. Less song oriented with longer instrumental passages than their other lp's like 'In Blissful Company', 'Self' and 'Indweller' but still a very good effort overall, I thought. Tracks I was most impressed with were the eleven-minute dream-like "Dance For The One", the uplifting "Epitaph For Tomorrow" and the folk-trance like "Sri Ram Chant" that manages to (sort of) take the listener away. Definitely a should-have. Nice album cover, don't you think?
