First of all may I thank Barry "Fish" Melton for his personal insights and his willingness to share them in preparing for this review. The interpretation is all my own.

I saw John Cipollina once, playing with Man at Newcastle City Hall in the 1970's. Many years later I asked Deke Leonard what it was like playing with John. His face lit up and said that it was awesome. I have long been an admirer and so by it's very nature this review is somewhat biased.

This year fans will see the DVD version of an earlier VHS tape, Electric Gunslinger, now alas out of print, which will include clips of many of the bands that John played with and hopefully Raven will be part of that footage.

Originally released as a transfer to CD of some tapes by a German label (and it showed) this is a cleaned up, much improved expanded version which will be gratefully received by John's legions of devoted fans. The extensive notes of the story of Raven and their trials and tribulations so lucidly and cogently by Mike Somavilla set the scene before listening to the music itself.

I was tempted to award this album five stars at first but feel that the CD does not really do justice to the music contained therein. Given the sources the mere fact that we have the album this good at all is extremely commendable but I feel that the album does not fully reflect the performances and thus the four stars.

Given the origins of the band from the notes it should come as no surprise to find songs which reappeared under other guises later. Raven is described as John's version of a big band and the album is a testament to that idea. Throughout listeners will find John's trademark sound but within the context of playing in a band and allowing others to make their contribution.

Even though some of these songs were quite good rock and roll, and the vocalists were probably the best I ever heard John work with I just found the guitar work on this album to settled down for me. I would have preferred to hear more work with other excellent guitarist like on the "Man" albums. I believe that "Man" was passed the torch by Quicksilver, and even built a more solid foundation of work for two lead guitarists than the old QMS band did. If you are a JC fan make sure you have "Man's" "Maximum Darkness" first before you buy this one.

Raven was one of those bands that had a killer combination of musicians contributing to it's sound. John Cipollina, my good friend and Qicksilver Messenger Service guitarist, along with Greg Douglass and Nicky Hopkins together made Raven one of the more interesting of the bands John formed over his all-too-short time on this earth.

Get any Quicksilver and any recording with John and Nick Gravenites. Raven is not what you really want to hear when you remember John.
