Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered two CD release containing a pair of albums from the Prog Rock band, originally released in 1974 and 1975. Greenslade were something of a supergroup when they formed in 1972. Dave Greenslade (son of Arthur Greenslade, noted arranger for Scott Walker, Dusty Springfield and many more) had been the keyboard player in Jazz Rock outfits Colosseum and If. Bass player Tony Reeves also came from the ranks of Colosseum, while drummer Andy McCulloch had been in the 'Lizard' line-up of King Crimson. Vocalist/second keyboard player Dave Lawson had been in Episode Six and The Alan Bown Set and the unique `two keyboards/no guitar lineup' gave them a signature sound, which was wrapped up in Roger Dean artwork. Edsel.

Like many longhaired spotty-teenagers in the early to mid 70's, I was completely drawn in by PROG ROCK and its mind-expanding themes. I'd be sat there on a Saturday morning (before Alan Freeman's Rock Show on Radio 1) with my Garrard SP25 turntable, Dustbuster and Emitex Cleaning Cloth all on the go - whilst I devoured the graphically drawn lyrics on Genesis and Yes albums. It wasn't long before my sensitive addiction spread to Uriah Heep, Gentle Giant and Badger - in fact anything with a Roger Dean album cover on it. It was therefore a natural progression to stumble on Dave Greenslade's keyboard vehicle - GREENSLADE. I thought the first two albums "Greenslade" and "Bedside Manners Are Extra" (both 1973 on Warner Brothers) had good moments, but their 3rd LP "Spyglass Guest" saw a level of sophistication that was undeniably better - and in places - even rather beautiful. Which is where this timely reissue comes in...

Released May 2011 in the UK, Rhino/Edsel EDSD 2098 contains Greenslade's 3rd and 4th studio albums on two CDs:
Disc 1 is "Spyglass Guest" - originally released August 1974 in the UK on Warner Brothers K 56055 (38:49 minutes)
Disc 2 is "Time And Tide" - originally released April 1975 in the UK on Warner Brothers K 56126 (32:33 minutes)

The 20-page booklet is much better than I thought it would be - all the original album artwork is here including the lyrics and inner gatefold pictures; there's a knowledgeable history on the band and the albums by ALAN ROBINSON and best news of all is the hugely upgraded sound. PHIL KINRADE has done the remastering at Alchemy Studios in London and a superlative job it is too - far better than the dull Eighties CDs I've had for years just to have the music.

these are the last two great albums by the legendary greenslade, after this dave went onto other adventures but these 2 records both stand the test of time very well and sound as fresh as they did 36/37 years ago, as with the first two great remastering and great booklet to accomany these two classic albums.........

In a perfect packaging, two gifts to remind how good it was at that time and stills sounds good. A rare gem.

The guy that commited this mastering is probably deaf, or maYbe the original tapes are in real bad conditions. So a good option would be to use original vinyls and restore. Keyboards, flute voice, all distorted! My gosh! Terrible sound!
