Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the debut solo album by former Colosseum saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith. Recorded upon the demise of Colosseum, the sessions featured contributions by Jon Hiseman, Mark Clarke, Chris Farlowe and Dave Greenslade along with Graham Bond and Chris Spedding. A superb example of Jazz influenced Progressive Rock, the album appeared on Bronze Records in 1972 and is now hailed as a classic of the genre. This reissue features three live recordings as bonus tracks and two studio tracks by the band Manchild featuring Dick Heckstall-Smith, James Litherland, Dave Rose, Billy Smith and Theodore Thunder. Esoteric. 2009.

I purchased this album on vinyl when it was first released in '72 and am very happy it's out on CD. Dick Heckstall-Smith (1934-2004)was an incredible musician (tenor and soprano saxes, often at the same time) and he invited lots of fellow incredibles to create this-his first solo album after the breakup of his former group Colosseum, a six piece jazz rock ensemble. Several former bandmates do indeed appear on this reording: drummer Jon Hiseman, bassist/vocalist Mark Clarke, keyboardist Dave Greenslade, and vocalist Chris Farlowe. As well as the unique Paul Williams (Tempest, IOU) and guitarist Chris Spedding. Adding to this notable entourage is the lyricist Peter Brown. The 6 tracks of the original Lp are all here, including "Moses In The Bullrushes" featuring the late Graham Bond on vocals and organ. The piece d' resistance is "The Pirates Dream"-an 11 minute tour de force which was originally a Colsseum number. It's worth the price of the Cd alone as far as I'm concerned. Of the 5 bonus tracks there's little to get excited over unless you're a fan of James Litherland, who plays some awesome guitar on the live material. "No Amount Of Loving You" is a good cut; sounds alot like Colosseum's "I Can't Live Without You" from their first Lp. The last two cuts are from unreleased Manchild recordings and they should've stayed that way. I always found Dick Heckstall Smith to be enigmatic: how could a jazz musician born in the 30s get involved with such "heavy" rock musicians like Clem Clemson and Jack Bruce? Thank God he did.

This really is a masterpiece from one of the most talented musicians ever to walk the Earth. Sadly, Dick passed away at the end of last year, but he left us with so many beautiful moments to savor, many of them captured on this stunning album.

While I was aware of him from his work with John Mayall, it was his exquisite sax work with John Hiseman's Colosseum that really got me on board as a lifelong DHS fan. The ghost of Colosseum permeates this solo album in a very positive way, partly due to the evocative soloing by Dick, which often harkens back to his many classic Colosseum solos (Valentyne Suite being a breathtaking showcase for his and John's genius).

John Hiseman did an excellent job in the Producer's chair, vacating it to play on the album's mind-blowing epic The Pirate's Dream, originally a DHS/Dave Clempson song from Colosseum days, which John helped the boys develop into the work of genius it became, as you will see here. One of the many wonderful things about this album is the inclusion of a devastating 'live' version of Pirate's Dream as one of three Bonus Tracks and two previously unreleased Manchild recordings.

If you are a Colosseum fan, this is an essential purchase, or if you just love good music, likewise.

Did I mention that it was absolutely stunning?

DHS should've done more of the same. After Colosseum, he did this a with a few ex-members plus some incredible contributions from session guys. Everything from the original album is here, including "Pirate's Dream", the definitive jazz/rock/prog masterpiece and an example of peerless ensemble playing. Everyone on this plays out of their skin: DHS with his usual double horn examples of educating, not posturing; jon hiseman on frenetic drums; mark clarke on melodious but utterly functional bass and excellent vocals; chris farlowe on just "Pirate's Dream" is again astonishing; great contributions from Chris Spedding, Paul Williams and Caleb Quaye. A great legacy from a great Briton, DHS deserves to be remembered by all who have ears...

Although I love DHS and his work with Collosseum and later free jazz ,this was a bit too arty for me, similar to the Jack Bruce solo albums. Great musicians , but too fancy for my taste. Would have preferred a more jazz or blues sound.
