Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the legendary underground act's third album including two bonus tracks. Formed in 1969, Skin Alley were part of the infamous Clearwater stable that included fellow acts such as Hawkwind, High Tide and Trees. Skin Alley's infectious fusion of Jazz and Rock was suited to the time and the band became a regular attraction on the underground festival and concert circuit. Signing to CBS Records in the autumn of 1969, the band recorded two albums for the label and underwent a change to their line-up before departing the label and appearing at the 1971 Glastonbury Fayre. Soon after, the band signed to Transatlantic Records and recorded Two Quid Deal at Rockfield Studios with producer Fritz Fryer. Esoteric.

Skin Alley - Jazz Crosstalk
Somewhere between the jazz shimmers of Colosseum, Skin Alley launched their ethereal 1970 debut "Tell Me"/"Better Be Blind". Skin Alley's self titled album produced by Pretty Thing Dick Taylor spewed out a gutsy conglomeration of abstract conversation namely the aural "All Alone" with sweaty workouts from the organic sax of Bob James and Juskiewicz' growling hammond. The exquisite vox on "Tell Me" feeds the ambient tones that Skin Alley could conjure out of the jazz skirmish. The entire strength of this group would amount to nothing if it were not for the astounding rhythms of drummer Giles `Alvin' Pope. The jazzy cross talking instrumental "Marsha" and 27 min "Concerto Grosso" (Take heed) froth in a pot similar to Miles Davis' Bitches Brew. Skin Alley most likely first came to prominence through one of the debut album tracks "Living In Sin" which was included on the 1970 budget CBS double compilation, Fill Your Head With Rock , cover had Jerry Goodman of The Flock in full viola attack. The group were closer to abstract jazz, highlighted by ex Helpless Bob James' outstanding flute/ sax and the perpetual bass of vocalist Thomas Crimble who would join Hawkwind that same year. Their follow up To Pagham And Beyond now received the talents of ex Grips / Atomic Rooster bassist Nick Graham fresh from Rooster's debut with Carl Palmer. The year 1970 also gave way to a further changes with ex Chessmen / Bronx Cheer drummer Tony Knight replacing Alvin Pope. Skin Alley pushed out a raunchy version of Graham Bond's "Walking In The Park" and the Crimble penned "Sweaty Betty", stunningly savaged by Graham's vox.

Way back in the 70s i used to own the LP of this, but for some reason never really got it. Always regretted parting with it though. Really loved the cover art, both front and back. So after having searched for some considerable time, like around 33 years i came across the CD copy on your site. Bugger this, thinks i , shall give this a shot. And am i one happy fella. Its brilliant !. Completely at a loss why i parted with it. Its a must for my collection. If your into Prog --- What the hell are you waiting for ? Great cover and greater music. Come back the 70s, all is forgiven.
