Editorial Reviews

Digitally re-mastered edition of this 1978 album from the eclectic rockers. This wonderful band first came to attention with a clutch of albums recorded for Vertigo Records in the early 1970's. By 1974, they had become the vision of flautist Jon Field and guitarist Tony Duhig and had signed to Island Records. Way of the Sun was their final album for the label, arguably one of their finest, and remains an outstanding listening experience. Nine tracks. Esoteric.


1. Sun Ra
2. Sun Child
3. Moontears
4. Heaven Stone
5. Way of the Sun
6. River Song
7. Carnival
8. Death of the Sun
9. Death of Ra

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When I began to collect Jade Warrior's "Island era" albums on vinyl in the seventies I commenced with "Waves" [1975], & for a while I thought that Tony Duhig & Jon Field had reached some peak of musical achievement. I was quite mistaken. My next purchase [out of sequence with the chronology of the four albums] was "Way of the Sun" [1978]. I gave up trying to define or predict anything about Jade Warrior's music ever again.
Whatever this album's title & cover art suggest is only a thin representation of the musical depth within. The music is built around ethnic Central American themes with segments that can sound majestic & sometimes almost orchestral, while much of it is exotic, haunting, & mystical.
I have always loved the sound of flute, & this album is a flute lover's delight. Once again Jon Field's flutes evoke celestial beauties & harmonies in partnership with Tony Duhig's guitars, both electric & acoustic. But Tony's electric guitar playing on parts of this album is nothing short of mesmerizing, especially on the final track.
The first track "Sun Ra" creates a vivid impression of a sunrise. Then "Sun Child" is centered around a delightful flute tune, with picollos also, & the enchanting sounds of harp played by a guest musician. "Moon Tears" is a sweetly earthy tune played with both wooden flute & conventional flutes as well as guitars, & a myriad of small bells & chimes as it drifts into "Heaven Stone", a beautiful flute piece with cool jazz-like accompaniment largely from acoustic guitars. "Way of the Sun" ventures into a more familiar Latin American influence with Tony Duhig's electric guitars multi-tracked. Then "River Song" has multi-tracked flutes producing joyful trills & flutters.

Way of the Sun sounds like it was influenced by both Santana and Camel- the incredible guitar playing of the former, and the instantly jaw-droppingly beautiful instrumental playing of the latter.

Why is it that whenever I listen to any rock album from the 70's, I find that at least 80% of the music is good? Bands back then knew how to put a song together.

Make sure when you listen to this Jade Warrior album you have the lights off in your room and you're feeling warm, because the music contains a friendly and comfortable atmosphere that's sure to please fans of beautiful instrumental playing and especially Camel fans.

We really need for the 70's to make a comeback with young people today. Maybe someone 14 years old will find out about Jade Warrior, and recommend the music to their friends, and that will start a trend that will carry all through North America and Europe.

"Way of the Sun" is a more upbeat album than their previous 3 releases, blending Eastern sounds with soft fusion and progressive. Soft flute passages mix with acoustic guitars and lush percussive waves, similar at times to Mike Oldfield and even Gandalf.

I love Jade Warrior's spacey mood music and this album is one of my favorites. From the first song to the last it paints a great cohesive picture that kind of reminds me of Egypt and/or South America. It demands serious, not casual listening however. You can't be walking around or washing the dishes and appreciate this album(or other Jade Warrior albums). The use of many different instruments sound great through my Altecs and peak with "The Death of Ra". The Death of Ra is a great emotional funeral songs with great guitar work in the mold of Santana. I recommend this album if you like percussive, spacey instrumental type music. It ain't Chuck Berry!
