Hope that you can get yourself a copy and enjoy it.

Unlike other Spooky Tooth albums, most of which have a kind of 'raw' sound to them, "Witness" is well-crafted and much more 'polished'.

Anyone who heard this guy sings always comments on his impressive style.

For over two decades now, since CD's came onto the scene, like many, I have been gradually replacing my vinyl collection with CD's. All this time, I have been waiting for Island Records to issue Spooky Tooth's 1973 album "Witness" on CD. It never happened!

A number of other Spooky Tooth albums have been available on CD practically from the get-go, yet "Witness", which is, arguably, the best album ever recorded by the band, had oddly been ignored. Spooky Tooth fans have been screaming for the release of this classic on CD, but Island Records, who initally issued the album, turned a deaf ear to them. A few years back, a German company, Repertoire, finally issued "Witness" on CD, however, in their haste to get it out, they issued a badly-mastered, inferior version.

Well, I'm happy to say that on 08/16/2005, Repertoire FINALLY re-issued "Witness", this time expertly re-mastered!! I bit the bullet and, with my fingers crossed, shelled out another 30 bucks for this brand-new reissue. Am I ever glad I did, as THIS one sounds AWESOME! My compliments to Repertoire for finally getting it right! (Eat your heart out, ISLAND!!) The CD also includes a booklet insert containing an historical retrospective of the band and it's various members, complete liner notes, pictures, and comments from Lead vocalist Mike Harrison.

For those of you who have never beared witness to "Witness," even on vinyl, I will give you a little background on this spectacular album. The second Spooky Tooth album to feature Mick Jones (of 'Foreigner' fame) on guitar, his presence is very obvious, as this album has a bit of a 'Foreigner-type' feel to it. Though Foreigner's debut album was still 4 years away when "Witness" was originally released, there is a definite foreshadowing here.

If you're bothering to read this review then it's likely you already know that "Witness" is in fact a "five star" album, arguably the best work 70's prog-rockers Spooky Tooth ever did. You are also likely to have been obsessively searching for a CD reissue of this Holy Grail. Well, don't get too excited, yet. Because this album STILL hasn't been correctly "reissued". I'm sad to report that, despite my "inner voice" red-flagging me about the obviously homemade cover art, I had to part with my hard-earned cash and wait til I got home to confirm that, "Yup, it's a bootleg!" I'll admit that I couldn't detect any clicks, pops or skips, but there is an unmistakable harmonic distortion on high vocals and cymbal crashes that can only point to a vinyl source master. I think "Progressive Line" is really a guy named Rolf with a Cool Edit and a CD burner in his basement. Save your money, hang on to your vinyl copy for now and wait for the legit reissue.

I've been waiting for this to be released on CD for sooooo long... this is their 2nd album afer the 1st reunion (in the early 70s) & definitely one of their best. I'd rate it as a 5 star release just like their legendary Spooky Two album (although most people would argue that Your Broke My Jaw is the best from the reunion). I guess it might have a lot to do with the fact that it's my 1st Tooth album. I picked it up in a liquidation sale in Hong Kong (where most of their albums were not available). Anyway, I got hooked & bought all the other ones after I moved to Canada. I liked every single one of them... Why they never hit it big still puzzles me!!! So, if you're Tooth fan, your wait is over... If you're new to the band or just curious, Spooky Two or the Best Of is probably a better start... However, don't miss out on their last Reunion CD either - Cross Purpose (unlike most reunions CDs, this one is exceptionally GOOD!)...

The second album from the band after reforming minus two original members. Mick Jones replaced Luther Grosvenor who was leading Widowmaker, later to show up as Ariel Bender in Mott the Hoople. Mick Jones would take his experience from Spooky Tooth and form Foreignor. Chris Stewart came in on bass and fills in admirably for Greg Ridley who was thumping for Humble Pie. Gary Wright deserves special credit for this set as he wrote or co-wrote every track. All the songs are bluesy, soulful or progressive rock driven and not even close to the commercial "dream weaver" arrangements he would later pursue. Mike Harrison again belts out his classic vocals. Anyone who heard this guy sings always comments on his impressive style.

Mike Kellie is around again providing the steady drum beats. He is the "overlooked" constant for this band. Why is this a DJ's dream? Well anybody who sits behind the mike in a classic rock format station can pick this album up, play any song and I am sure he will get favorable responses from his listeners. All the songs are that good and classic.

One more thing about Gary Wright; he is either associated with Spooky Tooth or his Dream Weaver phase (love it or hate it) but let's not forget he also was involved with almost every George Harrison solo project. I think that is saying something.

This is one great album--every song is well written and the band is great with Mick Jones. I agree with the other reviewer--it would have been more popular if it was advertised more. Every song has a catch phrase and is never tiresome. Get this while you can--Spooky Tooth fans adhere my suggestion please!
