Okay, so when they changed their name to just The Cult, they pretty much remade this album as "Dreamtime" and changed some of the titles by extending them. To me, while "Dreamtime" is a great album, this is the superior incarnation. Ghost Dance is just a great, eerie, western-sounding rock song that makes me wanna dance with unseen spirits. "A Flower in the Desert," "Horse Nation," "Butterflies," and "Rider in the Sky (Too Young)," (I'm not sure since I don't have "Dreamtime" anymore, but I think is the earlier version of "Rider in the Snow"), are the best songs on the album, as well as "Gods Zoo" and "Brothers Grimm." This is a great album that is filled with danceable rock with a ghostly twist that is enjoyable and frightening at the same time. No wonder they are classified as goth rock these days.

If you like old Cult/Southern Death Cult or early gothic rock, this CD is a good one. It is not quite refined, but that is what makes it enjoyable. I have been a Cult fan since the release of Electric and this one takes you back to raw Ian vocals in the days before Ian/Billy/et.al. released "Dreamtime" in the UK as The Cult. I believe that "God's Zoo" is what got the ball rolling for The Cult and if you haven't heard it...have a listen. I just wish that The Cult would have integrated more of their early sounds into their more recent releases. Highly recommended for true Cult fans!!

"Ghost Dance" collects the EP of the same name by the Death Cult-- the band that would eventually become the Cult, along with the followup single -- "Gods Zoo", and four performances from a BBC radio show. Singer Ian Astbury, having grown disinterested in the music of the Southern Death CUlt, formed the band with guitarist Billy Duffy (then part of a group called Theatre of Hate) and recruited guitarist-turned-bassist Jamie Stewart and drummer Ray Mondo. It was this quartet that recorded the "Ghost Dance" EP, with Mondo being replaced by Nigel Preston for the rest of the material on here. What separates this band from Astbury's previous project is the presence of Billy Duffy-- Astbury's presence and charisma is offset by an instrumentalist able to hold his own in the face of such a strong personality-- in Southern Death Cult, the band felt lopsided, but here there's more balance, and while the name is different (the album is credited to Death Cult), make no mistake: this is the early Cult material.

The early EP is a superb progression over the previous material-- while still seeped in the notions of gothic, Duffy's muscular presence lends the music to a more purposeful stance, and Astbury's confident swagger gave the band a great edge-- an explosive "Horse Nation" is the highlight here, powerful and energetic and like the rest of the material, propelled by Mondo's tribal drumming patterns that were so prevelent in post-punk at the time. "Gods Zoo", however, shows a real improvement-- aggressive, angular and explosive, it brines over from its straight rock beat and driving guitar lines, with Astbury over the top (in more ways then one). A pity the b-side couldn't perform better, the b-side retake of "Gods Zoo" suffers from bizarre backing vocals.

Most people familiar with late 80's hits like "Love Removal Machine" and "Fire Woman" might be surprised to hear about The Cult's early roots as a Goth rock band (or "Positive Punk", as it was originally called). But the fact remains that by the time the band was first formed, its founding members Billy Duffy and Ian Astbury were already well versed and battle hardened post-punk warriors, with stints in Theatre of Hate and Southern Death Cult under their respective belts.

It was from the ashes of this latter outfit that a new band was born: indeed, after sharing the stage on several occasions, Ian (then using his mother's maiden name, Lindsay) had been impressed by Billy's playing and that, coupled with his growing disillusion with SDC's path, convinced him to jump ship and start anew. They discovered that they shared a powerful chemistry, with Ian finally finding in Billy's ferocious yet innovative playing the perfect foil for his talents, something that he had lacked while in SDC. Very soon they were coming up with the first songs and they wasted no time in recruiting color drummer Ray Mondo and former guitar player Jamie Stewart (both from the band Ritual) to play bass. In order to capitalize on the groundwork done by Ian's previous band, they adopted the Death Cult moniker and they entered the studio to record 4 tracks that were released as the "Death Cult EP".

These tracks form the backbone of this release, now expanded and renamed "Ghost Dance", and they include "Brothers Grimm", "Horse Nation", "Christians" and the title track.
