    Tapestry of Delights:
    Formed in 1969, High Tide were part of the wave of 'progressive underground' bands which grew up in Britain in the late sixties. Tony Hill had earlier played with The Misunderstood. Their albums, which were for the most part completely uncommercial, were characterised by elaborate, sometimes over-sophisticated guitar work. The band were more popular on the Continent than in Britain. The strongest tracks on the first album are arguably Walking Down Their Outlook and Pushed, But Not Forgotten, which has a beautiful, mellowed vocal intro. Futilist's Lament was also melodic whereas Missing Out and Nowhere were high energy 'wall of sound' instrumentals with a mesh of violin and guitar. Their second album was of a similar mould and comprised just three tracks; the 14 minute Saneonymous which accounts for the whole of side 2, the 8 minute Blankman Cries Again and The Joke, which lasts for over 9 minutes. All three are extended instrumental compositions with occasional vocal interludes. Despite their undoubted ability as musicians, High Tide's music lacked sufficient interest to attain wide recognition.

     

    As High Tide's albums had not sold well when originally issued, they had become quite difficult to obtain prior to their reissue.
    Simon House later played with Hawkwind and David Bowie. He also played with members of The Third Ear Band on the soundtrack to Roman Polanski's 'Macbeth'. Peter Pavli was later involved with House in several Hawkwind offshoot projects.
    Tony Hill also recorded a solo CD (on World Wide Records) and Maggie Bell released a single of the "Hazell" theme tune on Swan Song records in 1978.
