    Greenslade ~ 1972 ~ Greensladegenre: prog
    country: uk
    audio: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 40'25" size: 270 mb

    ProgressiveRock : 
    Greenslade was built on the talents of its namesake, keyboardist Dave Greenslade, and bassist Tony Reeves, both of whom had previously been together in Colosseum. They rounded out the line up with ex-Crimson and Kingdom Come drummer Andrew McCulloch, and quite uniquely, a second keyboardist. Doubling on vocals, Dave Lawson’s previous work included five years for the Royal Air Force band! The debut album from Greenslade is nothing short of classic. Don’t let the Roger Dean cover fool you, there is no cosmic slop inside, just hard driving progressive rock-n-roll. The melancholic "Feathered Friends" opens the album, revealing a rich sonic texture straight from the analog era. The classically inspired "An English Western" follows, but with an uncluttered arrangement, their dual keyboard approach never gets too busy and always remains effective.
    "Drowning Man" goes liturgical, while "Temple Song" offers something gentler. The second side features the unabashed Prog of "Mйlange" and "Sundance". Replete with a host of keyboards and time signature changes, it approaches Yes territory, but without the baggage. The albums’ sleeper is the Lawson-penned "What Are You Doing To Me". His vocal delivery is superb, while its pre-Kashmir Mellotron thunder predated Zeppelin by a few years. The album was well received and followed quickly by the sophomore effort Bedside Manners Are Extra. Guitarist Dave Clempson and violinist Graham Smith added to 1974’s Spyglass Guest, which reached the UK Top 40. Reeves left for Curved Air by the time 1975’s Time and Tide rolled around. Greenslade, however, disbanded the group before his 1976 solo album Cactus Choir. Although all highly original and appealing in their own right, none of their output would match the songwriting (or impact) of their debut.

    Gypsy ~ 1970 ~ Gypsygenre: psych
    country: us
    audio: lossless (ape, cue, log, scans)
    time: 1:06'42" size: 382 mb

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    This long-lived outfit evolved out of Minneapolis' Underbeats, who'd been wowing them in the Midwest since the early sixties. Given the prodigious output under their various monikers, latterly as American Gypsy and The James Walsh Gypsy Band, they must have enjoyed much success but have retained a relatively low profile in collectors circles since, apart from entries in Tom Tourville's ground-breaking 'Minnesota Rocked' discography. They may have relocated to California at some point, since their early LPs were recorded there. The first double album is full of originals, which are psychedelic in mood with West Coast jazz-rock influences and some Southern rock tinges. One of the second LP's highlights is Another Way, an Eastern influenced jam which sounds not unlike early Santana.
    The third album is more mainstream and not as good. It does consist entirely of originals, the better tracks being Facing Time, Young Gypsy, Antithesis and Money. Enrico Rosenbaum was the chief creative force behind Gypsy, and sadly later committed suicide. James Walsh led several reformations in later years, and now works in a recording studio in Minneapolis doing independent production projects. Bill Lordan went on to work with Sly and The Family Stone, and later had a long-lasting relationship with Robin Trower, touring and recording with Trower for many years. ~ (Max Waller / Vernon Joynson / Richard King / Bill Cafruny)

    Tapestry Of Delights : 
    These are two totally uncommercial "folk" albums by a Yorkshire act. That doesn't mean they use any traditional songs. On Sorcerers, all tracks are composed and sung by Noy, with inventive but not always coherent accompaniment on wind instruments by Bairstow. Though some of the material is a bit bland, this album has its share of completely uncommon, yet strangely innocent melodies, put forward in a strongly self-willed way. There are no less than 18 tracks on this album. Check out the strangely twisted Dominique on side two.
    The second album continues in the same vein, yet sounds completely different. Their sound augmented with a useful drummer, they now presented three tracks instead of 18, one of them a side long. Instead of concise songs, we get long suited, still folky efforts but heavily spiced with dissonance and wild improvisations. None of the restraint is left, though few arrangements are very well executed. In spite of some overlong solos, this is highly interesting music made by minds that seem to be on the verge of disintegrating. Not for everyone's tastes, probably, but recommended nonetheless. ~ (Marcel Koopman)
