Recorded after "Air Cut" this has the same line-up and has the similar dynamics etc., with powerful yet subtle drumming and inventive bass playing. Some rated guitarist Kirby as a limited blues pentatonic style player but as on "Air Cut" his contribution here is a good concise sound, mixing with keyboards and bass.
It all flows very well as a sequence of songs, and the last "Paris by Night" has a sublime piano motif that's repeated over and over with additions here and there. Beautifully played by Eddie Jobson it's all just piano apart from some very low frequency synth rumblings ; turn up the volume and savour it. Really like this album and if you enjoyed the previous one, it's just as good.

Not bad for what it is. 12 Feb. 2007
By kireviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Released in 1990, this is taken from recordings sessions from 1974 for what was supposed to be Curved Air's fifth album. It is 34 minutes long and the sound quality is fair to good. The mix is sometimes flat and subdued. There are some minimal liner notes and credits.

This is not really a complete album and a little short at 34 minutes. Some of the music doesn't sound like it was really meant for a Curved Air release. There are a few tracks that are weak and not up to the best of Curved Air (like the opening two track medly). But it is still enjoyable and there are a couple of really good songs (on par with some of the best of Curved Air).

This is the same line up that was on Air Cut, Sonja Kristina (original vocalist), Mike Wedgewood (bassist who joined the band on the third album) and Eddy Jobson on keyboards and vioions and Kirby Gregory on guitar. It is not 100% clear, but I think Florian Pilkington-Miska is back as drummer after sitting out on Air Cut.

Air Cut and this CD were Eddy Jobson's first major recordings. He was only 18 at the time. It certainly shows. Sometimes his playing is weak and no match for Darryl Way or Francis Monkman, and other times he is very good. At this time, he seems to me more comfortable with keyboards than the violin. The last track is a piano driven instrumental that has some beautiful parts, but goes on way too long.

Kirby Gregory or Gregory Kirby or just plain Kirby, is an adequate guitarist, but more into blues. So, at times his guitar solos are don't fit in and are not that innovative, again, no match for Francis Monkman. He does have a nice little blues instrumental. It starts our great, but then goes nowhere. It makes me wonder if it was the music for a vocal track that never got completed.

So, is this worth buying? If you are a Curved Air nut, you will probably get it no matter what I say. If you generally like the group, it is probably worth getting if you can find it at a reasonable price.

During the sessions for this album, the group broke up and the tapes went into a vault (until being released in 1990). Eddy Jobson joined Roxy Music (sort of replacing Brian Eno) and then went on to form UK and then play with Jethro Tull and Frank Zappa. Mike Wedgewood joined caravan. Darryl Way and Francis Monkman rejoined the band, they group went on tour and released an excellent live album in 1975. The group broke up again, Kristina got more new musicians and released a few more albums. Stewart Copeland played in Curved Air before forming the Polic with Sting. Kristina, Way, Monkman and Pilkington-Miska got back together for a nice broadcast concert that is now available on CD under many titles.

Released in 1990, this is taken from recordings sessions from 1974 for what was supposed to be Curved Air's fifth album. It is 34 minutes long and the sound quality is fair to good. The mix is sometimes flat and subdued. The cover is a zoom in of the cover of the first album, Air Conditioning. There are some minimal liner notes and credits.

fantastic 13 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is one of my favorit CD-s but i cannot find it nowhere. I had it on LP and it was destroyed. So it is a big surprise to see that it is on CD. I hope one day I have the opportunity to buy it.
