I discovered JADE WARRIOR through the VERTIGO Double Vinyl Album Sampler "Suck It And See" from 1973. A track entitled MWENGA SKETCH appeared on this set, which is a lively & heavy dose of Santana-esq beats going from heavy to soft and to heavy again. The details of the track were not specified to a new album release by this UK progressive rock band, only described as COMING SOON/TO BE RELEASED by the label. Unfortunately, with poor sales and lack of interest and promotion of their previous albums, Vertigo decided to withdrew their contract with them, and the sample track, followed by material for the next two albums were shelved, never to be released, with the band immediately changing label (ISLAND) and direction. The guitarist TONY DUHIG sadly passed away in 1990, and much interest to release the bands rare recordings by the other group members had begun, only to have taken some years to have ECLIPSE released by a re-issue company (ACME) and to have the album fully remastered and with original artwork that was to be used if released in the 70s.

The Album re-release was deleted and is very rare. It was the decision by European label REPERTOIRE to again release ECLIPSE, as well as the other album recorded at the same time, entitled FIFTH ELEMENT, which was the band's final album, with a mix of Heavy and soft sounds, compared to their new softer direction on the ISLAND label.

Overall, my opinion on ECLIPSE, is an amazing experience....their debut and second album work towards the direction of soft to heavy melodic sounds, with the volume slightly turned down. By the third, and classic album, LAST AUTUMN'S DREAM, they managed to mix both the heavy/soft sound pretty well, but there is still the element of creating lengthy peaceful & dreamy tracks.

ONLY IF YOU WANTA' ROCK 4 Feb. 2006
By HOG( I WANT IT ALL) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A great listen.This album rocks more than the previous three.It starts out slow which is not what this CD is.Too Many Heroes really rocks and possibly could have been a FM hit had it been released on time (1973).SONG FOR A SOLDIER is a rather strange piece, a protest song of sort.Maenga Sketch is the stand out piece in my opinion,an instrumental it has all;the tribal beat,japanese flute, intense guitar chops,and a hint of THREE-HORNED DRAGON KING near the end.Holy Roller is another heavy on the guitar song which brings us to House of Dreams. It is a soundscape piece,well put together and placed perfectly at the end of the CD.I don't want to mislead you,JW had released better tracks on previous work.This CD does have more Rock and Roll than their previous work.There is not a bad track on it but be forewarned,if you are looking for mood music stay away,if you wanta ROCK then this CD is for you!

Strange Rock Fusion, Ahead Of It's Time. 1 July 2009
By Stephen KEEN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album could have been a best seller long ago. Well it's never too late for people to appreciate it.
It is only recently that I have sampled the lesser known albums of Jade Warrior. These were recorded way back [1973 for this one], but were never properly released or marketed until lately. I can recommend "Eclipse" because it's strong Rock content will appeal to many. On this album it would appear that bass player,vocalist Glyn Harvard provided his own major input. If you have enjoyed "Released" & "Last Autmn's Dream" then you had best get your hands [& your heads!] around a copy of this.
The opening track, a gentle song "English Morning" has nothing to do with the rest of the album.[it is not the only time the band have done this sort of thing]. But next "Sanga" is a fusion of Rock & African with extensive use of conga & percussion, jazz-rock flute, & Tony Duhig's guitar. On the following track "Too Many Heroes" Tony really gets rocking. This is a fine rock number, but still distinctly Jade Warrior, & it will strike a chord with many a rocker.
"Soldier Song" has heavy vocals from Glynn, more rock guitar from Tony, & uses conga & other percussion including the odd & interesting addition of a bell tree before the lenghty instrumental "Mwenga Sketch" which continues fast rocking African rhythms reminiscent of "Barazinbar" from the album "Released", with quite ingenious percussion & more rock guitar from Tony.
"Holy Roller" is another rocking number with vocals from Glynn & rhythm guitar from Tom Newman [a long associate of the band]. The final stunning track "House of Dreams" defies a description by me & is best left to the individual listener.
Somehow "Eclipse" sounds more 'now' than 1973, ahead of it's time I would say.
This album is an oddity. But Jade Warrior never did follow a recognizable format. It sounds unfinished in some way, & it just so happens that this album has a partner - "Fifth Element", with it's similar cover art, is like a "disc 2" continuation of "Eclipse", I recommend collecting both.

Why did it take so long? 11 Jun. 2009
By Joseph J. Sciortino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Along with "Fifth Element" this album was recorded in 1973, but because of the changes going on in the rock scene at the time, Vertigo records decided to leave this in their archives..What a shame.."Eclipse was a fully realized LP and it showed a slighly different side to Jade Warrior mainly due to the inclusion of Glyn Havard...His presence brought a little bit of a rockier side to Jade though not as heavy as "Released". "Eclipse" and "5th Element" brought in a sound that both Jon Field and Tony Duhig felt was too ordinary and not the direction they wanted to pursue. They percieved a more abstract style, based on instrumentals with an Eastern theme that would take Jade Warrior into a new age direction recording 4 timeless albums for Island Records..That is not to say that "Eclipse" is in any way ordinary..Though not my favorite JW LP it still has much to offer..Glyn wrote some wonderful songs.."English Morning" along with "Holy Roller" and "House of Dreams" and "Too Many Heroes", shows another direction in their musical repertoire that proves Jade Warrior were anything but "ordinary". Bravo brave warriors and good luck with the newly reformed group ..

One of the Better Vertigo Recordings 19 April 2010
By C. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you look at Eclipse on the level of "Album Oriented Rock", it equals Last Autumn's Dream and has the band's best pop song attempt with the ballad, English Morning, opening the CD. Sanga is a great jam tune, Soldiers Song & Too Many Heros is in keeping with the year they recorded it.
Mwenga Sketch is just incredible! Great jam!
House of Dreams for me is the weakest cut but that is just me.
Great spin!
