By Dr. D. B. Sillars VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
For anyone into keyboard based prog rock from the 70's this release is manna from heaven. Refugee, the trio of Patrick Moraz (keyboards), Lee Jackson (bass, vocals) and Brian Davison (drums) only made one studio album before Moraz was whisked away by Yes. For many who deem the debut album "Refugee" as a classic of the genre, they were left wanting more, knowing that was that. Well, while biographer Martyn Hanson was interviewing Brian Davison back in 2001 he asked if there were any live tapes of "The Nice". He had none, but did have a C90 cassette of live "Refugee", recorded at Newcastle City Hall in 1974. It's from that tape that this CD has been produced. Now, the prospect of a live album taken from a cassette does not bode well, but this was recorded straight from the mixing desk. Surprisingly it sounds pretty good. Not outstanding as there are a few sonic limitations as would be expected. But it's the performances that shine through. The band are on top form and rip through extended selections from their album, still to be released when this was recorded, as well as a take on The Nice's "The Diamond Hard Blues Apples Of the Moon" and a couple of unreleased gems, including a fantastic work out of Bob Dylans "She Belongs To Me" with some bonkers synths from Moraz.

Moraz's keyboard playing is outstanding, as he moves effortlessly around his arsenal of synths, Hammond organ, electric piano, clavinets and so forth. Some of his playing is really funky, especially on the final track, "Refugee Jam", where the band show how well they interact in a live setting. You are left wishing there was more of this stuff! Lee Jackson's bass is really up-front and punchy, though his vocals, never the strongest part of this band, really highlight the limitations of the source recording.

By 70s VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I loved the Nice etc in the 60s/70s. I loved the heavy keybord driven songs of Traffic, Hardin and York and Spooky Tooth. Refugee only released one album and then that was it, Mr Moraz went to join Yes and Lee and Brians musical days were over. The folks of today don't know what they have missed. Well now here is a chance to find out. Sourced from a cassette ( remember them?) This gig was a chance to see where the Nice might have gone if Mr Emerson hadn't jumped ship. Yes, Lee Jacksons vocals, although fitting some songs, really were very poor, annoyingly so in some cases, yet somehow they seemed to suit the music. (You can see why Greg Lake was such a more attractive prospect as a bass player/singer). But, Brian Davisons drumming always was brilliant and driving, as much so as anything Carl Palmer ever did and also generated such a mood of anticipation throughout the live gigs that Emerson never again gained the power that Brian could generate during a concert. Pat M plays like a demon and the whole concert just....rocks. Do yourself a favour experience the driving analogue synths and Hammonds that only the 70s could really do authentically. This is a step back in time

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Gem 9 Nov 2010
By Smiffy
Format:Audio CD
I remember hearing Ritt Mickley late one night on Radio Luxembourg & on the strength of that got my local record shop to seek out Refugees only vinyl album, 'Refugee'. Great album. The vinyl got put in the loft & the CD took over. When idly looking for a CD version of the vinyl album I came across this. What a great little recording. Yeah, it's not that slick & rough around the edges but what a gem! If you liked the studio album, this is worth the effort. Patrick Moraz is fab on keyboards (not sure about the alpen horn though). Brian Davidson's drumming is a great tribute to this now lost talent. Lee Jackson's singing ... hmmm. Ok, call it vocals. It is Lee. Sung in the key of H, He may get a lot of stick for his vocals but it is part of the character of the band. (sorry Lee, just jesting). This is a great live performance. I wouldn't be parted from my copy.
