5.0 out of 5 stars One of the missing greats 26 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A live concert from one of the 70's prog rock bands with a difference (no guitars!). This is well recorded and contains a number of tracks not previously on their earlier live CD. Well recommended.

Really enjoyed this. There is not too much duplication from the previous Live CD from the 73/74 tours and this one appears to be the whole set or thereabouts.The performances are excellent and it is great to finally hear a live version of 'Drum Folk'.

This gives a great representation of what it must have been like to have seen them in 1975 with an excellent recording from a radio broadcast. The recording is between the release of 'Spyglass Guest' and 'Time and Tide' which at the time of this concert had not yet been released, even though several songs are performed from it. 'Newsworth' from the latter is a bit disconcerting, as there are no back-up vocals singing the title against Lawson's voice, which for the first couple of times I heard it made me think a mic was not working, as they are missed, when you are used to the studio version. I now wonder if it had not yet been fullly developed at the time of this concert or the others in the band were too shy to sing back up vocals! Who knows. The packaging and paintings (some I am sure are by Arthur Rackham) are in keeping with the style of those 70's albums and there is also an excellent booklet, although at least one of the main photos of the band is with the earlier line up with Tony Reeves, who I believe had left by the time of this concert.

There are always issues for a wider audience with Dave Lawson's rather strangled vocals - which I agree with other reviewers of some of their other cds - are an acquired taste, but if you are already a fan of the original group, then this is a must have purchase.

Now if we can have this unexpected but very welcome release, what is holding up a cd release of 'Cactus Choir' the first album Dave Greenslade made after the band split. Come on Dave get someone to release it soon. Us fans have been waiting far too long.

5.0 out of 5 stars chuffed to bits ! 5 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Delighted to get hold of this priceless recording, Ok the audience sound like its only about twenty and some of the solos aren't quite 'nailed on' quite like the studio recordings but, the spirit of Greenslade is there, This much underrated band made a small but invaluable contribution to Prog which I for one, have always appreciated and loved like an old friend

take a chance ----- enjoy !

I thoroughly enjoyed the CD. It bought back many happy memories of seeing Greenslade live many years ago. I would recommend this CD to anyone who has not been fortunate enough to see Greenslade live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got mine today. 1 Jan 2014
By Edward A. Schatz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This cd is a gem, brilliant, vibrant and they are in top form. There is so much going on in these songs, as opposed to the stardard studio cuts, it's just a world opf difference. For anyone that loves Greenslade, you must have a copy, nothing more I can say.

3.0 out of 5 stars WORTHWHILE EXAMPLE OF LATE PERIOD GREENSLADE 2 Mar 2014
By Stuart Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This concert is a workman-like set during the last months of Greenslade. While the band isn't playing by rote, nor exactly on automatic pilot, the band's previous live release is better. That's not to say that there isn't some good music here--there is. The keyboards together weave a tapestry of sound that's pure Greenslade--especially the sound of the mellotron. But by this stage the band had been playing together for a few years, and it shows. I'm a Greenslade fan since the beginning, and I'm glad to have another live set to add to their slim discography, especially with good overall sound.

The band had a new recruit on bass, but the core unit was still playing intuitively as they always seemed to do. The vocals were never the band's strong suit--it was the great combination of two keyboardists propelled by a solid rhythm section that gave the band it's sound. And this live set does show what the band does best--taking tracks from previous albums and weaving them together into a good listening experience.

Greenslade fans will want to check this new set out. It's a good indication of what the band sounded like during it's last stage as a band. But for the real Greenslade experience, their four studio albums--especially parts of the first and third albums, and most all of the second album have the band's high points. But as I said, I'm glad to have another example of this short-lived band in my music library.

5.0 out of 5 stars great release for a Greenslade fan 23 Mar 2014
By V. Pham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the Martin Briley line-up on Time & Tide, nevertheless playing a fair amount of older material.

1. Pilgrim's Progress
2. Newsworth
3. The Flattery Stakes
4. Bedside Manners Are Extra
5. Joie de Vivre
6. Waltz For A Fallen Idol
7. The Ass's Ears
8. Drum Folk
9. Spirit Of The Dance

This release shares 3 songs with the "Greenslade Live" release, which has Tony Reeves on bass guitar.

Both releases provide insight into the musicianship of this group, with the Stockholm concert showcasing Dave Lawson's solos and Andrew McCulloch on drums a bit more.

If you already like this band, this is a very enjoyable listening experience.

If you are new to this band, or exploring this genre, the more approachable studio recordings "Bedside Manners Are Extra" and "Time And Tide" provide a lot of the material in this recording and may be a better place to start.
