5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked classic masterpiece! 28 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
Before Emerson, Lake and Palmer, all great rock bands had guitars, right? WRONG! The musicianship, creativity, vocals and songwriting on this overlooked gem are superlative. Released in 1970, and recorded at Abbey Road, it was years ahead of it's time, ( a cliche, I know, but nonetheless true.) Members came from various English bands, and all the instrumental work, (drums by Mick Underwood, all manner of keyboards by the gifted Peter Robinson, and massively impressive bass playing from John Gustafson), is superb, as is the unique and powerful vocal work by John, (as strong in ways as Robert Plant, Paul Rodgers, or Paul McCartney at his hardest.) The songs go from hard rock, ("Black Sheep"), to a touching baroque ballad, ("Good Lord Knows"), to jazz from another planet, ("Laughin' Tackle"), to anthemic blues, ("Post-war Saturday Echo"), and never fails. This is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, never even approached by Atomic Rooster, the Nice, or ELP, and is sadly overlooked, as is much of the great rock music of the 20th century. Great songs, great singing and playing, great production, and great band - what else do you need? If this sort of work is your "cup of tea", it doesn't get better than this. (Did I mention that I like this music very much?)

4.0 out of 5 stars Quatermass II - self-titled (Repertoire) 10 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
First came out in 1970, even better than the band's much delayed follow-up, 2000's Quatermass II - 'Long Road' (see my review). Overall, just good British progressive. Tracks here I thought made this CD worth giving a spin every now and again were "Black Sheep In The Family", "Good Lord Knows", the eight-minute ELP-like "Make Up Your Mind" and "One Blind Mice" (sort of reminds me of Deep Purple). Line-up: Johnny Gustafson - bass & vocals, Pete Robinson - keyboards and Mick Underwood - drums. Note that Underwood is the only same player that shows up on the previously mentioned 'Long Road' follow-up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Innovative music. 22 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is unusual in two ways, firstly it is a three piece and not the conventional 4 or 5 piece as the other pioneering bands were at the time. Secondaly it contains no guitars (excluding bass). This album is original and fresh, even today, with a very tight, precise drummer in Mick Underwood. Pete Robinson is a great keyboard player who can take on many styles and can justafiable be classes as in the same league as Jon Lord and Don Airey. Johnny Gustafson as well as being one of the top pick bass players has, in my opinion, one of the best rock voices out there and whose tallants were never truely recognised.

As another reviewer said the songs are not instanly memourable (except black sheep of the family) but it is a very rewarding album to listen to and definitly questions rocks reliance on guitars.

This ablum is a great addition to any rock collection and is no longer given its due credit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Rock - The Way It Should Be 26 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album was one of the classics from the '70s.

The musicians had a strong track record of previous band membership including the Herd; the Don Ellis Jazz Orchestra and the Merseybeats. They were innovative in their time, adopting a variety of techniques and creating several different moods. Originally launched on the Harvest label, the album is every bit as fresh thirty years later as it was then. The musicianship is very strong, from Robinson's jazzy piano and thunderous organ solo in Post War, Saturday Echo to Underwood's drum virtuoso in Laughin' Tackle.

As far as the band being a one album wonder as another reviewer stated, this is inaccurate. Their second album was due to be launched to rave pre-reviews by John Peel and the music press. Just before launch date, the band broke up and the album was never published (thus I suspect the bonus tracks). The bass player, John Gustafson ultimately joined Roxy Music; Mick Underwood, the drummer joined Gillan and Pete Robinson, the master keyboard player of the band went on to be a member of the superb and prolific band - Brand X.

Yes, you can compare them to Nice; Deep Purple; Zeppelin or ELP - just don't. Enjoy Quatermass for what they are - good clean progressive rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars QUATERMASS 1 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First released in 1970, it is difficult to believe that this band was a trio, given the sound they made. This album is a fabulous slice of progressive rock, with a hefty splash of hard rock for good measure! The mood of this album is at times heavy - at others, quite subtle. The stand out track is a favourite of Ritchie Blackmore's, 'Black Sheep Of The Family' - when you here this, you can see where some of the Rainbow influences came from. All in all, a great album and a classic of its era. Now check out Quatermass II.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 26 Sep 2014
By Shez
Format:Audio CD
Prog rock is a strange beast. I have bought many CD versions of my old favourites from the early seventies, and really enjoyed them - and the memories that they resurrected. However, this album only recently came to my attention, after hearing about the death of John Gustafson (Big Three, Merseybeats, Roxy Music) and the fact that he was a member of this band. After reading the reviews, I bought the album - what a disappointment. Apart from 'Black Sheep of the Family', the music, mainly organ based with the vocals too far back in the mix, is turgid and boring. If this album brings back memories for you from 1970, then go ahead and buy it. Otherwise forget it!
