Product Description

GEP are set to release the 2013 remix of Tales from the Lush Attic on the 23rd of January 2013 in both a double disc CD/DVD format and on vinyl.Producer Mike Holmes:When we did the 25th anniversary edition of The Wake we took the finished stereo mix and re-mastered it.It made a big difference to the overall sound,but we weren't able to give it a complete remix because the multi track tapes had been lost in the mists of time.However with Tales we could go right back to the beginning,using the original 24 track tapes to build the mix from scratch.It was great to finally give this album the mix it deserved.I've spent years avoiding the studio release of Tales,just because I knew it could be so much better.It is now.The 30th anniversary special edition of Tales,is a double disc hard back 32 page book with lots of extras,including the complete remix of the album and a DVD featuring live video footage of material from Tales,along with a host of MP3 files,original mixes,audio commentary and previously unreleased writing/rehearsal/demo material.Tales from the Lush Attic 2013 remix will also be available in limited edition vinyl format:180 gram,gatefold sleeve.

I'm a big IQ fan since 1989 - the year they released 'Are You Sitting Comfortably?' with Paul Menel. Back then we had a radio show in the Netherlands that played 2 CD tracks of new CDs (LP&CD Show it was called) and so began my journey into Prog. Much later I also got the remastered version of 'Lush Attic' but it was never one of my favorite IQ albums - as Ever and Subterranea still are. But this new 2013 remix is a real 'ear-opener'! I can't believe this is the same album... So much better! Hopefully they will play some tracks of Lush Attic (along with some new stuff) this April when I'm going to see them.

Ah yes. I suppose it's pretty hard to be objective about an album you've lived with and loved for nearly thirty years. So I won't even try. All I can say is that Tales from the Lush Attic deserves to be up there with Selling England by the Pound, Close to the Edge, Brain Salad Surgery and whatever other "prog rock classics" might spring to mind. It's full of fine playing, great melodies, wonderful atmospheres and, when required, breathtaking aggression. Most of all, this album is full of passion. You really get a sense that these are five young men desperate to say something and absolutely loving the chance to do so. Perhaps it seems a moot point to describe something as classic when it sits so firmly in the middle of an already long-existing genre. But let's face it, with a 20 minute epic on one side (in old money, that is) and a 15 minute epic to close, there's no escaping what the influences are and what the intention is. But that shouldn't detract from what IQ achieved on this album, even if it arrived ten years after those classics referenced above. And let's face it, prog is a genre where classic albums continue to be made to this day. Where IQ succeeded on Tales... where so many other prog wannabes have failed is that this is a record all about passion. There's no sense that the music on Tales is polite and studious, or originating from any supposed sense of snobbery in carrying on a `classical' tradition. It is all about that sense of passion - in the music and the playing, in the lyrics and most definitely in Peter Nicholls evocative vocals. Everything has a sense of being on the edge, as though committing this music to vinyl back in 1983 wasn't simply a task on someone's checklist, a contractual obligation or just the "oh why not?" conclusion to a cosy bedroom hobby.Read more ›

Bought this 30 years when first released - and loved it ever since then. But, the new version is so much better. Mr Holmes has done a simply wonderful job with the remix. The band have done their fans proud with the whole classy package, it is total quality and amazing value for money. This has to be a manditory purchase for any IQ fan. Guess I'll have to 'bite the bullet' and buy the 25th anniversary version of 'The Wake' now...

I remember having old copies of 'Tales...' and 'The Wake' back when I first started getting into prog rock bands whilst at secondary school in the mid to late 1980s. Despite enjoying some of IQ's tunes, I always thought that the sound quality on those albums was pretty awful and that Peter Nicholls' vocal performances were too much of a Peter Gabriel facsimile, so I drifted away from them and stuck with my beloved Marillion, Yes and Genesis.
In around 1999, I found out that IQ were performing at the Bury Met, which is only about 25 minutes drive from where I lived and it was only £10 a ticket, so I went along, hoping that they might play some old tunes and win me over again with one or two new tracks. Unbeknownst to me, they were touring in support of their then epic, magnum opus, double album, 'Subterranea', which I'd never heard. I stood there for a good two and a half hours, trying to digest totally brand new music and despite the overall quality of the performance, I decided that I'd made a bad decision and discounted IQ altogether.
Recently, completely by accident I got to hear 'Fading Senses' from their 'Ever' album and was blown away, so I decided to get on 'YouTube' and rediscover the band again. The old songs seemed so much better than I remembered them, so when I discovered that the band had released a remixed version of 'Tales...', I decided to give it a go.
What guitarist, Mike Holmes has done with those original recordings is a revelation. There's a clarity and sharpness that was never there before, with certain nuances coming out in the mix that are an absolute delight.
Opening track, the 20 minute behemoth, 'The Last Human Gateway' has more depth and is a smoother, more absorbing listening experience with a lovely juxtaposition of atmosphere and power.

If you're into Prog. Rock this album should be in your collection along with all their other albums. I first heard this band over thirty years ago while I was an architectural student drawing up a project late one Friday night in my tenement flat in Dundee listening to the Friday Night Rock show hosted by Tommy Vance. I can remember the hairs on the back of my head standing up and they still do whenever I listen to this band. I'm a huge Genesis fan and have had the privilege of seeing them a number of times and I've got all their albums. Focus, Yes, Pallas, Wishbone Ash are other bands which I have followed over the years along with many other bands and artists of a varied and diverse nature. However, of all these there is only one band whose album's I have bought without hearing a note and none has disappointed. It amazes me to this date how IQ have remained relatively unknown.
Take a punt on this album, it won't be the last IQ album you buy, I can guarantee that.
