Format: Audio CD
Dave Mason - Dave Mason / Split Coconut (BGO Records)
A solid 2on1 from BGO featuring a couple of Dave Mason's mid-70s releases. His self-tilted record, originally released in 1974, was his fifth studio effort away from Traffic, and continued his drift away from his earlier progressive sound to a softer pop-rock style. It was recorded with his then touring band, including guitarist Jim Krueger who would later write Mason's biggest hit of the 70s, the horrendously catchy "We Just Disagree". It's an enjoyable collection, with a brilliant version of Dylan's "All Along The Watchtower" (Mason had played on the Hendrix version, six years earlier), together with other favourites from the period, including a re-recorded "Every Woman" and the Traffic-like "Relation Ships".

The second album here, Split Coconut, provides an equal amount of pleasure in its rediscovery. The title track is full of funky goodness, an excellent version of Buddy Holly's "Crying, Waiting and Hoping" continues the winning streak, and "Give Me A Reason Why" and the guitar heavy "Long Lost Friend" provide later highlights. This worthy collection may not be the best place to start discovering Dave Mason's ongoing solo career (check out BGO's Alone Together / Headkeeper release for instant gratification), but if you're already convinced, this is a fine addition to any Traffic related collection. 8/10.

2 more excellent albums from Dave Mason on s single CD at a rock-bottom basement price. How can you possibly go wrong? Having bought his earlier albums I was half expecting a drop in quality on this according to critics reviews. I am glad to report that by and large this is not the case, with some of Mason's strongest material. I have marked this down in comparison to Dave's previous albums only because it lacks their consistency in feel and mood, with the odd cover such as Buddy Holly's 'Crying, Waiting, Hoping', which whilst being enjoyable doesn't 'feel' like a Mason song. It's not the consistency of musicianship that is the issue, with some brilliant guitar work from Mason, but more a question of the overall 'personality' of the album, seeming somewhat erratic at times. Still a thoroughly enjoyable double album and a worthy purchase for any Mason Fan.

Tuneful Winners 20 May 2012
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Dave Mason seems to have primarily gained his reputation as an ace guitarist with Traffic, and as a solo artist. His cover of "All Along the Watchtower" (that is included here) provides ample evidence of his guitar skills. But I think he is equally talented as a singer and songwriter. He has a knack for penning very tuneful songs and burnishing them with his lovely voice. It's a very soothing and melodic style. I always loved the "Split Coconut" album, thinking it was one of his more underrated efforts. It's a pleasure to have that on CD, along with the earlier self-titled album, which is also packed with tuneful goodies. Like the other reviewer said, this would be a fine album to get if you wanted to hear some of the best songs that Dave Mason recorded.

By Quetalal - Published on Amazon.com

These 2 releases by Dave are two of his Best with songs like Show Me Some Affection and Two Guitar Lovers not to mention his version of All Along the Watchtower. For those of you fellow fans this is an essential to your collection. To those of you being introduced to Dave Mason for the first time this would be a perfect place to start!
