4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Nice Debut, 11 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Canis Lupus (Audio CD)
After leaving Curved Air, Darryl Way formed Wolf with the then "unknown" John Etheridge on guitar and future Marillion drummer Ian Mosley. There are hints of classic Curved Air, bur over all it is a more fusion based album. Bass player Dek Messecars take the vocal duties, but it is the instrumental material that set the standard. A very nice debut. The quality of the Esoteric reissues are as usual of highest standard!

2.0 out of 5 stars The last Strawbs album in my collection, 11 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Burning For You (Audio CD)
As a fan of Strawbs it's a difficult task to review an album that a beginner should try to avoid. The only reason why it is still in my collection is the title track and the last song on the original album. Go for their fantastic work between 1969 - 1975 instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars He's got the blues, 10 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Faro Annie (Audio CD)
This is John Renbourns most blues influental album, but a very English one. Backed by the Pentangle rythm section of Terry Cox and Danny Thompson, this is the album that remind me most of his work with Bert Jansch & Co. So if anyone thought of Renbourn as "academic", this is a testament and proof that you should reconsider your opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Renbourn and McShee together again, 10 Feb. 2009
This review is from: A Maid In Bedlam (Audio CD)
A Maid in Bedlam, JRB:s first album, got a medieval pastoral beauty. Renbourn is back with former Pentangle singer McShee and together with reedman Tony Roberts, fiddler Sue Draheim and tabla player Keshave Sathe they produce music of beauty and (yes) swing. Don't miss this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit pretentious but still a very good album, 10 Feb. 2009
A diffrent creature from the first three Supersister albums. With half the band gone, they sought for a new more "serious" direction. Gone is the weirdness and you get a musical story about Alexander the Great instead. Not as good as before but still very fine Dutch prog rock!

5.0 out of 5 stars Man goes straight but to great effect, 10 Feb. 2009
Long gone is the improvised structured albums that put Man on the map (of Wales and elsewere). Slow Motion is an even more straight forward album than "Whinos", but it is still brilliant. Tunes like "A hard way to die" and "Grasshopper" is classic Man! Highly Recomended! And thanks to the splendid remastered sound and Deke Leonards liner notes it's a revival.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Nice Debut, 10 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Take Something With You (Audio CD)
At last, the (solo) debut by Gary Farr. Very much a piece of it's time, the album influences is both from the English and American "folk movement" in the late sixties. Backed by Mighty Baby and some other guys from Blossom Toes et al, this is a fine record.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gary Farr in Good Company, 10 Feb. 2009
The tunes on Gary Farrs second album is not as strong as on "Take Something With You", but the band that backs him up is fantastic. As before, the rhythm section is members of Mighty Baby. But this time Martin Stone is not in place. So who's to replace that fantastic picker but Richard Thompson! And he is doing a wonderful job. Gary Farrs singing is reminent of fellow Englishman Gordon Jackson, Tim Buckley and Tim Hardin, but is definitive unique. As always, Esoteric has done an exellent remastered reissue.

5.0 out of 5 stars A forgotten gem!, 10 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Arc... At This (Audio CD)
After a state of flux, some former members of Skip Bifferty formed Arc. I never managed to find this album on vinyl, and I had to wait a long time for a CD release. Now it's here, with exellent sound and splendid liner notes. Esoteric has done a great job as usual! And what about the music? It reminds me of Blossom Toes second album (if that's going to help you!) Go ahead and listen, it's worth the effort!

3.0 out of 5 stars Shame about the poor sound quality., 15 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Happy Daze (Audio CD)
I agree with the opinion that the sound quality is really poor. It is the same with Market Square release of Allan Hull's "Phantoms". But at least they inform you about that in the booklet. It is strange that they can't make a proper job. I bought the Japanese edition of "Phantoms" and the sound was exellent (24 bit remaster).

Post script: I bought the Japanese edition in april and the sound quality is exellent (24 bit remaster). I wonder what the guys at Market Square are doing?

The album itself is rather good. But it is a shame that Alan Hull don't take the lead vocal more often.
