3.0 out of 5 stars Quatermass II - 'Long Road' (Angel Air), 18 Nov 2007
This review is from: Long Road (Audio CD)
Guess this is a follow-up to the self-titled Quatermass lp that emerged in 1970. Heard that album literally went out as quick as it came. 'Long Road' is a reunion of the band, with just one original member - drummer Mick Underwood. Joining up here with Underwood Nick Simpler (Deep Purple's original bass player) and two top session players Gary David and Bart Foley. 'Long Road' might be a less bit progressive than the first lp, but more basic rock and roll. Some of the tracks that I thought were decent are "Good Day To Die", title cut "Long Road" and "Daylight Robbery". Would be good to hear on a quiet week night.

I have never heard the original Quatermass album but I know it sold well. This sequel features one original band member, Mick Underwood, the drummer. However, the line up is bolstered by Nick Simper (ex Deep Purple Mk 1, Fandango and The Pirates) who gives the album a polished edge. This is a respectably good rock album - the songs are solid, the vocals and musicianship strong. It has plenty enough to recommend it to any rock music fan - a good listen.

As a footnote, Nick Simper mentioned to me that the band and name came about over a drink at a music convention. Nick and Mick Underwood were talking about forming a band when an ex-Deep Purple manager chipped in and suggested they revived the Quatermass name - as Quatermass II...and the rest is history.

This review is from: Long Road (Audio CD)
Oh no! I recently rebought the original Quatermass album and just love that 70s hammond sound. A great album, recommended. This however is another proposition. Think, who were the stars of the original album? The bass player singer? YES. The Organist? YES. The drummer? hmm well he was OK. Now fast forward a decade or so, Quatermass 2, original bass player? No. Original organist? No. Original drummer? Yes, but only him. The music? 80s MOR, AOR. Whats in a name? Cashing in thats what. If you like 80s guitar driven AOR then give this a spin, but 70s Quatermass it aint
