5.0 out of 5 stars One of Britain's best kept secrets, 11 Aug 2011
This review is from: Children Of Tomorrow (Audio CD)
From their early days as a soul band to their emerging talents as a prog rock band, this is the entire studio output of Mike Stuart Span (not to be confused with their later material under the name of Leviathan).

For psche collectors, it's a MUST, as it illustrates perfectly how the group burst out from the restrictions imposed by their management to become one of the best British psychedelic bands of the 60s. Spine-tingling guitar work and tight arrangements show just how unlucky they were that success never came their way at the time. How ironic it is that their true worth has only been recognised by a later generation.

Having said that, there may be a surprise for northern soul addicts in the quality of their first two Columbia B-sides, as well as in two of the bonus tracks recorded as demos as an attempt to secure a record contract. This was during their period spent as a soul band and it is obvious that they were badly advised on the two A-sides that eventually emerged.

Accompanied by an amazingly comprehensive booklet, full of biographical detail, photographs and press cuttings, this is a great CD for anyone interested in what was going on under the radar in England during the best musical decade ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great re-release, 21 Aug 2011
This review is from: Children Of Tomorrow (Audio CD)
This is a great re-release of some classic material by the Span. They were unsung heroes of their time and it was only bad luck that prevented them from being more well known then they are now. Buy this!
