5.0 out of 5 stars One of the missing greats, 26 Feb 2014

Keith Poole "Still rockin'" (Broadstairs, Kent) - See all my reviews

A live concert from one of the 70's prog rock bands with a difference (no guitars!). This is well recorded and contains a number of tracks not previously on their earlier live CD. Well recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great edition to the Cd collection if already a Greenslade fan, 12 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really enjoyed this. There is not too much duplication from the previous Live CD from the 73/74 tours and this one appears to be the whole set or thereabouts.The performances are excellent and it is great to finally hear a live version of 'Drum Folk'.

This gives a great representation of what it must have been like to have seen them in 1975 with an excellent recording from a radio broadcast. The recording is between the release of 'Spyglass Guest' and 'Time and Tide' which at the time of this concert had not yet been released, even though several songs are performed from it. 'Newsworth' from the latter is a bit disconcerting, as there are no back-up vocals singing the title against Lawson's voice, which for the first couple of times I heard it made me think a mic was not working, as they are missed, when you are used to the studio version. I now wonder if it had not yet been fullly developed at the time of this concert or the others in the band were too shy to sing back up vocals! Who knows. The packaging and paintings (some I am sure are by Arthur Rackham) are in keeping with the style of those 70's albums and there is also an excellent booklet, although at least one of the main photos of the band is with the earlier line up with Tony Reeves, who I believe had left by the time of this concert.

There are always issues for a wider audience with Dave Lawson's rather strangled vocals - which I agree with other reviewers of some of their other cds - are an acquired taste, but if you are already a fan of the original group, then this is a must have purchase.

Now if we can have this unexpected but very welcome release, what is holding up a cd release of 'Cactus Choir' the first album Dave Greenslade made after the band split. Come on Dave get someone to release it soon. Us fans have been waiting far too long.

5.0 out of 5 stars chuffed to bits !, 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delighted to get hold of this priceless recording, Ok the audience sound like its only about twenty and some of the solos aren't quite 'nailed on' quite like the studio recordings but, the spirit of Greenslade is there, This much underrated band made a small but invaluable contribution to Prog which I for one, have always appreciated and loved like an old friend

take a chance ----- enjoy !

I thoroughly enjoyed the CD. It bought back many happy memories of seeing Greenslade live many years ago. I would recommend this CD to anyone who has not been fortunate enough to see Greenslade live.
