4.0 out of 5 stars Great and twee with proper bass playing, 10 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Wonderworld (Audio CD)
This was the last time the band would be at it's most original. Some good songs and 3 or 4 weak ones. Their bass player would not appear again except according to the book Wizards and Demons, on a single called Prima Donna in October 1974. I am sure main writer Ken Hensley would agree this made a difference. Although great bass players would follow, a distinct contribution to the songs and identity was lost. Gary Thain read charts from an early age and always had an ego free approach to playing an accompaniment instrument, unless otherwise and rarely required, as on Suicidal Man on this cd. You don't here this style much in Rock, Greg Ridley from Humble Pie also had it, as if taught on Double Bass. The bass sound quality was also very clear in concert when I saw them Dec.1st in Auckland 1974. They also had a the best frontman in the '70's. Just ahead of Ian Anderson. Buy this for the bass and vocals.
