Product Description

RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2008 CLASSIC PROGRESSIVE JAZZ ROCK ALBUM REISSUED ON CD OFFICIALLY FOR THE FIRST TIME 24-BIT REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES. Heaven, a jazz rock group from Portsmouth, burst forth onto the British rock scene in 1970 when they appeared at the legendary Isle of Wight festival sharing a bill with The Who, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix et al. Making a stunning debut, the band (now managed by festival organiser Rikki Farr), soon secured a recording deal with CBS Records who signed the band for a large advance. The resulting double album 'Brass Rock 1' appeared in 1971, adorned in a lavish fold-out sleeve. Well received critically, the album failed to achieve the expected success and Heaven soon disbanded, leaving behind a fine example of classic jazz rock. This Esoteric Recordings reissue is digitally remastered from the original master tapes and restores the artwork of the album in full.

Format: Audio CD
I heard a track from this album in 1971 on John Peel's Sounds of the Seventies and just had to buy it. It remained one of my favourite LPs until I put them away in a cupboard in favour of CDs and I've been looking for a CD reissue for years. Why has it taken so long? (I was also looking for Brass Rock 2 for many years before I realised this was probably the only album they made! The CD sleevenotes confirm this.)
As for the music, the combination of the expressive jazz and rock rhythms with raw vocals is a perfect example of how the two genres can meld together. Every track has sufficient variety of texture, riff and instrumentation to be a mini masterpiece on its own. Play the album all the way through and you will feel you have listened to a great musical work. There is no weak filler material here: tight guitar work; saxophone and flute improvisation; a classy brass section; quality bass lines; solid ryhthms; raucous vocals, although most tracks are predominantly instrumental. There is plenty of jazz feel to the album, but with the rock base never far away. A genuine combination. I love it.

Fine collection of jazzrock, blues rock, and avant garde jazz interludes interspersed with heavy blasts of rifferama from time to time. Vocals are perhaps a bit on the light side bu the remastering certainly enhances the finished article from what I remember when I first heard this some forty odd years ago.

Well packaged CD with lots of information regarding the band and the tracks.

Another example that shows there is no justice in the music biz. Here is Heaven, a wonderfully talented band in the Chicago, B,S&T, If, Sons of Champlin mould. The band played around the South Coast of England culminating by playing at the Isle of Wight festival. In the end it all came to nothing and they split but we should be thankful that this, their only offering, is available over 40 years on. Highly reccomended if you like your wah-wah guitar interlaced with sharp brass. Top playing all round.

A great album that will appeal to blues rock and prog rock fans alike! Hard to believe they weren't more successful at the time given the quality of tracks on this album. Comes highly recommended.
