Format: Audio CD
Well, OK: I'm a fan of Goss and Masters of Reality. The first album flipped me, the second and third (studio) I liked, and the fourth (studio) I liked a lot. But this is – and I didn't think I'd say this – the best yet, for me anyway. Goss's influences have always been as much Appalachian pickers and Nick Drake as Sabbath and Stones – and this is where it all come together. 'The Ballad of Jody Frosty' is at least three great songs in one, with strings and the kind of folk-sinister wood vibe Tom Waits used in 'Murder In The Red Barn' from his 'Bone Machine' album. Killer for me is track 2 – 'Voice and The Vision' - a slice of Zep III-esque, neo-Faustian fairytale Mystery Play atmosphere and the catchiest song that never made No.1, Or ever would. In this world.
And so it goes... on and on, this hangs together beautifully. Don't be fooled b y the whole 'Oh this is outtakes' thing: this is what most bands would sell their souls to have as a single, unified album.

This is a much-anticipated release especially as MOR albums are few andfar between but every one offers a fresh and different vibe (contrast say,'Blue Garden' with 'Welcome To The Western Lodge'both great albums butvery different). GUB gathers together MOR/Goss unreleased and rare stuffwhich,I guess makes it a compilation. The reason I say 'I guess' isbecause it hangs together very well. Kicking off with the hitherto elusive'Ballad Of Jody Frosty' which it is a pleasure to finally hear beginsproceedings in a warm,moody haze. GUB has, in the main, a warm intimatevibe which sometimes shows a more playful side to Chris's music in tuneslike 'Off to Tiki Ti' and 'Don't Get Caught By The Huntsman's Bow'. Theonly familiar (to me anyway) song is 'Jindalee Jindalie' (rarer studioversion) which as everyone knows has STP/Velvet Revolver's Scott Weilandon guest vocals; maybe completists of his work will pick this up and getan introduction to the wonderful world of Chris Goss's music.
Thiscollection provides a pleasing contrast to the last Masters release 'Flak& Flight' which was live and fairly heavy.
On early impressions, GUB impresses and will no doubt reveal even more ofitself with repeated listens as the Masters albums always do. Coolpackaging with artwork by Chris (Is there no end to this man's talent?).Asusual, there is little info past crediting the musicians which doesn'tconcern me overly as the music speaks for itself.
Who says real music is dead? Buy and enjoy!

I had listened to a couple of tracks from this album and thought it would be worth trying out the rest.

4.0 out of 5 stars long awaited compilation has arrived 2 Jun. 2004
By T.A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Chris Goss finally apeases the old fans of the first two albums by releasing the compilation of MoR and solo material. A few of the highlighted songs are recorded with old compadre Ginger Baker, as well as the studio version of JJ with Scott Weiland, and the full version of JODY. This one is almost like a "Physical Graffiti"--a CD of really great outtakes recorded over the past 15 or so years, and it kinda begs the question, "Why are we hearing these fantastic songs now?" Wonderful guitar work, mostly acoustic, and melodic vocals set a pretty mellow tone throughout, so don't expect any distortion pedal laced rock songs on this one. If you like Chris Goss' s mellow stuff, get this right away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally! 7 July 2004
By Oscar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For those of us who have been stuck on the Suffer Bus all these years, this CD is manna from heaven! Why Chris Goss and company haven't been in the studio has to be the mystery of the stone age. Goss' vocals on this CD soar (a chorus consisting of Goss, Gerry Rafferty and Jack Bruce would be something to hear) and his guitar work -- both acoustic and bluesy electric -- are vintage MoR. These recordings have been around the dust bin for far too long. Fans want MoR!

4.0 out of 5 stars Barabbas, Import 5 Jan. 2010
By tempunaut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
You should buy this. I promise. My only regret with this fine collection of leftovers is the import price. It boggles the mind as to why American audiences do not appreciate Chris Goss and his works. No American distribution hurts the wallet.
The songs are less coherent than either Masters of Realityor Sunrise on the Sufferbus, but that is to be expected. My understanding is that these tracks are from the cutting room floor of the two. Even though there is less of a cohesive feel, the album is solid and the tracks are just as memorable as anything from Blue and Suffer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give Us Barabbas 29 April 2010
By Jason A. Short - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"The Ballad of Jody Frosty" is a haunting seven and a half minute masterpiece, one of the main reasons I bought the album. One of my favorite vocalists, Scott Weiland, guests on the very pretty "Jindalee Jindalie". Ginger Baker's drumming on "The Desert Song" is outstanding and the cover of John Lennon's "It's So Hard" was a very cool surprise. If you're a fan of Masters of Reality buy this album! I'm glad I did!

Chris's Goss & Co. Do not disappoint on this outing. Great songs and great musicianship don't let the listener down. Also, a guest by the man himself- Ginger Baker doesn't hurt one bit.
