"Vivaldi" has to be the most outstanding track as well as the longest. Incredible violin, bass and synthesiser work. "Propositions" has a brilliant guitar passage, either Francis playing a duet with his delay line, or with another (uncredited) guitarist. The closing track, "Everdance", is the weakest link; it suffers by comparison with "Vivaldi", which immediately precedes it. All the tracks sound substantially different to their originals - don't expect the studio tracks with a bit of atmosphere. That isn't how things were done back then...
Released on Deram in 1975, this calling card brings seven of their most popular compositions recorded at two UK dates that year in a reunion of the original line-up that nails their reputation as a classy and vital live act.
Harder than their studio counterparts, `It Happened Today, `Marie Antoinette', charting single `Back Street Luv', and extended, blistering workouts of `Propositions' and `Vivaldi' summate the interplay between Way and keyboardist/guitarist Francis Monkman and catch Kristina's distinctive voice in agreeably throaty form.
Thrummingly entertaining, a valid point of entry to an intriguing band, this is also timely: those first two releases - Airconditioning and Second Album - are being reissued by Warner's classy Rhino imprint.
They were unknown to me but were brilliant.
They had a strange looking but ahead of its time picture disc LP that had two different sides and had had a minor hit with 'It Happened Today' as a single.
What was clear is that they were a set of great muscians with a really good vocalist and female to boot.
The musicianship shone through Monkman and Day especially and with Sonja they had a vocalist who had the voice and looks...
They were really excellent live and captured a new audience from the start.
After the concert the band was friendly and new and anxious to meet their fans/ they signed all the proffered autograph books and prom cards. I thought it was a joke when Florian Pilkington-Miksa signed his name!
I still have the autographs today.
At the timeI recall Sonja Kristina was a little upset that their new single Back Street Luv had been banned by the BBC- -the theme was too strong.
The tracks on this Excellent CD were recorded at Cardiff and Bristol in December 1974.
The line up was
Francis Monkman Ian Eyre the original bassist was replaced by Philip Kohn and he makes an excellent replacement.
All the musicianship is top notch.
The track listing is
It Happened Today,
Back Street Luv,
The technical competence of this outstanding group of musicians goes without saying. In a live context the music vibe is powered by the rush from their enthusiastic audience.
What else can I say? You may well prefer some tracks over others. I probably enjoy the chart rocker, 'Back Street Luv' most - but your taste may differ - and besides it depends on my mood.
This is one of my all-time favourite CDs. Please crank the volume, because believe me, they were loud! Wearing headphones takes me right back. I was there for the whole tour, and they were kind enough to give me a credit on the sleeve.
Amazing band, fabulous CD.
