5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked classic masterpiece!, 28 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Quatermass (Audio CD)
Before Emerson, Lake and Palmer, all great rock bands had guitars, right? WRONG! The musicianship, creativity, vocals and songwriting on this overlooked gem are superlative. Released in 1970, and recorded at Abbey Road, it was years ahead of it's time, ( a cliche, I know, but nonetheless true.) Members came from various English bands, and all the instrumental work, (drums by Mick Underwood, all manner of keyboards by the gifted Peter Robinson, and massively impressive bass playing from John Gustafson), is superb, as is the unique and powerful vocal work by John, (as strong in ways as Robert Plant, Paul Rodgers, or Paul McCartney at his hardest.) The songs go from hard rock, ("Black Sheep"), to a touching baroque ballad, ("Good Lord Knows"), to jazz from another planet, ("Laughin' Tackle"), to anthemic blues, ("Post-war Saturday Echo"), and never fails. This is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, never even approached by Atomic Rooster, the Nice, or ELP, and is sadly overlooked, as is much of the great rock music of the 20th century. Great songs, great singing and playing, great production, and great band - what else do you need? If this sort of work is your "cup of tea", it doesn't get better than this. (Did I mention that I like this music very much?)
