A Moody Blue in Good Company.,
This review is from: Kick Off Your Muddy Boots (Audio CD)
I've had not heard this album since the late seventies and I sort of forgot all about it. What I do remeber was that I found the follow up "Paradise Ballroom" a disappointment. Greame Edge formed a group during The Moody Blues semester with the two Gurvitz brothers (Gun, Three Man Army etc.) and the keyboard player Mickey Gallagher (formely of the exellent group Arc). They recorded an album that is a blend of hard edge rock and a sixties sound. Just listen to Adrian Gurvitz guitar - it reminds me a lot of George Harrisons playing. The first side of the original album is a killer and the second side is not far behind. This reissue take me back to the lost seventies and I'm glad I gave it another chance. The staff at Esoteric has done a fantastic job as usual. The sound is as crisp as ever and the booklet design is beautiful. Close to a 5 star really!
