One of the great crimes against progressive rock was the absence of this album on American shores, released in 1973 it inexplicably never graced the marketplace of the USA. No one really knows why but when the music is as good as this we do know it was a crime. A tighter quintet appeared on this album, without the sax, to mess with music as only the great prog bands could. Weird time signatures, strange tempo changes and unabounded rock experimentation ahoy! There is some killer percussion work on this impressively adventurous album and it is well worth an earful. If you missed it the first time round catch this remastered and repackaged version and you get two bonus tracks for your troubles.
Authors of one self-titled album dated 1971 Samurai were a British band risen from the still smoldering ashes of Web (just after the release of their third and best LP). The tracks found here represent the best of what British jazz rock has to offer - a sort of King Crimson meets Bloodwin Pig. Notable also for their excellent instrumentals, thanks in part to the help of sax men Don Fay and Tony Roberts. Dale Lawson would soon go on to form Greenslade with Dave Greenslade of Colosseum. A true rarity and indispensable collector’s item! This CD-issue is housed in a thick card digi pack.
Originally only available as a Japanese import, here's a CD re- issue of this album of previously unreleased material by T2 . Planned as the outline of the bands second album, this set of recordings was rediscovered on pristine acetates. They are packed full of excellent progressive rock work-outs yet unfortunately the band split up before the album was completed.... If you love "It'll All Work Out in Boomland" then this is a must. Please note that this CD is taken from the only surviving mono acetates and as such suffers the technical limitations of such a source.
