Finishing up my re-listen of this set (inspired by the recent thread) with 'All Around My Hat.' I've now decided that 'Below the Salt' is my favorite SS album over 'Parcel of Rogues.' 'Parcel' was my first so still a favorite, but God did they fall off a fucking cliff after that one. AAMH sounds better than I remembered, though.

Next up, the 'Lark of the Morning' set for the early albums.

Canadian band’s 2nd album.

It’s taken 8 years for them to come up with a follow up to an excellent debut - and it’s just over 30 minutes long. :shock:

Sounds pleasant enough but seriously! 30 mins?

Image

Another short one at 26 mins but at least it’s released as an ep.

My two faves too.

Do you know this one - I think it is most excellent and contains one of their greats

Playing it now. Very different from Halfbreed. More jazzy and a bit Chicago-like.

Doesn’t appeal to me in the way Halfbreed does.

JPL - Sapiens Chapitre 1/3 Exordium

French guy Jean Pierre Louveton and some guests. Sung in French, though largely instrumental. He is a member of established / respected band Nemo.

Not bad, nice guitar, accomplished as you’d expect from the pedigree of the writer and contributors.

Yes, it's part of the set I was listening to. I think it's better than Now We Are Six but still rather a step down for the previous glories.

"Remastered and Expanded" Olias Of Sunhillow to be released in a couple of months. Mind, the "expansion" is just a DVD with a hi-res transfer of the album, plus a 5.1 "upmix" (read: "electronically re-channeled to simulate surround"). (Cue C. complaining about useless DVDs...)

No I can see that.

A lot less guitar and more brass

Spit James the lead guitarist left after Halfbreed so that was probably a factor.

I love the brass but I can see th shift is possible a bit too much for some

Try the second - you never know Bob!

I never took to this album but I didn't really give it much of an chance...

Time for a reappraisal perhaps?

Haven't played this for ages - really good album. About to be reissued which reminded me that I had it.

The best thing about the original album was the packaging. I love him with Yes, but this sounds indulgent, and, dare I say, amateurish

I confess, I don't think I've heard it since the '70s, and no more than a couple of times then. I remember enjoying it, though.

A swift change of mood. Great Pumpkins' album - you like a bit of noise don't you C?

Indeed my learned friend

I bought this album at the time.

I liked it - I haven’t played it for decades though

Perhaps I should rectify that...?

What an incredible live album this is?

I love the Captain's banter and responses to the heckler's shouting for requests. Brilliant!!






Talking of brilliant- this is a fine live album

Robust stuff?

I think so
