Every now and again I have to give HP a listen just to see if my views about them have changed. Reading a biography of Steve Marriott at the moment and thought I'd give this another listen but I can't even get through the first side, just abysmal, what a waste of talent. That voice demoted to shouty overblown R'n'B if that's what you can call it, no wonder Frampton abandoned ship. Just really unpleasant to listen to.

Side 2 is incredible: I Walk On Gilded Splinters. A great live epic.



I'll try.

Don't bother. Awful band. :x

I’ll have to respectfully disagree. Performance is a great live album and I Walk On Gilded Splinters is a well structured, brilliantly executed epic. Of its time, of course, but I’d put it up there with Dazed & Confused, Dark Star and Whipping Post. The sound quality is awesome, possibly the best sounding live album of the 1970s (if only Yessongs could have been like this). And you know, Peter fucking Frampton...what’s not to like?

So I’ve moved on to Space Truckin’ from Made In Japan...another live epic classic.

Really great sounding, as well. Rock On!

I adore this track - and to think it was less than couple of years short of forty years ago!

It’s not the 1980s, by any chance :lol:? Good song though, not heard that before.

Haven't heard this in a while, better than I remembered, wish I had it in the original puppet cover.

I really rate this album and it tends to be my go to Hendrix platter

Probably their best although I stopped buying after Raw Siennna, a band with much promise who never really delivered. Soft spot for 'Getting To The Point' as well, always really liked Mr Downchild.

This is very good.

With Pete Jones (as a point of reference, blind guy, records as Tiger Moth Tales and in Camel of late) lending his excellence with far rockier vocals than his usual output) the songs are strong and his voice is great.

Another one with Pete Jones, although I didn’t know it at the time. His part is (I believe) only a spoken part as The Father in a storyline.

Very wide ranging prog album with lots of different styles, lots of keys and sax from band leader Marek Arnold.

One listen, pretty impressive. (I wasn’t a great fan of the previous album “Fetish” which was a bit fusionesque IIRC, but will have to revisit it now.)

Originating from Germany, Seven Steps To The Green Door - “The? Lie” - a follow up in the storyline debut in their 2nd album 8 years ago. This is their 5th album.
