expanded Spirit TWELVE DREAMS coming in late February

https://www.cherryred.co.uk/product/spirit-twelve-dreams-of-dr-sardonicus-remastered-expanded-2cd-edition/?mc_cid=e12ea97c08

I'm interested.

Released in November 1970, ‘Twelve Dreams of Dr Sardonicus’ was the fourth by the Spirit line-up of Randy California (guitar, vocals), Ed Cassidy (drums), Jay Ferguson (vocals, percussion), John Locke (keyboards) and Mark Andes (bass) and was produced by David Briggs (best known for his work with Neil Young). Although not the highest charting Sprit album, ‘Twelve Dreams of Dr Sardonicus’ is now regarded as one of the band’s finest works. The album spawned the single ‘Animal Zoo’ and included excellent material such as ‘Nature’s Way’, ‘Mr Skin’, ‘Space Child’, ‘Morning Will Come’ and ‘Soldier’.

Now remastered, the custodian of the Spirit archive has curated this release which has been expanded to include 11 bonus tracks, six previously unreleased, and an additional CD of previously unreleased live recordings from The Fillmore West in San Francisco in May 1970 and The Boston Tea Party in October 1970.

This release also features an illustrated booklet with a new essay by Mick Skidmore and is the ultimate tribute to a classic album.

That album is perfect enough as it is....but still, those mono mixes and the concert sound good to my ears

The mono mixes were on the last CD reissue... they're nice, but not especially revelatory.

I'm very curious about the live material. It's a cool setlist.

It is, not having heard much live Spirit....

Browsing through Cherry Reeds' upcoming release list, think I'll have myself the Fields-double disc and that Five Days Rain looks interesting too.

I’d love the live CD. It’s a shame they don’t release stuff like this separately.

I have already bought the vinyl twice and the cassette for the car back on the day. And at least one CD version!

I won’t be investing. I’m out

Yuck!

I’ve just noticed - why is a live Nature’s Way the penultimate track on CD1…?
