Jazz generally does have a tune but they don’t necessarily play it to you.

I got this album in 1977, it had been deleted and was going cheap.

I loved it right away. It was decades before I heard the debut, paired with this one on CD.

Took me longer to appreciate Rangoon Creeper than the other songs on this album, really enjoy it now. I came to enjoy funk a lot more generally too.

It’s funny, I was just telling Zap that I probably haven’t listened to this album for 35 years but I remember every note

Quality music

I have been enjoying Brand X daily since that PSL.

Of course, Isotope were first. By 2-3 years.

They have affinities. Isotope are more into solos, Brand X veer more in the direction of ensemble work.

Who knows which musician played with both bands?

Zap and I were discussing the funk element - a track of two halves

The only Isotope album Hugh Hopper plays on all tracks.

Fabulous bass.

Yes, Gary was a close friend of Johnny Mc and a disciple


This track is very MO

I am hearing LOTS of Brand X. They were also influenced by Mahav Orchs.

It all depends how your ears are oriented, of course.

Zap says: there are lot of complex textures going on

The lad’s correct

Hugh of course was a great bassist

And Nigel’s tubs…?
