Isn't The View from Here RH's second album ... albeit with a significantly different line-up? I vaguely remember seeing both line-ups supporting Peter Gabriel and OMD respectively.

Lake of Dracula
Spahn Ranch

Some folkies almost managed this feat, but then recorded something 20 or 30 years later (Simon Finn, Vashti Bunyan, Gary Higgins).
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Much more complicated than that

The View From Here was the UK version of the first (released with songs from an earlier EP added and others omitted as Etceteraville in the US) from 1980 - my introduction to the band and a fantastic album. A double album ("Avalanche") collecting all tracks was released in 1981. A 2001 2CD reissue of "Avalanche" by Voiceprint (confusingly named "The View From Here) added eight live tracks from their 1980 US tour supporting Peter Gabriel, who is heard introducing them. The line-up was David Rhodes (g), Bill McCormick (b), David Ferguson (keyb) and Pete Phipps (dr), vocals were attributed to "Random Hold" and I believed at the time that this stood for producer Peter Hammill who had to use a pseudonym for contractual reasons, but it probably simply meant "shared vocal duties". :roll:

A second album (Burn The Buildings) followed in 1982, with Martyn Swann and Steve Wilkin replacing Rhodes and McCormick. The tracks can be found on other Voiceprint releases, but I've never heard them.

I've been thinking about this Chris and you are absolutely correct

Quatermass and Qiuatermass II carry different nomenclature so are two distinct bands.

Ditto With CSN and CSN&Y - Deja Vu being the latter's debut album.

I admire the change in name rather than trying to cash in on the original name.

Good on Colosseum II

Shame on Renaissance and King Crimson [aka Illusion and Discipline]

Random Hold were signed to Polydor, a couple of singles, then the album A View From Here was released.

They then supported Gabriel.

They fell apart after touring America.

Rhodes decamped to join Gabriel's touring band, MacCormack moved into politics, the SDP.

The name was reactivated by Ferguson with a female singer. Sounded nothing like the previous line up.

Main singer was David Rhodes not Hammil.

Not counting the one 50 odd years later by what was essentially a different band.

Similarly Mad Season's Above. I think it's a very strong album with a handful of excellent tracks.
