More information: Formed in September 1972 in the wake of Colosseum’s split by ex-members keyboard player Dave Greenslade and bassist Tony Reeves, with keyboardist Dave Lawson and drummer Andrew McCulloch, Greenslade made their live debut at Frankfurt's Zoom Club in November 1972.

In January 1973 Greenslade recorded their first BBC session for Bob Harris’s Sounds Of The 70s and their TV debut followed a few weeks later, on BBC’s The Old Grey Whistle Test. Later BBC sessions included two In Concert in April 1973 and November 1974.

The caliber of Greenslade’s members ensured that the group would be innovative, groundbreaking and dynamic in their musical approach, and would also be notable due to the absence of a guitarist within their ranks. Originally issued in February 1973, Greenslade was a fine debut album and featured such future classic compositions as 'Feathered Friends', 'Melange', 'Drowning Man' and 'Sundance'. Considered by many to be at their finest on stage, this release is a great opportunity to trace the band’s evolution through the BBC’s airwaves.

The tracks on this album showcase Greenslade's ability to blend complex compositions with a touch of improvisation, creating a unique listening experience for fans old and new. From energetic rock anthems to soulful ballads, each song highlights the band's versatility and creativity.

24-page booklet with an interview of Dave Greenslade and liner notes by Chris Welch. Approx. 120 mins of music, 20 tracks, fully remastered.
