Highlights include ‘Cakewalk’, very keyboard driven and not unlike Camel; ‘Feathered Friends’, an up-tempo blues meets jazz workout and the exceptional vocal talents of John Young…Interesting listen – very laid back sound, with plenty of musical variety mixing jazz, blues, AOR and progressive music well.(****)

It was a splendid evening that took many of the audience back to a time when ‘music was music’…

…There’s more prog-minded magic in store this month, as Greenslade bounce back from almost 30 years in exile, with Live 2001 – The Full Edition (Angel Air). Recorded on February 10 2001, when Greenslade appeared at a Classic Rock Society gig in Rotherham, England, the album reunites founder Dave Greenslade with just one former colleague, bassist Tony Reeves. But with sterling performances from new vocalist John Young and drummer John Trotter, Live 2001 captures the band’s entire set that night – 12 songs that recall some of the original group’s best loved numbers, at the same time as looking forward with a handful of fresh compositions carved exquisitely in traditional Greenslade form. A new Greenslade album is apparently in the works – if Live 2001 is anything to judge by, it should be a winner.

…Tracks are taken from throughout the band’s career…there is definitely an audience of proggers that will want this CD
