…even in this rarest of phenomenon, Greenslade remain a unique proposition 40 years on.

DME Music Site (September 2011)


The classically inspired ‘Joie De Vivre’ is one of their more optimistic pieces, encompassing varying changes of mood and tempo and sounding clear and crisp throughout. Given the age of the source material the quality here is very good with each instrument being much defined.

Sea Of Tranquility (September 2011)


Greenslade’s unusual no-guitar-but-two-lots-of-keyboards line-up is heard in great form across a running time of of just over an hour…The music recalls the unit’s powerful combination, made up of keyboards alchemist Dave Greenslade and bassist Tony Reeves (they’d been together in Colosseum), Dave Lawson (vocals and additional keyboards, previously with the Alan Bown Set), and Andrew McCulloch (drums, latterly with King Crimson)

The Beat (September 2011)


…the quality of this live recording is very good, bearing in mind we’re talking live recordings from the mid-70s here! Not just a must for Greenslade fans but everyone who calls themselves prog-rock fans!

This CD provides an introduction to the band as a whole, providing a selection of superb Mellotron keyboard sequences alongside stretches of brilliant Minimoog progressions. New prog fans will find Greenslade a tight band, musically, without the often debilitating self indulgence yet offering a series of multifaceted ideas that blend into often intricate conglomerates of ideas that stand repeated listening.
