Greenslade's innovative, groundbreaking and dynamic performances captured by the BBC on two discs. Featuring all of Greenslade's BBC sessions, recorded between 1973 and 1974. Includes two In Concert performances recorded a year apart, offering a glimpse of the excellence of the band in a live environment. 24-page booklet with an interview of Dave Greenslade and liner notes by Chris Welch Approx 120 mins of music, 20 tracks, fully remastered. 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 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. In 2000, Greenslade and Reeves, teamed up with vocalist/keyboardist John Young, and recorded a new Greenslade studio album: Large Afternoon. Drummer John Trotter joined in time for a subsequent tour, during which the live album Greenslade 2001 - Live: The Full Edition was recorded.
