Coming to you this month Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a newly re- mastered and expanded 2 CD edition of the classic 1975 album, Time & Tide by GREENSLADE, out on the 22nd February.
Formed in 1972 by former Colosseum keyboard player Dave Greenslade, the band also featured former Web and Samurai member Dave Lawson (keyboards, vocals), former Colosseum bass player Tony Reeves and drummer Andrew McCulloch (formerly with King Crimson and Fields). The calibre of the members of Greenslade ensured that the group would be innovative, ground breaking and dynamic in their musical approach and would also be notable due to the absence of a guitarist within their ranks. Following the release of the album Spyglass Guest, Tony Reeves departed the band and was replaced by Martin Briley, who was to feature on the band’s next album. Originally issued in May 1975, Time and Tide was the band’s final album of the 1970s and was a fine record that featured such compositions as ‘Flattery Stakes’, ‘Waltz for a Fallen Idol’, ‘Newsworth’ and ‘The Ass’s Ears’.
Considered by many to be a band at their finest on stage, this expanded edition of Time and Tide includes a bonus CD featuring a superb sixty-minute concert recorded for Swedish Radio in March 1975 in Stockholm, re-mastered from the original Swedish Radio master tapes, offering a glimpse of the excellence of this short-lived line-up of band in a live environment and released officially for the very first time. This Esoteric Recordings expanded edition has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an illustrated booklet and includes an essay by Malcolm Dome and exclusive interviews with Dave Greenslade and Dave Lawson.
