In the pantheon of rare Folk Rock albums from the genre’s golden era of the early Seventies, FLY ON STRANGEWINGS by Jade is a bona fide classic. Largely ignored on its release on DJM in 1970, the album is now widely acclaimed, which has led collectors and connoisseurs to consider Jade’s main singer and songwriter, Marian Segal, as a much-overlooked talent.

FLY ON STRANGEWINGS is now treated to a deluxe 3-CD edition which finally tells the full story of Marian Segal’s musical career. Compiled and annotated with Marian’s involvement, this new package offers a second disc of early recordings of Marian with fellow Jade member Dave Waite, while Disc Three brings the story more up-to-date with solo and Marian Segal Band recordings.

Disc One re-presents the classic Fly On Strangewings album with seven contemporaneous bonus tracks, two of which are previously unissued.

Before becoming Jade, Dave Waite and Marian (or Marianne) Segal were a duo, playing the university circuit and in London clubs at the height of the Swinging London era. Their music was a fusion of British and American folk, but already contained many original elements, including superlative vocals, in the vein of Sandy Denny and The Strawbs. This period is remembered on Disc Two, recordings which have been out of print for a decade. Four tracks are previously unissued.

Disc Three includes two historic mid-70s recordings with Jeff Wayne (of War of The Worlds fame).

The albums include a host of session talent from the 1970s including Dave Mattacks, Herbie Flowers, Clem Cattini, Pete Sears, John Wetton, Chris Spedding and Terry Cox as well as sweeping string arrangements by Phil Dennys (Rodriguez).
