Prog Reviewer
4 stars Jade Warrior is one of the least known British prog bands of the 1970s. Although I started listening to prog in 1975, I never knew about their existence until I read Edward Macan's Rocking the Classics, and I never even heard their music until I managed to buy this set in 2001.

Elements contains four complete albums, all of which I have reviewed separately for Prog Archives. All these albums consist of subtle instrumental prog, mainly acoustic (although Tony Duhig plays a mean electric guitar) but full of surprises, and never sentimental. This music will appeal to anyone who likes early Mike Oldfield (without the cheese, and without the endless repetitions) or the American band Oregon at their most inspired. A true bargain - grab it while you can!
