Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
3 stars After the relatively funky/disco-ish album called The Dancer (its name sort of gave it away, didn't it), Gary Boyle came back the following year with a much more consistent (and convincing) Electric Glide, with a very impressive line-up, including drummer Simon Phillips, guitarist Gary Moore (then still in Colosseum II), bassist John Gibblin (Danny Thompson's replacement with John Martyn) and for two acoustic track guitarist Kenny Shaw.

Indeed, while there are still traces of funk, this album is definitely not as 'sheik-yer-bouty' as its predecessor and much more serious, almost flirting with the 'standard' jazz. Sooo, don't go expecting something close to Isotope material, despite Moore's presence on three tracks. Actually, the album seems divided in three sessions, one having Boyle & Shaw on acoustic guitars (looking at Paco's or Django's directions) for two tracks, the second featuring the all- star Moore, Phillips & Gibblin line-up for 3.5 tracks and the third session varying from a trio to a sextet, for the rest of the album. We're dealing with a guitar-dominated fusion as the only keyboards (courtesy of Jacobson) are only present in two tracks.

Just like Isotope's short career was not really essential or indispensable to the JR/F foundations, neither Dancer, nor Glide are essential fusion albums, but nice consolidating blocks, but let's just say that it's absolutely nothing groundbreaking or even adventurous. But in its own way, this kind of album is likely to please progheads more than Abercrombie or Scofield.
