SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
4 stars The lost album myth rises again and it will keep coming back if the quality is such - This reminds me of the context and the quality of the Lost Trident Session of Mahavishnu with the perspective that this last band was much more groundbreaking . I just wish this had been released at the times , because it would've gathered more of my attention. not surprisingly, this is the B X album that is spinning most often in my HI-FI.

4 stars This album is a collection of recordings made in the BBC studios before any Brand X albums were recorded. It shows the band in the process, almost complete, of coming up with their unique brand of fusion, featuring tight, fast playing and exciting compositions.

The songs show many of the themes and melodies that would come to comprise some of the songs on the first few albums. The sound quality isn't quite as good as their official studio albums, but it is still very good.

While I would recommend most of the albums that do not have Phil Collins the singer on them (Phil Collins the exceptional drummer is a different story) before this one, it is still a nice album by one of the premier fusion bands.

And anything with Percy Jones get an extra star from me.

3 stars The missing period before developing the tunes to 5 star quality. This recording released in 1997 is actually a collection of tunes from 1975 and onwards. Undeveloped pieces that later appeared on BRAND X's first albums in much better interpretations. To the point that respected Jazz magazine ... (read more)

2 stars Recordings like this are somewhat interesting but they hardly represent the essential work of these artists. It's interesting to hear Phil Collins when he still lived in "players" culture but the music pales in comparison to the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, Zappa, or any of the other v ...

4 stars The first 5 tracks are the complete BBC sessions, re-named for some reason. Tracks 1, 2 and 3 were recorded at the BBC in February 1976, with Goodsall, Lumley, Jones and Collins in attendance. Tracks 4 and 5 were recorded at the BBC in July 1976, with the same band, plus Preston Hayman on ... (read more)
