SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Jadis spent the 80's performing live and releasing demo tapes and by the end of the decade Chandler was surrounded by Les Marshall on guitars, Trevor Dawkins on bass, Mark Law on drums and Pete Salmon on keyboards.In 1989 the band released their self-titled first LP on Back Beat, produced by Marillion's Steve Rothery, consisting of some new tracks and old songs from the previous demos.

Side A shows the more romantic face of Jadis.Sensitive guitar work and vocals by Chandler, beautiful solos, light atmospheric synthesizers and very memorable choruses present a group with true potential.Still through this accesible approach the prog aesthetics are still evident, mainly on some of Salmon's keyboard acrobatics and GENESIS-inspired melodic approach.Side A of the LP is quite good, but the flipside is trully brilliant, opening with one of the Jadis' highlights, the fantastic ''G13'', where Chandler's guitars really shine with some ultra- melodic hooks and incredible solos.''Out Of Reach'' features again Chandler fast and furious solos next to some atmospheric synths and dramatic breaks, very IQ-sounding track of great quality.''Don't Keep Me Waiting'' goes more along the lines of Progressive Pop Rock with light guitars and a memorable chorus, though the atmosphere is really emotional.And talking about emotions the closing ''In The Dark'' must be one of the best Jadis tracks ever.Definitely among Chandler's best vocal performances with superb guitar work in the vein of STEVE ROTHERY and some flashy synths here and there.Absolutely magnificent.

This particular Jadis LP is very rare, fortunately all of these tracks made it either in a Jadis studio album or future compilation, so anyone can taste them.However anyone who owns an original copy of this first ever Jadis release should be really proud not only for its historical value but also for the highly recommended Neo Prog-oriented content.Very good.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Jadis first ever release is kind of a mystery. It´s so rare that few people are even aware of its existence. It´s not cited on several band´s discographies, Its absent even on their official site. It was recorded in 1989 and it seems to be the sum of some recordings at the time and a few songs from older demos. It was produced by Marillion´s guitarist Steve Rothery and had a very different line up from the one we were accustomed to see as their first incarnation (1994´s "debut" More Than Meets The Eye): here only guitarist/singer/songwriter Gary Chandler is present. Even the long time sidekick Stephen Christey was not credited on this record. Here Chandler is backed by Trevor Dawkins on bass, Pete Salmon o keyboards and a couple of drummers: Mark Law on side 1 and Paul Awin on side 2.

What strikes me the most about this album is the excellent songwriting and the overall very good performances. Considering its obscureness I presumed the songs were weak and/or done by an inferior line up. Of course the production is not up to their latter, "official" releases. Still, it was far from some crap sounding albums I have heard at the period. The good news is that no cut is a lost gem, since all the tracks were either re-recorded on future CDs or available on compilations.

In the end is understandable why this LP never got a CD release. It´s just a curio, a collector´s item for the hardcore. The band would produce much better recordings of those songs on future releases even if Chandler´s talents as songwriter and performer were evident by the quality of the the stuff in here. Jadis is one of the great neo prog bands of all time.
