4 stars This CD was released by Transatlantic Records in 1997 as part of their "Two Albums on One CD" releases, and contains the entire contents of two GRYPHON LPs "Red Queen To Gryphon Three" and "Raindance". For my detailed opinion of the music see my reviews of those two albums.

I rate this 2-LP CD as a 4-star release (Excellent addition to any Prog Rock collection). There's really no excuse not to have it, with over 80 minutes of good music in GRYPHON's inimitable style (Progrssive Rock with medieval and folk influences).

5 stars If you like folk prog with influences from Early Music and seldom heard instruments like bassoon, recorder and krumhorn, you ought to know Gryphon already, but if you don't have their music yet, buying this mid-price twin edition is the best move. The sheet includes also brief history and photos of the band. Hey, they have toured with YES!

Red Queen to Gryphon Three (1974) is their magnum opus, an instrumental four- piece consept about a chess game. It's a gorgeous, well-crafted composition including both sudden turns and romantic peaceful sections but never missing the focus or being complex only for the heck of it. Instrumentation is lovely, especially the use of reed instruments makes this a special album. Even the most demanding art music connoisseur can value it high.

Raindance (1975) is very uneven, but not to the point that would make it an unwelcome pair here. (Since RQtoG3 is a definite 5-star album, why not grant this with full rate too.) The final number, 16-minute 'Ein Klein Heldenleben' continues the style of RQtoG3, though it's not as good. Before it there are some short tracks that taste badly like fillers. Drummer David Oberlé is a decent low-key singer but the band really wasn't at their best in SONG-writing. (First albums included traditional songs like 'Unquiet Grave' that no doubt are an essential part of Gryphon's charm.) My favourites in Raindance are the instrumental title track, fresh like rain, and the Beatles cover 'Mother Nature's Son'. I even prefer it to McCartney's original on White Album.

4 stars What most amazes me about this band is that I had never heard them until I joined this web site. They are definitely the type of band I would have listened to back in the seventies. But such is the way of music exploration. This way they are fresh to my ears now.

While I enjoy both of the albums on this collection immensely, I find that I enjoy Red Queen To Gryphon Three more of the two. That album is more of a mix of medeival (did I spell that right?) music mixed with modern (1970's) progressive rock. The result is reminiscent of some of Gentle Giant's work in the same era, but with a more renaissance fair (huzzah!) feel to it. Pour me some more mead, and hand me that leg of lamb, wench!

The second half is quite good as well, but it's a more traditional seventies prog rock album. There is still a bit of the early music feel, but it really is only a trace.
