Review by Tom Ozric
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Volume 4 of the 'Long Hello' series has always been my favourite. What Guy Evans does here with his drumming and various percussion is very interesting. Starring some members of Mother Gong's alumni, we have an amazing array of experimental pieces, sometimes jazzy and sometimes spacey. Too many tunes here for track-by-track breakdown, but highlights are : 'Der Traum von Julius' - a strange piece full of mysterious tones, courtesy of Mr Jaxon's sax playing, 'Martha's Express Wishes' - complete with fast paced drumming and nice bass-playing, 'The Finger Points' - a whimsical percussive arrangement with amusing guitaring and 'Haben Sie Waffen Oder Funk Dabei ?' - which reprises Martha's E.W. but this time around with Glissando guitar. Never a dull moment on this record, and whilst sounding different from Van Der Graaf Generator, the ghost of that spirit is still to be found here.

1 stars Haben sie melodien dabei?

The fourth The Long Hello album is the final one, and is yet again very different in nature from the previous ones in being more of a Jazz album than a Rock album. The album is credited to Guy Evans with Life of Riley & David Jackson. I do not know who (or what) Life of Riley is, but Volume Four is basically a Guy Evans solo project. Given that a drummer is the leader, the music is naturally very percussive. A lot of rhythms, but not much melody. This makes the music forgettable for me, and Volume Four is indeed the least good of the four Long Hello albums. It is even hard to sit through this album.
