Greg Sneddon biography
Born 1954-01-25 (Melbourne, Australia)

Australian composer and instrumentalist Greg SNEDDON is a man of which not much is known today, but he has written himself into Australian history books due to one particular event: He assembled a group of backing musicians while he was recording the soundtrack of a musical called "Riff Raff", and following these recording sessions this group of musicians would later eastablish a solid career as Men At Work.

Prior to that Sneddon released a single solo album however. "Mind Stroll" was recorded in 1974 and released in 1975. A nice and varied example of keyboard driven, accessible symphonic rock, by some described as similar in style to Australian band Sebastian Hardie.

3 stars Greg Sneddon is a totaly unknown musician from mid '70's from Australia. He released one album in 1975 issued at Mushroom records and then disappered into shadow. The album named Mind stroll is a great melodic progressive rock not far in aproach like his country fellows done in that time Sebastia Hardie. Full of synth and mellotron passages , piano arrangements and a great voice from Dayle Alison makes from this album a pleasure to listen. The perfect example of greatness is the title track, nearly 10 min of beauty haunting piano and excellent musicianship, the best from here for sure. Gentle arrangements melted with those who are more uptempo in a great unit. So, a forgotten album, that had a japanese bootleg re issue Poor House I guess is the name of the label, but with a harsh recording status. Anyway is a truly great album that must pe praised more, ok is nothing really over the top here , nothing is groundbreaking but is pleasent most of the time. Great guitars interluded with piano, all musicians done a good job for sure. Well from me 3.5 stars, I got the vinyl accidentaly, looking for totaly diffrent band in a store in first place, and among the vinyls was this one, the seller said is ok but nothing to talk about, so I grab it without hesitation knowing that on internet the vinyl is quite expensive, I got it almost for free, anyway cheap as hell. Fans of prog must take some spins, worth it, at some point the album remind me of some parts from Yes or Greenslade. Greg Sneedon had a brief staying in australian band Men at work and aswell drummer Jerry H. Speiser joyned the band remaining few good years.

Review by sl75

4 stars A keyboard driven album, to me very reminiscent of Wakeman's early solo work. The two dominant elements to me are, on the one hand, a strong commercial soft-rock/pop edge, particularly to the fore on the ballad "Take It Slow And Easy", and the main themes of the title track, and "Concerto For Two Handed Plectrum"; on the other hand, busy keyboard solos (sometimes approaching Emerson territory, eg "A Spell of Destruction" and "Concerto"), and 'classical' flourishes (eg the main theme of 'Minuet in E", "Winter", the secondary theme of the title track). Layers of keyboards dominate the sound, with much use of the most voguish synth sounds of the day. Sneddon shares lead vocal duties with Dayle Alison, who has a lovely voice. Not a prog masterpiece, but a very interesting record, one that stands out among the minimal output of the symphonic or symphonic-influenced bands found in Australia during the 1970s
Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
