I have just Purchased "The Pentateuch" - a late 70's Collaboration between Dave Greenslade and the Artist Patrick Woodroffe - comes with an excellent booklet - (smaller in CD size of course) - strangely - this was made right at the time when prog was supposed to be dead (1979) - I also bought Greenslade (first) album and their last two before extinction - and Dave went solo.....
Bedside manners I already had - and which I consider to be a masterpiece - the Hammond solo in Drum-folk (after the haunting mellotron) is possibly unique in it's spine-tingling melancholia....
Who's with me on this??
Play me my song.....Here it comes again.......

Bedside Manners Are Extra is an outstanding album in spite of the mediocare vocals by Dave Lawson, I love how diverse Greenslade's sound and playing.
I'm not familiar with the other album you've mentioned but it's definitely not surprising it was recorded in 79'. Although a lot of bands have already veered in a different direction, still I can think of dozens of bands that were playing progressive rock in the most courageous way.

I really like Greenslade,I think Spyglass Guest is my favourite. Always cheers me up.

Before Greenslade Lawson was in a band called The Web, he appeared on their third album. Fantastic album where his vocals are much better and finally suits the music. Very recommended and I would provide you with a utube video but I'm on my phone now and it's kinda complicated, but here's the PA link...
