Arriving from Esoteric Recordings is a 2-CD expanded edition of Greenslade’s 1975 effort, Time and Tide, that’s been remastered from the original master tapes. Formed in 1972 by former Colosseum keyboardist Dave Greenslade, the notably guitar-free prog group also included former Web and Samurai member Dave Lawson on keys and vocals, Martin Briley on bass, and former King Crimson cohort Andrew McCulloch on drums. With such titles as “Flattery Stakes,” “Waltz for a Fallen Idol,” “Newsworth,” the album displayed the group’s dynamic and innovative style. Esoteric has also included a rare, previously unreleased radio broadcast with their new version. The sixty-minute concert was recorded for Swedish radio in Stockholm in March 1975. It’s also been remastered from the original master tapes and promises to be a compelling look at the short-lived line-up onstage. In addition, the new remaster includes an annotated booklet with an essay by Malcolm Dome and interviews with Dave Greenslade and Dave Lawson.
Available February 22 in the U.K., March 1 in the U.S.
