You will be taken, everyone, you ladies and you gentlemen. Fall and listen with your ears upon the paving stone. Is that what you hear? Sea flows under your doors in london town. And all your defences are all broken down. You laugh at me on funny days, but mine's the slight of hand. Don't you know I am a joker, a deceiver? And I'm waiting for the land. Originally known as "", The Clouds were a prog rock outfit who came down from Scotland in to secure a recording deal.
Capable musicians live - Billie Ritchie on keyboards and Ian Ellis on guitar in particular - they had limited commercial success. In the end this track only made it in vinyl onto "Up Above Our Heads", which did not get a UK-release - a shame because it is a great period piece. NB: Kevin McClure tells me by email that a CD compilation called "Up Above Our Heads" brings together all Clouds recorded output from untilincluding the tracks from the original album; and James Alexander has corrected some of the lyrics for us.

The stable of acts that were signed up to Island Records and appeared on Bumpers, and their producers, have had a largely successful, often colourful and sometimes tragic history since Traffic went on to record the excellent "Low Spark of the High Heeled Boys" but in they disbanded. Thirty years later, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Steve Winwood went on to record with a wide range of artists before going solo inachieving commercial success with hits such "While You See a Chance", "Valerie," and "Higher Love". He reunited with the late Jim Capaldi who died of cancer in for Traffic 's release, "Far From Home", and the resulting tour. Rick Grech, who had played for Family and Blind Faith rejoined Winwood in Traffic for "Low Spark" and "Welcome to the Canteen", subsequently retiring from the music business to become a carpet salesman in Leicester.
After a life characterised by brilliant bass work, drug-fuelled unreliability and ultimately a drinking problem, he died from kidney failure in aged Dave Mason brought out probably his best solo work, "Alone Together" in Subsequently he rejoined Traffic, but left again and continues to pursue what has largely been a solo career ever since.

The first incarnation of If produced a number of well regarded albums If2, If Drummer Dennis Elliot went on to join Foreigner. Renaissance fell out after their first album and the members had all gone their separate ways before a new and ultimately more commercially successful lineup formed incomprising bassist Jon Camp, keyboard player John Tout, Terry Sullivan on drums and Annie Haslam on vocals.
A second album, Illusion, by the original lineup was also released in Keith Relf died, electrocuted whilst practising guitar at home. Jethro Tull are still touring and recording with Ian Anderson still at the helm, although their best work came in the two albums subsequent to "Benefit", "Aqualung" and "Thick as a Brick".
Jimmy Cliff continued to have a successful career without ever hitting the peaks he sought with a worldwide audience. Frustrated by Island Records ability to promote him effectively he left the label, just as Bob Marley arrived at Island to begin a meteoric career built on Chris Blackwell's intimate knowledge of both reggae and rock.
King Crimson is still going strong, its numerous personnel changes including many distinguished musicians who have gravitated around Robert Loves Been Known - Various - The Sampler (Vinyl, the only consistent member of the band over four decades. John Martyn had a distinguished career as a solo artist, leaving Island some ten years after Bumpers - shortly after his split from his wife, Beverley.
One of his most famous songs, "Solid Air" was dedicated to his doomed friend, Nick Drake. He lived a life on the edge, drinking and taking drugs heavily, losing a leg, gaining an OBE I remember him playing live at York University's Central Hall in the s and nonchalantly taking a joint off a member of the audience.
The guy was one of a kind. Nick Drake wrote three astonishing albums without ever achieving critical success, partly due to his dislike of live appearances and increasing mental instability, possibly fuelled by heavy cannabis use. Following a five week stay in a pyschiatric hospital he spent nearly two years of seclusion at his parents home in the idyllic village of Tanworth-On-Arden in Warwickshire, dying of an accidental overdose of pills in Novemberaged Chris Blackwell's determination to never allow Drake's music to be deleted, even after he sold Island Records, Loves Been Known - Various - The Sampler (Vinyl Joe Boyd's peerless production meant Drake's music never faded away like that of many other talented artists.

As always with GoD releases, the leaflet is packed up with information both in German and in English in a very user-friendly fashion.
I'm naturally basing my review on those band introductions. Here's a track from their intended second album that remained unpublished for nearly four decades. It's energetic, jazzy prog-rock starring Hammond and electric guitar. XHOL played psychedelic jazz-rock. The GoD release represented here with a frenzy minute instrumental is a live album "Essen ". Sounds very nice!
Lyrics are in English and there's a lot of flute to increase a certain [pre-Aqualung] Jethro Tull flavour. The chosen fast-paced track is starring oboe. The next two bands are the best known. The sound quality is not very good, and to me this is the sampler's weakest link.
At least the 9-minute, lighthearted instrumental 'Dance of Some Broken Glasses' sounds nice with the cool groove and flutes, but there's not much of progression in the composition. The original LP of copies is worth a small fortune. As usual the quality of the material is good to excellent, and for those with an interest or passion for vintage style psychedelic rock it'll be quite the pleasant experience indeed. As LP) are presented in these cover versions at least: I haven't checked with the originals to hear just how much these reinterpretations are different from the originals.
In my view there's one cut here that stands a head and a shoulder above the rest though, namely Vibravoid's take on Pink Floyd's classic Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun. A firmly retro-oriented take on this track, with a plethora of odd and eerie sounds, but with a firmer and more concise delivery that adds a tension and hardness to this track that manage to elevate the LP) cosmic nature of the song and a highly appealing manner.
If you have an interest in psychedelic rock, be it progressive or not, this is a fine collection of material of classic tracks and forgotten jewels from yesteryear as explored and performed by contemporary artists. Those with an interest for material of this kind should not be disappointed by the material presented here.
The album has a strong opener from Big big train, but never really let's go other than that track 4. The song from Bellerophon is probably the first to surface, as there are many mood changes, which make you wonder if you're listening to the same band throughout. The flow continues thereafter, with some strong music, and the excellent vocalist from 'This winter machine' comes to the fore, sounding like Patrick Lundstrom from Ritual.
I found this to be a good album, and very likeable. Amazingly, I bought two albums as a result of songs being on this album, namely albums by Gandalf's fist and Lyrian. Thankfully, both albums ended up being good, so the desired result was achieved.
There's also a track from Bellerophon, who appear again, and make their presence felt on a later Prog magazine demo, P50 'Tales of the future'. Copyright Prog Archives, All rights reserved.
