Liner Notes

Bill Bruford: The Winterfold Collection 1978-1986

Read "Bill Bruford: The Winterfold Collection 1978-1986" reviewed by John Kelman

It's often easy to judge artists based on where they are now, but when you have a recorded legacy as rich as that of Bill Bruford, it's far better to view the body of work as a whole. As divergent as the intrepid percussionist/composer/bandleader's career has been, there are common threads running through all his work, making the earlier, electrified and amplified material on this Winterfold Collection fit contextually as a logical antecedent to his more recent unplugged and improvisation-centric ...

Bruford: Seems Like a Lifetime Ago 1977 - 1980

Read "Seems Like a Lifetime Ago 1977 - 1980" reviewed by John Kelman

With the plethora of box sets being issued these days with new masters and, perhaps even more importantly, new mixes of classic recordings, it was inevitable that the small but significant discography of drummer Bill Bruford's first steps into a solo career with his band Bruford should finally get the deluxe treatment. Seems Like a Lifetime Ago 1977-1980 not only covers the three studio and one live recording that this at-the-time completely unexpected and utterly distinctive surprise of a group ...

Dave Stewart & Barbara Gaskin: The TLG Collection

Read "The TLG Collection" reviewed by John Kelman

With momentum building in recent times for once progster, now popster Dave Stewart and longtime partner, vocalist Barbara Gaskin, it only makes sense to keep it going. With reissues of the groundbreaking keyboardist's work with Canterbury faves Hatfield and the North and National Health, archival live and radio recordings from Hatfield and the earlier, no less seminal Egg, not to mention a new CD and EP from Stewart & Gaskin--Green and Blue and Hour Moon, both released in 2009 on ...

Uriel and Egg: The Road to Hatfield and Beyond

Read "Uriel and Egg: The Road to Hatfield and Beyond" reviewed by John Kelman

In the chronicles of progressive rock history, the British Canterbury scene has been largely defined by such groups as Caravan, Gong, Hatfield And The North, National Health and Soft Machine. But Uriel and its successor, Egg, have long been considered seminal precursors. Both featured future Hatfield keyboardist Dave Stewart, bassist/vocalist Mont Campbell and drummer Clive Brooks, while guitarist Steve Hillage-- who would go on to a successful career with both Gong and his own projects--fleshed Uriel out to a four-piece. ...

Bruford: Rock Goes to College

Read "Rock Goes to College" reviewed by John Kelman

The DVD release of Rock Goes to College (Winterfold, 2006), by drummer Bill Bruford's late-1970s band Bruford, was greeted with considerable excitement. Featuring Hatfield and the North/National Health keyboardist Dave Stewart and über-bassist Jeff Berlin, the group only played a couple of live dates with original guitarist Allan Holdsworth, who left shortly afterwards and was replaced by “The Unknown John Clarke. One of those performances was recorded by the BBC for television broadcast and, while it's a scant 42-minutes long, ...
