GREENSLADE Going South Angel Air SJPCD168 (2004)
With all the Greenslade activity right now, with both his reformed eponymous
band and Colosseum, now’s as good a time as any to look at some of Dave’s
This album, recorded by Dave Greenslade alone, was released originally in
1999 and is inspired by migrating birds, hence the title. It is therefore
largely atmospheric, bordering on ambient, and is a far cry from his better
known (in fact, just better) band work.
Based largely on Dave’s keyboard work, there’s also some acoustic guitar and
some interesting rhythms. But there is little to pick up the soul. ‘Flying
V’ features some Colin Towns style keyboards, and ‘Crane Dance’ is the only
other track to stand out. A great album, or poor, depending on your state of
mind, but really for fans only.
