I'm wondering if there are any Greenslade fans here? If so, I would love to hear favorite songs/albums.
I got into them after finding out the former Crimson drummer Andrew McCullough had played in this band (I loved his work on Lizard). What an interesting and talented group I found them to be. 2 great keyboard players, no guitars (first 2 albums), an underrated bass player, and the drummer could have had quite a career as well. They kind of slipped into the prog scene a bit under the radar best I can tell. Maybe the singing wasn't their strong point and made them a little less approachable, but to me it kinda worked. Besides, their instrumental work was top notch much of the time, with kind of a bluesy feel at times.
I'd say overall my favorite album is Spyglass Guest. All but one song works for me on that one and it also has Joie de Vivre which might my favorite song of theirs. So many great moments over their first 4 albums, not to mention how much Mellotron was all over their music!
Anyone else into them?
