As you might expect, Dave has done just about everything on the album - he wrote the music, did all of the arrangements, plays all of the instruments. Also, as you'd expect, there are no lyrics to get in the way. There are times when he almost slips into "easy listening", and the album is not terribly long (45 minutes), but in general this is good stuff, with the highlight for me the closing track which is Dave at his best - a kind of quirky tune containing some very fine piano work!

Rock | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Virgin | CDV 2738 | 310Mb

This CD has some very impressive tracks - and the use of quotes from the book read by Tony Robinson and Stephen Briggs are very effective in creating a Discworld-like atmosphere full of "Narrativium", (see The Science of Discworld). Greenslade's obvious talent shines throughout and the vocals by Tim Whitnall, (from CITV's "Mike and Angelo", and CBBC's "Telletubbies"), are combined in my favourite track - "A Wizards Staff Has A Knob on The End". Just under an hours worth of music makes this CD a must for all Discworld fans. (amazon)

A congenial semi-concept album about the colonization of the American West, displaying a relaxed sense of humor. Greenslade's direction here is somewhat away from his prog-rock roots and more toward the gentler territory that was being charted by such performers as Vangelis and Mike Oldfield. (allmusic)

This is very plainly a record made for the love of music alone. An exercise in deft tinkling of the ivories that covers a wide range of musical styles from robust pseudo-classical through to light jazz and on to airy instrumental pop-rock, there is plenty here that reaffirms Greenslade's compositional and technical abilities.

Conceived, written and illustrated by fantasy artist and writer Patrick Woodroffe, The Pentateuch was his first fully-fledged art-book combined with Dave Greenslade's second solo album, released at a time when the punk revolution had revised the outlook of many former Prog musicians!

The last album from the original Greenslade does indeed feel like a lightweight afterthought, but this lends it a charming and unique lack of conceit. Animal Farm, Newsworth, The Flattery Stakes and The Ass's Ears are ridiculously catchy and memorable keyboard-driven pop/rock songs, and the rest of the record is never less than intriguing. Dave Lawson's lyrics are intelligent and concise, though putting the boot into the music press can't have helped their profile! An unpretentious and thoroughly enjoyable listen. (amazon)

British prog-rock underdogs Greenslade reached their peak with their third album, SPYGLASS GUEST. While the dueling keyboards of Dave Greenslade and Dave Lawson still lead the charge, it's the first Greenslade album to feature guitar (Dave"Clem" Clempson of Humble Pie), and it's probably the band's most visceral effort. Their trademark balance between arty, fleet-fingered keyboard antics and grittier, more light-hearted tunes is refined here to the point of perfection, making this a lost prog classic.

Bedside Manners Are Extra is the second studio album of the British progressive rock band Greenslade, released in 1973 on Warner Bros. Records. Aside from a few minor differences, 1973's Bedside Manners Are Extra is equivalent to Greenslade's debut album, inundated with the same dazzling synthesizer work and atmospheric guitar implementations from Tony Reeves. Andrew McCulloch's drumming is a little more effective the whole album through, balancing out Dave Greenslade's keyboards and Dave Lawson's singing. The songs alternate from vocal to instrumental, beginning with the beautifully lush title track that exploits the ease in which Greenslade…

Greenslade is an English progressive rock band. It was originally formed in the autumn of 1972. Longtime musical associates, with a common background in jazz, Greenslade and Reeves had been original members of Colosseum. Lawson was previously a member of the Alan Bown Set, Web and Samurai, whilst McCulloch was briefly a member of King Crimson, playing drums on that band's third album, Lizard (1970), and Fields, the band formed by ex-Rare Bird keyboardist Graham Field. Dave Clempson (ex Humble Pie) guested on Greenslade's third album, playing guitar on two tracks. Reeves left around that time and was replaced on the U.S. tour and subsequent fourth album, Time And Tide, by Martin Briley who also contributed on guitar. Greenslade is an eponymous album of seven songs from the British progressive rock band Greenslade, released in 1972, and their first studio album. The artwork for the album cover is by Roger Dean.

Dave Greenslade (keys) and Tony Reeves (bass) formed Greenslade in 1972. The two had previously played together in Colosseum and they recruited Dave Lawson (Episode Six) as vocalist. For a drummer the group added Andrew McCulloch (King Crimson, Crazy World of Arthur Brown) and their self-titled album was released the following year. A considerably prolific band, they released two more albums in 1973, the first of which was Bedside Manners Are Extra.
