Bedside Manners Are Extra = Papersleeve, Japanese, SHMCD = (CD)
Greenslade were going through an extremely prolific period in 73' and during the summer of the year they entered again the Morgan Studios in London to record the follow up of their debut.The album, entitled ''Bedside manners Are extra'', was released again on Warner Bros and featured the excellent work of Roger Dean regarding its superb artwork. Musically the period between the first and second release was too short for anyone to expect any particular changes in style.However the new work contains light Fusion/Canterbury touches in some instrumental parts of an otherwise very Classic British Prog effort.The music is again focused on refined, elaborate and diverse compositions, heavily driven by the accomplished keyboard duo of Greenslade and Lawson.While not extremely original, the sound swirls around tremendous Hammond organ breaks, huge Mellotron flashes, dreamy Moog synths and smooth electric piano parts with a jazzy edge, however the overall structures remain in a symphonic vein with links to the sound of GENESIS, FRUUPP and early KING CRIMSON.A couple of tracks are led by nice groovy parts and loose instrumental runs with some sort of a COLLOSEUM edge, while there are some really astonishing dual keyboard battles delivered in the album, creating bombastic and furious atmospheres.
