...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

YES: Greg Lake And Geoff Downes Ride The Tiger Album Officially Released

(Glass Onyon) A previously unreleased album by Greg Lake & Geoff Downes titled "Ride The Tiger" has finally seen the light of day with the effort's official release. We were sent the following details:

"Ride the Tiger" contains six songs which the duo wrote together - one went on to became an Asia song and two became ELP songs. Four of these tracks had been released on compilations before, but this is the first time they have been collected together with two previously unreleased tracks plus one alternate mix.

Greg Lake had this to say, "To be honest I thought that these recordings had simply disappeared off the radar until one of my management team, Daniel Earnshaw, reminded me of their existence. My initial reaction was not entirely positive as I generally view many of these re-releases to be a bit tiresome, however, upon hearing these recordings again I immediately identified their value, both in terms of song writing and of musicianship and production. Geoff, of course, is a masterful musician with an instinctive ability to maximise the potential of any song both as a player and as an arranger. His contribution to these recordings is clear for all to see and for me it was a real pleasure to reflect upon our friendship together both personally and as musicians."
