What can you say about BRAND X?
Probably THE most criminally under-rated Jazz-Rock / Fusion band in the world?
Purveyors of crackling solos, tunes and energy?
Writers of some of the best song-titles ever?
However you rate them, there’s one thing you can say – their back catalogue has languished in the land of hastily released off-the-vinyl masters for far too long. Well, sob into your pint no more, because they’re back, sounding fresher than a very fresh thing!
All THE ALBUMS the band recorded for Charisma / Virgin Records are here in one package, complete with 3 Previously Unreleased Session Tracks (recorded for the BBC apparently) all Remastered from the Original Tapes.
The BRAND X output, that featured (amongst others) Phil Collins, John Goodsall, John Giblin, Morris Pert, Percy Jones and Robin Lumley, has never had a upgrade on the catalogue, and having all the albums (‘Unorthodox Behaviour’, ‘Moroccan Roll’, ‘Masques’, ‘Product’, ‘Do They Hurt’ and ‘Livestock’) on one 4CD Set is fantastic, especially considering that this is the first time in a number of years they have been available.
