Greenslade was originally formed late 1972 by Dave Greenslade and Tony Reeves, who both had played in Colosseum, together with Dave Lawson (keyboards) and Andy McCulloch (drums). They made two critically well recieved albums Greenslade and Bedside Manners Are Extra in 1973. In 1974 the third album Spyglass Guest made the album Top 40 in the UK. The fourth Time And Tide the following year became their swan song. The band split in 1975, but started working again in 1999. In November 2000 the band has the line up featured in the pictures above. The new album was released in October 2000 and bodes well for the future. You can now read my review of Large Afternoon.

You can check some of Tony Reeves' other work here.

Greenslade albums (3) are available directly from Mystic Records.

Greenslade can be contacted through their management Rhino Agency at 66 Babbacombe Road, Bromley, Kent BR1 3LW, UK. email: Don@rhinoagency.freeserve.co.uk
