LP - Terry Reid - The Other Side Of The River 2xLP
British musician TERRY REID is a relatively unsung legend. With his incredible voice (that earned him the nickname “Superlungs”), spot-on songwriting, and underrated guitar skills, Reid invented new sounds and others followed suit. His 1973 LP, River, is an under-the-radar but deeply loved album. This special new release, The Other Side Of The River, features all previously unreleased material from the River sessions, including six never-before-heard Reid compositions and five very different alternate takes of tracks from River. Over the decades, as River went in and out of print, there were rumors of a mythological double album’s worth of unreleased material. The rumors turned out to be true, as the entire album was recorded twice: once with British producer EDDY OFFORD and again with the legendary TOM DOWD. The sessions captured Reid’s free-associative mix of folk, blues, rock, jazz, bossa-nova, soul, and samba, recalling at times Tim Buckley and Van Morrison, while featuring some remarkable guests including GILBERTO GIL on percussion, Ike & Tina Turner’s IKETTES on vocals, and DAVID LINDLEY of psych band KALEIDOSCOPE, on violin. The Other Side Of The River includes songs that even Terry had forgotten—rockers in the style of the River track “Dean,” Latin grooves with percussionist WILLIE BOBO and beautifully sparse vocal material not unlike David Crosby’s If Only I Could Remember My Name and John Martyn’s Solid Air.
