Paul Brett’s Sage
This is the first official re-release of Paul Brett`s Sage first album from 1970 on vinyl under licensed courtesy of BMG Rights Management, UK, remastered from an original master copy out of the vaults of BMG. This first album holds a special place with its solid production and melting of styles that range into rock, acid folkrock and blues with hints of flamenco and classic guitar thanks to Paul Brett’s 6- and 12-string guitars, Higginbottom’s meandering flute and understated sax, and some very appropriate percussion off the hands of Bob Voice. There’s also some tasty but uncredited keyboard work, particularly on “Mediterranean Lazy Heat Wave”. Other highlights of the album include the acid number “Trophies of War”; the driving “Warlock” with Brett’s wildly unrestrained freaky guitar solos; and the back-to-back melancholy of “The Sun Died” and the apocalyptic “The Tower”, with Brett giving an early glimpse of the 12-string dexterity that would become his trademark in later years. And there is “Reasons for your Asking”, a truly beguiling and touching ballad. And the catchy 3D Mona Lisa, and. No tracks are wasted here, and despite the fact this record is 50 years old it retains an appeal that makes the music still relevant today. Album comes with 4 sided insert with story, all lyrics, photos and other memorabilias. This is one of Long Hair`s favorites. Don`t miss this absolutely great album!
