Active between 1968 and 1970 – In 1971 reincarnated as “Samurai”

THE WEB was and remains one of the deepest secrets of British prog rock, and nowadays it is a vital item for collectors and researchers. The band started as a jazz/blues act, with a style simultaneously related to America’s West Coast groove and UK’s early prog (or proto-prog). The powerful presence of African-American singer John L. WATSON and two guitarists provided a tight muscle to the band’s sound, reflected in the first two studio efforts “Fully Interlocking” (1968) and “Theraposa Blondi” (1970).

After WATSON and bassist Dick LEE-SMITH left, John EATON switched to bass. and more importantly, Dave Lawson entered the band to provide not only vocals but also keyboards, as well as a whole new written material. This factor was absolutely relevant for the band to adopt a more profound progressive vibe, adding colorfulness and sophistication to the existing muscle. The band also changed labels (from DERAM to POLYDOR), and why not, the name, after dropping the article “THE”. The result was portrayed in their third effort “I Spider”, which is justly regarded as the band’s artistic peak. The band developed a type of complex jazz-rock related to what VdGG, GENTLE GIANT, COLOSSEUM and SOFT MACHINE were doing at the time. It is no wonder that Dave LAWSON and Dave GREENSLADE’s musical visions were going in parallel lines, since a couple of years later they would team up as the dual leaders of GREENSLADE. But that’s another story to be told elsewhere. For their next album, WEB decided to add a second horn player to its ranks and switch its name to SAMURAI: that is also another story to be told elsewhere.

THE WEB / WEB is a must for all proto-prog and jazz-rock lovers, and ultimately, for any serious researcher who truly loves the prog genre and is eager to get acquainted with its deepest roots.

12. Rainbows – Bonus Live Track (4:24)

Occasionally an album comes along to make you realise just why you fell in love with music – This is one of those. Ana Silvera is hugely talented and the perfect antidote to all the X Factor schlock that we are continually subjected to. For some reason this album takes me back decades but that doesn’t mean it’s behind the times.

It is just a reminder of the days when albums were lovingly crafted with superb songs and poetic lyrics. The days when music was bright and vibrant and could stun. Yes The Aviary can and does reduce me to tears. It’s that good with the classical sounds of violin and cello acting as a counterpoint to Ana’s beautiful deep and resonant voice that seems to change in order to convey her songs. I had the pleasure of seeing Ana live at a small but excellent venue in Norwich and this record includes most of the songs covered that night. There are so many points of reference. Manon sounds like Janice Ian around the time of her classic “Between the Lines” album. Other tracks have an early Elton John feel to them and to me Ana is the female partner to my favourite British singer-songwriter John Howard. Some of the arrangements and phrasing are so similar. The great thing about this album is the way Ana has married exceptional poetry, often anchored in fairy tales and myth, with melodies to die for.

11. Puttin’ on the Ritz (Arr. for Brass Ensemble)

What could be warmer, rounder, more illuminating, fuller – to put it briefly: more beautiful! – than a large brass ensemble. This is the impression one has from the GENUIN debut CD of 10forBrass, an ensemble that has won a number of prizes. From the first bars until the end, it is filled with wonderful arrangements! These young brass players, wildly popular with the public, really let themselves go: from the Renaissance to jazz, from the Dukas Fanfare to the Ritz in New York. And they flatter our ears: from Debussy’s tender sounds to the enraptured Mahler lied. A magnificent disc, and not only for brass fans!

GRAVY TRAIN from Lancashire were formed in 1969 by guitarist/vocalist Norman Barratt. They managed to get a contract with the famous Vertigo label. And their first outing aptly named “Gravy Train” hit the street in early 1971. Second album, by many critics and followers hailed as their best, came later that same year (december 1971) titled: “(A Ballad of) a Peaceful Man”. That also saw the ending of contractaul obligations with Vertigo. However Dawn records signed them for another 2 albums. “Second Birth” were released in 1973 and “Staircase to the Day” 1974.

12. Anata Dake No Kuni (3:27)

Singer-songwriter, who has been searching deeply for his own music for 5 years since his independence, is the first album for the first time in about 2 years with Ayaka Tainaka. The song has been produced until he is convinced to breathe one song one song, but now his work is more comfortable than ever, and it is finished as “music” which is nowhere else. Focusing on the deep sound of the grand piano, the first piano trio sound that is simple but never forgets to attack, is co-produced with the bassist, Tatsuya Kajima, who has supported the Japanese music world for a long time. A permanent storage board in which the beauty of her “voice” is trapped.
