Review
When originally released (1983) this album really was a minor masterpiece, now I sit here with a big fat smile on my face looking at this lavish new, remixed, 30´th anniversary collectors edition of "Tales From The Lush Attic" in a beautiful double cardboard box, complete with the original fine cover illustration, the cd, an amazing 32 page full color booklet, a dvd, bonus tracks & Mp3 files. How´s that for an anniversary release?! Many bands and record companies could really learn something here, this is how it is done!! This shows love and respect for the band and its followers! This excellent package holds top drawer old school prog (Think early Genesis, Marillion, Pallas & Pendragon) on both audio and video (dvd... with demo´s, original mixes, photo gallery, live 5 track video etc. etc.) and comes highly recommended from this old proghead! GEP and the band sets the bar really high for future coming anniversary re-releases, lets hope the tendency spreads within´ the circuits of progbands and their respective record companies! For those of you whom already own the original album, you know you need this in your collection!! The rest of you..well that goes for you too, that is if you are a real prog collector?! Over the years ive come to love this album, every track, every tune, the perfect delivery, the fine musicians herein- delivering the perfect soundscape for the story´s told! Now, that I got his ultimate package, I feel like.. well, a long lost friend have come back to me, though in better shape and as beautiful as ever! Fav tracks?! Well surprise surprise ... actually all of the original tunes and the bonus track " Wintertell" (2012) but also the live (dvd) tracks are brilliant. What a way to start prog-year 2013 !!
