Format: Audio CD
Zwei weitere vergessene Highlights des Prog- oder auch Art-Rock, beide LP's der englischen Band Cressida auf einer Doppel-CD.

"Cressida" (1970) und "Asylum" (1971), beide auf dem Vertigo-Label erschienen, gehören zum symphonischen Prog, und sind musikalisch in der Nähe von den Moody Blues oder vergleichbaren Prog-Acts jener Zeit (Spring; Gracious) anzusiedeln. Bieten also eher eingängige Songs, sehr melodiereich. Besonders "Cressida" dürfte auch dem Pop-Fan zusagen, "Asylum" geht dann schon ein wenig mehr in die progressivere Richtung, mit längeren Tracks die etwas verschachtelter sind. Unter Prog-Fans gilt dieses zweite Album der Band als einer der Klassiker des Prog, und als perfekter Einstieg in diese Musik.

Diese beiden hochklassigen Alben sollten in keiner gut sortierten CD-Sammlung von 60er und 70er Jahre Musik fehlen.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Early English rock that incorporates classical, folk, and jazz styles 30. April 2006
Von J.Park - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
This two CD set combines the albums Cressida (1970) and Asylum (1971), which were originally released on the "progressive" Vertigo label. The original cover art is featured along with excellent sound quality and informative liner notes. Although I am reluctant to describe Cressida as prog rock, their music is somewhat adventurous in its approach and as such, the group sits comfortably alongside other early English bands such as Spring, Gracious, and Beggars Opera. Although I like Spring, Beggars Opera, and especially Gracious much better, this Cressida "two-fer" makes a nice addition to the early English prog rock collection. Then again, I am prog-obsessed and would probably buy just about anything.


The music on the first Cressida album is a melodic and sometimes brooding mix of classical, folk, jazz, and rock styles with pretty good vocals spread over 12 short tracks. The lineup includes Angus Cullen (lead vocals), John Heyworth (acoustic and electric guitar), Peter Jennings (harpsichord, Hammond organ, mellotron, and piano); Kevin McCarthy (bass); and Iain Clark (drums). Although the musicians are competent enough, the guitarist is a pretty awful soloist - he just does not have a good working knowledge of scales. In fact, he is more of a rhythm guitarist and does a decent job of that, although his fingerpicked parts on the acoustic are also pretty good. The keyboardist on the other hand, is an excellent player and quotes convincingly from a range of styles including jazz and classical, and as such really holds my interest. Although Peter plays mellotron with string setting, it is used very sparingly albeit effectively. His Hammond organ work is also impressive and the sounds he gets out of the instrument range from a majestic, "churchy" pipe organ sound to an aggressive and growling John Lord-ish tone. My general take on this debut album is that it is an honest effort by a group of individuals that were very interested in pushing the boundaries of rock.


For the only slightly more adventurous Asylum album, the previous guitarist John Heyworth had been replaced by the not-significantly-better John Culley. Asylum continues the approach of the debut, and although still a bit gloomy, it is also slightly more energetic with a greater emphasis on instrumental passages. The eight tracks are also a bit longer on average with "Munich" reaching 9'37" and "Let Them Come When They Will" reaching 11'52". One other difference is the absence of the mellotron, which had been, oddly enough, replaced by a real string section (much to my disappointment I might add). Overall, this is an OK album that is (once again) buoyed along by the great keyboard work of Peter Jennings.

5.0 von 5 Sternen two great albums 13. Mai 2008
Von Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
Both these albums are really special. Other people here cover the band's history, so I won't.

The first album is progressive folk-jazz. Tightly written songs, unusual changes, and really good accustic guitar playing. The songs are 3-4 minutes, but with lots of interesting twists and turns. Just listen to "Time for bed." the changes are jazzy, but the guitar player almost gets into bluegrass picking. If the Kinks at the time had a few more chops, I could see them trying something like this.

The second album is darker, dense with strings. It almost reminds me of what Elton John was doing with Madman Across The Water, but heavier. You could also compair it to early Bee Gees-both bands had the same producer-but the arrrangements are far more complicated.

Key is that Cressida never lost focus of the song, like a lot of prog bands did. Their writting is excellent, and bridges the gap between prog and high end pop.

Absolutely on the top of my list.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cressida-S/T/Asylum 11. Dezember 2009
Von Juvenal Aragon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
magnifica combinacion de los dos unicos discos del grupo britanico. perfecto eslabon entre la psicodelia y el rock progresivo. temas largos y cortos, con instrumentales formidables, con buenos acordes e intervenciones de guitarra y teclados. El vocalista resulta apropiado y comanda bien el enfasis tanto sobre la melodia como interrumpiendo los pasajes instrumentales. La presente edicion inglesa en Gott, es superior en sonido a las previas ediciones en Repertoire e incluso la Nipona, pues el sonido es muy nitido. Una obra de coleccion para aquellos que gustan de la pionera musica conocida como rock progresivo. Juvenal Aragon. Mexico

4.0 von 5 Sternen great addition for prog lovers 13. März 2011
Von S. Popa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
This particular issue must have been of a high interest for any prog rock fan, because it's one of those unique situations in which one may have two historical albums in a single box. Highly recommended for those interested in the beginnings of the progressive rock, and - undeserved - not much recognition for two very good British prog gems.
