专辑介绍

Harmony Row is the legitimate follow-up to Jack Bruce´excellent songs for a tailor, although 1971 also saw the almost-simultaneous release of 1968 jazz tapes entitled Things We Like by this artist. An elaborate gatefold package has a shadow photo of the artist from the back, overlooking a golden sun on the waters. The self-produced disc begins with the pop excursion Can You Follow, which blends into Escape To The Royal Wood (On Ice). Jack Bruce provides the voice, keyboards, bass, and some percussion, making this very much a solo project. You Burned The Tables On Me takes things into a progressive rock-meets-jazz arena.

Harmony Row is the legitimate follow-up to Jack Bruce´excellent songs for a tailor, although 1971 also saw the almost-simultaneous release of 1968 jazz tapes entitled Things We Like by this artist. An elaborate gatefold package has a shadow photo of the artist from the back, overlooking a golden sun on the waters. The self-produced disc begins with the pop excursion Can You Follow, which blends into Escape To The Royal Wood (On Ice). Jack Bruce provides the voice, keyboards, bass, and some percussion, making this very much a solo project. You Burned The Tables On Me takes things into a progressive rock-meets-jazz arena. The only reference to blues here is Bruce´s voice, but guitarist Chris Spedding´s scratchy guitar, and the percussion ? either by Jack Bruce or drummer Jim Marshall (who plays on what is not specified) make the track sound almost like Cream without Clapton. There´s a rare photo of Peter Brown in the second cardboard gatefold, and one of Bruce, while all of Brown´s lyrics are spread out for public consumption. A nice touch, as Peter Brown is to Jack Bruce what Keith Reid is to Procul Harum, and the cleverly obscured words are sometimes the only foundation to grasp at while one of rock & roll´s most innovative bassists goes from genre to genre, combining rhythms and melodies that defy commercial categorization. Harmony Row is the album that combines many flavors of Bruce´s experimentations, making it courageous, adventurous, and hardly the product for a mass audience.
