Raven presents on unique Double CD, a multi-label career overview of the legendary Los Angeles rock band SPIRIT. Spirit offered a truly innovative approach and presence with a blend of rock and jazz mixed with blues, folk and psychedelic elements. The Best Of 1968-1977: Fresh from the Time Coast boasts 43 tracks, over 150 minutes of music and is the first time the best tracks from the band’s five albums for Ode/Epic and four albums for Mercury have been combined into one stunning package. Formed in 1967 around teenage guitar prodigy Randy California, keyboardist Jay Ferguson and jazz veteran and bald-headed drummer Ed Cassidy, Spirit hit with the glorious single ‘I Got a Line on You’ (#25) one of the most recognisable guitar riffs in rock.
Also on Disc One are all the other highlights of their five albums for Ode/Epic (Spirit, The Family That Plays Together, Clear, Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus, Feedback): ‘Fresh-Garbage’, ‘Dream within a Dream’, ‘Nature’s Way’, ‘Darkness’ and 17 other quality songs. The band’s run of four albums for Mercury during the 1970s (Spirit of ’76, Son of Spirit, Farther Along, Future Games) is well represented on Disc Two with ‘Victim of Society’, ‘Looking into Darkness’, ‘Farther Along’ and ‘Stars are Love’. With superb quality audio, detailed liner notes, colour booklet this double CD is a must for fans of classic rock.
