Nucleus - Elastic Rock / We'll talk About It Later 2 x CDs

SKU 28-BGO47.2
The first two albums (1970/71) by Ian Carr's Nucleus, includes players like Chris Spedding, Karl Jenkins, Jeff Clyne & John Marshall. This is a pretty essential slice of fusion for those interested in the earliest, heady days of fusion. Includes Jenkins' Song For The Bearded Lady which he later re-worked into "Hazard Profile" for Soft Machine.

"Nucleus, the oft overlooked UK jazz-rock ensemble led by trumpeter Ian Carr, recorded a batch of LPs for the legendaryVertigo label. Their first two albums from 1970, collected on this double CD are as important an artifact in the development of a British prog-jazz identity as Soft Machine's Third. The debut album, Elastic Rock, is a mellow groove in a style comparable to the (then) not even born Weather Report, fortified with guitars and a typical Canterbury melodic sensibility. However, thes econd album, We'll Talk About It Later, is the clincher. Propelled by layers of funky keyboards and a sometimes heavily distorted bass the grooves here rise to menacing climaxes..." --Frank van den Elzen.
