BODY - THE BODY ALBUM (UK'81)
Plus 2 Bonus Tracks
Criminally Underrated Spacerock Gem
Body, a five-piece band from Liverpool, are actively working in the UK in 1997. They are "the sound and the soul of the late nineties", with roots in the seventies and eighties - they performed at the legendary Merseyside club, Eric's, and toured extensively in Europe during the 1980s. Formed in 1971 by guitarist Tony Alliston, his brother Gary Alliston (drums) and bass guitarist Ronnie Nelson, the band earned a well-deserved following for their ‘spacey’ live shows, described by reviewers as "like an early Pink Floyd, or a dirtier Moody Blues". This CD also features John Bleasdale (keyboards), who joined the band from Pegasus, who were forerunners of OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark). The original 1981 LP, 'The Body Album', released on the band's own Recession label, is highly collectable and very rare, to the point where any copy which has recently become available in Japan changes hands for UKP250! Most of the album was engineered by John Brierley, the original third (non-musician) member/engineer of The Way We Live/Tractor, who engineered/produced that band's two classic albums for Dandelion Records, the label for whom he also engineered albums by Beau.
