Their music is instantly recognizable: intricate, highly arranged, partly frenetic and always melodic. Shifting between sections with ease, it is one of Stewart's finest compositions. Album) chaotic introduction to "Elephants" is followed by Album) more frenetic than usual pace, before the record returns to "Tenemos Road" for a final coda.

Squarer For Borogoves (Part One) - National Health - National Health (Vinyl part 2 Total Time: Alan Gowen rejoined after Dave Stewart left the band, due to busines disagreements more than creative differences. Regardless, the boys soldiered on and toured anyway, and here you can witness the telepathic interplay on such pieces as "Flanagan's People""Dreams Wide Awake" and "Pleaides" especially.
Another highlight here is "Squarer For Maude" though I do miss the cellos and organs on the original version. Overall, the band plays with the ferocity of a Mahavishnu Orchestra or Return to Forever while still retaining the unique Canterbury whimsy and wit.
Bassist John Greaves propels things along with fuzzy, roaring almost Magma-esque lines as Pip Pyle paints like a madman from behind his drum kit. Guitarist Phil Miller is in fine form with his singing yet edgy Gibson SG tone while Allen Gowen's keyboard work shimmers and sparkles and adds just the right amount of metallic clang on the Fender Rhodes.
Allen's style was markedly different from Dave Stewart's, not just in his choice of sounds mainly Rhodes and synths but also the fact his compositions tended to leave more room for improvisation. Very highly recommended! I'll be frank and say that this is the NH album I get the least mileage out of.
Hearing live versions of "Squarer for Maud", "Flanagan's People" and "Dreams Wide Awake" are interesting, and it's neat to get to hear never-released stuff like "Pleiades" and "Play Time". But something's missing. I don't want to pin too much of NH's appeal on Stewart, but he did bring the music a cohesiveness that's rather lacking here.
Too much of this just feels like jam music, with little of the quirky "modern classical meets jazz" feel that was NH's greatest appeal, LP. More of historic interest than musical.
For the NH fan who already has everything else. I am not going to join the 'Dave Stewart vs. Alan Gowen' debate; I love and admire the way Stewart played keyboards with National Health and Bruford, but Gowen undeniably has plenty of charm as well. His minimoog solos must be among the most delightful ever performed on that instrument, equalling or even surpassing the things George Duke and Eddie Jobson did with Zappa. It's also great to hear Phil Miller spreading out. I loved his late Seventies guitar sound and felt disappointed when I bought a CD of his band In Cahoots a few years ago, only Album) notice he now sounds far more conventional.
Then this might be just the album for you. As other reviewers have said, interplay between all the band members is great, and Pip Pyle in particular turns out to be a real star. Because of the improvisatory character of certain passages, the band sometimes remind me of Brand X rather than the old Health.
Some listeners may be disappointed that studio favourites are getting a fairly rough treatment, but it all comes with greater spontaneity. Also, the sound quality is not exactly top-drawer, but that does not bother me when I play the album through speakers instead of headphones. Conclusion: excellent album, essential to Canterbury freaks, wish there were more bands playing this sort of music today! Things get started with the concert in France.
The first track "Flanagan's People" is a Gowen composition and the longest song on here at almost 16 minutes. This one is very jazzy. Actually it seems the concert in France leans to thier jazzy side, while the concert in the U. Again the bass is killer, very deep. We get some improv it appears around the 9 minute mark.

Please try again later. I have treasured this collection for many years. Despite the fluidity of their lineup they were always great. I was very fortunate to attend a show in Chicago at a little club called Shuba's beck in the 70s. The PA system was horrible but their instrumental interplay was astounding. Virtuosos all, yet they always stayed within an ensemble style, complementing each other's playing but never showing off - much improvisation.
This was some of the most brilliant music to come out of that era. I was able to corral Alan Gowen in the men's room while he was relieving himself, asking him obscure questions about the "Canterbury Scene" like "Will Gilgamesh ever reform?
