Synopsis

Product Description
Rebirth is the second (and best) of three albums released by late sixties/early seventies band Blonde On Blonde. Debut album Contrasts had ranged from pop to rock, with elements of folk and psychedelia. With distinctive new singer Dave Thomas on board, and fiery guitarist Gareth Johnson taking a dominant role, Rebirth was a far more coherent affair. The band delivered an ambitious set of melodic, progressive rock. From the Moody Blues-like pop-rock of opening track (and single A-side) Castles In The Sky to the Procol Harum-style keyboard grandeur of finale You ll Never Know Me/Release, via heavy magnum opus Colour Questions, Rebirth is consistently excellent. Released on indie label Ember, without the promotional clout of a major progressive label like Harvest, Deram or Vertigo, Rebirth somehow got lost in the plethora of fine rock released in 1970. Expanded to include the single version of album tour de force Circles, Rebirth has been mastered from original tapes and housed in a new sleeve, based on a striking publicity photo of the band posing in a castle.
