Spaceship Earth- the most underrated album of all time
Stuart | Briarcliff Manor, NY USA | 03/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For listeners who revel in progressive and classic rock (ELP, Yes, Doors, Santana, Tull, Beatles), this is as essential an album as "Brain Salad Surgery" or "Abbey Road." Please keep in mind that I only refer to the "Spaceship Earth" section of this re-release 2-album CD. In that glorious album, the talents of this band are magnified by the superlative writing and playing of guitarist Robert Yeazel- yes, keyboard whiz Jerry Corbetta was the leader/founder of the band, but Yeazel was to Sugarloaf as Steve Hackett was to Genesis- an integral composer whose writing inspired the group to realize an intense musical potential- just listen to the album and see for yourself! "Spaceship Earth" belongs on the same shelf as all the greatest classic and progressive rock albums. This is a must-buy that will truly please lovers of real music. Enjoy!"

"This cd contains both Sugarloaf's first lp entitled "Sugarloaf" and their second lp "Spaceship Earth". The two big classics are all here and in their entire extended versions "Green-Eyed Lady" and "Tongue-in-Cheek". "Tongue-in-Cheek" which is my favorite has some incredible guitar playing. Two lead guitars alternate and the outcome is fantastic. Also included as a bonus cut is "Don't Call Us..." which was their last and only hit. All in all this is classic early seventies rock. Highly recommended."
SPACESHIP EARTH was definitely an overlooked CLASSIC | florida | 06/27/1999

"If you liked the hit "Green-Eyed Lady" you'll love the 6:48 min uncut version. However the real mindblower here (other than "Green") is "Space- ship Earth" a truly classic LP. Recorded just a few months after the 1st LP, it picks up where Green Eyed Lady left off & expands upon that mysterious mood. All of Spaceship is far superior to the other stuff on album #1. The jazzy & hard rock touches remain, & unexpected musical ideas pop up everywhere. The title cut is an awesome instrumental with nice dual guitar & the band functioning as an interlocking & interacting unit. "Rusty Cloud" is an uptempo environmental tune with great lyrics & a fuzz guitar chorus. "Woman" has more great instrumental work & a nice bluesy vocal break, & "Mother Nature's Wine" may be the best song on the disc, capturing a very mysterious feeling. The harmony vocals on this disc (especially on "Woman" & "Mother Nature's")are so incredible they'll send chills up your spine. After these guys all pass on, they'll be turning in their graves wondering how they could have made one of the best classic rock LPs of all time only to have it go completely unnoticed. Strangely "Hot Water" which appears as a sort of superfluous tune on the original vinyl is sorely missed. It added a hard rock edge & it's absence interrupts the sequencing of the songs on the cd. If you liked Green-Eyed Lady - you want this!!!You won't be sorry."
