The Return Of The "Silver Lady"

""Time to wake up, time to rise..." are the words which open this album, and they are appropriate to this release of a concept-rock legend on CD. From the beautiful instrumental "Approach" to "Keeper Keep Us" featuring Meatloaf at his soulful best, this album is a joy to listen to. The concept is simple: This is a "recording" of the "Welcome Home" concert of the InterGalactic Touring Band. The Band has been roaming the Galaxy for 10 years promoting understanding and peace through music, and now they have returned to Earth and are playing the first concert in the newly-completed Orbital Entertainment Dome - a space-going concert hall. One or two of the songs give away a disco-era influence (most notably Love Station), but things like the flat, merciless-sounding refrain of "We are the law!" in Space Commando or the intricate instumental weaving in Silver Lady can give you a shiver. So please return your seat-backs to their full, relaxed position, and remember the use of electronic devices with headphones is encouraged on this flight...Get The Inter Galactic Touring Band, and prepare for launch."
I'd give this 10 stars if I could.

"I also bought the LP in 1977 - and it has remained one of my favorites ever since. Just unique. Catchy, harmonious, rock opera full of some of rock's best voices including David Cousins and Annie Haslam. Should have been much better known than it was, but I'm thrilled it's available on CD now."
