The Telegraph :: New London, Connecticut

Three CD clamshell box conaining all the Jade Warrior albums issued on the legendary Vertigo label in 1971 and 1972. Formed in 1970, JADE WARRIOR were one of the most original British bands to emerge during the Progressive Rock era. Signing to Philips' progressive Vertigo label, the band recorded their self-titled debut album in March 1971. A remarkable work, 'JADE WARRIOR' would be the template upon which the band would build their unique sound - venturing stylistically between ethnic music, melodic, gentle ethereal and ambient sounds and heavier guitar driven rock. Upon it's release the album was acclaimed by critics and has since acquired legendary status for it's sheer inventiveness. In November 1971, the band's second album, 'RELEASED', was issued. For the sessions the band had now expanded to a quartet with drummer ALLAN PRICE adding a new character to the band's sound. The sessions also featured a guest appearance from saxophonist DAVE CONNORS. 'RELEASED' was a huge progression from the band's debut and featured such classic tracks as 'THREE-HORNED DRAGION KING', 'EYES ON YOU' and the epic 14-minute piece 'BARAZINBAR'. 'LAST AUTUMN'S DREAM' was the band's third and last album for Vertigo and was arguably the most fully realised album by Jade Warrior during their tenure with the label, featuring such classic tracks as 'A WINTER'S TALE', 'SNAKE', 'DARK RIVER' and 'BORNE ON THE SOLAR WIND'. This Esoteric Recordings celebrates the early years of one of Britain's most unique progressive bands and features an illustrated booklet with essay.
