In order to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary Galahad will be releasing a double CD retrospective with a twist, the twist being that ten of the tracks included are brand new re-recorded versions of old Galahad songs, some dating back to 1985, the year the band formed, including one thirty year old track (City of Freedom) which has never been recorded before!
In some cases the new versions are similar to the originals but in other cases the songs have been re-worked and re-arranged considerably, either way we have tried our best to be sympathetic to the spirit of the originals whilst trying to bring them up to date in terms of their sonic quality and also so that they compare favourably, hopefully, with the Galahad sound of 2015!
As this is a rather special album, not to mention epic as it clocks in at around 2hours 40 minutes, we have also included a few strategically placed ‘tributes’ to a few of our original influences within some of the newly recorded ‘old’ tracks, so it’ll be interesting to see if they’ll get spotted!
The remaining tracks included on this career spanning album are taken from the three 'Thin Ice' albums and the recent EP's.
There are also a few guests making an appearance on this release, including Karl Groom on acoustic guitar, Mark Andrews, Galahad keyboard player from 1988 -1991, plays piano on three tracks and Sarah Bolter sings backing vocals on Ocean Blue.
Hopefully, this collection is a fair representation of the Galahad cannon and will appeal to existing fans of the band and will also, perhaps, act as a taster to those yet to dip their toes in the world of Galahad music.
