This stunning double live album from Mostly Autumn is the culmination and release of all the pent-up emotion and frustration that gathered after two and a half years of inactivity due to the pandemic. The concert is a mark of some kind of normality returning, and the cast of songs spans 27 years of the band. The magic and intensity is captured deeply in this show and is highly infectious.
Award winning Mostly Autumn’s musical palette is diverse, they draw on influences from the golden age of rock, but have developed their own unique sound that both captures the essence of that era and yet looks forward into the future. They have earned themselves a name for their outstanding live shows and have been described as ‘the best band you have never heard’.
Since forming back in 1996, Mostly Autumn have earned themselves a name for their relentless touring schedule and outstanding live shows.
They have built a loyal and cult following since their first album sixteen years ago and in that time such luminaries as Steve Hackett, the late Richard Wright, and the late Jon Lord and the BBC‘s own Bob Harris are amongst their many fans. They have been personally invited by Ritchie Blackmore to support on his Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow arena shows also as an acoustic duo to support Steve Hackett’s Genesis revisited tour.
Mostly Autumn has also toured as an invited support act to Blackmore‘s Night, Uriah Heep and Jethro Tull, as well as being special guests at Bryan Adam‘s Murrayfield Stadium gig a few years ago. That alone should give some indication as to the calibre of the band.
Bryan Josh is that rare beast – a hugely talented guitarist who knows how to play with feeling and for the song. His soaring guitar, always drenched in pure emotion, at times recall the golden era of guitar heroes such as David Gilmour but never outstays its welcome, always leaving the listener wanting a little more. Lead vocalist Olivia Sparnenn is a true talent, the range and beauty of her voice is world class. The magnificence of Iain Jennings on keyboards, complimented by a rock solid yet fluid rhythm section - Andy Smith (bass), Henry Rogers (drums), Chris Johnson (guitar) and Angela Gordon on flute and keyboards, make Mostly Autumn a band that will enthrall you and awaken memories of what real music is really about.
