The Studio : Volume 1 - 5. A superb moment giving Greaves' Bad alchemy a prophetic title, since the two bits are not quite sticking together, due to some shaky linking chords between the sections.
The two Groningen pieces are quartet-based Copper and Krause not having joined yet, I believe, and Leigh having already left and shows them in typical improvisation mood, showing a good tightness and ability to anticipate each other. My preference goes to the second part, which holds a devilish groove with frith soaring like an eagle and Cutler guarding Hades' entrance to the underworld!
The second disc starts in a difficult mode, with a min improv, named Oslo after the city it was recorded in and at the base of this album and holds lesser interest for those not into free-jazz-type of music. However I find their Oslo improv a little less obtuse than their Unrest album, with cooper present and surprisingly enough Dagmar who only gets a few yelling moments a good thing mind you ;- , but overall, the track doesn't offer much in terms of riveting music.
With only one disc the first of good to excellent tracks, and the other filled with boring improvs: junk as my girlfriend would say, as she storms out of the house!
And for once, I can only agree with her as I eject the disc from the deck. Hardly the treasure chest promised, this HC double album is at least interesting because all sides of the group are presented! Too bad the improvising facets wins in terms of space, though!
The sound quality is great, and the band who did this medley in concerts back then do it perfectly and seemingly without effort. It picks back up 5 minutes in to the end. Not a big fan of this one. Lots of atmosphere 3 minutes in as the vocals stop. It becomes almost eerie as it blends into "Beautiful Is The Moon". This is another outstanding track with some piano, drums and fuzz organ. Amazing sound.
Wyatt does his vocal melodies then follows it up with vocals. Love this song. Some good guitar 3 minutes and the drumming is outstanding. Check out the organ in the first part of this song!
After 4 minutes it changes to a chamber rock style. Some raw guitar 10 minutes in with vocal melodies a minute later from Dagmar. The last 2 tracks improvs on the first disc require some patience and are a let down for me after all that has gone on before. Disc two is pretty much the band experimenting and improvising. I agree with Syzygy that the final song "Udine" is by far the best of the bunch. Overall a 3 star recording although I can't see playing disc 2 anytime soon.

Peter Marsh Concerts was Henry Cow 's last recording for Virgin Records who gave it a rather half hearted release on their budget label, Caroline. Only briefly available on CD, this is effectively its first proper issue, and very welcome it is too. As drummer Chris Cutler points out in the sleevenotes, Henry Cow's live sets were equally split between structured songs and free improvisation.
Both are well documented here. Disc 1 is mainly given over to the former, with a beautifully played John Peel Session from featuring a medley of Cow crowdpleasers "Nirvana for Mice", "Beautiful as the Moon" together with a cover of Robert Wyatt's "Gloria Gloom".
Dagmar Krause is in fine voice, as is Fred Frith's gently acerbic guitar. The Cow never sounded more lush than they did here.Apr 12, · Henry Cow - Concerts Henry Cow Concerts is a live double album by English avant-rock group Henry Cow, recorded at concerts in London, Italy, the Netherlands and Norway between September and October Sides one and two of the LP record consist of composed material while sides three and four contain improvised pieces.
