Terry Reid (Sold Out)

Written by conall. Posted in Blues'n'Jazz, Music

Terry Reid, ‘Superlungs’ as he’s affectionately known, is without doubt one of the greatest rock/soul voices this country has ever produced or is indeed likely to. A Terry Reid concert should be a cherished memory for any self-respecting fan of the greats of British music. Terry turned down the front man’s job with Led Zeppelin, recommending his mate Robert Plant instead, a similar offer and rebuff to Deep Purple. Aretha Franklin’s stated that The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Terry Reid were the best England had to offer in 1968. He underwent two World Tours with The Rolling Stones, US tours with Cream, UK tours with Jethro Tull and Fleetwood Mac, The Isle of White Festival in 1969 and Glastonbury in 1970, played at Mick Jagger’s wedding, before soured record deals resulted in Terry leaving Britain for America nearly 40 years ago. All true, but the full story includes numerous collaborations with Graham Nash, covers of Reid songs by Marianne Faithfull, The Hollies, The Raconteurs (the hugely popular ‘Rich Kid Blues’), film soundtracks, including a song in George Clooney’s recent film ‘Up In The Air’, and a catalogue of 6 studio albums, including the seminal album ‘The River’, re-released to critical acclaim in 2002 and the 1976 Nash produced ‘Seed of Memory’. A Reid song ‘Horses Through a Rainstorm’ also features on CSN’s box set. More recently, Terry’s been working with up and coming French band Shine and The Alabama 3. Following a Glastonbury return in 2009, he played a three night residency at Ronnie Scott’s in London, one of only a handful of non-Jazz artists invited to help mark the legendary venue’s 50th Anniversary. He played to packed houses, critical acclaim, and returned in 2010 and 2011 to sell out 3 consecutive nights. In May 2011, he toured Ireland for the first time in 30 years, and released a new live album ‘Live In London’ which included several previously unreleased tracks. Uncut Magazine presented a show featuring Terry at The Jazz Café and he toured England, including several sell-out shows. A return to Glastonbury, headlining the Spirit of 71 stage followed. 2012 turned out to be an important year for Terry Reid. In May 2012, Rumer featured Terry’s song ‘Brave Awakening’ on her new album Boys Don’t Cry, (which entered the UK Album Chart at No3). Terry returned to the Isle of Wight Festival for the first time since 1971 in June. In August ‘America’s Got Talent’ Winner in 2010, Michael Grimm, included Terry’s song ‘Without Expression’ on his latest album, Gumbo. In the spring, DJ Shadow had invited Terry to write the lyrics to a new track for his forthcoming ‘Reconstructed’ album – This became the song ‘Listen’ and the official video got 400,000 plays on Youtube in late 2012. There is an undeniable resurgence in recognition for this outstanding vocalist and songwriter. Limited amount on tickets on sale Friday 31st May 9am for this intimate show.
