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.
The legend is of turning down the front man’s job with Led Zeppelin, recommending his mate Robert Plant instead, a similar offer and rebuff to Deep Purple; of Aretha Franklin’s statement that The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Terry Reid were the best England had to offer in 1968, of 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, playing at Mick Jagger’s wedding, then soured record deals and leaving Britain for America nearly 40 years ago. (seewww.terryreid.com) for full history)All true, but the full story includes numerous collaborations with Graham Nash, who produced Reid’s 1976 album Seed of Memory; covers of Reid songs by Marianne Faithfull, The Hollies, The Raconteurs (the hugely popular Rich Kid Blues), Cheap Trick and in 2012 Rumer included Brave Awakening on her album Boys Don’t Cry. Reid songs have featured on film soundtracks, including a song in George Clooney’s film Up In The Air and several tracks on Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects. There is a catalogue of 6 studio albums, including the seminal album The River, re-released to critical acclaim in 2014 (9/10 Uncut) and the 1976 Nash produced Seed of Memory (also available from BGO Records. A Reid song – Horses Through a Rainstorm, which Reid originally recorded as Without Expression – also features on Crosby, Still & Nash’s box set
