This is the official re-release on vinyl under licensed courtesy of BMG Rights Management,UK, remastered from an original master copy out of the vaults of BMG, originally released in 1972 on Transatlantic progressive rock label Dawn.
Jonesy were an early 70's progressive rock outfit whose albums were reputedly delicate, melodic affairs, somewhat similar to King Crimson and with a lot of mellotrons V.Joynson, Tapestry of Delights). They recorded three albums on the Dawn Label "No Alternative", "Keeping Up" and "Growing" (all now newly reissued on vinyl by Long Hair). All are strong with the aforementioned KING CRIMSON influences. The music is very British sounding and holds similarities to other bands of the day, apart from King Crimson to name a few Tonton Mocoute, Ben, Spring and others in that field. The really heavy use of mellotron gives the music that particular sound of early prog. Just like Spring, Jonesy makes emotive prog which is both epic and melodious. All three album are great stuff!
The third album Growing was released in the same year as Keeping up, starting off with "Can you get that together", a rather harsh and energetic piece of rock with slightly jazz influences. Slightly askew and bordering on free-form, just enough to keep it on track, it is an interesting track and a great way to start off an album. Energy, stamina and power. The two following tracks are a bit on the mellow side. "Know who your friends are" boasts a great first section, heading into a spacious and jazzy middle part before heading straight back into the sound which opened up the song. "Hard road" is a jazz-rock piece with distorted trumpet and energetic, almost funky feel to it. The track "Jonesy" is an instrumental affair which is a fitting testament to one of the great forgotten bands of the 70's. It leaves them hanging on a high note. Growing is well produced, played and full of vision.
Albums comes with comprehensive bandstory. All tracks are remastered. Don`t miss this high quality album! Limited edition.
