So just exactly what are 'The Rockfield Mixes'? In essence they are the second and most dynamic of The Ian Gillan Band albums, namely 'Clear Air Turbulence'. The mixes on this CD were done at Rockfield Studios in Wales but Ian Gillan was unhappy with the results and the album underwent a major remix before it was finally released on 15 April 1977. The Ian Gillan Band's music was a fusion of many styles from Rock to Jazz Funk. The Rockfield Mixes is a unique opportunity to hear classy (and some say superior) performances, from a great 70's Rock super group, in their original form.
Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. This is the music that will be playing when you die and go to heaven. Excellent original style Dixieland, George's clarinet is heaven! I don't know if any record can do justice to the live experience of the original giants of jazz creating this stuff. But the George Lewis tracks on this record come pretty close! For this alone this CD is well worth buying.
