The Long Hello was an instrumental progressive album recorded in August 1973 by David Jackson, Hugh Banton, Guy Evans & Friends (including another ex-Van Der Graaf Generator - bassist Nic Potter and guitarist Ced Curtis - both at the time of the session were members of Rare Bird) soon after VDGG was disbanded. The music on that album was truly beautiful, well-arranged, quite relaxing and very melodic (with plenty of flute, sax and classical guitar) but also dark, twisted and most of the time very similar to the early VDGG style. This unjustly underrated record was originally signed by the band members, titled 'The Long Hello’ and released in 1974 on Italian United Artists label. 2 years later it was reissued in the UK (with different cover and with reversed sides) by the band ‘The Long Hello’ themselves as a limited edition of 5000 copies. This CD has been carefully remastered from original, analogue source.

================================================================================

The Long Hello was first possible by fans. In 1973, I wanted to create an outlet for collaborations involving former Van der Graaf members and others, free from the angst of record company involvement and the dreaded necessity to maintain a permanent band. Some close friends I had first met as Van der Graaf fans offered to finance the project. I set about finding a location, equipment and assistance, this, in days long before the availability of cheap compact multi-track machines. Finally, I a derelict farmhouse in Wales, a 3m machine and a valve mixing desk, both very ancient and Hugh Banton, recruited not, at his insistence, as a musician but as a technical advisor and engineer, since, at the time my technical knowledge was non-existent and my engineering experience, nil. There then followed the peculiar mix of musical design and random event wich has characterized the Long hello ever since. Large numbers of Italians came and went, a piano arrived by sheep trailer, David persuaded the local bird population to perform; Hugh Banton nbanned everyone from the studio in order to re-align the tape machine and ended up recording all the instruments on 'Brain Seizure'. The derelict farm became Foel Studio.
