Aside from Roger Dean's iconic cover illustrations, Greenslade weren't like most prog brands of the 1970s. Keyboardist Dave Greenslade and bassist Tony Reeves formed the quartet in 1972 after leaving jazz-rock outfit Colosseum. Eschewing guitars, they hired Samurai's Dave Lawson as a second keyboardist, and former Manfred Mann drummer Andrew McCulloch (he also played on King Crimson's Lizard) . The band's approach utilized typical knotty, stop-and-start cadences, and key and tempo changes, but those are only a few elements in their complex soundscape. The rest of Greenslade's sound reflected a penchant for catchy melodies derived from pop, jazz, classical, and folk. Keyboardist Lawson spent years backing singers including Bing Crosby and Peggy Lee. Greenslade, Reeves, and McCulloch came up in the British blues and jump R&B bands of the early 1960s. The remastered albums in this box mark their four studio outings: 1973's Greenslade and Bedside Manners Are Extra, 1974's Spyglass Guest, and 1975's Time & Tide.

Greenslade were something of a prog rock supergroup when they formed in 1972. Dave Greenslade (son of Arthur Greenslade, noted arranger for Scott Walker, Dusty Springfield and many more) had been the keyboard player in jazz rock oufits Colosseum and If. Bass player Tony Reeves also came from the ranks of Colosseum, while drummer Andy McCulloch had been in the "Lizard" line-up of King Crimson. Vocalist/second keyboard player Dave Lawson had been in Episode Six and The Alan Bown Set and the unique ‘two keyboards/no guitar lineup’ gave them a signature sound. This Edsel package contains the group’s third and fourth albums, originally issued on the Warner Bros. label in 1974 and 1975. The booklet contains all the lyrics, and annotation by Alan Robinson.
