Unreleased Terry Reid tracks get May release

The Other Side Of The River, a collection of songs from Terry Reid recorded during the sessions for his River album, will be released on May 20. The album has been remastered from the original analogue tapes, and will include six previously unreleased compositions and five alternative takes of tracks from the 1973 version. The sleeve notes are by Terry Reid himself.

With River recorded over three years, across two continents and with two producers, there are an estimated four albums worth of unreleased material left over from those sessions, and The Other Side Of The River sees some of those tracks available officially for the first time. Musicians on the album include John Lennon’s drummer Alan White, Ike Turner’s bass player Lee Miles, and Kaleidoscope’s David Lindley on violin.

Terry Reid kicks off a tour of the East Coast of the US and the UK in April (dates below). The Other Side Of The River is available to pre-order now from Light In The Attic.
