    Maybe he played all the instruments himself on that "solo"album.

    I know, I just mean how did he break the news to the family that he was doing an album without them? I was mostly joking. But whatever he did, Keith Godchaux should have used a little of it with Donna!

    Well he and Brandi split a couple years ago, and my guess is that there were some legalities around the band name at that point which is probably why it was released just under his name.

    Oh, I didn't know they split up. That's a shame, after weathering the fire and all. Is his son still playing on Ozric albums?

    It was the damnedest thing. I work in Edinburgh and was in the station waiting for my train home, when I saw this dude waiting around. I was thinking, "he looks a little like Ed, but it can't be him because he lives in the US." I thought nothing more of it until I got home and then saw an email from Kscope announcing Ed's solo album, and describing the songs as "inspired by his home on the river Forth."

    Turns out, that WAS him I saw, heading on a train in the other direction to me. (I stashed a few Ozrics cd covers in my bag for the next few days, just in case, but i haven't seen him since.)

    And yes, his son Silas is still making music with him, so he must have relocated too. They do occasional live podcasts from the home studio, and are planning to do a tour next year, playing an electronic set.

    Well, if they've split up, hopefully, that means Ed's got someone else managing his affairs. I seem to recall Brandi was a real pain in the ass to deal with, if you were inclined to do business with Ozrics.

    I'm not sure why there'd be legal issues with the band name, since it was Ed's band to begin with, long before Brandi became involved.

    Clearly you haven't read many Yes-related threads.
    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    He was already divorced when he released it.

    Probably there aren't, as in 2020 he has also released a new album as Ozric Tentacles.

    Sorry to say that Kscope is out of the new box already. Hopefully they get more.
    I will post here again as soon as I hear something.

    Hi Guys

    My copy of the set arrived a couple of days ago, and I've now published a blog review, offering some thoughts on the new remastering and the new packaging, compared to the 2013 release.

    ^^^ Good review! I've just tracked down the twofer cds so won't be forking out any more - but I do like those early albums, probably most of all.
