Ramases Discography of CDs


Glass Top Coffin Glass Top Coffin CD (1975)
CD $26.09 Buy It  Details
Ramases music CDs Three years had elapsed since Space Hymns mesmerized all who encountered it, a period during which Ramases' own career stood still, even as his former backing band went on to glory as 10cc. Indeed, it was the reflection of their fame that brought Glass Top Coffin the media attention it did receive, although few listeners lured in by the link would have been expecting this. A very different album from its predecessor (despite packaging in an equally captivating sleeve), Glass Top Coffin relies on orchestration for its punch, conjuring images of a downbeat Moody Blues as Ramases and Sel trade vocals across some almost heartstoppingly melancholic pastures -- "Long Long Time" and "Only the Loneliest Feeling" paramount among them. But there are also moments of spellbinding joy -- the duet between the Mona Lisa (yes, the painting) and an onlooker trying to solve the riddle of her expression ("Mona Lisa Now") is magnificent, while the mantric "Stepping Stones" harks back to the proggier elements of Space Hymns, without losing sight of the distance between them. Balancing these jewels are a couple of songs that, in any other hands, could be construed as sure-fire commercial hits -- the punchy "Sweet Reason" and the flowing "Saler Man," while the title track seems to take every instinct that was bottled up elsewhere on the album and unleashed it in one breathtaking roar. It is this variety and versatility that still holds Glass Top Coffin in good stead today -- unlike Space Hymns, it has scarcely dated, and the greatest regret is that there would never be a follow-up. ~ Dave Thompson Digitally remastered edition of this 1975 album from Ramases, the duo consisting of Ramases (Martin Raphael) and his wife Sel. They first came to prominence with the release of the album Space Hymns in 1971. The Glass Top Coffin project took several years to write, and Ramases' vision of an inter-galactic concept finally appeared in an elaborate sleeve. The sessions saw contributions from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra and was arguably the most fully realized of the two Ramases albums. This edition restores the original album artwork. Esoteric. ...

Ramases discography Although Ramases' debut album is best known today for featuring the infant 10cc as accompanying musicians (the 1990 Repertoire reissue even flags their involvement on the front cover), it is, in fact, deserving of considerably more attention than even that merits. Insistent, percolating rhythms float across a lightly funky soundscape, building with an intensity that ebbs and flows with every track and begging comparison with some of the other, darker folk devils that danced around the fringes of the early-'70s British underground. Comus, Gravy Train, and Dr. Strangely Strange all inhabit similar musical caverns, even as they strained toward new peaks of uniqueness, and Ramases shares that ambition -- and occasionally even surpasses it. The opening "Lifechild" sets the scene, one of two songs (the other is "Balloon," later in the set) that all but strap you aboard the spacecraft blasting off from Roger Dean's excellent sleeve design. From there, the journey does occasionally stray into territory that ...
