Apparently The Enid have had their CDs re-released with the original artwork, as I only ever had the CDs I guess I don't know any better! The more important reason for this topic however is just to make sure they get one, as they are the only prog-rock act I'm really into, although I like Genesis/Peter Gabriel & Marillion. If you like prog-rock/EM I'd highly recomend The Spell.

High level progrock (almost classical) and imo underestimated (fortunately) The Enid can be considered to be the only real "Rock Orchestra"

I purchased the Spell and a few others a long time ago (the times we did not play our favourite music from mp3 or CD but from vinyl and tape)

After all these years still a great band !

I still really dig the enid, I probably always will. Some great memories of seeing them live that will never fade. "Six Pieces" and "Touch Me" are my favourites

are these new reissues the original recordings? I thing some of the previous ones had some re-recorded parts.

A special one off concert featuring the full "Bruckner" brass and percussion of The Chandos Symphony Orchestra plus the great Victorian Pipe Organ now newly refurbished.

My first band recorded in their studio. Great place. A farmhouse in the UK with some cool gear. I think I was 18.

In the autumn I was going to see The Enid in Leamington Spa, some 26
years since I last saw the band at an open-air concert under the summer
stars. Unfortunately, ill health prevented me going. It's a intimate venue,
with lovely decorations in keeping with the classical style of the band.

I'd welcome recommendations of good Enid recordings since the mid-1980s.

Thanks for the news of the Birmingham event.

I remember seeing The Enid at the Marquee in London, I guess it would have been the early or mid-'eighties. The guitarists (Steve Stewart, I think) was off his face, but still played great. RJG orchestrated the whole thing like a classical conductor. An amazing night.
