Live At The BBC
"Gary Boyle formed the jazz-rock band, Isotope, in 1973, recruiting three other stalwarts from the jazz field; Nigel Morris, Brian Miller & Jeff Clyne (ex Nucleus). Gary and Nigel had previously been part of Stomu Yamash'ta's band, East Wind. Prior to that, Gary had worked with Dusty Springfield, Brian Auger & Julie Driscoll. Isotope released three albums during the mid '70s, which gained wide acclaim and favourable comparisons with John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra. Following the demise of Isotope, Gary Boyle pursued a solo career and his debut album, The Dancer, won the 1978 Montreux Jazz/Pop Award. This compilation is comprised of an Isotope BBC concert and an Old Grey Whistle Test show, plus a Gary Boyle session recorded for John Peel. None of these recordings have ever been released before. The accompanying 8-page booklet includes a brief note from Gary Boyle plus extensive liner notes, including an interview with Gary, and several rare band photographs."
