"Due to popular demand, we are reissuing the fantastic Jade album with another extra track in improved packaging. Jade was one of the most popular UK folk/rock bands of the early 1970s evolving from folk duo Marianne Segal and Dave Waite (see their Paper Flowers album Light Flash CD 002) Under the guidance of producer Jon Miller the duo became Jade, with the addition of keyboardist/bassist and arranger Rod Edwards. In 1970 they recorded their sole album and singles with a the help of a glittering array of talent including Pete Sears (Les Fleur De Lys, Sam Gopal's Dream, Jefferson Starship) John Wetton (King Crimson, Family) Terry Cox (Pentangle) Jimmy Litherland (Colosseum) Michael Rosen (Eclection, Fotheringay) Clem Cattini (Rumplestiltskin, The Ivy League) Pete York (Spencer Davis Group, Hardin and York) and Mick Waller (Rod Stewart). Fly On Strangewings was released in 1970 and it received rave reviews and comparisons to Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention. Now over 30 years later, Jade's sole album is regarded as one of the best albums of the '70's UK folk rock movement. and it ranks along with The Tree's On The Shore and Mellow Candle's Swaddling Songs as one of the great underground albums of the era. MOJO magazine voted it as one of the top ten UK folk rock albums of the '70s along with Fairport Convention's Leige and Leaf. Now at last it is widely available to be afforded the classic status it deserves. Lightning Tree Records are proud to announce the deluxe edition of Jade's Fly On Strangewings with the addition of three previously unreleased bonus tracks and U.S. radio adverts."
