Sliding Gliding Worlds (also known as "the blue one") is the fifth of Ozric Tentacles' first six independent releases on cassette, each one with a different background color. Released by the band in 1988, it was reissued on CD by Dovetail Records in 1994. Crunchy riffs are few (only "Kick Muck" represents the Hawkwind side of the band) and the whole thing falls into a pleasant trippy mid-tempo pace. Ed Wynne's writing is more melodious and less jam-oriented.
2LP Heavyweight Vinyl The classic album from the much loved Vitamin Enhanced box set of the band's six early cassette release Re-mastered and on LP for the very first time in its original content.
Only for completionists (4%). Really not much can be said about SLIDING GLIDING WORLDS that can't be applied to the entire 80s run of cassette-only releases. For the most part they are practically indistinguishable by the time they get to album number five as the beats, tempos and timbres are familiar territory however OZRIC TENTACLES still retains their very own distinct sound that they are slowly refining with more world music influences
