This is the official re-release on vinyl under licensed courtesy of BMG Rights Management, UK, remastered from an original master copy out of the vaults of BMG, originally released in 1972 on Transatlantic progressive rock label Dawn.

JONESY were an early 70’s progressive rock outfit whose albums were reputedly delicate, melodic affairs, somewhat similar to King Crimson and with a lot of mellotrons V.Joynson, Tapestry of Delights).

They recorded three albums on the Dawn Label “No Alternative“, “Keeping Up” and “Growing” (all now newly reissued on vinyl by Long Hair). All are strong with the aforementioned KING CRIMSON influences.

The music is very British sounding and holds similarities to other bands of the day, apart from King Crimson to name a few Tonton Mocoute, Ben, Spring and others in that field. The really heavy use of mellotron gives the music that particular sound of early prog. Just like Spring, Jonesy makes emotive prog which is both epic and melodious.

All three album are great stuff! The interplay between the mellotron and fuzzed out and sometimes screaming guitar is excellent and bridges the early progressive rock with the early type of hard rock, making it heavy and complex. While the album generally is very much on the hard rock side of things, there are mellow exceptions such as the gorgous “Heaven” and “Pollution”. These are epic, long tracks with beautiful mellotron and very emotive soundscapes. The track “Ricochet”, also released as a single (B-side is bonustrack), is a tremendous rockin’ track. Really rough, crude and blessed with wah-wah guitar. No Alternative is an excellent diversified debut you want to hear again and again!

It’s a fine slice of strangely – undervalued prog from a finely-tuned British outfit. Albums comes with 2 bonus tracks and comprehensive band story. All tracks are remastered. Don’t miss this high quality album! Limited Edition!
