"Missing Period" is the reissue of a compilation of unreleased recordings from the period 1975-1976, that is to say before the release of the debut album "Unorthodox Behaviour."  Children of Miles Davis were at this time already created their group, they are also in place ( Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, Return To Forever ) and the electric jazz no longer scandal since the early 70's. It is in this context that landed an English band with a drummer already well known by the name of Phil Collins . Musically, Brand X has nothing to envy to other formations of jazz-rock of the era. There aa beautiful less mystical than the Mahavishnu Orchestra , under World-music as Weather Report , it is as technical as Return To Forever .Their music develops very accessible jazzy theme (too say their critics) and guitar John Goodsall sometimes recalls the sound and the particular set of Santana (listen to "Ancient Mysteries").
That there are interesting with Brand X , is his ability to master a variable tempo from one song to another and especially a musical sequence to another while still falling back on its feet. The musicians enjoyed playing together and it shows. We can appreciate the desire to Phil Collins to flourish as a drummer with the training while continuing adventure Genesis in parallel during this period.
Far from being a collection of demo, "Missing Period" brings to light training a bit overshadowed by those that are sometimes called children of Miles Davis with a collection of songs that, without great originality, dépareilleront not at all good lovers of jazz-rock.
