To mark the 20th anniversary of the founding of Spirit Level, pianist Tim Richards has not only written a typically vigorous, wide-ranging suite for the nonet Great Spirit, but also chosen a superb bunch of highlights from five albums made between 1982 and 1990 – a great introduction to the work of one of the UK’s gutsiest, most enjoyable bands.
