Terry Reid might be casually famous for supposedly declined a gig singing for Led Zeppelin, but in reality, he was the guy who connected Jimmy Page with the then-unknown Robert Plant and John Bonham, which actually seems far more historic. The important thing, though, is that he could’ve easily fronted Zeppelin (or Deep Purple, who also asked) because he was just that good — an English rock & roll lifer-slash-prodigy who developed into a fire-starting guitarist and vocalist, and whose limitlessly ambitious solo LPs still throw off sparks today. His cult-y 1973 album River, a stretched-out journey to the horizon, had its never-issued twin, The Other Side of the River, finally see release through Light in the Attic last year, and his too-rare live sets transmit plenty of his undiminished magic.
