Time and Tide

Time and Tide is the fourth studio album of the British progressive rock band Greenslade, released in 1975 on Warner Bros. Records (Cat No. K 56126). The artwork for the album cover is by Patrick Woodroffe.

The album was released in the US on the Mercury Records label as SRM-1-1025.

An edited version of "Catalan" was released as a single, with "Animal Farm" as the B-side, but it failed to chart.

The track "Gangsters" was used as the theme music for the BBC TV series of the same name. Having written the theme in 1974 for a one-off programme “Gangsters”, in 1976 Dave Greenslade wrote lyrics for the tune. This version was recorded by Chris Farlowe and was used for the last series in 1978. The track was included, as a bonus track, on the CD re-issue of Dave's solo Cactus Choir album.[1]
