Spyglass Guest is the third studio album by British progressive rock band Greenslade, released in 1974.

It was the final recording bassist Tony Reeves made with the group, leaving Greenslade shortly after the LP was completed.

British prog-rock underdogs Greenslade reached their peak with their third album, SPYGLASS GUEST. While the dueling keyboards of Dave Greenslade and Dave Lawson still lead the charge, it's the first Greenslade album to feature guitar (Dave Clem Clempson of Humble Pie), and it's probably the band's most visceral effort. Their trademark balance between arty, fleet-fingered keyboard antics and grittier, more light-hearted tunes is refined here to the point of perfection, making this a lost prog classic.

GREENSLADE's classic third album, "Spyglass Guest" uniquely features guitars with Andy Roberts and Dave "Clem" Clempson (another former COLOSSEUM bandmate) delivering some six-string action. I personally love the first 4 GREENSLADE albums and find each one different and in many ways unique. Spyglass Guest" features the full arsenal of GREENSLADE's keyboards (organs, synths, Mellotron, Calvinet, Glockenspiel, Harmoniums and Tubular Bells) with Lawson's keys and vocals, McCulloch's drums and percussion and Tony Reeves last album (bass). Spyglass Guest was the band's third album, and remains my personal Greenslade favourite. In my opinion, it is every bit as good as the previous two. But, just like those two, it falls short of being more than merely good overall.
