Mother of "The Son Of Gutbucket" I posted earlier. Both released 1969 with more or less contemporary Liberty/Minit recordings. But while the follow-up concentrated on psych and arty stuff - like Idle Race, High Tide, Roy Haper and T.I.D.E. - this is more or less a black and white blues sampler. Exceptions would be Hapshash & The Coloured Coat "The Wall" and Bonzo Dog Band's parody "Can Blue Men Sing The Whites", but the rest is serious genre stuff of high quality and most of it very hard to get on original vinyl today. The audio is superb all through fitting for close listening as well as background to joyful moments. Having a hard time to pick favorites cause it all sticks together so well, but if I have to - Captain Beefheart "Gimme Dat Harp Boy", The Hour Glass "Down In Texas" and Jo-Anne Kelly "Rollin' And Tumblin". Weighing in factors like track rarity, musical quality and audio this is one of the good guys. Recommended not only to blues fans, but music loving vinyl freaks in general. Also issued in Germany as 10 track with differing song choices (Liberty LBS 83258 X). First UK had label as shown here and thin laminated cover. (SÄM*) (XLÄ*)
