Product Description

In the early 90 s PHIL MAY and DICK TAYLOR of the truly amazing Pretty Things Teamed up with members one of the Yardbirds in Chicago to record a set of the sort of material that inspired both bands to form in the early 60 s. This collection includes Time Is On My Side , A nod to Dick Taylors brief membership of the Rolling Stones. Amazingly both bands continue to record and tour today. Previously released amazingly over 20 years ago on Demon, this set has been unavailable for some time. We have re packaged and re mastered this set and present it at MID PRICE.

Excellent Retro Blues! 18 July 2002
By deepbluereview - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Take a Studebaker add a couple of Pretty Things, a drop of YardBird, a little Canned Heat and throw in some Chicago Southside Sisters and you get Chicago Blues with a strong under currant of English flavor.
On this disc, vocalist Phil May and guitarist Dick Taylor of the English band the Pretty Things got together in 1991 with Yardbird drummer Jim McCarty, Canned Heat bassist Richard Hite and Chicago's Studebaker John on rhythm guitar for a rockin' night of raw blues. The band doesn't perform anything new on the disc, sticking to covers of Bo Diddley, Elmore James, Jimmy Reed and others. But the performance is nothing short of excellent. The vocals of Phil May are top notch and Taylor's guitar screams and cries like he was born and lived his entire life in the blues club of Chicago. The backgound beat of McCarty's drums are locked tightly with Hite's base and compliments Studebakers guitar and harp to form an almost perfect back drop from which May and Taylor work their magic. If, and that's a big if, there is a weak spot on this disc, it would have to be "Time Is On My Side" which just doesn't quite seem to fit with the rest of the tracks. Overall, it's raw, totally unrefined and in everyway near perfect.

back to the roots 13 Oct. 2007
By . - Published on
Format: Audio CD
These guys sound to me like I imagine the Stones would've sounded if they never ''made it" ,and just went on playing the music they loved, blues. Dick Taylor, the guitarist who originally played with Mick and Keith,(Mick in '57, Keith in '60, the three together in '61) is the guitarist here, (he left the Stones because he didn't want to make a permanent switch to bass to play with Keith and Brian.

A first rate blues rocker! 20 April 2005
By Russell Garrett - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Take 2 Pretty Things, one Yardbird, one member of Canned Heat, shake well and what do you get? One heck of a blues-rocker! London R&B meets Chicago Blues. You'll dig it.
Phil May Rules, OK? 28 Jun. 2010
By Mr. Mambo - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I don't know where I've been for twenty years! I missed this release when it came out. It is a blues classic. Get it for no other reason to listen to the absolutely fabulous vocals by Phil May, guitar by Dick Taylor and harp by Studebaker John. I've played harp for forty-five years, and have listened to all the great amped harp players, and the blowing on this recording is nothing short of fantastic: so fluid, so powerful, so effortless. SJ is at the top of his game here. Oh, and the rest of the band is wonderful, too! It is a crime that this record is unavailable or so danged rare/expensive. It should be released immediately. It puts to shame most of the blues that is out there.
Song Titles Incorrect 5 April 2012
By Bugger Bill - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a great album, however, there is not a "Don't Start Cryin' Now (Part 2)". The track/time listings are correct up thru Track 7 "Time Is On My Side". Track 8 is not "Long Tall Shorty"; it is "Scratch My Back" @ 4:49. Install "Scratch My Back" after "Time Is On My Side", then continue on with "Long Tall Shorty" thru "Don't Start Cryin' Now", leaving the song times as are, that is, do not advance the times with the titles. Delete "Don't Start Cryin' Now (Part 2)", thus Track 15 will end up as "Don't Start Cryin' Now" @ 2:15. Bottom line...This disc does not have an unreleased "Don't Start Cryin' Now (Part 2)"!!! Bugger Bill.
