This collection of BBC Experience is terrific, and if it gets a bit repetitious in parts, with several versions of the same song, that's OK because the set as a whole is magic.
The energy and inspiration level is evident and the set contains one of the band's all time greatest efforts, Drivin' South. One of the band's few instrumentals, this track (3 versions to choose from) has the propulsive power of a jet engine.
The sound, mastered by Eddie Kramer, is superior to that of the single CD set released many years ago, which avoided duplication but also left out many great takes.
The set finishes with the great Lulu show rebellion, where the band decided to abort Hey Joe and do Sunshine of Your Love instead, on live TV. Apparently the producers had kittens because the show ran over time.
Other gems include Hoochie Coochie Man with Alexis Korner and a jam with Stevie Wonder on drums. The band is firing and the often under-rated support from Mitchell and Redding is first class: one reason this was such a great band.
