I still remember when I first heard Paul Kossoff's solo album, "Back Street Crawler". A friend called Chris was aware I was a fan of Kossoff's and brought the album round to my house. He knew I'd not heard it, and as we listened to "Tuesday Morning", and the tracks on the other side of the album, he would keep saying, "Oh you'll really like this bit!". He was a bit on the excitable side, and I wasn't going to encourage him too much, so I just said, "Yeah, its pretty good.". In fact the album, and "Tuesday Morning" in particular, grew on me so much that I became fairly obsessive about it, to the extent that I was pretty much convinced it was the best piece of music ever created, or certainly that I'd ever heard. My girlfriend from that time would probably still attest to this, I'm sure.

One undeniable flaw with the album however was its length, or lack of it. I don't remember having an album with a shorter side 1 than "Back Street Crawler" with its sole offering being the admittedly magnificent "Tuesday Morning" which weighed in at only 16 minutes! Side 2 wasn't a lot longer. Well, the good news is that this shortcoming has now been addressed. The expanded album is packed to the gills with material, so the album has moved from one extreme to the other; from frustratingly short to almost exceeding strategic arms limitations in the sheer scale of its endowment.

There are 2 CD's here, and unsurprisingly the first one contains the original album tracks, although now in shiny, remastered form. Actually, I did a bit of a comparison with my various versions of the CD, which include this one, the "original" Island UK CD release, and the recently released Japanese import.

5.0 out of 5 stars His only solo effort 18 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
BSC is Paul's only solo studio effort that was ever released.
After that he played in a band called Back Street Crawler.
Besides the original tracks this two disc contains mostly jams often around the same theme.
For die hard fans of Free this is an absolute must.
Koss remains one of the best guitarists the UK ever produced.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This 1973 recording was a solo effort from guitar genius Paul Kossoff in the period between the breakup of Free, and the formation of his new band Back Street Crawler. As such it features several personnel from Free (including Paul Rodgers on the albums only vocal track). It is clearly Kossoff's own album, allowing him the room to flex his muscles and do his own thing in a way that he could not when constrained Free. The end result is a classic album of blues rock, with some brilliant fiery guitar work from Kossoff. Of especial note is the opening track, the epic 17 minute Tuesday Morning, that somehow never feels tired or stale. It's a veritable classic, an essential purchase not just of Free lovers looking to complete their collection, but for all lovers of classic rock. If I have any complaint it is that the album is too short, a problem fixed in the 2 disc deluxe edition that also has a superior sound quality to previous editions. The inclusion of the re-takes is interesting, and the rendition of Lady Is a Tramp is a bit of a find, but to be honest I do find myself just listening to the first six tracks that comprise the original album more often than not. 4 stars.

My favorite blues rock musician, Joe Bonamassa is inspired of Paul Kossoff. I love this one. A lot of passion. You must listen to "Tuesday Morning Piano Jam".
