Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the first album from Love Sculpture, the Welsh blues rock trio famous for Dave Edmonds and Sabre Dance. Also present are their singles from the period (one issued under the name 'the Human Beans'). The band had apparently experimented with a few styles of music in the search of commercial success, before settling on the blues and recording this. If the story in the liner notes is true, and the trio had pretty much never even heard of the blues before walking into the recording studio then I am incredibly impressed, as this comes across as a loving tribute to well known songs, put together by talented musicians with a real feel for the music.

The album starts off with the Stumble - a blistering guitar workout that gave us our first introduction to the guitar hero that is Dave Edmonds. It's a killer opener track, better than Pete Green's version on John Mayall's 'Hard Road' album. As a huge fan of Greeney, coming from me that is incredibly high praise.

The album then works it's way through a series of blues standards - BB King's '3O'clock blues', Howling Wolf's 'Wand Dang Doodle', 'Summertime', and a bit of Elmore James in a masterful version of 'Shake your hips'.

The tracks rock, the vocals are excellent (especially on 'Summertime'), and the musicianship is superb. An album that often finds itself in my CD player, it's real good foot tapping music. It does exactly what it says on the tin - delivers a helping of classic blues.

The singles are interesting for the completist, but I feel add little to the album. However, along with Esoteric's release of their second album (Forms and Feelings) this gives you Love Sculpture's complete recorded output.

Ok, it is a great reissue but the collectors have to know that they can find the last 4 tracks also on the LP "The Dave Edmunds & Love Scolpture Singles A's & B's"

Never does an Album normally open with such a great track,Got this as an L.P. years ago, (only available as MONO) and was amazed at the Guitar sounds that Dave Edmunds produced,now in stereo sounds even better,some of the other tracks are very good especially if you like the sound of good Guitar playing.

Alvin Lee the Fastest Guitar in the West? Ten Years After the most exiting band ever? Well, they were for me until I saw Dave Edmund's Love Sculpture no less than 4 times in various Swansea University gigs, the Swansea Top Rank (yes, really) and the world famous Skewen Ritz (Filmore East eat your heart out) circa 1969/70. Unbelievable guitar playing and music that was so frantic that I couldn't keep up with my foxtrot. I couldn't get enough of them live. So when I eagerly bought their fist album I was expecting something to rival Cream. But it wasn't. Good though the album may be if you come to Love Sculpture cold, for me it was an anti-climax that conveys nothing - absolutely nothing - of their live performances. If only they had made a live album. And why did Dave Edmunds turn to the "Pontypridd Sound" 50's style rock & roll after leaving Love Sculpture? What a disappointment that was.
