Product Description

* The first album by Californian blues-rock legends, Pacific Gas and Electric, reissued for the first time and enhanced by the addition of almost three quarters of an hour's worth of previously unissued material from the album sessions.

* Reissued with the approval and complete co-operation of the surviving members of PG & E, this deluxe edition also features many previously unpublished shots of the band performing at late 60s music festivals and a sleeve note that draws on the reminiscences of key PG & E members Brent Block and Frank Cook.

* The PG & E website has been `trailing' the release of this set for almost a year - which is how long it's been in the making - and demand for recent CD reissues of their subsequent Columbia albums indicates that there'll be strong sales for the hardest to find of all their original albums and the one that's been out of print for the longest time.

* This raw and exciting electric blues still shows exactly why PG & E were one of the most highly rated - and still among the best remembered - groups of their era.

A Classic Re-born 8 Nov. 2008
By C. Merganz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this album on Vinyl when it first came out back in New Jersey and it's great to see it on CD in a deluxe edition with the Bonus tracks.Back then there was SO much good music coming out it was easy for a band to get overlooked.But from the first bars of "Wade in the Water" you KNEW it was something special!It was one of the albums that sent people looking for the original versions of the tunes.It's nice to see the alternate takes and "Wade in the Water" without the overdubs( ala the latest Edition of the Classic "Super Session" Album)The band's arrangements of the tunes were inventive and got your feet a Tappin' and your hands a Clappin'.It's worth your while to check out All PG&E's work.You won't be dissapointed.

Guitar Glenn! 22 Jun. 2008
By Carl B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Schwartz's tone on "Dirty Mistreater" is simply stellar! Glenn still plays weekly in Cleveland and is truly one of the best living guitar players. He can go toe to toe with anyone. He really is a legit guitar God, but without the widespread fame. Check this release out though. The quality is good and there are some great blues guitar licks throughout!

I've been waiting 11 July 2008
By John Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've waited years for this to come out on CD. This was always one of my favorite LP's and I thought it would never be re-released. Cry Cry Cry and Jelly Jelly are two of my favorite versions of these blues classics.
Great guitar and vocals.

been looking for this for 30 years 9 April 2009
By Mike Kolasinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
get it on is an absolute masterpiece of what was then the neo-blues -alot of bands in the 60s started as blues bands-playing old blues standards with massive volume enthusiasm and attitude. I along with a whole generation were blown away by Beck Clapton and Page and Hendrix plus all the san francisco bands -bare with me -PG&E was one of the lesser known bands -but they could hang with the best of them.Most of my fondest memories of them was them tearing the roof off the Golden Bear in huntington beach.Guitarist Glen Schwartz s attack was so intense he was constantly busting strings in the middle of solos,but not missing a beat-my vinyl of this album has been lost for decades-one of the best re-releases ever-give it a listen-you wont regret it-thanks for listening to an old geezer who still loves blazin rock

A Great Reissue 24 May 2008
By Eliminator Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I always enjoyed the Are You Ready LP and spent a few years with it on my list before I finally came across it somewhere on CD. I thought this band had just been forgotten by the world and it was a shamw.

I must have ordered this one the first week it came out. I could see all the blues covers, so I figured and hoped it would have a lot of Glenn Schwartz. I was a little worried about how the sound quality would be. Have no fear, this sounds great, nice and clean, lots of highs and lows in the mix. There is a ton of Glenn to enjoy. Right now I'm liking it more than Are You Ready, but I just got it today. Are You Ready has some nicely produced variations on the blues format, where this is more straight ahead, liver sounding, with lots of great covers. There is no slippage in the bonus material either. It is mostly alternate takes with different solos and a couple songs not on the original album This album is totally worth it. Thanks to everyone involved.
