So far I have read only misleading reviews of this album, mostly inferring that 'Ahead Rings Out ' is the better of Blodwyn's offerings (obviously penned by fans with a Blues bias).
Anyway, someone, somewhere, is obviously missing the plot...
'Getting To This' has to be one of the most innovative and creative products of the Underground Revolution, and yes, I say Underground with pride, as opposed to it's contrived 'Prog Rock' and 'Heavy Metal' dirivatives.
So yes, I am an old tosspot, but one who still has enough marbles to treasure the golden age of true British Pop creativity and originality, and nothing epitomises these attributes more so than this album from Mick Abrahams and Co.
Unforgettable songs, riffs and groundbreaking saxophony take this album far away from any other work of its time - listen to San Francisco Sketches a few times and you'll begin to break the surface. 'See My Way' sums up all the driving beat and thuddery that is uniquely Blodwyn - equalled only by the wonderful 'Sing Me A Song That I Know' from the 'Ahead' album.
I'm not claiming this is the best album of all time, but as an Icon of it's era, it's the business, and as invigorating, punchy and uplifting today as it ever was.
As for you Blues reviewers, just stick to the Blues.... man.

This album is the second from underrated late sixties British ensemble Blodwyn Pig. Their first album, the mighty `Ahead Rings Out', was an exemplar of British blues based music at the time. For their second album the band expanded their musical palette and influences to include strong jazz overtones and large slices of San Francisco hippiedom, which gives this album a unique British hippie/prog feel.

This is a deep and complex album, not as instantly accessible as their first, but rewarding if you make the effort. It is a fine example of the British music of the time, synthesising all the various influences into a coherent whole. It is similar to the work of Keef Hartley or Jethro Tull, but with a more laid back flower power feel. A great buy.

Previously,I've heard one or two tracks from this album as downloads.
Been looking for this album for a while and now I've got it.
TBH,I've often been apprehensive about buying albums on the strength of one or two tracks but that melted away as the album played through.
I would recommend this album to anyone into blues-rock,Welsh rock or discovering
Blodwyn pig for the first time.
For me,the stand-out track would be WORRY with SEND YOUR SON TO DIE a damned
close second.
Excellent!
