Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After recording two excellent blues albums with disappointing sales figures, Long John Baldry was desperate for a hit. He changed labels and started to record a `poppier' repertoire. This had the desired effect, with the smash hit `let the heartaches begin'. He stayed with the label for three years, before returning to his first love the blues, with 1970's critically acclaimed `It Ain't Easy'.

Baldry's voice was a magnificent instrument. Suited for blues, soul, gospel and crooning, he could turn it to almost anything, and does so to magnificent effect here. As well as the marvellous `Heartaches', he works his way through a set of hits of the day, such as Cream's `Sunshine Of our Love', Ike and Tina Turner's `River Deep' and Richard Harris' `McArthur Park'. Each is given his distinctive treatment. There is also a series of originals, and a few offbeat fun tracks (such as `Henry Hannah's 42nd street parking lot'). This is an excellent collection of great pop tunes from the late sixties, and a great addition to any music lover's collection.

The sound quality here is pretty decent, with a nice clear sound. The collection collects all the trackes recorded for Pye between '67 and '70, including a few interesting unreleased odds and ends. Liner notes are extensive and interesting.

If you like this then check out `Looking At Long John Baldry, The UA Years', which collects together his earlier blues recordings, and `It Ain't Easy', his 1970 amazing return to the blues.

An excellent collection of some excellent music, 5 stars.

Amazing is all I can say really - the sheer number of tracks on two discs is real value here - but above all else, a REAL singer and sadly no longer with us but this album at least gives an insight into a real talent..

If you want to sit down, be entertained, then look no further - just sit back and ENJOY, realise what singing is all about from a real artist

This album is not what I was expecting, I was brought up on Baldry's blues recordings and the tracks here were a total relevation to me. Some really good versions of great songs, delivered with that very distinctive voice. Altogether a well worthwhile album and superb value for money.

Definately the greatest of the 60's balladiers.Better and cooler than Scott Walker. This album is Baldry at his mod best. Loads of fantastically orchistrated uplifting tunes delivered with LJB's unmistakable tones. Buy it and enjoy.

I think this is one of the better albums I have purchased recently. I have been a Baldry fan for years but only lately found this album thanks to Amazon. I find it easy to listen to and a blast from the past.

This CD arrived in good time and in good condition. This CD takes me back to some rare 1960s tracks.
