This CD was originally released as the vinyl 'Bye Bye Blues', a recording of what was to have been the last two gigs from the Blues Band back in 1982 at Victoria's 'The Venue' (which later became Bigun's Ribs Restaurant!). Yes, I was there - it was my first Blues Band gig, so you can imagine my pleasure when they later re-formed (and now, 25 years after their first concert, are still going strong). This recording captures the band at its youthful energetic best, with some wonderful renditions (especially 'Grits Aint Groceries' and 'Flatfoot Sam'). It's enhanced by some guest performances including a tremendous vocal from the late Joanne Kelly and some driving boogie piano from 'The Sixth Stone', Ian Stewart. The bonus tracks on this version add to the pleasure of listening to this and remembering it "like it was yesterday".
