5.0 out of 5 stars Long Lovin' Album 15 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
Being a Stafford boy, The Climax Blues Band was one of those bands which everyone had heard of but very few had actually listened to. As a spotty teenager in the early 80s I managed to borrow this LP from a friend and tape it (Oh the shame!!!). The tape got played to death. Recently I tracked this album down on Amazon and simply had to buy it.

There is not a bum track on this album. It opens with 'Country Hat' an excellent piece of slide guitar - a lot of bottle! 'Everyday' is a blues number with a with a forceful but laid back rhythm under pinned by a strong bass guitar presence. 'Reap what I have sowed' has a gritty rhythm with an excellent guitar solo section. 'Brief Case' is an instrumental which introduces the band's horns - effortlessly working with the guitars. 'Alright Blue' is another instrumental featuring a blues harp which you can't help but tap your foot along too. 'Seventh Son' has atmosphere with a great bass line, leading into a faster tempo section with excellent guitar work. 'Please Don't Help' is another great track in its own right leading into the more humourous 'Mooring Noon and Night'. 'Long Lovin' Man' is an equally humourous track. 'Lousianna Blues' is wonderfully crafted as is 'Cut You Loose' with its organ, horns and guitar solos. 'Lovin' Machine' is a great raunchy number with its guiar work - very 70s.

All the tracks are well crafted with their own identity and clear vocals. I find the whole album so uplifting - I recently caught my 5 year old bopping along to it! I've currently got this album in the CD changer of my car. I can see it being the sound of summer 2008.

I apologise for taping the LP in the first place. Hopefully, with the fact that I have got around to buying it on CD and writing this review, I am finally forgiven. In short buy this CD. You will not regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A TRUE CLASSIC 31 Aug 2013
By Leni
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Many will not have heard of this blues/rock band, I became a fan back when this album was released way back when, don,t know why it has taken me so long to buy it on CD, the most popular track on here, REAP WHAT I,VE SOWED still remains my all time favourite, with the bonus of the said track being added live as an added feature, but this really is a classic album so no duff tracks if you like rock,blues/rock or blues I recommend you give this whole album a listen, once you have I am sure you will buy it, for me this is the CLIMAX BLUES BAND at there best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware!! 28 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
Great to see these albums reissued! Shame that the track listing is wrong...it appears that someone screwed up and put "Who killed McSwiggin" on as a bonus track instead of Spoonful!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My old freinds 11 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is probably a cheat in that I personally knew some of the Band being from Stafford and having been at school with Pete Haycock. My old vinyl had become very noisy so it was really a pleasure to hear the pristine tracks again. Having seen most of them performed live at one time or another bought back some great memories

5.0 out of 5 stars BLUES/ROCK AT ITS BEST 24 Nov 2000
By Noel Proffitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In 1970 Climax blues band were influenced by the old Chicago blues players. They took those influences and wrote some major tunes adding their form of rock to the blues. Peter Haycocks slide playing on this CD is awesome! Colin Coopers vocal work can get down and vibirate your bass speakers! The tracks "Everyday" &"Reap what Ive sowed" are my personal favorites. However every one of these tracks are worth every penny! Take My word if you are a blues/rock fan you wont be disappointed.N.P.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great, great band 14 Mar 2005
By T. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was fortunate to see CBB a couple of times in the early '70s. I maintain to this day that Peter Haycock is one of the finest (and most overlooked) blues guitarists in the world. As far as 'A Lot of Bottle', well, this is my favorite CBB album followed closely by 'Tightly Knit'. (By the way, this album was simply called 'Climax Blues Band' when I was wearing the record out in college, circa 1972. It had a brown cover with an old man playing a high-hat.)

There are several bonus tracks ('Morning, Noon, and Night', 'Long Lovin Man', and 'Loving Machine') which are okay but don't really add much, in my opinion. One big problem: one of the best songs on the album was omitted from the CD. 'Like Uncle Charlie' was left off the CD, but guess what? - - the song does turn up on the 'Rich Man' CD as a bonus track! Odd....

More to the point, 'A Lot of Bottle' is absolutely great (even without 'Like Uncle Charlie') and I recommend it in the highest terms possible. Modern blues at its very best. You will savor this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the British Blues 18 May 1999
By Robert Carlberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is my personal favorite of all the CBB albums, combining soulful slide guitar with deep-voiced blues vocals. There's a nice mix between vocals and instrumentals. The original tunes are catchy and the covers ("Seventh Son") are truly inspired. Pete Haycock plays scorching guitar and the whole band is tight, masterful, and very hip.
I love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars It changed my life. 15 Dec 2001
By brian kersten - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Quite possibly the greatest album of all time. I'm sorry but 5 stars is just not enough for this goldmine of ground-breaking sonic oomph. Loud distortion lathered guitars, at least 15 years ahead of thier time, blend with simple, yet perfectly written and executed vocals. After listening to this album for fifteen years it still never fails to blow my freakin mind with its excellence.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Sad World We live in! 19 Jun 2007
By Manfred K.J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Climax Blues Band were Truely, Without a Doubt, one of THE MOST OVER-LOOKED and UNDER-RATED Bands of SEVENTIES!!!..( and EIGHTIES, for that matter!) They were ahead of their Time! Positive BLUES! It's a Sad World when "the Media" focuses SO MUCH Attention on a "Rich Bitch" like that Hilton Skank!
