5.0 out of 5 stars Legend, 19 Oct 2004
This guy has influenced EVERYBODY. Either directly or indirectly - all those great acts and guitarists - Cream, Zeppelin, etc
Even up to the modern day with acts such as the 22-20s.
You can see why on this summary-album.
Despite this guy having been discovered very late & being dead a couple of years later, he recorded a lot of material - all of which is outstanding.
- Buy this album... maybe you'll be influenced?

They're kinda like the white stripes but their songs seem to be more underground (probably due to the amount that they stick to tradition). They never intended to make it big really, just to play a few gigs during the winter season, then work on a farm together during the hotter months - due to the outstanding talent and taste on display, however, fate gave them a hand.
I absolutely cannot wait to see this band at Shepherds Bush Empire in a few weeks... Gonna be one of the best gigs I've been to I'm sure.
By the way, check out the other two… Read more

Sweeden aparently. Like many other people, I first heard these guys on a computer game (FIFA 2004) - the song "Jerk it Out" was an instant hit with me, a kindof 60's organ based rock sound - "EXCELLENT!" I thought, so I read a couple of mixed reviews and decided to chance it.
39 Minutes of Bliss is basically true, it really is a good album of instant classics "showers" and songs that you eventually love after a few plays "growers". The album is practically split into these - the first half being the showers.
I simply cannot believe that an ace act hasn't had much promotion in the UK, im sure most Brits with a taste for quality rock would love this album and love to see them live… Read more
