Originally released on Harvest SHSP 4017 in March 1972, "The Only Lick I Know" is not a great album (his lone hit with Mickie Most's RAK Records "Motor Bikin" was a full 3 years away).
Sheffield-born Spedding sessioned with Nucleus, Leslie Duncan, Elton John, Linda Hoyle [of the Vertigo act Affinity], the Free spin-off group The Sharks - but little on this album shows any fire and having a truly bland voice didn't help either. One of the better tracks is "Don't Leave Me" which features backing vocals from LINDA LEWIS - a sort of funky rock workout. The title track is not bad either, but his vocals are awful.
The 3-way foldout inlay has liner notes by MARK BRENNAN and the sound is very good throughout. Shame the material is so weak.
Try to hear first before you buy - one to avoid I'm afraid...
