If you've never bought a Blues Band CD then this is the place to start. It's right at the band's musical beginning, you get studio and live together, and best of all it's two great albums for the price of one. I know blues is an emotional expression of life's sorrows, and that's there of course, but you just can sense the band's real joy in getting together to play great music. They can all play, and most people know of Paul Jones and Tom McGuinness, but if you've never discovered Dave Kelly's vocal and slide guitar before then you're missing something. I could point you to more sopisticated later albums (like 'Fat City' and 'Brassed Up') or to blistering live performances (especially on 'Live') but if you want a bit of everything then get this brilliant double. Go on go on go....
