4.0 out of 5 stars CORRECTION, 8 Nov 2007
This review is from: The Sound of '65/There's a Bond Between Us (Audio CD)
NOTHING TO ADD TO PREVIOUS REVIEWS AND AGREE THAT THESE ARE GREAT ALBUMS. WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY THAT I KNEW AND WORKED WITH GRAHAM BOND AND THERE IS NO EVIDENCE HE COMMITTED SUICIDE AS THE PREVIOUS REVIEWER SAYS. AS FAR AS I REMEMBER THE VERDICT OF THE INQUEST WAS EITHER 'MISADVENTURE' OR MORE LIKELY 'OPEN VERDICT'. FINSBURY PARK TUBE STATION WHERE HE DIED GETS VERY BUSY IN THE RUSH HOUR AND IT IS INFINITELY POSSIBLE HE WAS SIMPLY BUSTLED OFF THE PLATFORM.

AT THE TIME OF HIS DEATH HE WAS GETTING HIS ACT BACK TOGETHER AND ACCORDING TO SOME SOURCES HAD BEEN CLEAN OF HEROIN FOR SOME TIME. IT SEEMS STRANGE THAT HE WOULD CHOOSE SUCH A TIME TO END HIS LIFE.

THAT GRAHAM BOND WAS A VERY TALENTED MUSICIAN WITH MANY DEMONS IS BEYOND DOUBT. HIS MUSIC DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE OVERLOOKED AND MOST OF THE ALBUMS ON AMAZON ARE WORTH CHECKING OUT. GRAHAM WAS GREAT COMPANY WHEN HE WAS ON FORM AND MUSICALLY, WHEN HE WAS GOOD HE WAS VERY, VERY GOOD INDEED.

I would concur with the above remarks. I also knew Graham well and it is maddening to read negative remarks about him in books etc.Graham was indeed getting back on track. Few people know what a generous man he was both musically and in other ways.He showed me a transcript of a book he was writing exposing some of the more unsavoury/shocking practices of the music industry. It is an outrage that he is not given the full credit he deserves. Graham was not a saint but was one of the Godfathers of British blues.

Thanks for this information, I got into Graham Bond because of the occult connection, I love rhythm and blues/jazz/psychedelia, grew up in the 60s but teenage years were the late 70s and I was a Punk. I always thought that his death didn't make sense, I've listened to the Magick albums many times and he doesn't sound depressed, quite the opposite, he sounds like someone who was going through a major musical/spiritual renaissance. Many thanks.
