5.0 out of 5 stars Unreleased (WHY?) Gem from the 70's, 14 July 2007
This review is from: Jet Set Jewel (Audio CD)
People are sometimes confused by Jacks solo career after Cream. They should not be his dozen TRUE SOLO albums from 1969 Songs for a Tailor to 2003 More Jack than God are totally consistent. Brilliant Songs written with Master Wordsmith Pete Brown, world class musicians and of course that famous voice and bass.

The Confusion has arisen with his Non Solo collaborative works which cover everything from Free Jazz, the avant garde to Hard Rock. Although they have their moments of genius to,these are really for the devotees. Anything with Jacks name alone on the sleeve is a true gem.

This one dates from 1978 and features his then current touring band of Simon Philips , Tony Hymas & Hughie Burns. Tighter than the previous years Hows Tricks set (They had been touring for 18 months)As has been said songs on here have appeared on other Jack Cds in the intervening 25 years, but it is unfair to say these originals are inferior. And I've seen him play SIX out of these ten tracks live, so the previous reviewer needs to see more live Jack, as Jack obviously rates this album. Another Solo Masterpiece.

Get them all: Songs for a tailor,Harmony Row,Out of the Storm,Hows Tricks, I've always wanted to do this, Automatic, Somethin' Els, Deserted Cities Live,Monkjack, Shadows in the Air & More Jack than God. The quality control NEVER slips.
