Early British Blues,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sound of '65/There's a Bond Between Us (Audio CD)
This is a must have for anyone interested in the early careers of Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker. Graham Bond provided British Blues with its third nursery, along with Alexis Korner and John Mayall and out of his ORGANisation came 2/3 of Cream. The 4th member of the band, Dick Heckstall-Smith went on to join JOhn Mayall on "Bare Wires" and then to Colosseum. The album even has an early version of "Traintime" later heard on Cream's "Wheels of Fire" along with the original version of "Walkin' in the Park" later heard on Colosseum's "Those about to Die" album. Bond's early death robbed us of one of British Blues' early greats. The sound may be a bit wheezy and dated by today's production standards but is well worth investigating.
