Finally, once again,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bootleg Album/Ready (Audio CD)
I used to own these recordings on vinyl. But moving in with my girlfriend meant, inevitably?, that some of my things had to go, inclusing the record collection. I discovered that among the records I missed the most were the Blues Band. U2, Rolling Stones, and the rest could all be easily replaced - but not the Blues Band. The records are still brilliant, and if you're unfamiliar with the band, here's what I think: buy them! Using the familar 12-bar blues as their starting point, the band gets in to all corners of rhythm and blues (in its original sense!) If you're looking for 12/8 slow blues with loads of guitar, this is the wrong album, but if you want to progress beyond that and hear what a bunch of excellent musicians can create, this is it.
