Product Description

1970 debut album for this young south London blues-based band. Original members had been Paul Kossoff and Simon Kirke, but when they left to form Free, the band reorganised and went on to record this album for Decca's Nova label. Bassist Stuart Brooks was later to re-surface in the Pretty Things. Digitally remastered and slip-cased and with new notes.

Format: Audio CD
Best known as the former band of Free members Paul Kossoff and Simon Kirke (neither of whom are credited on this album), Black cat Bones were a typical late 60's, early 70's "progressive" blues band in the same mould as Free, Chicken Shack and Ten Years After but slipped into obscurity due to marketing ineptitude and personnel changes. Barbed Wire Sandwich was originally released on on Decca as a mid-priced album noted for its (then fashionable) gruesome cover. The album is well recorded with easily accesable tracks lacking in that ultimate touch of originality.

I've had this album for quite a while now, having bought it for 49p from one of the wobbly clearance spinning racks in Woolworths in 1972. It's one of those albums you can re-visit every so often, and find yourself thoroughly enjoying, even after all that time. There's something enduring about bands like these from that time, when bands were original, believed in themselves, worked damned hard for little or no reward/ recognition, but got off on giving the fans a bloody good night out. Back when record companies took chances, before everyone sounded the same. This album swings more towards bluesey R&B than it does prog rock, but every tracks a winner, and yet another instance of 'Why didn't they make it with material as good as this?'. If you like Coliseum, Family, and Nucleus, you'll love this. No nonsense, no surprises, but well worth buying, and on CD it's a tenth the price of vinyl now, so it's also great value too!

I found this album on the net as mp3 downloads a few years ago and am waiting anxiously for it to become available as a 'proper' CD. Any true original R&B fan should make it required listening. It has a classic raw guitarist feel to it and is a great pity that it is one of the great unknown albums of the era. All in all an outstanding album.

Boy have I got the blues that I never had this when it came out!
If you like John Mayall and other 1970's type of blues bands, this is for you!
Once again, you can get this for over £3 on I Tunes!
