LEGEND was formed in 1968 by songwriter-musician Michael "Mickey" Jupp, a legend himself of England's Southend music scene, a seaside resort in the Essex area. Inspired by local legend Gary Brooker of THE PARAMOUNTS (who later morphed into PROCOL HARUM) Jupp apprenticed in THE ORIOLES (no relation to FELDER'S ORIOLES) until 1966, whose revolving line-up included future LEGEND's Mo Witham, Bob Clouter and John Bobin. After a forced sabbatical Jupp was the first British signee with U.S. based Bell Records (home of THE BOX TOPS and Merilee Rush) on the strength of his original songs. With all tracks composed by him, the new band, Jupp (Lead vocals, piano & guitar), Chris East (12-string guitar, vocals and harmonica), Steve Geere (string & electric bass and vocals) and Nigel Dunbar (drums) recorded the self-titled debut album using mostly acoustic instrumentation. The band, never meant to be a touring unit, only played one gig before disbanding. Jupp was offered a contract by Dave Knights, the ex-bassist for PROCOL HARUM, who was starting a new career in management. The new line-up, Jupp, Mo Witham (guitar), John Bobin (bass) and Bill Fifield (drums) signed with progressive label Vertigo and set about recording their next album with uber-producer Tony Visconti (David Bowie, Marc Bolan & T. REX). Confusingly self-titled again, the album became know as 'RED BOOT' because of the startling fiery footwear display courtesy of artist Karl Stoecker.

Even with two bonus tracks, 'Moonshine' only weighs in at 36 minutes, but this 1972 album is packed with good quality r&b, all of it original material. The title track is an earthy number, which immediately establishes the dry production. This is deliberate, according to the sleevenotes. 'Another Guy' is the outstanding melody on the disc, an example of Jupp's ability to tug the heart strings. By contrast, 'Captain Cool' possesses the tongue in cheek humour that so many of Jupp's songs feature. 'Shine On My Shoes' is the best r&b track, though the fierce, more rock-oriented 'Just Because' is almost as impressive. The bonus tracks are from a 1971 single and are welcome additions. Not as good as 'Legend' (aka 'Red Boot') but still a very satisfying album. Sadly, they called it a day shortly after this.

As, for instance, early Dave Edmunds' albums (after Love Sculpture to Get it included) , this recording by Mickey Jupp and his band, as well as the previous ones is absolutely evident and novative creating and developing a real and natural modern rock music typically British, I mean by that quite different from US productions and extremely sincere. The dynamic voice must also be rewarded , kind of cross between Link Wray and Nick Drake.
