Product Description

Product Description

One of the great unsung heroes of the 1960s' Brit Rock Scene, Pete Brown, returns to the recording fray by way of a brand new album recorded with musical partner Phil Ryan. Comprising fourteen tracks, the album also contains magnificent contributions from the likes of Arthur Brown, Mick Taylor, Clem Clempson, Jim Mullen, and Annie Whitehead, as well as some inimitably Jazz-flavoured horn charts from a stellar brass section including Lee Goodall, Laurie Brown, and a cameo from Art Themen. Highlights include a superb duet between Pete Brown and Maggie Bell on the sulphurous, smouldering Between Us, and Brown's trademark lyrical wit suffuses the likes of Klip-On Weirdness Kit and The Ballad of Psycho and Delia. The whole album is a delightfully, reassuringly old school Brit Rock record that radiates the kind of quality ensemble playing that many thought was extinct when the sixties morphed into the seventies. Pete Brown is renowned as the lyric writer for Cream and subsequently Jack Bruce, penning such deathless classics as Sunshine Of Your Love, I Feel Free, White Room, and Politician amongst many others, songs which have became deeply etched into the patina of British Rock music. This release coincides with the publication of Pete's biography, through a major publisher, entitled 'White Rooms & Imaginary Westerns'. Full press and promotion accompanies this and the book's release. Advertising to include Mojo, Shindig and Properganda. Track listing: Flag A Ride / Living On The Edge / Between Us / Klip-On Weirdness Kit / The Ballad Of Psycho And Delia / Tell Me / Men Only / 13th Floor / Scroll On / When Love Has Wings / Moving Target / Didi / Sneaky Spot Trading Man / Couldn't We Try Again.

My main interest in this album is Pete Brown, having been a big fan of his work in the late 60s with The Battered Ornaments and then early 70s with Piblokto! - and of course there is his work as lyricist with Cream and Jack Bruce on renown songs like 'Sunshine of Your Love', 'SWLABR', 'I Feel Free', 'Politician' and 'White Room'. My favourite Pete Brown song is the beautiful 'High Flying Electric Bird' [Brown/Mullen] from the Pete Brown and Piblokto! album 'Things May Come And Things May Go, But The Art School Dance Goes On Forever' [1970] and I would recommend checking this out and other early material to place this album in context and further appreciate Brown's considerable talent.

This 2010 album is great stuff, mainly jazz infused, and with Phil Ryan - long time collaborator - making, of course, his major contribution through keyboards, writing and orchestration. Cool tracks are 3rd 'Between Us' with Maggie Bell on accompanying vocal, 4th 'Klip-On Weirdness Kit' which highlights signature Brown lyrics in all their lively playfulness, and the same can be said for the Brown narrative of 5th track 'The Ballad of Psycho and Delia' which includes a sweet if brief alto saxophone solo from Art Themen, and Annie Whitehead on trombone.

The great Jim Mullen plays guitar on most tracks, but Mick Taylor also guests on opener 'Flag a Ride' and 8th '13th Floor'. Pete Brown's distinctive vocal is a delight throughout. Helen Hardy and Rietta Austin provide soulful backing vocals on most tracks too. As I've said, it's jazzy, but also funky as on 7th 'Men Only' with again some ripe and ribald lyrics livening up the proceedings [penile puns....]. There are fourteen tracks in all and you really do get good value on this consistently entertaining album from, quite frankly, one of Rock's legendary participants.

the cd is ok with many star appearances, the most important is to here again songs/poems by Pete. Very stron return, anticipating back catalogue reissues
