Product Description

Product Description

A long-lost British blues collectors' piece, finally re-issued just in time for its 40th anniversary. With two bonus tracks. At the height of the British blues boom in the late 1960s, a handful of musicians emerged who reinterpreted the acoustic country blues of the 1920s and '30s. Championed by Radio 1 DJs John Peel, Mike Raven and Alexis Korner, and the music press of the day like Melody Maker, the most successful names were soon snapped up by major labels. In the winter of 1968/69, Ian Anderson assembled a lively country blues band for his debut album Stereo Death Breakdown, gigging exhaustively alongside household name electric bands and visiting blues legends like Mississippi Fred McDowell. Lost in later transit, the master tapes of Stereo Death Breakdown were long thought to be gone forever, but detective work by Fledg'ing Records recently unearthed them in the vault where they'd been carefully stored.

WHAT A GREAT ALBUM FROM THE BRITISH BLUES BOOM YEARS OF THE LATE 60'S.SO MANY GREAT BANDS FROM THAT ERA WENT ON TO BECOME HOUEHOLD NAMES.CHICKEN SHACK, FLEETWOOD MAC, GROUNDHOGS, SAVOY BROWN,LED ZEPPELLIN TO NAME BUT A FEW.
THIS ALBUM IS RIGHT UP THERE WITH THE BEST OF THEM IN MY OPINION BUT IT IS A SHAME THE BAND NEVER REALLY RECIEVED THE CRITICAL ACCLAIM THAT THEY RIGHTLY DESERVE.I HAVE SEARCHED FOR MORE ALBUMS BY THIS BAND BUT I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND ANY AND THAT IS A GREAT SHAME.
ANY TRUE BLUES FAN WHO LIKES THE MATERIAL FROM THE 30,S AND 40,S WITH A MORE MODERN FEEL TO IT WILL LOVE THIS.

MASTER MUSICIANS PLAYING HEARTFELT SONGS.A MUST FOR ALL TRUE BLUES FANS AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I have adored Ian A Anderson for many years, since hearing the English Country Blues Band and Hot Vultures. Ian A Anderson was a unique British Blues guitarist of the nineteen sixties, and also responsible for the hybrid Bristol Folk Scene in the 1960s where many great artists were recorded. If you aren't familiar with the excellent work of Ian A Anderson, then you need to buy this album - it is terrific wall-to-wall great music with a superb singer, and a consummate Blues National Steel guitarist. This album is worth every penny, so go and buy it you won't be disappointed if you love good music.

4.0 out of 5 stars A British jug band? 2 Sept. 2016
By Delite Rancher - Published on Amazon.com
While Ian Anderson may be an Englishman, he sure knows how to play like he's in an ol' time American jug band. For the unacquainted, we're talking about folk musician Ian (A.) Anderson and not Jethro Tull's front man Ian (Scott) Anderson. Despite the post-modern sounding title, “Stereo Death Breakdown” is a fantastic album of old timey blues. If that doesn't necessarily sound like a good thing to you, give this music of a bygone era a chance as it is surprisingly accessible. The songs are good and the Country Blues Band's sound is fantastic. Since the instrumentation features a harmonica, bass, vocals, piano, jug, mandolin, and washboard, one can imagine how the music sounds. ‘Short Haired Woman Blues’ is humorous, while ‘Way Up On Your Tree’ is one of those blues songs that uses figurative language to seduce. ‘That's Alright’ sounds like it could have been the predecessor that inspired Elvis while the title track is instrumental -aside from a few yelps. Recorded in 1969, the excellent production has an odd way of sounding like a historical artifact that could have been recorded today. While the recordings that inspired this project come from scratchy 78s, “Stereo Death Breakdown” somehow captures the grit of the originals on a clean recording. For years, I've been enchanted by the Roots n' Blues release of “Good Time Blues: Harmonicas, Kazoos, Washboards & Cow-Bells.” “Stereo Death Breakdown” is the blue-eyed recreation of this music. Even if the sound gets a bit monotonous after a while, the entire experience is a joy. Chase the blues away by listening to “Stereo Death Breakdown.”
