Another album that's been sat in my collection for a long time now and sees the light of day on many an occasion as it contains my favourite rendition of "Theme For An Imaginary Western" Forget all the references to Jack Bruce because this here gem of an album is ALL about the vocal chords and the guitar of Leslie West who, once heard, is NEVER forgotten and, whilst probably more known for his work with Mountain, has had a long and fruitful solo career and "THEME" bears witness to that. Certainly, by today's standards, this is only an audio doodle in that it weighs in at only 35 minutes, but, this is all quality material displayed as only Mr West knows how with his big gravelly voice and even bigger guitar sound that leaves you each and every time with a great big grin on your face, even though some of the numbers here are better known from other artists. But, Mr West makes them all his very own - bear witness to "Red House" and "Love Me Tender" (sung as a threat!) and, of course, "Spoonful" and you will see what I mean. And don't forget "Theme For An Imaginary Western" which is one of the most haunting pieces of music that either West or Bruce has ever put their name to - simply spine chillingly superlative! Although not the best of all the solo material that Leslie has put out since the late 60's, in my book it has to rate among my top 5 Leslie West albums of all time!
