I forgot how good this album is, after not being available for many years. A fine debut from the band formed by ex Manfred's Paul Jones and Tom McGuinness for a bit of fun and going back to their first love 'The Blues'. Joined by McGuinness' partner in McGuinness Flint, former Bluesbreaker Hughie Flint on drums, the excellent Dave Kelly on slide guitar and bass gutiarist Gary Fletcher, this album is a mixture of live and studio songs. The Official Blues Band Bootleg Album was initially only available to buy at their gigs, before Arista Records picked it up and gave the band a recording contract. Recommended for all Blues enthusiasts. Enjoy!
