Bruce such a great singer too. And while playing that big thick bass? Damn he was a monster.

Those featherlight touches in the fills just steering it away from standard blues...... very good.

Jack really drives this along - Ginger is more of a punctuator - would like the drums slightly higher in the mix.

All sound points.

The remaster from a few years ago helps the mix a bit but for it's time the recording is excellent

Passing the Time - the first co-written by Peter track.

I love it - the tempo changes but in particular Jack's cello - an instrument in which he was classically trained

Delightful

I don't know if you are aware JJ but the three Baker tracks are co-written with the jazz pianist Mike Taylor who sadly drowned in the attempts whilst under the (heavy) influence soon after the release of this album

Sad - a great talent

I do love the changing mood - but I think I may love this one more! Sounds like Pagey's guitar tuning. The vocal melody is so crazy. Man, I love this!

Hauntingly ethereal

Marvellous
