CD Reviews

The Real Deal
Matthew7 | Donut City, England | 01/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Look no further. This is the genuine article. A great album. The recording quality on the live tracks may not be the best you'll ever hear, and Eric sings like he knows he's being outclassed by 'The Spoon', but this album still cuts it as a superb piece of blues. Highly recommended! :o)"
Burdon's Prison Break

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Together with "Eric Burdon Declares War" (sept. 1970) and "Black Man's Burdon" (Jan. 1971) - both available on CDs (Eric Burdon Declares "War", The Black-Man's Burdon) "Black & White Blues" (re-issued under this title in 1976 only; originally released as "Gulty!" in 1971 - see the images) is one of the most accomplished albums of the singer, and perhaps the most desirable one.
The album was recorded not only in the studios, but on location - which was San Quentin Prison. The musicians were backed by San Quentin Prison Band featuring Ike White ob guitar, and the album itself was fortified by the poem of John Pence Wagner (written in cell 4-E-56).
Get it - if you can. And read the book also - calm, honest, great (Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood."
