Blodwyn Pig - Still Fresh Listening After 30 Years
Gita | Newport, Rhode Island | 01/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I don't give away five star reviews, and have only given one other CD a five-star rating (Santana's Caravanserai). The quality of the re-release on CD is superb, opinions to the contrary not-withstanding. I don't remember the rich detail I am hearing now, the squeaking steel strings on The Change Song, the high-hat symbals on "Sing Me A Song That I Know" - you can hear every little detail. As for the musicianship, even if the recording was of poor technical quality - and I emphatically state that is not the case here -- the music alone would carry this CD. This is blues/rock in the tradition of John Mayall, Ten Years After, and early Jethro Tull. It's incredibly exciting to me to listen to. I can't decide which song is my favorite. "Up and Coming" has me well doing just that! Oops sorry this is a family forum. This is no rehash of familiar blues formulas. Listen to the tight brass section, the strong, sure blues guitar rifs. The band never falters. And what an awesome singing voice Mick has. This band has fearlessly re-invented blues to fit their own unique sound and talents. There's so much to like here that you have to listen to understand why I'm babbling on like this!"
About Those Missing Tracks...

"The BGO CD follows the track layout of the original (4/69) British LP release. For the 8/69 US release three tracks were replaced by newer songs:"Sing Me A Song That I Know" was replaced by "Walk On The Water" "Up and Coming" was replaced by "See My Way""Leave It With Me" was replaced by "Summer Day"I just found out today that all three "missing" US tracks were included on the 2nd Blodwyn Pig CD from BGO, "Getting To This." They're not listed on the cover, but they're on the disc. In two years of owning a copy I never noticed!Unfortunately, BGO dropped "Meany Mornay" from GTT and substituted "To Rassman" from the British release... so "Meany" is still missing, the only Pig track that is."
Two of the best songs are not included on this cd

"The songs "see my way" and "summer day",which were on the original album, are not on this cd which to me are two of the greatest songs this band ever performed."
