Brian Auger was a keyboard virtuoso who put out numerous albums throughout the 60's and 70's.Virtually all of those albums have been issued on CD except one, Happiness Heartaches, until now! Hitting the Billboard charts in 1977, this album features Oblivion Express members Lenny White, Jack Mills & Alex Ligertwood. Auger fans have been screamin' for this one, so here it is, finally! Wounded Bird. 2003.

"Having never heard this before it arrived, but being a long time Auger fan, I could not be more pleased. Great singing from ex Santana member ALEX LIGERTWOOD. The spiritual lyrics are a plus to me ( a believer ) and the keyboard work as usual is right on time ! Lenny White on drums and Clive Chaman lay down the right groove to move this down the track . I just saw the Express in Va Beach , VA in May 2003 and was able to talk to Brian Auger after the show . He is a open , friendly man as well as a gifted musician. He autographed this cd cover for me. Thanks Brian for a night of inspiration !"

"It took me years to find this album by Brian Auger. The last time I owned it, it was on 8-track. The cd version is better than I remebered it. Mr. Augers B-3 sounds wounderful as does the other instruments. The vocals by Mr. Alex Ligertwood are easy to listen too, nice hooks,great changes and plays great off the musical accompaniment. I would recommend this cd to anyone looking for a great melodic jazz sound with funk."
