"The late 1960s were a time of raw innovation, cultural blendings, genre bendings, and what-the-hell experiments. In A=MH2, Mick Hutchinson took the blues guitar stylings of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Fleetwood Mac, Chicken Shack and The Groundhogs and blended them with the trance-inducing rhythmic pulse of Indian music. Ragas for blues guitar, in a word.The results were not entirely successful, but nonetheless proved highly influential. Guitarists as diverse as Peter Green, John McLaughlin and Sonny Sharrock have cited this LP as a major influence, and Mick's talents were equal to any of them. Filled out by the saxes, keyboards and drums of Andy Clark, this album is an amazing historical document of a time when artists were free to try anything."
