"I already liked this good guitar player and vocal bluesman MICK CLARKE when he founded the fantastic group KILLING FLOOR in 1968, the year of the incredible LED ZEPPELIN's birth. He played with the great Blues pianist LOU MARTIN and the drummer ROD DE'ath (by the way, this two great musicians later joined the extraordinary RORY GALLAGHER for a period of six years).The group KF split up and MICK, at the beginnings of a worldwide Blues revival in the first 80's, founded THE MICK CLARKE BAND and got a big success, mainly in Europe. In some way, this group has always lived under the shadow of groups like Savoy Brown (Kim Simmonds), Fleetwood Mc. (Peter Green), Rory Gallagher or John Mayall, but it has his own style and in this record produces some really good Blues-Rock music (though there are moments at which it feels a little repetitive). It features the great LOU MARTIN at the keyboards and a good harmonica job by"DANGEROUS" DAVE NEWMAN. All the songs are good. Nostalgic people can find a good instrumental version of "Cry to me" (both The Rolling Stones and The Pretty Things made marvellous versions of it in the 60's), the classic Blues "That's all right" , and the good instrumental songs "No crease", "Celebration" and the Blues-rock "Produce row". My evaluation is 3,5 starts."
