True Tribute to Early British Blues

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Although Ronnie Earl deservedly sits nears the top of the stack of musicians who straddle the line between blues and jazz, this narrow ground receives sanctimonious tribute from the array of stellar British musicians who contributed to "The Knights of the Blues Table." The legendary and mysterious Pete Brown serves as producer and ringmaster for this solid collection. It's pretty hard to quibble with this all-star assembly who play with fervor and joy throughout. British Blues buffs will have a great time just studying the lineup and noting which bands this who's who line-up played with through the years. Mr. Brown made sure all styles of British Blues are represented, so the songs range from acoustic blues moans to high-energy foot stompers. There are no mailed-in or smoothed out performances here (hence, you won't find Clapton sitting in).There's a great performance by Maggie Bell on Blind Man's Blues, a sizzling take on Judgment Day by Pretty Things, one of the early comeback recordings of Peter Green, Chris Jagger's romp through Racketeer Blues (with his brother Mick contributing some fine harmonica), and Jack Bruce nearly bringing down the house on Send for Me. Plus, Mr. Brown shuns his reclusive ways long enough to add vocals to Rocks in My Bed, and he somehow found a home recording of KC Moan performed by Cyril Davies from the `50s. The whole session is a tribute, in the true sense, to blues legends Cryril Davies and Alexis Korner. There is none of the false aftertaste that comes with a corporate compilation. It's side to see these CDs selling for so little on the used market, for, like good whiskey, this CD only gets better with age."
Blues at it's Best
Blues fan | Philly, PA USA | 04/25/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is an excellent CD of blues with a touch of boogie-woogie for added effect. A great mixture of well established, as well as, unheard of British blues talent. Includes the various former members of the rotating line-up of Blues Incorporated as well as their as their equally talented blues contemporizes.
Stellar performances from established stars like Jack Bruce and Georgie Fame as well as unheard of talents like Miller Anderson (?). Most surprising, this CD contains the first step from Peter Green to return back to the stagelights.
My personal favorites the version of "Blind Man" by Maggie and Big Jim Sullivan and the outstanding performance of "Time Below Zero" by the group Nine Below Zero.
Excellent booklet gives a detailed background on the performers. My only disappointment, volume 2 was never produced.
GREAT PRODUCTION OF CLASSIC BLUES TALENT

"THIS RECORDING HAS A WARM FEELING AND CUTS TO THE HEART OF CLASSIC BLUES. THE PRODUCTION MIX IS TIMELESS AND IT REPRESENTS THE LEGENDARY PRODUCER BEN ELLIOT AT HIS BEST. ALL THE TRACKS WILL IMPACT THE BRITISH BLUES ENTHUSIAST AND OFFER YOUNGER LISTENERS A TOUR OF GREATS THAT ARE STILL PLAYING. THE GREATEST MOMENTS BELONG TO MILLER ANDERSON HOWEVER, HIS VERSION OF DON,T LET ME BE MISUNDERSTOOD IS INTENSE AND WILL DRIVE THROUGH YOUR HEAD AND GRAB YOUR SOUL. THIS IS A MUST FOR THE BLUES LOVER. JOHNNY COSTELLO PRESIDENT PREMIER ART DISTRIBUTORS OF AMERICA"
