Blimey it's Limey
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Big Ben in Britain, okay, what's the deal? Not the best, but has its moments. The band isn't all-star, especially the couple of tracks with the organist rather than the pianist; and the tracks aren't properly noted on the disc nor the cover notes on my copy, but there is some merit here for Webster aficianados. Some good blowing for his advanced age & health; but for completists, as they say, after you've got the other many fine CD's of his. The recording quality is good, but the band plays it straight; so fans of a looser approach may not care for the style at such a late date (1967). Some fine piano & bass as well as tight drumming, and a nice mellow rendition of "Solitude" for fans of the Ben ballad stylings."
