"Legendary British bluesrock guitar statesman, Robin Trower approaches his finest hour with 'time and emotion' his latest tune set. Trower's evocative note bends and signature tone along with his powerful lead vocals totally bring it.
Another crazy Uruguyan rarity. Dias De Blues was more guitar-centric than Opus Alfa. They did share a common member in Jorge Barral.
Officially licensed from mastertapes and pressed in a micro quantity. Don't sleep on this one.
Mega-rare Uruguayan heavy blues rock with a strong psych vibe. Originally released in 1972, the band's sole album consists of wah wah heavy guitar leads, cheesy organ sounds and some sophisticated flute work.
"Ten years after his first all-blues album, From the Cradle, Eric Clapton released Me and Mr. Johnson, an album-length tribute to his hero, the legendary bluesman Robert Johnson. Not that this is the first time Clapton has paid tribute to Johnson.
Alejandro Medina was one of a number of Argentinian guitarists that drove the 70s psych/prog scene. Guys like Medina, Kubero Diaz, Claudio Gabis, and Billy Bond all played under the band umbrella of La Pesada with one or the other fronting the band on a particular album.
Miller Anderson made his name as the guitarist in Keef Hartley Band. He cut Bright City for Deram in 1971, bringing along some of his ex-bandmates from KHB. The album is a beautiful mix of dreamy folk rock with psychedelic touches as well as driving hard rock.
"The group's third release, 'Mountains' is possibly Steamhammer's most complete album, featuring amongst it's eight tracks a nice mixture of their trademark brand of earthy blues-rock with tinges of psychedelia and some nicely-judged progressive elements.
"Steamhammer's first album is one of their most bluesy efforts. Kieran White's voice resembles Ian Anderson's, making me think what would have happened if Mick Abrahams stayed with Jethro Tull for another album. Martin Pugh's guitar is fluid and is generously featured in short, bluesy solos.
"Using the mystic sounds of the late 60’s and early 70’s as their base, the Blue Pills continue to blend a sweet concoction of blues-rock on ‘Lady In Gold’.The title track gets things off with a fist in the air rock anthem.
Digipak edition comes with a bonus live DVD.
