Amazing. Stan webb is a real loser in 1978. His band is out of subject with punk and new wave. "The Creeper" was not a real good album, and the interest in Chicken Shack diminished, apart in Germany. Webb signed with a german label ,and recorded this album with the same musicians as "The Creeper"; But this one is real good ! There are great heavy blues-rock songs : "The End", "Little Bird","It Wasn't Me". If you like Chicken Shack ans stan Webb, you must rediscover this album. It's a forgotten classic. Born To Lose. --- bandolier, rateyourmusic.com

Praise the Lord - there's a Chicken Shack revival underway. Following hot on the heels of the Sanctuary "Anthology" set, the "I'd Rather Go Live" In concert DVD and this year's tour with John Mayall, this 2003 German gig is a welcome addition to any discerning CS fan.

Looser than the great Indigo live CD "Stand The Man - Live" and with some different arrangements, Stan Webb, Gary Davis, Jim Rudge and Mick Jones serve up another tasty slice of British blues, rock and vaudeville. Celebrating 40 years as a professional musician, the CD showcases everything we love about Stan Webb. Stunning guitar, commanding vocals, self-effacing humour and a genuine love for the music and respect for his audience, this is the best way to experience Chicken Shack. The set hasn't varied that much over the years, but the addition of a three piece horn section adds some whoompf and richness to the sound. "The Thrill is Gone" must surely now be an honorary Stan song as it fits him so well - proving him not just a flash player but one of great sensitivity and feel. "Tell Me" and "Doctor Brown" are as rollicking as ever and the heartfelt "You are the sweetest thing" provides a welcome change of pace and tone. This isn't just blues rock (I think I heard/read somewhere that SW doesn't see CS as just a blues band)so there's a lot more variety in the songs and tone than you might expect. And it's all delivered with just the right amount of respect and humour.

This is a really good, tight band. No doubt that Stan Webb is the focal point, the showman and source of energy, but Gary Davies plays a really great second guitar, economical, understated but totally together and into the song. Jim Rudge and Mick Jones provide the foundation from which Stan Webb launches his guitar and vocals. The latter are unquestionably getting better and better with the years and when he really lets rip or hangs onto a note it is done to great effect.

The audience presence is a little muted perhaps and the trademark banter and observations somewhat toned down (for the German fans?)but the relationship between artist and audience is still there - an essential ingredient in a CS show.

It may not be big and it may not be clever, but this music is honest, gutsy, uncomplicated and genuine. For me it reflects the kind of affection and respect some of the great bluesman like B.B and Freddie King always showed for their audience and Stan Webb and Chicken Shack are in the same groove. Maybe loyalty is an outdated notion these days, but if you are CS fan, you'll buy this CD and love it - and probably not just for the music. If you're not a CS fan, give it a try. I doubt it will change your life but when you've listened to it, I'll bet you'll have a smile on your face. --- Praise the Lord - there's a Chicken Shack revival underway. Following hot on the heels of the Sanctuary "Anthology" set, the "I'd Rather Go Live" In concert DVD and this year's tour with John Mayall, this 2003 German gig is a welcome addition to any discerning CS fan. --- Andy Clare (UK), amazon.com

Stan Webb (guitar, synthesizer).

 

Stan Webb (born Stanley Frederick Webb, 3 February 1946) is the frontman and lead guitarist with the blues band, Chicken Shack. Webb was born in Fulham, South West London. Playing firstly in skiffle bands, Webb formed the first version of the blues band, Chicken Shack in 1965. The band played in Hamburg, Germany over the next couple of years, as Webb perfected his playing techniques. They signed to the Blue Horizon record label in 1967, where their label mates were the fledgling Fleetwood Mac. The group was then composed of Webb, Christine Perfect, drummer Dave Bidwell, and bassist Andy Sylvester (who would later play with the British blues ensemble, Savoy Brown). Chicken Shack enjoyed their heyday in the mid to late 1960s, when R&B was a popular music form in England. Their music was traditional in make-up, and the group covered a variety of American blues standards, as well as composing several home-spun tunes. Their repertoire included, arguably, their most played track - "I'd Rather Go Blind". This song was originally recorded by Etta James, written by Ellington Jordan and Billy Foster, and became a modern day blues classic.

Chicken Shack are probably most remembered for including Perfect on keyboards and vocals in their line-up. She rose to far greater fame when she later joined Fleetwood Mac becoming Christine McVie after her marriage to the band's bassist, John McVie.

Chicken Shack's line-up has evolved and changed considerably over the years with Webb being the only constant factor. In 2001, Webb released his first solo album for over eight years when Webb appeared on the Indigo Records label.

Originally released in 1973, but reissued with four extra tracks as part of Sanctuary's Blues Masters series in 2003, Chicken Shack's Unlucky Boy finds guitarist/vocalist/songwriter and band founder Stan Webb in fine form. Only drummer Paul Hancox remains from the uneven Imagination Lady, and indeed the horn-oriented approach here is much different than the plodding Led Zeppelin-isms of the previous disc. Webb contributes six originals, and even though they are derivative of Savoy Brown (a band he joined for the Boogie Brothers album just a year later), his approach here is much more subtle and controlled than on his last effort. Chris Mercer's saxes, often double tracked to sound like a horn section, bring a tough R&B to the mix, and drummer Hancox is a controlled powerhouse. Webb also reigns in his impulse to overextend guitar solos so prevalent on Imagination Lady, whipping off tight, controlled leads instead.

Producer Neil Slaven contributes honest, witty, and often self-deprecating liner notes that help explain why two of these songs suffer from poor mixes (basically, he had consumed various substances and couldn't salvage the songs after the fact). Strings on "As Time Goes Passing By," (also included in a shorter single version) are a nice touch and bring a bit of class to the proceedings while maintaining the R&B slant of the disc. Two unedited studio jams make the cut as "Stan the Man" and the seven-minute "Jammin' with the Ash," both featuring pianist Tony Ashton, who really lets loose on the latter. Things get stripped down for an unusually delicate version of Lonnie Johnson's "Too Late to Cry" with just strummed guitar and bass. The opening trio of Webb-penned tunes shows some of his best songwriting with the instrumental "Prudence's Party" a terrific capsule of Webb's stinging, gritty guitar style. The album sounds dated but harkens back to a particular time in British blues that is charming in its anything goes attitude. That helps make this one of Stan Webb's more consistent and successful offerings. --- Hal Horowitz, allmusic.com

40 Blue Fingers, Freshly Packed and Ready to Serve is the debut album by the blues band Chicken Shack, released in 1968. The album reached number 12 in the UK charts.

 

If one can overlook Stan Webb's hyperventilating vocal excesses (which ain't easy), this is a promising debut, especially noteworthy for Webb's Freddie King-inspired guitar sting and Christine Perfect's understated vocals (only two, unfortunately compared to Webb's six). Webb does justice to his mentor with two instrumentals, King's "San-Ho-Zay" and his own "Webbed Feet," and Perfect proves the ideal counterpart -- one of the few pianists paying homage to King's longtime collaborator Sonny Thompson. Nice spare sound, typical of Mike Vernon's Blue Horizon label. --- Dan Forte, allmusic.com. Formed in 1967, Chicken Shack consisted of Stan Webb on guitar/vocal, Andy Sylvester on bass, Christine Perfect a.k.a Christine McVie, later a part of the great Fleetwood Mac on vocals/keyboards, and Alan Morley on drums. Webb is ,according to me, a really under-rated guitarist of the late 60's British Blues Scene , just like Les Harvey ( Stone The Crows), Mick Taylor ( The Bluesbreakers)...

Christine is a Godess. She's like Whoa!!! An amazing voice. Powerful, Soul-driven..definitely sounds very influenced by the great John Mayall. Chicken Shack made their public debut at the Great Britain's National Blues & Jazz Festival at Windsor along with Fleetwood Mac on August 13, 1967-- "There were two stages at Windsor, the main one an open-air ramshackle structure, the other inside a marquee. Fleetwood Mac had their initiation on the main stage but much was made of Chicken Shack's tented debut." But all said and done it's Christine who makes this album a real pick. I know of people who'd kill for a voice like that . very powerful and yet very smooth [and] soulful.

Stan Webb's charismatic guitar playing gives you another good reason to pick up this one. Check out his vocals on the Eurreal "Little Brother" Montgomery cover, First Time I met The Blues. Buddy Guy's version being the most popular. If you love the blues, simply. GO GET THIS ONE!! ---voodoo chile, amazon.com
