Saw this wonderful band last night, 38 years on the road and still one of the best blues acts in the world. This recording though is back in 1991, and has been in the vaults since, but it was found, re-mastered and now available for purchase. The is the Big Blues Band, horns ,keyboards all live at the Town and Country Club, and I a cracking live set over the two discs. Recorded just after the 'Fat City' album hit the market many of the songs from it come in this set, several of the extra musicians here also performed on that album. Joining Paul Jones, Dave Kelly, Tom McGuinness, Gary Fletcher and Rob Townsend (yes ! still exactly the same line up as it is now). They are great as a band but add the likes of BobHall's piano, The Rumour Horns, and The Kokomo Singers and do you have some talent on the stage that night. I you were there well you can enjoy it all again, if not then this is simply a not to miss album by as said one of the best bands around. The sound is first class, and with a mix of their own songs,some great blues covers, what more could you want. Get it in those Christmas stockings now. Big and live and mighty good! ---pete clack, amazon.com

The legendary Blues Band are at their toe-tapping best, playing the kind of music that inspired them as young musos in the 1960s, and recreated years later on this 12 track set of Blues standards and original compositions, first released in 1981. The album still retains its urgent energy and enthusiasm today, and is played by musicians with loving reverence and skills born of years of practice and duties with major groups of the 1960s. Includes 9 bonus tracks: 7 out-takes from the Itchy Feet sessions; a recording from the period - intended as a Paul Jones single, but never released; plus Green Stuff (live), the B-side of 1981's Come On single. Booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes written by respected author and journalist Chris Welch, includes an interview with founder members Tom McGuinness and Paul Jones. Expertly remastered by Jon Astley (who has worked on recordings by the Who, Led Zeppelin, George Harrison and many others). Superb sound the best in the business!

If you want to hear a low down, dirty, moody blues with wailing harmonica and deep throaty vocals - then take off your socks and shuffle along to Itchy Feet . It's one of the highlights on an album that showcases the legendary Blues Band at their toe-crunching best. This 12 track set of blues standards and original compositions was first released in 1981 and still retains its urgent energy and enthusiasm. It's amazing to think the Blues Band are still out there touring, some 30+ years later. Yet, founder members Paul Jones and Tom McGuinness already had long established careers in the music biz - starting out with Sixties chart busters Manfred Mann by the time they devised this down to earth outfit. Here is the music that inspired them all as young musos, played with a loving reverence and the skill born of years of practise. Kicking off with Lowell Fulson's Talking Woman Blues and the Chuck Berry-ish Rock n Roll Radio , the band switches grooves for Itchy Feet , giving Paul Jones a chance to wail that harmonica. ---amazon.com

England's the Blues Band is led by ex-Manfred Mann vocalist Paul Jones and guitarist/vocalist Dave Kelly, who, before forming the group in 1979, had been a member of the John Dummer Blues Band and issued several solo recordings on his own (Kelly had also received praise for his playing by such blues legends as Howlin' Wolf and John Lee Hooker). After hooking up with friend/bassist Gary Fletcher, the seeds for the Blues Band were sown, resulting in countless albums (including such titles as 1980's Official Bootleg Album and Ready, 1981's Itchy Feet, 1982's Brand Loyalty which featured new member ex-Family drummer Rob Townsend, 1983's Bye Bye Blues, 1986's These Kind of Blues, 1989's Back for More, 1991's Fat City, 1993's Homage, and 1995's Wire Less, among others). In addition, Kelly formed the Dave Kelly Band in the mid-'80s (issuing four albums), penned music for commercials and such projects as BBC TV's King of the Ghetto and The Comic Strip Presents Strike!, has been voted Best Acoustic Artist by BBC polls throughout the '90s, and is an honorary patron of the London Guitar College with Hank Marvin. ---Greg Prato, Rovi

This 1991 recording from the Blues Band is probably my favourite of their albums, and the most unique in style throughout their catalogue.

The band were starting to move away a little from the raw blues sound of five guys on a stage. Introducing more sophisticated production techniques and a wider palette of instrumentation gave them a richer, fuller sound with which to work. This can be the death of some bands, but Jones, Kelly and the rest of the guys managed to create a masterful album which retains the essential elements of their music, but adds that little bit more.

Jones in particular is on fine form, especially in the title track. With his distinctive vocals and top class harmonica work he sets a high standard for the rest of the gang to live up to, and they manage to keep up pretty well. With a riper sound, verging on soul at times, mixed with some straight blues numbers (Duisburg blues especially) and interesting songwriting that lets the band's inherent good natured and generous personalities shine through this is the most interesting and accomplished of their works. ---Victor, amazon.com
