For them, the man would not know, he is the guitarist on Jethro Tull's long player 'This Was "(1968) and this is immediately one of their best albums.
He leaves the Tull to start his own band and he does with the necessary success, Blodwyn Pig is a fact! With Blodwyn Pig he made three albums: 'Blodwyn Pig' (1969), 'Getting To This' (1970) and appeared in the same year 'All Said And Done' and that was in effect on the existence of Blodwyn Pig. The following year, Abraham's decision to deal with his own band and we were allowed to record two albums: "A Musical Evening With Mick Abrahams' (1971), and the beautiful 'At Last' (1972). There have also been sporadic reunions of Blodwyn Pig and Mick Abrahams Band. Since then, 
with this release we get a new album of this British blues legend. This is a previously unreleased recording from 2004, which now enters through Secret Records on the music market. Unfortunately, lack of data all along who was in the studio, Abraham always satisfy itself by just letting surround. Great musicians But in itself is not a problem because the numbers speak for themselves. Blues in recent years as it is no longer made. Under his own pinned songs we find five covers including the inevitable 'Stormy Monday', of course, "Hoochie Coochie Man" by Willie Dixon which the CD is opened, 'She's Into Something, "" Cornbread and Peas "and" You Shook Me "(Willie Dixon). His songs are the core of this CD and "Sunday Drivin'' and the tug" What Am I Living For "Mick makes clear how he has mastered the blues and that he is also a brilliant guitarist. Still other clever tunes of his own hand include 'Poor Boy', 'Road Roller', the compelling 'Used To Being Down ", which he let speak his guitar etc ... 

Many concert promoter not know Mick Abrahams to the great shame until I introduced them some music from him. Mick Abrahams and if you do not agree with this statement, remains one of the better blues perfomers in Britain and I recommend to you as quickly delve into the work of Jethro Tull, Blodwyn Pig or the man's own solo repertoire . Bet you surprised eyes open but surely attract the ears Alfons Maes (4 ½)

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
