Mick Abrahams: US Review

Mick Abrahams - Revved! (Double CD, Gonzo Multimedia, Pop/rock)
You may not know the name Mick Abrahams right off the bat, but chances are you've heard him in the past. As one of the original members of both Blodwyn Pig and Jethro Tull, Abrahams cemented his place in the world of music decades ago. Now 71 years old, Mick has recorded what some are saying is the strongest album of his career. Not bad for a guy who's been around for so long. The list of artists lending their talents to these recordings is mind boggling. Playing and/or singing on these tracks are Bill Wyman, Martin Barre, Bernie Marsden, Graham Walker, John Gordon, Jim Rodford, George Murayni, Elliot Randall, Geoff Whitehorn, Emily Gardner, Josh Phillips, Mark Feltham, Paul Jones, Beverley Skeete, Don Andrews, Patrick Washe, and Peter Aldridge (whewwwww!!!). And if the list of contributing musicians doesn't blow you away, the tracks on Revved! most certainly will. Abrahams is obviously one of those guys out there who others like, appreciate, and admire. These feelgood blues/rock tracks are slick and inspired and you can just tell by listening to them that the musicians involved were having a helluva time recording them. Seventeen cuts here and they all hit the target. This classy little package also includes a bonus DVD.

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.
