    I met Steve Katz in an elevator once.
    Nice guy...he had a booth at the Philly Craft Show.
    I think he has a little Irish Music label or something in the outer 'burbs of NY.
    Killer player.
    I knew some folks who took lessons from Danny Kalb...wasn't he part of that gang?
    It was all over for me when I took my Jr. High girlfriend to see BTO around 1975 or 6 and Elvin Bishop warmed up.
    That and an album called "The Blues World of Eric Clapton."
    I think Shim Sham Shimmy (Champion Jack Dupree) was the first REAL Blues singing I ever heard and it knocked me dead!

    I was going through my old records recently and rediscovered that Blues Project album - great stuff, with a slight psychedelic and jazzy tinge. That instrumental "Flute Thing" is particularly good.

    Yeah, "Flute Thing"'s beautiful. Thanks for the reminder Gareth. Your appreciation for their mix of Blues, Rock, and Jazz...you may well know that they became Blood Sweat and Tears.

    BTW, I happen to have a strong Wales connection. When I was at University of Manchester my dealer (ancient history, I've been in recovery 29 years now) was from Cardiff. Me university mates and I have our reunion this April...in Ballycastle, south of Sligo County.

    Slainte,

    Doug

    Being an old fart I was listening to the blues before I knew what the blues was. I graduated from HS in 1965 so I was listening to Blind Faith, Stones, Spenser Davis , Who, Canned Heat, Cream, Traffic, Doors. And these guys.

    Default The LOUDEST rock band ever...!!!

    Thanks for bringin this back, Rdrokit. When they first appeared we were so hooked by the hype that BC is the loudest Rock n Roll band that I totally missed their Bluesy roots; the sometimes-melodic bass; the tasty drum's syncopation; vocal nuance "holding the note, sorta warbling"; the pretty keyboards...

    I blame the hype for my missing their skillful Blues Rock musicianship... as if my head wasn't fed with swirling psychedelics

    Cheers,

    Doug
