Eric Burdon & Tovarich - Live At The Whisky A GoGo - October 1971 (Flac)


"Eric Burdon remains a curiously compelling live performer. His blues growl has not been tamed, nor has his musical integrity or his acute sense of showmanship. He remains ... one of rock's most worthy sons"
Enjoy !!!
Eric Burdon, the former Animals frontman in 1971, created a very short-lived band called Tovarich, and played with the band in October 11, 1971 at the famous Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles.
: Great gig with fantastic musicians (George Suranovich & John Sterling particularly) concert was a shame that this lineup of the band only existed for a few months, but luck is that it remained a relatively good quality recording for posterity.

George then played briefly with the Blues Image before joining the Eric Burdon Band. While working on the album "Guilty", George met John Sterling (guitar) and Kim Kesterson (bass). Along with Kevin Kelly (keyboards), they formed Tovarich (Russian for "Comrades"). Besides backing Burdon and blues/jazz vocalist Jimmy Witherspoon, they became a popular attraction on the L.A. club circuit and recorded an album of their own (unreleased). They later recorded a second album with Burdon, "Stop!", as well as "Black & White Blues" by Burdon and Witherspoon. That album, released only in Europe, included George's composition "Wicked Wicked Man"(which was recently resurrected by Burdon as the title track of one of his own albums). Tovarich also provided the soundtrack to the movie "Revenge of the Cheerleaders".(By Adamus67)

Mick Abrahams - Mick's Back (1996 Great Uk Rock Blues - Flac)


It's a funny thing about Mick Abrahams -- he and his one-time Jethro Tull bandmate Ian Anderson are both "trapped" in time warps, but of very differing kinds: Anderson in a folky art rock musical loop and Abrahams in a '60s-style electric blues cycle, with the echoes of Chess Records' roster and also Albert King et al. rippling through his work. And at this late date, Abrahams may be the one with slightly more elbow room. The opening track on Mick's Back, Percy Mayfield's "The River's Invitation," could almost pass for an early-'60s Howlin' Wolf track, and the rest doesn't try to be much more advanced, nor does it have to be -- "Cold Women With Warm Hearts" offers Abrahams in his own "voice," and it all sounds very close to the kind of rootsy blues that Alexis Korner and Blues Incorporated used to do, with some of the virtuosity of the Graham Bond Organisation in there as well. The electric guitar is, of course, very prominently featured throughout, and there are saxes and even a little brass, but they're sufficiently subdued to keep the focus on Abrahams' playing where it belongs. His singing is also expressive, a powerful, raspy instrument in its own right -- coupled with the rippling instrumental breaks on songs like "Time to Love" and the mixed acoustic/electric textures of "Leaving Home Blues," the CD justifies itself as a still very credible version of '60s British blues, which will appeal to anyone who loved early Alexis Korner, Cyril Davies, Graham Bond, or the first two Cream albums.(By Bruce Eder)
