Recorded in June 1969 and still one of the best British Blues Albums at the end of the century. I'm sitting here listening to the original album and it's as timeless as the year it was recorded. There are a total of 7 tracks on the LP (I haven't heard the CD yet) - all are good although the best are "B.D.D." and "Natchez Burning". This album and "Thank Christ from the Bomb" are the Groundhog classics - Blues Obituary has all the raw power while TCFTB has the polish.

If you want to debate on what British blues-rock act ruled in the late 60's to early seventies, The Groundhogs led by guitar wizard Tony TS McPhee win hands down in my book. I love this album more than anything ever released by Hendrix or Cream. A timeless classic. Warning to any guitarist; after hearing this you'll want to either sit down and practice or hang it up. McPhee is so good it'll leave your head spinning. Essential listen !

Every Groundhogs album is special in its own way, and you'll find different people have different favorites. This one is mine.

Recorded during June of 1969, this album captures them moving away from their traditional blues format into different territory. Rock music was becoming more virtuoso-driven at this time - Cream and Led Zeppelin had blazed a different trail out of the psychedelic era, and the Groundhogs reflected the new sound with their own, still heavily blues-inflected take on it.

If I would use one word to distinguish the Groundhogs from other bands of this era, it would be "gritty". Their blues roots still show, especially in the production values. These were guys who were the preferred backup band of people like John Lee Hooker, Little Walter, Jimmy Reed and Champion Jack Dupree. Even when they're stretching out into heavy rock or prog territory, the music still sounds like it was recorded at Chess Studios - not a bad thing!

Listen to the samples! These guys are stone pros, exploring some new territory, and if you like the sounds of that era and haven't heard this album, it will be a real eye-opener!
