Great Rockin Blues Music,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Open (Audio CD)
Its about time this album was released--It has got to be one of the best of 1969--now where are the 1st and 3rd albums for Blues Image? They are equally as good-I have all three on LP. This album--GREAT GREAT Blues Rock--Mike Pinera (Iron Butterfly) Joe Lala (Steve Stills) and company provide some excellent jams here--Ride Captain Ride was a top ten single--the only problem the guitar solo at the end was cut off early-I saw Pinera do this song a couple yrs ago at a county fair and he went on for about 5 minutes at the end--What a solo!!!! Clean Love is an excellent slow Blues song with a great solo--the sound is excellent on all songs-very clear--Partridge Farm is great-it leads into a great guitar solo. I saw these guys at Winterland 1969--Fantastic Show!!! Pick this CD up and get the 1st & 3rd albums when they arrive on CD-hopefully--for now search the bins for the LPs-you will not be disappointed. ROCK ON-Blues Image---Also check out Mike Pinera's 2 solo albums released on LP in the seventies--called Thee Image--great guitar work!!!!!!!!

My brother had the 8 track tape and it had the solo guitar lick after Ride Captain Ride and I agree it was great,i've been looking for it since.Not many people left who know of it.Sure would like to find it.

Check it out on Amazon--the album by Blues Image should be available as a used cd. I saw them live back in 1969 and they did this song for ten minutes. Wow!!
