Originally formed in 1971 by Yes keyboardist Tony Kaye and drummer Roy Dyke, by 1973 Badger had released a live debut LP and then regrouped with the addition of former Beatles protg Jackie Lomax, Stealer s Wheel guitarist Paul Pilnick and renowned bassist Kim Gardner. White Lady was recorded in New Orleans (with arrangements by Allen Toussaint), and features guest appearances by Jeff Beck, Bryn Haworth and others. It makes a long-overdue return to CD here, together with background notes and images.

With founding guitarist Brian Parrish and bassist Dave Foster gone, a slew of folks showed up to contribute to this effort. Don't be impressed by the line-up despite seeing Jeff Beck, Kim Gardner, and producer Allen Toussaint in the fold. This whole effort was hijacked by Jackie Lomax, and under his control the band issued this collection of wilted, languid collection of white soul tunes. Tony Kaye, the force behind "One Live Badger," is little more than a session musician here.
Maybe it was the heat and humidity from recording in New Orleans. Whatever it was, you do not want to hear the results. And to tell the truth, I guess I knew at some level that the band was in trouble as soon as I saw the album cover.
If you think about all the great music that has never made it to CD, such as several recordings by Streetwalkers, then you have to wonder why this one did. Spare yourself this horror. Please trust me.
With regret, this album got even less attention than Lomax's solo outings as many fans didn't know he was in the group and Badger fans were left running back to the comotose offerings of other come and go progressive rock bands.
This album has life, heart and soul, and though its not the strongest material of his career, is is a strong 4 stars
it wasn't the best produced album , but it somehow caught my attention and has hung on to it all these years....on the title track , there is no mistaking Jeff Beck , but that's not the highlight of the album by any means... a classic example of Jackie Lomax's vast musical influences that contribute to his approach vocally...a must listen for those who want to hear a pure , unadulterated voice before tons of processing....

ああ、そうか１Ｓｔのライブだって今冷静に聞けば英国流のゴスペルソングなんですけど、当時はトニー・ケイ フロム イエスとしかみな考えておらず、黒っぽい音に気がついていなかったんですね。
