The Blues Band is a virtual who’s who of the British blues scene. Although formed in 1979, the band released its debut album, The Bootleg Album, in 1980 as supposedly a one-time live project. The album was originally a private pressing, recorded live and released by the band themselves, but it sold so well it was re-released intact by Arista after signing the band to a contract. The Blues Band became so popular that they got together as a permanent unit and recorded another album in 1980 called Ready. A superb package and a must for any fan of British blues music.

Line up:

Tom McGuinness ( Manfred Mann, McGuinness Flint): Backing Vocals, Guitar
Gary Fletcher ( Sam Apple Pie): Bass Guitar
Hughie Flint (McGuinness Flint): Drums
Paul Jones (Manfred Mann): Lead Vocals, Harmonica

Nine Below Zero – Don’t Point Your Finger (1981)

Genre: Blues Rock, R & B, Pub Rock
Label: A&M Records

They were a hard one to pin down all those years ago. The obvious Feelgoods influence was there, late 70s, but they were way too cocksure and sharp to fit in with the decaying pub rock scene. Sure, they were energetic enough to be tied in with punk but they had the musical chops and grounding in R&B and the blues that kept them separate. The mod revival toddled along and toddled off again pretty quickly and despite Nine Below Zero having the monochromatic razor-creased suits and the proper influences, they weren’t pretty boy enough for most of the fledgling modsters.

Line up:

Bass, Vocals – Peter Clark
Drums – Stix Burkey
Guitar, Vocals – Dennis Greaves
Harmonica – Mark Feltham

This is string-bending, guitar orientated, blues based rock & roll, with some hard-rocking northwestern attitude thrown in for spice. Too Slim keeps the pace from ever getting stagnant by changing it around all the time; he has arranged the songs well.

Nine Below Zero – Live at the Marquee ( 1980)

Nine Below Zero - Live at The Marquee - 1980

 

Great-Britain-180-animated-flag-gifsRecording Date: July 16, 1980
Genre: Blues Rock, R & B, Pub-Rock
Label:A&M Records
UK (London)

 

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

Nine Below Zero was a classic artifact of the late British punk scene, a searing blues-rock set that recalled the energy of the early performances of the Rolling Stones, the Pretty Things, and the Animals, but presented in a manner closer to the punk era that had just come to a close and which slotted right in with the contemporary mod revival. Anyone who enjoyed the first three or four Dr. Feelgood albums should definitely try Live at the Marquee on for size.Turn the volume up, stick a T-Shirt on and prepare to put yourself into a small venue which is busting at the seams, the band in your face, the audience is sweating, and you love it !This album is about as good as it gets when it comes to the many attempts to put live music onto disc and re-creating the music, the atmosphere, and the raw emotions that being part of a live gig. Here are some great songs, superb harmonica and guitar breaks, and the back line keeps thumping away. There is no let up, it just keeps chugging and chugging …

Line up:

Bass, Vocals – Peter Clark
Drums – Stix Burkey
Guitar, Vocals – Dennis Greaves
Harmonica – Mark Feltham
