Steaks From Sacred Cows, Cheap
Graham Bond? Yer the first to even know his NAME I've come across in decades!Korner, Mayall . . . Bond was one of the first along with them. They led the way to rock in Britain thru their blues. From Clapton, to Baker/Bruce, and Mic Fleetwood/John McVie, those three of Korner, Mayall and Bond led the first wave. Wow, Graham Bond. That's a slice of history.Thanks!
You're welcome as always, Larue. IMO, the GBO was cutting-edge jazz-influenced R & B with a comparable level of influence in England to the Butterfield Blues Band in America, but as robust a sound as it was it wasn't strong enough to withstand some of the individual attitudes and proclivities within the group...It's said the legendary pitched battles on- and offstage between Jack and Ginger prior to The Cream had their genesis in Graham's band. Bloody good sound, though. Huge Hammond/Leslie tone, and those drums, for 1965? Ginger Baker, ahead of the pack as always.;>)
