Excellent artist from across our river here in Detroit.
Canadian (Windsor, Ont.) born Martin along with band-mates Stuart Chatwood and Jeff Burrows formed the real Tea Party in 1990.
Our nut case group here in America literally offered to buy their website domain name (they bought in 93′), worth over a $1 million US dollars. Chatwood stated “So much damage has been done to our name by this political movement that they considered selling but instead has since added the phrase “No politics… Just Rock and Roll” to their site in order to distance themselves from the US political group.
This was the second album from this Glasgow group formerly known as Mustard (with a few different members). Never knew with their sound why they never took off until Alex Harvey came aboard after its release. Sounded damn good to me.
I know so many I don’t know which one of them to dedicate this to, including myself!
This was a rarity that Ian Anderson did a song in which he or the band didn’t write but what an awesome cover of Roland Kirk.
In fact if you excuse the pun the band as a whole put more than enough english on it to make this song even better. I love this early Tull and how they took a blues & jazz start then evolved into such a powerhouse progressive rock band.
They just got better and better as they went along.
It makes more sense.
What an incredibly gifted band. We had many poets in the 1960s that spoke their souls. They didn’t have to lure us, we went in willing.
This first album was epic.
