The album is worth it for the slow-building opener, Train To Nowhere which is a classic of the era.
Breaking out of an increasingly moribund blues scene at the end of the 60s, Tony McPhee swapped his mellow boogie for something heavier and came up with the semi-conceptual Thank Christ For The Bomb.
It seemed a risky move but he had no trouble making the switch. The songs are briefer but each one packs a punch, even when the emphasis is acoustic. And when the band stretches out on the title track, adding layers of sound after a slow start, McPhee rips out a solo that would not disgrace an MC5 album.
The reward for such bravado was the first of three Top 10 albums. Van Morrison was contrary right from the start! Mayall had moved on too. Bad Company - Bad Company Island, Bad Company had their fare share of detractors when they burst on to the scene in the mid 70s.
Ex-Free men Paul Rodgers vocals and Simon Kirke drums were criticised for following a more commercial path, despite the fact that their former band had enjoyed several hits.
They struck the bullseye. The Animals - The Animals Columbia, They wrote very little material themselves but the Animals reworked their covers so thoroughly they probably thought they had written them.
Credited as the inspiration behind John Mayall and The Rolling Stones, several of whom played with him, guitarist Alexis Korner began pioneering the blues in the mids, often in tandem with revered harmonica player Cyril Davis.
Lazy Poker Blues is in a similar vein and adds the kind of doubleentendre lyrics you might expect from a song title with the word poker in it. Elsewhere, Need Your Love Tonight is an already fine blues ballad given a velvet coating with the surprisingly effective addition of an orchestra. Completely mesmerising. Free - Tons Of Sobs Island, Free was a formidable coming together of raw British blues rock talent. Such is their authenticity, these songs sound like they were recorded by crusty old blues legends instead of raw new kids on the block.
Andy Fraser, let us not forget, was barely out of his school uniform at the time of the album recording. Jeff Beck - Truth Epic, By , Jeff Beck had become a major pioneering force on the electric guitar, following Clapton in the Yardbirds, before clocking up two pop hits with Tallyman and Hi-Ho Silver Lining.
