This four-CD box set charts the musical history of the original '60s British blues supergroup the Graham Bond Organisation, which evolved out of the legendary Alexis Korner Blues Incorporated and in the future would provide two members of Cream - Jack Bruce on bass and Ginger Baker on drums.
The seminal line-up also had Dick Heckstall Smith on tenor and soprano saxes. But the driving force was multi-instrumentalist Graham Bond, who powered the group on Hammond organ and synthesiser.
Compiler Pete Brown has unearthed a fine collection of unissued recordings of this hard-working band along with tracks from the various line-ups fronted by Bond in the early '60s with the excellent but unappreciated vocalist Duffy Power, John McLaughlin and guitarists Ernest Ranglin and Winston G. That alone makes the set a must as the original vinyl is as rare as hen's teeth.
Wonderful musicians playing with exuberance and talent.
