Named after pianist Rick Kay, this North London band featured Fairport Convention's Ashley Hutchings in its first line-up. By 1967 they were one of the busiest bands on the burgeoning British blues scene, playing up and down the country (as well as on the continent) and sharing stages with underground stars such as Pink Floyd and Tyrannosaurus Rex. Their sole album was taped in the autumn of 1968, and produced by Peter Eden (who'd overseen Donovan's early sessions). A superb set of Chicago-style blues with fine slide guitar and boogie-woogie piano, it makes its long-overdue return to CD here. Includes background notes.
