"Graham Bond, originally a jazz saxophonist who also played in Alexis Korner's band and the Don Rendell Quintet, was a pioneer in many ways; perhaps the first to use the famous Hammond organ and Leslie speaker combination, and certainly one of the founding fathers of British rhythm and blues. Although highly influential to other R&B and mod bands of the time, The Graham Bond Organization had little commercial success back then. The band, who featured also Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce (both to form Cream with Eric Clapton just one year later), recorded this LP at a time when albums were considered just like an extra for the fan; today highly collectable, it is regarded as a milestone of the early British rhythm and blues scene and a must for any lover of Mod sounds. Now faithfully reissued by Sweet Dandelion records, with remastered sound and limited to 500 copies."
