4 stars The album opens jazzy instrumental 'Big Bear Ffolly' followed by Willie Dixon's classic blues 'Bring It On Home'; interesting arrangement of a well known J.S.Bach piece is supported with J.Salisbury trumpet, so bringing us to the highlight of this record side called 'Last Blues' which consists basically of two different parts- first one with slow tempo and strong Terry Poole vocals, fading into second, an guitar driving instrumental eventually ending by repeating slow intro. 'Gang Bang' instrumental offers Clempson furious guitar which leads to Keith Baker's superb drumming performance. Side B opener 'This Worried Feeling' is a hard core blues tune (and a very good one!) while 'Son Of Moonshine' is excellent example of prog blues definition. Thre is also a bonus track on this Akarma reissued record 'Once Upon A Time' not present on genuine album release, at that time it was issued as a single.This album revealed talents of three young musicians, among them Clempson's turned out to be the brightest, shining till nowadays. This sole Bakerloo release I would hihgly recommend!
