3 stars Firstly, let me declare a sentimental interest in all things Vertigo "Spiral". Way back in the very early 70s, I used to spend my pocket money on bargain bin LPs because i could not afford full price releases. Nearly all the "Spiral" releases were in there, along with RCA Neon and other obscure labels. All of these are worth a mint now, but only cost 50p each at the time!

One of my early purchases was this May Blitz album. I probably bought it because of the lovely lady on the cover! I still listen to it now, and although it is heavily influenced by Cream (the singer is a dead-ringer for Jack Bruce) and The Groundhogs in particular, it has its own charm.

Standout tracks are Smoking The Day Away, I Don't Know, and Virgin Waters. The guitarist seems to be more jazz than blues influenced at times, which lends the solos an interesting edge.

This LP is far better than their second effort, when they seemed to run out of ideas after the first track.

Incidentally, if May Blitz is on this site, why not Clear Blue Sky, who were probably more proggy??

Starless | 3/5 |
