Mick Abrahams - Cat Squirrel Blues

Name
Quantity
Double CD £9.99
Artist: Mick Abrahams
Genre: Blues
Cat No. SECDD067 Barcode: 5036436086320

The former Jethro Tull axeman delivers two fiery live sets of blues originals and covers, on acoustic and electric guitar


Having been ousted from Jethro Tull for wanting to steer the band towards a blues rock sound it's clear where Mick Abrahams heart has always lay. Through his solo work with The Mick Abrahams Band and his band work with Blodwyn Pig, Abrahams has established himself as a worthy veteran of the late 1960's blues rock boom and has continued flying the flag to this day.

‘Cat Squirrel Blues’, recorded during various concerts around 2003-2004, features both original songs from his vast catalogue alongside various blues covers of traditional American songs and artists and a couple from the British scene.

The first disc sees him acoustically tear through numbers by Brownie McGhee, Leroy Carr and St. Louis Jimmy Oden showcasing his legendary slide ability over his bands authentically loose rhythmic feel. The electric set for disc 2 shows Abrahams at his technical height mixing in rock and jazz licks over blues rock standards including Alexis Korner's 'I Wonder Who', Little Son Jackson's 'Rock Me Baby' and his brilliant rendition of 'Cat Squirrel' by Isaiah 'Doctor' Ross. A mixture of diverse Blodwyn Pig and Mick Abrahams solo cuts are spread over the album including the folky ‘Gnatz’, the delta blues ‘Leaving Home Blues’ and the rollicking ‘You Got It Wrong’ amongst others.

Much of blues music has been a simple format to follow but for an artist to truly define their own style, as Abrahams has so masterfully done, it takes years of dedication and experience. Enjoy 'Cat Squirrel Blues' as an authentic British blues legend taking on timeless classics as well as his own classics.
