Jasper "Liberation" (UK Bluesy Prog 1969)

Brilliant 1969 UK progressive psych with a blues feel. Don't let that put you off though - early Jethro Tull had a blues edge and this album is very similar in feel to that band. Definitely a classic of the era. Features superb psych artwork. (Freak Emporium)

Above album was originally released on Spark Rec. Not too much is known about the band. The ingredients of this record are mostly blues-based styles, quite competent guitars, some flutes. It has a bit gloomy mood. To me the best are blues-style tracks "Baby Please Don't Go" and " St. Louis Blues", both slow, with nice vocals. Album is very easy to listen to, but really nothing spectacular. I think it's good example of British blues invasion. The key personage in the band was Alan Feldman - keyb. who later on went to form F.B.I.

Personnel:
Alan Feldman - Keyboards
Chico Greenwood - Drums
Nicky Payne - Vocals, Harmonica, Flute
Steve Radford - Guitar
Jon Taylor - Bass
