  • Description

    This superbly recorded set features a little recorded line-up by the Welsh band.
    Archie Semple had left and John Barnes was yet to join and so the reed chair was occupied by the hugely underrated and hugely talented Al Gay.
    Al was only with the band just over a year and moved on to Long John Baldry's Hoochie Coochie Men.
    He contributes some magnicent playing on this album which includes tunes rarely recorded by the Welsh band.
    As the booklet points out they couldn't have bettered this set if they'd done it in a studio.
    British Jazz at its very best.
