Andy Clark and Mick Hutchunson recorded three fine albums of deranged psychedelic blues between 1968 and 1971. This is their first album from 1968 which showcases the duo in a more formulaic blues-rock mode that they would later use as a springboard to develop their own distinctive sound. The music sits on the juncture where post-psychedelia, Eastern-inspired raves, and low-tech blues meet, and like early Fleetwood Mac, the Groundhogs, and John Mayall, they keep a progressive sound while maintaining a blues spirit. This debut is an inspired introduction to the later classics, and while it is not as far out as their later '70s material, this Little Wing reissue has a classic underground charm.
