B.B. Blunder's sole outing had some nice typically thick circa 1970-British rock guitars, and some bits of promising melodies buried in the mix. Overall, though, one gets the impression that the group went into the studio before getting the songs into shape -- there's a lot of meandering, and the songs either don't say much or never get to the point. Mick Taylor makes a little-known cameo appearance on bottleneck guitar on "New Day." Originally titled Workers Playtime, the album was first issued on Sahara Records in 1971. It was reissued, confusingly, as New Day in 1989 by Decal, who attributed the LP not to B.B. Blunder, but to "Blossom Toes '70 (formerly B.B. Blunder)." That reissue is also much easier to find than the scarce original. So if you look for a copy, be aware that it might be filed/listed under Blossom Toes.
