A brilliant British set from Ram John Holder – not really blues at all, but a cool kind of crossbreeding of styles in the 60s London scene – almost the same mad mix of modes you might hear in The Equals! Holder is a singer with a long legacy behind him by the time of this set, including some work on the folk circuit too – all of which makes his approach different than more conventional UK blues, and has some of the headier qualities at times you might hear from the Terry Callier generation – even though Holder's got a very different sound than Terry. There's plenty of funk on the record – some great drums, bouncing basslines, and an overall tightness that's more gritty soul than blues – although there's definitely a bluesy bent at times too! Titles include "Brixton Blues", "Too Much Blues", "Pub Crawling Blues", "Wimpy Bar Blues", and "Hampstead To Lose The Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
