Ram John Holder - Black London Blues


This 1969 release walks that tightrope between genius and cheese that so many of my favorite acts tread. It's clearly recorded on a buget, and some of the session players werent the greatest . But with songs like "Brixton Blues" (an ode to english alcoholism) i dont think you can fail to like it.Some of my fellow english readers may recognise him as he played Porkpie in the Channel 4 show Desmonds. ive seen this sell for $300 on ebay, so its well worth a listen.
