“One of the unsung jewels of the British R&B scene, Long John’s Blues, is astonishingly, the sole surviving document of what was, at one point, among the most exciting live acts on the entire circuit. Baldry himself was dynamite, with a grasp of blues singing that left his contemporaries foundering. His takes on “Got My Mojo Working,” “Dimples,” and “Hoochie Coochie Man” alone are worth the price of admission, no matter how many other versions you may own, while “My Times Are Getting Tougher Than Tough” and, best of all, “Everyday I Have the Blues” pack a punch that reminds us just what great musicians Baldry surrounded himself with, former Cyril Davies All Stars veterans Geoff Bradford and Cliff Barton among them. An excellent sleeve photo, stylishly mod as only Long John could be, completed the original vinyl package, but even in the record’s later incarnation, as part of a two-fer CD with the sleeve barely visible,  Long John’s Blues stands proud among the most essential British blues albums of them all”.

“In America “The Klan” might have some negative connotations, but to a group of kids in Brussels in 1963 it sounded like the perfect band name (good enough to have chosen it over their original name “Los Ombres“). They soon began adding a disclaimer to their name, written as “The Klan (Belgium Band),” to prevent any further confusion.
Regardless of the cheeky title, The Klan were a wonderful baroque pop outfit with one exceptional full length LP to their credit. The songs on 1966’s Join Us are incredibly musical and far more considered than the typical pop fair of the time.
Like most bands of the era, this record touches on all facets of the Beatles but mainly cops the folk rock shamble of Help! and Revolver, with heavy Harrison style vocals. The lush string/brass arrangements and studio effects occasionally take the record into mild psych territory, like on the gorgeous “And I Love It So” and “Already Mine” with it’s vaguely eastern refrain. There’s also a light flair for Spector-esque grandiosity here, with some songs aproaching the Brill Building style. It’s difficult to pick favorites from such a solid album, but some standouts include opener “Fify the Fly” which outshines its goofy subject matter with a pretty melody and a bouncy harpsichord line, and “One of My Dreams” which could easily have been a mid-period Harrison song.
With all the Beatles references aside, The Klan wrote some fantastic material and although they did not achieve much notoriety outside of their home country, these songs definitely deserve to be heard apart from their mid-60s context to truly appreciate the unique perspective on this record”.
