HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER
GEORGIE FAME SWEET THINGS (LP, 1966)
“Georgie Fame and The Blue Flames’ third bum very much follows in the footsteps of its predecessors, a punchy R&B stomper that could (even should) have been recorded live, so high is the energy, and so abandoned the backing of The Blue Flames. This is especially apparent on side two of the original vinyl, as the band all-but replicate the closing run of a hot and sweaty club gig, pounding through an electrifyingly note-perfect “My Girl,” a rattling “The Whole World’s Shaking” and a truly incredible version of “The In Crowd,” all honking horns and smooth-flowing Hammond. Don Covay’s “See Saw” is another jewel, but for sheer audacity, the highlight has to be calypso king Lord Kitchener’s gleefully risqué “Dr Kitch,” a percussively swaying romp that only grows more delightful as it becomes apparent that Fame himself is having trouble delivering the lyric straight-faced — the story of a doctor attempting to administer an injection to a nervous young lady, after all, is so rife with double meaning that it is virtually a sex act in its own right’.

JOHN MAYALL Empty Rooms (1969)
(…) If The Turning Point marked a partial shift away from the genre that had established Mayall’s reputation, Empty Rooms kicked off with a blast of the blues, ‘Don’t Waste My Time’. But this is a long way from his gritty mid-60s classic electric blues. It’s folk-blues, which mesmerized British kids at the dawn of the rock era. Broonzy, Lead Belly, Woody Guthrie all linger here – as does Lonnie Donegan, the man who took Skiffle into the British charts and inspired a generation. (…)
Drum-free it may be, but there’s no lack of drive. ‘Plan Your Revolution’ rocks; ‘Something New’ has a handy lazy groove; ‘People Cling Together’ boasts the spirit of Wilbert Harrison’s ‘Let’s Work Together’, illuminated by 12-string guitar. As the album falls deeper into its romantic mindset, things change: ‘Don’t Pick A Flower’ is folk, pure and simple; ‘Many Miles Apart’ is a wailing blues, but clearly personal; ‘Waiting For The Right Time’ sounds like it was written watching desert dust blow by while Mayall admits “she drives me out of my mind” in a shimmering musical mirage.
