The former Jethro Tull axeman delivers two fiery live sets of blues originals and covers, on acoustic and electric guitar.
Having been ousted from Jethro Tull for wanting to steer the bandtowards a blues rock sound its clear where Mick Abrahams heart hasalways lay. Through his solo work with The Mick Abrahams Band and hisband work with Blodwyn Pig, Abrahams has established himself as a worthyveteran of the late 1960s blues rock boom and has continued flying theflag to this day. Cat Squirrel Blues, recorded during variousconcerts around 2003-2004, features both original songs from his vastcatalogue alongside various blues covers of traditional American songsand artists and a couple from the British scene.
The first disc sees him acoustically tear through numbers by BrownieMcGhee, Leroy Carr and St. Louis Jimmy Oden showcasing his legendaryslide ability over his bands authentically loose rhythmic feel. Theelectric set for disc 2 shows Abrahams at his technical height mixing inrock and jazz licks over blues rock standards including Alexis KornersI Wonder Who, Little Son Jacksons Rock Me Baby and his brilliantrendition of Cat Squirrel by Isaiah Doctor Ross. A mixture ofdiverse Blodwyn Pig and Mick Abrahams solo cuts are spread over thealbum including the folky Gnatz, the delta blues Leaving Home Bluesand the rollicking You Got It Wrong amongst others.
Much of blues music has been a simple format to follow but for an artistto truly define their own style, as Abrahams has so masterfully done,it takes years of dedication and experience. Enjoy Cat Squirrel Bluesas an authentic British blues legend taking on timeless classics as wellas his own classics.
