I wasn't actually sure where to classify this. Most tracks are in the Northern Soul vein, yet personnel hails from other genres.

Anyway....
Fans of Ritchie Blackmore would probably know this album. It was recorded in 1970 in De Lane Lea studios, London, and it allegedly began as a session jam. Ritchie Blackmore, Albert Lee, Big Jim Sullivan & Tony Ashton are among the musicians. It was produced by Derek Lawrence and engineered by Martin Birch. The tracks are mostly in the Northern Soul style, as I mention above, and production quality is fairly good. The musicians are in a loose form and Blackmore doesn't really sound very decent, since he manages to overindulge in those fast-and-tedious riffs as well as tremolo bar abuse. I, personally, prefer soul music played by musicians who have an actual understanding of the particular groove. And the musicians in this album don't have it, in my opinion. Simply because their actual genre is quite different.

I bought the particular album in green vinyl (1991 reissue) and it contains some extra tracks from the vaults. Rip is in 224kbps and I have also scanned all the notes from the sleeve.
