(Alan Price - From Animal to Lucky Man)
A jump into the mellower parts of the late 70s tonight. A set from Alan Price, recorded by the BBC from the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester in 1979.
I have always enjoyed Alan Price, going back to his days with Eric Burdon and The Animals. His music has gone through a lot of transformation over the years, from Blues to Funk to Pop to Jazz to Soundtracks - all of it well crafted and most of it pretty memorable, even after three decades since this concert was recorded.
I think it's safe to say he is probably not very well known to the music listening public of the past ten or so years. But that's not to say it's not worth the 55+ minutes to dig around and immerse yourself in something you're not familiar with. Right?
