FAIRWEATHER Beginning From An End Estoric (2008)


The fey album cover suggests pop with a dash of psych or folk. It fibs: this is tough, jazzy horn and organ-fuelled transatlantic rock distinguished by the soulful vocal and guitarwork of mainman Andy Fairweather-Low in a short-lived 1970 outing with former colleagues Blue Weaver, Clive Taylor and Dennis Byron from Welsh '60's pop charting band, Amen Corner.

In keeping with the mood of the times, Fairweather took the progressive route, signing with the nascent and to-be equally brief Neon label. Far from the twiddly constructs peddled by most Brit prog acts of the day, it's funky and heavy, something to grace the plate of the Chicago meatpacker.

Singalong single "Natural Sinner" - a Top Ten hit for the band - is here, as is a version of fellow taff Dave Edmunds "I Hear You Knockin'," (with Dave guesting). This reissue takes in the original album plus six tracks from the three singles, 24-bit remastered to boot. Quality time for lovers of music, bold and brassy of horn.
