WILSON T KING Follow Your First Mind (2009)

Having spent the last 10 years as a writer and producer for various English indie bands, Wilson T (aka Tim Wilson) became frustrated by the fact that the blues and the guitar solo had become a relic of a bygone era.

So. inspired by meeting Mitch Mitchell in a dream, Wilson T set out to record an album in homage to better days. Those when six string troubadours such as Hendrix, Duane Allman, Jeff Beck, Clapton and other sixties icons dominated the rock music scene.

As a consequence Follow Your First Mind is a lo-fi throw back to days of yore. And that is - one guitar, one voice, bass and drums. Apart from the clean production, the album sounds as if it was recorded in one take, at a stoned gig in the sixties. Which, in many ways, is praise indeed.

It's loose, spacey (even Floydian at times), goes with the flow and has a wonderful unfettered feel about it. Put simply, they don't make albums - or music - like this any more. Moody, and steeped in the [Jimi Hendrix] blues. Alternatively, you could always buy a best of the sixties bootleg.
