Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation - To Mum, From Aynsley and The Boys 1969
I never have had the ear to tell the good drummers from the great drummers, but one thing for sure it seems every recording line up that included Aynsley Dunbar always shined. In this case we are treated to a good set of blues driven by the edition of Tommy Eyre on keyboards. The progressions as expected are easy to follow, but the heavy vocals of Victor Brox on top of accented organ and piano riffs entertain the listener to no end. My favorite is the soulful "Don't Take the Power Away". I don't know if this is the first Retaliation album to try, but if you like John Mayall British Blues type music this would be a good addition.
