Notes:

Chicken Shack are a British blues band, founded in the mid-1960s by Stan Webb (guitar and vocals), Andy Silvester (bass guitar), and Alan Morley (drums), who were later joined by Christine Perfect (vocals and keyboards) in 1968. Bob Daisley joined on bass in 1972. He returned to the band in 1979.

To celebrate Bob's birthday a live recording of a Chicken Shack gig from 1975 is being released today, February 13th 2015. Supplies of this CD are strictly limited, they will be available in 2 weeks priced at 7.99 + P&P for 78 minutes of a great gig. Here's what Bob has to say about the recording...

This show epitomises Chicken Shack at the time raw Blues, Rhythm and Blues and a bit of Funk thrown in. It was my second stint with Stan Webb, I'd been with the Shack from early 1972 until mid '73, when I left to join Mungo Jerry, which didn't quite satisfy my lust for real Blues, hence my return to Stan. On this show Stan and I are joined by the aptly named Bob Clouter on drums and Robbie Blunt on slide guitar. Robbie went on to be Robert Plant's guitarist in the early '80s after Led Zeppelin became defunct. Stan was a legend, and is still highly regarded by many of his Blues peers. This lineup, to me, was one of the best, we'd been gigging a lot, our musical communication was almost telepathic. Stan and the 'three Bobs' were on tour with Deep Purple and an American band called Elf. Their lead singer, Ronnie James Dio, and I ended up in a band called Rainbow two years later with Deep Purple's discontented lead guitarist, Ritchie Blackmore. During our time touring with Deep Purple in March 1975, we did some shows on our own in small theatres and clubs; this is a recording of one of them. In those days bands used to jam on songs when they played live, so this is typical of how we played the basic structure of a song then improvised and had fun with it; I'm very proud of how we sound on this. At the end of our show the tape ran out, but only the tail-end of the last song was lost. So until that point comes, sit back, relax and enjoy; these are 'those days'...
