Mighty Baby - Tasting The Life: Live 1971 (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-Sunbeam 5064
A quite good quality (for the time period) live recording that have never been released before. This is somewhere between the wild, late-period psychedelia of their 1st album and a jammy mix that is reminscent of the original Allman Brothers at their most stretched out and improvisational. Really nice and includes a 22' track based on John Coltrane's India.

"Mighty Baby are one of the best-loved bands to have emerged from Britain's late 1960s underground, and this is the fullest live recording of them in existence. Taped as they opened for Quintessence at Malvern's Winter Gardens on February 20th, 1971, the set finds the quintet poised between the driving psychedelia of their 1969 debut and the more contemplative sound of their second and final album, A Jug Of Love. It's rounded off by two bonus tracks recorded at Glastonbury in June of the same year, and comes complete with a booklet featuring rare images and notes from band members Ian Whiteman and Mike Evans, making it an essential artefact for the Babe's many admirers.

"A top-flight experimental group featuring long, fluid guitar lines and radiant harmonies."-All Music Guide

"Their improvisatory prowess was even greater on live performances, where Martin Stone's imaginative soloing combined with Ian Whiteman's woodwind and keyboard passages to create a mesmerizing sound."-NME
