The A-side is straight blues rock, with the emphasis on blues. None of the tracks are terribly exciting. I can’t tell which Peter Green composition “You’ve Changed My Way of Living” is trying to rip off, and I’ve got no clue what that flute’s doing on “Now I Know”.

The B-side is… also straight blues rock (what’s that psychedelic rock tag doing up there?), albeit jammier. But they’re both slow blues numbers, done tastefully. And unfortunately, “tastefully” here translates to “dull”.

Alexis gets some nice jabs in on “Stormy Monday”, but I love that song too much to hear Mr. Gruff-what’s-his-name amble his way through the words as he does here.

It’s sorta decent, but the average rating seems WAY too high. “ 1969 killer…! Swedish Psychedelic Blues

In November 1968 the Beefeaters played on the Danish tour of Alexis Korner who joined them as guitarist and lead-vocalist on two tracks of their second annum Represented ihrough the introduction of the Gemían ulule by ‘Thorup, this period showed a more jazz-oriented side of the Beefeaters. In May 1969 Thorup left the Beefeaters lo live and work in England. Ile joined Korner to forra New Church, C.C.S. and Snape, the taller even for a U.S. tour. In 1973 Thorup returned to Denmark where - apart from his solo alburas - countless jobs as sideman, stucho musician or producen for the vide-spread Danish music scene from the Young Flowers to Sanne Salomonsen always are keeping him very busy. While Korner is called Father of13ritish Blues, Thorup is candidato as Father of Danish Blues. This he can claim contrary to his start as a professional musician at the early age of 13 years - then being rather a son not a Eather. The first of many more peaks to fbIlow in his carcer was the nomination for the #1 Danish Blues singer at the age of 19. Record collectors should look out for Thorup’s first solo albura featuring Kjazumgard, “Nhuthzhi”, Nils Ilenriksen and Erik Stcdt Rastnussen of the 13eefeaters plus members of the Young Flowers, the Black Pools, Maxwells’ and Burnin’ Red Ivanhoe - Ole Christian Eich. The cover was designed by Eich and ex¬Beefeater Madsen. This last available document with the Beefeaters was produccd by Thorup for “Ale¬xis Korner Productions” being published in many countries. To sum up the history of the Beefeaters, Fich - ex-Burnin’ Red Ivanhoe replaced Thorup in May 1969 as load-vocalist and -guitarist. When Folgersen quit in aulumn 1969. the group was re-joined hy founder member Scirup. This line-up recorded the soundtrack for “Smil Fruti” and the cinema commcrcial for “Jolly Cola”. By turn of the year 1969/1970, Eral beeame seriously ill to be replaced by I lenriksen - ex¬liam. At the same time, Nielsen was replaced by Carsten Smedegárd - ex-l- eethovens on drums. Stedt - pre-Day of Phoenix joined on hass in the middle of 1970 to replacc Eolgersen. I ich returned alter recovery, and the Beefeaters carried on as a sextet until they finally disbanded in 1971.1Pocod Musica ……

Beefeaters The first side offers exceptional blues rock similar to peter green’s fleetwood mac but with flute , the three songs there feature fantastic vocals from peter thorup and are underrated classics. In the second side the music becomes more jazz progressive and a bit tedious , the vocals on the last song come from alexis korner and the whole result is mediocre. My opinion is they should have recorded more songs with thorup’s vocals. No psychedelic music here ofcourse but some great blues rock. …….
