Black Cat Bones - Barbed Wire Sandwich 1969

Totally killer psychedelic blues rock album released in November 1969. The original viny version of the album is now highly sough after by collectors of heavy blues of the late 60's-early 70's. Out of London, Black Cat Bones was one of those bands that served as an incubator for it's various members later rock incarnations. In this case bands like Free, Foghat, and Bad Company drew members of Black Cat Bones. They released an eponymous single in 1969, and the one album Barbed Wire Sandwich before they split and went on their separate ways.  Straight forward raw and gritty blues which sounds full, rich, and immediate. With a new drummer, Black Cat Bones metamorphosed in to Leaf Hound. Zeppelin-esque heavy rockers who, like their predecessors, released one excellent album before disbanding.
