Hookfoot - Live In Memphis USA 72

Hookfoot was a quintet formed at the end of the '60s as a recording unit by a half-dozen session players associated with Dick James' publishing and later with his DJM Records label. They never made much of an impression on the charts, despite their work being licensed to A&M Records, through which they released four LPs in the U.S.A. Ian Duck (vocals, harmonica), Dave Glover (bass), Roger Pope (drums, vocals), and Caleb Quaye (guitar, vocals) were the original lineup, with Bob Kulick (guitar, vocals) coming in alongside Quaye, and Fred Gandy joining on bass later. ~ Bruce Eder

This CD is a sensation because these are the first available live recordings from the band, prepared maybe from the only tapes which have survived the time. One of the most underrated bands from the early 1970's delivers great guitar rock, played in the legendary Ardent Studios for a Radio Show. Malesch
