One of Britain's top session guitarists of the '70s (even participating in records by the furry Wombles!), Chris Spedding has had a truly aberrant solo career. A veteran of numerous outfits starting in the '60s, Spedding made several LPs under his own name before joining Andy Fraser's post-Free band, Sharks, who made two hard-rocking LPs in 1973 and '74. (Spedding also played on one of Sharks vocalist Snips' subsequent solo outings.) After that band split, Spedding released a succession of LPs that combine exquisite rock guitar with lackluster vocals and songs so vapid as to be virtually nonexistent. The highlight of Chris Spedding is a novelty item called "Guitar Jamboree" which features Spedding aping various guitar heroes in a show of chameleonlike virtuosity. TrouserPress
This album was issued in cd, lp & tape by Fan Club (a division of the New Rose label , in charge of re-release material with kind of 'historical' interest : mainly music that have already been issued somewhere in the past, that happened to be long out of print, but linked with the spirit of the New Rose thang) in 1991 : it's a live album taken from different shows all over the years (1977 to 1989) !
Thanks to Alain !
