If Blodwyn Pig sounds a bit like early Jethro Tull, there's a reason. Band leader, guitarist and vocalist Mick Abrahams formed the band shortly after an angry departure from Jethro Tull, shortly after Tull's first release "This Was." With Jack Lancaster (saxophone and flute), Andy Pyle (bass guitar), and Ron Berg (drums), Blodwyn Pig was heavily inspired by the blues and R&B scene in London during the 1960's. Blodwyn Pig, like another UK band, Traffic, injected a jazz feel to some of the tracks. This was due, in part, to the influence of Jack Lancaster, who found inspiration in some of the more experimental jazz artists of the time, including Rahsaan Roland Kirk (like Kirk, Lancaster sometimes played two horns at once).

A favorite of Britain's "underground" music scene, Blodwyn Pig also garnered a small, but loyal following in the US. Their music is a snapshot of a host of musical ideas that were swirling around in the late 1960's and early 1970's.

The album is just about pristine, with one note. Back in the day, I worked briefly at a free-form FM station, where I could bring in my own albums for airplay. As result, "San Francisco Sketches" and "Toys" have a bit of surface noise. But even those tracks are enjoyable to listen to.
