Climax Chicago Blues Band

Led by Colin Cooper, the former frontman of the R&B unit the Hipster Image, the Stafford, England-based Climax Chicago Blues Band were one of the leading lights of the late-'60s blues boom. A sextet also comprised of guitarists Derek Holt and Peter Haycock, keyboardist Arthur Wood, bassist Richard Jones, and drummer George Newsome, the group debuted in 1969 with a self-titled effort recalling the work of John Mayall. Prior to the release of 1969's Plays On, Jones left the group, prompting Holt to move to bass. In 1970 the Climax Chicago Blues Band moved to the Harvest label, at the same time shifting toward a more rock-oriented sound on the LP A Lot of Bottle. Around the release of 1971's Tightly Knit, Newsome was replaced by drummer John Holt; upon Wood's exit in the wake of 1972's Rich Man, the unit decided to continue on as a quartet, also dropping the "Chicago" portion of its moniker to avoid confusion with the American band of the same name. In 1974 the Climax Blues Band issued FM Live, a document of a New York radio concert. Released in 1975, Stamp was their commercial breakthrough, and 1976's Gold Plated fared even better, spurred on by the success of the hit "Couldn't Get It Right." However, the rise of punk effectively stopped the Climax Blues Band in their tracks, although they continued recording prolifically well into the 1980s; after 1988's Drastic Steps, the group was silent for a number of years, but resurfaced in 1994 with Blues from the Attic. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Personally, I think this is a pretty nice blues band - from what I've heard thus far. At least, they aren't just another Albert King imitator. I hate Albert King's brand of blues, although I do respect him for revolutioniz i n g the guitar solo that is prevalent in rock and metal music.

Great song!

I have always found this band to be annoying. They are just going through the motions, like an imitation blues band instead of
one with any originality. Thumbs down

Also appreciated are the albums Sense of Direction, Flying the Flag, Real to Reel and Lucky for Some. It was a great loss when Colin Cooper passed. 'So many roads....so many trains to ride'.

I saw Climax 5 times back in their Rich Man through Gold Plated heyday. They'd come to Seattle year after year. My gang considered them the best band out there.
