One of the pillars of British blues
One of the few regrets I have in life is missing the opportunity to see Long John Baldry perform live. I became a fan via my obsession with all things Elton John, and my love for LJB's music and voice still rivals my attachment to his one-time protege. While not as polished as Good to Be Alive or as power-packed as It Ain't Easy, Everything Stops for Tea is still a gem. It's worth the price just for his breathtaking version of Wild Mountain Thyme, or the rolicking rendition of Seventh Son. This is one album that shows Baldry's voice at its best, and is a must-have for the hard-core British blues lover.
