    The Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation ‎– Doctor Dunbar's Prescription........LP

    The Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation's second album was much the same as their first, offering competent late-'60s British blues, given a slightly darker cast than was usual for the style via Victor Brox's somber vocals. Like their debut, it was dominated by original material, and as on its predecessor, the compositions were rather routine blues-rock numbers, though they benefited from arrangements by highly skilled players. The best of these tracks were the ones that utilized Brox's gloomy, almost gothic organ, if only because it made them stand out more among the company of the many similar bands recording in the prime of the British blues boom. Otherwise the main fare was straightforward blues-rock that was well played, but rather average and forgettable, the most distinguished ingredient being Dunbar's hard-hitting, swinging drums. If only because it has some original songs that were better than anything on the first album ("Fugitive," "Till Your Lovin' Makes Me Blue," and "Tuesday's Blues," the last of which has some songwriting and guitar work quite similar to Peter Green's late-'60s style in those departments), it's a slightly better listen, though not up to the standards of somewhat similar groups like Fleetwood Mac and John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers.

    Sade_-_Soldier_of_Love_%28album%29.png

    I played a lot of Sade at LSAF this year!

    I used to listen to the best of Sade CD when I brought home new (used) speakers from Goodwill or yard-sales. The tone of her songs and rhythm and bass seem so well recorded.

    I need to put one of her Cds into my player and see how the Def. Tech. BP30s sound with her songs playing. B) I'm sure I'll like it a lot!
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.
