For me the second half of the 60s was as much about British Blues (as opposed to what I call authentic blues) as it was psychedelia. Keef Hartley was the drummer with John Mayall's Blues Band until he was sacked in 1968, whereupon he formed the Keef Hartley Band. This track, Born To Die, is from their excellent 1969 album, Halfbreed. Keef and his band played at Woodstock in 1969 but were the only act there whose act was not recorded for either the film or any soundtrack of the festival - apparently Keef's manager refused filming consent as Martin Scorese wouldn't provide any money up front, and so the recording equipment was switched off, which in hindsight was probably a bit of a tragedy for Keef. The guitar solo is by Ian Cruickshank who subsequently became a leading exponent of Django Rheinhardt style gypsy jazz, which in some ways is a bit sad because he played a mean blues guitar.

This sort of music perhaps takes me back more than any other to those fabulous 60s years.


Scottish and European, not British.

Sure one of Keef's bands supported Love at the Free Trade Hall, Manchester in the early 70s
