Crate Digger’s Gold Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express – Second Wind

February 18, 2012

Over that last year I have picked up several bargain Brian Auger used LPs for a buck or two.  Everyone of them has been fantastic and this one does not disappoint.  This is from the early 70s and you can see how influential this group was on the jazz rock that followed them.

Some of the Oblivion Express vocals can be kind of cheesy, but Alex Ligertwood (who went on to fame with Santana) is a great vocalist on this LP.  He reminds me a lot of Steve Winwood – which is a great vocal type to have with this kind of music.

Start the incense, dim the lights and put on this LP.  You will be feeling groovy shortly.
