Back Door - Back Door 1973 (Repost)

Biography: Released by the band on the Blakey label in 1972 and then re-released by Warner in 1973, this instrumental album is impressive from start to finish, and a veritable catalog of bass guitar technique. Aspery's funky sax and flute work leaves the bottom end completely open to the bass guitar, and Hodgkinson's use of strummed chords is ably backed by his bandmates on the squalling opener "Vienna Breakdown." The mel-low fon-kay bass solo, "Lieutenant Loose," makes effective use of ringing open strings, while "Slivadiv" is a fret-hammering delight. If you're a bassist, be forewarned: listening to this album is a deeply humbling experience.

Many thanks for your quick response, Solidboy. This is one of those albums from my teenage years that I haven't heard in years. Back Door were one of the many new groups spun by John Peel on Top Gear back in the day....indeed, his shows were the soundtrack to my youth, and I picked up a large part of my early musical grounding from what he played. Again, cheers.
