Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger and the Trinity but not Grace Slick

I discovered this dusty LP in my collection and had no idea where it came from so I stuck it on.

Its sound can pretty much be summed up as swinging 60s London psychedelia. Brian Auger was a very good keyboard player (“organist” as my Dad said) and Julie Driscoll was a Felicity Kensington-esque shagadelic model who did guest vocals on this. It’s half covers (This Wheel’s on Fire, Season of the Witch, Tramp) and half original stuff. It’s makes for a pretty good listen as a “sound of an era” type thing. Her voice really reminds me of Grace Slick.

Ade Edmunson asked her to re-record her version of This Wheel’s on Fire for the Absolutely Fabulous theme tune (which is the first time I ever heard it!).
