Knights of the Blues Table
Mick Clarke - Guitar / Vocals
Lou Martin - Keyboards
Mick and Lou joined an all star line-up for this tribute to the British harp player Cyril Davies. Produced by Pete Brown, known for his work with Piblokto and as co writer of many of Cream's hits, it features tracks from Jack Bruce, Georgie Fame, Mick Jagger, Peter Green and many other top British blues artists.
Mick writes: "We had a great relaxing session in this beautiful studio working with very professional people. We did the old James Cotton song "One More Mile" which came out well. It was only on the way home in the car that I suddenly realised I'd sung some of the wrong lyrics, despite knowing the correct ones perfectly well. It's haunted me ever since! Nevertheless it's a nice track with some stunning piano from Lou.
The session itself was a pleasure - when we got there the previous line-up was just packing up and I got to meet the great Dick Heckstall-Smith briefly - what a nice man he was. Thanks to all involved for a great afternoon".
