Dave Peace Quartet - Good Morning Mr Blues (Saga FID2155)

Ever since I can remember I've had a copy of the Dave Peace Quartet’s Good Morning Mr Blues LP in the collection. Judging by some of the prices reached on Ebay, this LP appears to be quite rare. It's notable for being one of the early blues LPs featuring the young Dave Pegg on bass, who later went on to have success in both Fairport Convention and Jethro Tull. Before joining Fairport, immediately after the departure of Ashley Hutchings, Peggy was involved in various Midlands-based outfits including The Crawdaddies, Dave And The Emeralds, The Exception and most famously the Ian Campbell Folk Group. The Dave Peace Quartet never achieved any real success during their time together but this 1969 LP still continues to pop up in auction listings and provides a nostalgic glimpse at the Birmingham blues boom of the late 1960s.
