  Comments: by Jellybread. Stereo Version. Recorded in late 1969 at CBS Studio, New Bond Street, London. Original Release: Blue Horizon #57-3174 (A-Side). Source: Original analogue tape. Another fine fully-pro band that have just missed making a big mark on the music world. "I've received so many tapes and demo discs over the last eight years from new aspiring singers and groups it's almost enough to give you a heart attack. The waste-paper basket almost warmed to just such an acetate from a Sussex University band known as Jellybread-luckily I played it first and discovered what I thought was a winner. Four university students formed Jellybread (after the song of the same title by Booker T & the MG's) as an experiment. As an experiment it was a success; turning professional on leaving University, recording an album which was voted one of the best British blues albums by Melody Maker; a single 'Old Man Hank' which was on the top BBC playlists for five weeks and almost a chart record. Three albums and six singles later, Jellybread are still together in name, although Paul is the only original member left. Pete Wingfield left first to join the Keef Hartley Band and is now working with Colin Blunstone-but his song writing abilities as well as outstanding keyboard work have earned him much acclaim: sessions with and songs recorded by Keef Hartley, B.B. King, Jimmy Dawkins, Colin Blunstone, Lightin' Slim and top Dutch group Livin' Blues. John Best was replaced by Stuart McDonald; Chris Waters by Kenny Lamb (who used to work with Tom Jones, the Fantastics and Key Largo) and Pete's place was taken by second guitarist Rick Hayward, an original member of Argent. Jellybread is going to be a name to watch for the future." - Mike Vernon

Does some cleaning but needs to do more
Review written by John Fitzgerald, November 11th, 2004

Being a completest type of collector, I find this set both helpful and irksome at the same time as it does include John McVie's bass lines & Peter Green's guitar licks on the VERY rare Eddie Boyd tracks "It's so miserable to be alone" and it's original single B side partner (also with JM on bass & PG on guitar), "Empty arms" but they only included the A side of Boyd's "The big boat" single (so one still needs to get this single in order to have "Sent for you yesterday", another Boyd non album track with Peter, John & Mick playing on both tracks. For Otis Spann, they've included a track that was only a B side of a single previously called "Temperature is rising 98.8F" (which is a different take on "Temperature is rising 100.2F" from Spann's "The biggest thing since colossus" album) so it saves us from getting Spann's "Walkin'" single but it does not include a song called "Blues for hippies" (on which Peter, Danny & John also play) that had shown up only on a few sparse singles which was recorded at the "...colossus" sessions. Also, be warned of a track included on this box listed as "Hideaway" by Chicken shack as previously unreleased as on listening, it is clearly not "Hideaway" but it is in fact "San-Ho-Zay" from the shack's debut album "Forty blue fingers freshly packed and ready to serve". Granted, they did include a few shack non album tracks that Christine plays on (such as "When my left eye jumps") but they did not include the track on the other side of that single ("It's okay with me baby" on which she sings lead, plays piano, etc.) so you'd need to get the single anyways. David "Honeyboy" Edwards' song "My baby's gone" is listed here as "previously unreleased" but this recording has since shown up on the "Complete Blue Horizon sessions" FM box set which is more essential for Mac collectors anyways. As for the "alternate version" of the Mac's "Black magic woman" included here, it's simply just the "English rose" (no exho, but pan) mix of the song, therefore, not as rare as one may have been led to believe. With all this said, this is a good overview of the Blue Horizon label in general (as I try to see this from a general record label enthusiasts point of view) with the first disc chronicling BH's very purist beginnings on disc one, through it's high points of commercial success on disc two and flourishing in the British blues boom on disc three. With the "Vol. 1" tag, and the notation in the well written liner notes alluding to "future (reissues)" one can hope that such projects will follow suit soon and help to clean things up in regards to rabid collectors (like me) though since this box was out in 1997 and nothing (or at least very little) has happened since then, I won't hold my breath though one can only hope.
