After a period of personal and professional reassessment, Mick Taylor emerged from the shadows of his classic stint in the Rolling Stones with his first solo album. Mix Stonesy rock and blues with Jeff Beck’s Blow by Blow and the resulting stew will sound something like Mick Taylor’s eponymous debut.

A great cast of musicians also show up to support Mr. Taylor, including Lowell George (Little Feat), Pierre Moerlen (Gong) and keyboardist Jean Roussell (Cat Stevens).

After a long absence this much overlooked release returns to compact disc with a fresh mastering from Grammy®-award winning engineer, Vic Anesini and liner notes by Kris Needs. Release includes a very rare, promo-only single version of “Leather Jacket” with different guitar parts as a bonus track.
