From Skid Row to Beasley Street
Rewind is another Ballantrae acquisition, a compilation CD comprising of 12 seemingly random artists and songs
It starts with some Blues rock from Chicken Shack, Skid Row , Fleetwood Mac and Argent.
Then a bit of psychedelia courtesy of Donovan and Spirit .
The Only Ones are next up followed by Ian Hunter, John Cale, the Walker Brothers and New Musik (no, me neither).
The best is saved for last with an appearance by the good Doctor.
A 17 year old Gary Moore is on guitar on the Skid Row track.
Reading the sleeve notes it turns out this is a sampler for Rewind a series of re-issues of classic recordings on the Columbia label which makes things slightly less confusing.
Skid Row -Unco-op Showband Blues
