It's taken me eons to get around to buying Live at Leeds '71 by The Groundhogs, having been a fan since the 70's. For some reason, I've just always skipped over it. It landed on my doorstep yesterday and, I have to say, it's superb. The album was recorded by the Rolling Stones mobile unit during The Hogs' support set for The Stones; the tapes were given to head Hog, Tony McPhee, by Mick Jagger. This band could rock like almost no other back then and really should have been a much bigger name than they were; McPhee's guitar alone is worth more than the price of entry. I always think The Groundhogs were the missing link between blues rock and punk. Big influence on Joy Division/New Order and Mark E. Smith is a fan, by all accounts. How come there are so many great live albums called Live at Leeds (The Who, The Hogs, John Martyn, plus the Wailers recorded a fine set there - perhaps there are more?)?
