During the sixties, there was the British blues boom containing many blues bands, one of the finest being Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac. In January of 1969, Fleetwood Mac were at Chess Studios, Chicago, jamming with the likes of Willie Dixon, Honeyboy Edwards, S.P. Leary, J.T. Brown and longtime Muddy Waters pianist Otis Spann. The end result of those sessions was the classic double album Blues Jam At Chess.
The rapport between Mac and Otis Spann was such that they recorded another whole album together, The Biggest Thing Since Colossus. Otis Spann is his usual emotive and exciting self, feeling totally relaxed alongside his regular drummer, S.P. Leary. This coupled with Peter Green’s guitar playing, which is probably at its peak on these recordings, makes for a blue album of substance. The Biggest Thing Since Colossus is probably one of the most underrated blues albums. Long out of print.
