Laurence Scott played in “Brian Knight’s Blues by Six” in the early sixties. When Long John Baldry disbanded the “Hootchie Cootchie Men” and Brian disbanded “Blues by Six”, Brian and Scotty joined the nucleus of Baldrey’s line-up to form “The Original Allstars”. They broke up in 1966 and Scotty was musically inactive until 1972 when he joined Stomu Yamashta, and then Gary Boyle/Hugh Hopper in “Isotope” touring the world. In 1983, he re-joined Brian forthe Silver Anniversary celebrations of the Marquee Club for a “Blues by Six” reunion and they have been together ever since. Brian and Scotty were joined for this exclusive recording by Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac) – Lead Guitar, Ian Stewart and Charlie Watts (Rolling Stones) – Piano, Charlie Hart – Bass. Scotty plays with the authenticity of the early blues pianists, a style very few people have been able to master.

Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones gave his approval of the project with an exclusive signature: “…Good to hear the fruits of Brian’s total artistic control on this album. The result is uninterfered with back to the roots blues. Brian is one of the greatest guitar specialists. The track with Charlie and Stu brought back memories. Brian was playing with the Stones boys when I was still with my first band, The Birds….”.
