Last night I saw "Big Brother And The Holding Company" after a long and unbearable wait. I'd heard they were good, but they were incredible.
I was amazed by how great they sounded. To good for words to descirbe. I can't even define the music (soul / funk / rock / disco / country / blues / more or less everything). The guitarists and the drummer were really cool, and so was the singer. It must be a tough job to "replace" Janis Joplin but the singer had a beautiful voice, and nearly blew the roof off the venue.
But, Peter Albin left me lost for words. He played some really funky bass lines and played a million fills (all of which sounded sweet). The bass lines to "Summertime" and "Ball and Chain" nearly made me faint with over-excitement. Maybe that's a slight exageration !
Does anybody know anything about this bassist?
Has he played with any other bands?
I'd love to hear more of his work.
