blues rock clapton kossoff

The lossless version of this seminal album has long been unavailable as a torrent,and it is for this reason, I am passing on the favor and re-uploading it-having previously d/l it a few years ago. 

Martha Velez was a operatically trained singer who migrated to the harder edged blues/rock sound. Somehow she consorted with Jimi Henrix, who invited her to attend Woodstock with him. For some reason she declined and never cracked the commercial ceiling.

Her talents were sufficient that the producer (Mike Vernon-who produced the 'Beano' Bluesbreaker album with Mayall/Clapton) managed to recruit no only Clapton....BUT also Paul Kossoff, and even Jimmy Page. But due to a prior commitment, Page could not make the recording sessions. Clapton and Kossoff however did...and you can easily hear their unmistakeable contributions.
