AFFINITY Origins: The Baskervilles 1965 Angel Air SJPCD238 (2007)


The fourth Affinity-related album resurrected by the venerable Angel Air, this time from college gig and rehearsal tapes back in 1965.

Originally called the US Jazz Trio, this is the band that nurtured Mo Foster, later to become an ace sessionist with the likes of Jeff Beck as well as solo performer in his own right.

The quality of the first set, from a Christmas Ball 1965 at the University of Sussex, is superb both musically and sonically, betraying its ancient origins, but there is no original material as you'd perhaps expect given the nature of the gig.

Essentially it's a covers collection that doesn't even hint at the jazz rock route subsequently taken, but features the hits of the day including the Fab Four.

A selection of lower-fi tracks from various rehearsals in 1965 are for the completist rather than the curious, and three tracks from a Chemistry Society Christmas party in 1965 rounds things out.

If you've followed the Affinity reissue programme you will want to add this to your now happily expanded collection.
