Hemlock - Hemlock (1973)

EAC | CD Image | APE+CUE+LOG+Covers | 234 mb+3% recovery
The band's best-known member was Miller Anderson who, apart from recording a solo album back in 1971, was also in The Voice, At Last The 1958 Rock'n'Roll Show, Keef Hartley Band (all pre-Hemlock) and Dog Soldier (1975). He now lives in Shoreham-By-Sea and has been performing regularly with Spencer Davis Group as well as recently guesting on a Jon Lord solo album, "Pictured Within".
More or less a vehicle for Anderson's songwriting output (he wrote all of the album's material), Hemlock sounds by no means artificial or put-together. Rather, they were a typical British blues act, without the requisite posing. Naturally, the atmosphere is very serious and dominated by Mick Weaver's passionate organ-playing.

Hi Alex, This release was pretty scarce in the U.S.on orig. vinyl.
In all my many years of collecting I only recall seeing maybe twice and it was costly.
Around $30 U.S.
This was way before the internet mind you.
Always like Miller's voice and playing.
Hell he even had a stint in the latterday T.Rex.
