Chris Farlowe, one of the U.K.’s finest blues/rock singers, is gifted with a remarkably powerful voice, much admired by fans and fellow artists alike. He first came to fame in the Sixties with The Thunderbirds and also achieved a Number One solo hit single ‘Out Of Time’ in 1966, written for him by the Rolling Stones. His solo career was boosted in 1970 by the release of ‘From Here To Mama Rosa’ a uniquely personal album, full of excellent original songs. Now available on this essential Repertoire LP, we hear the blues shouter in a new light, as he tackles progressive arrangements like ‘Head In The Clouds’, ‘Winter Of My Life’ and ‘Mama Rosa’ backed by The Hill, with Peter Robinson (keyboards) and Steve Hammond (guitar). Hailed by critics as a classic of progressive rock, the album has extensive new sleeve notes with Chris Farlowe telling the stories behind the songs.
