Giants of Rock, Day Three
Venue: Butlins, Minehead
It's the final furlong at Butlins: Manfred Mann, Climax Blues Band, Roger Chapman, Bernie Marsden and more...
In the wake of those scenes of excess witnessed in the bars and at different stages on Saturday night – Classic Rock photographer Kevin Nixon later uses the word “carnage” – the smooth sounds of the Climax Blues Band provide a formidable hangover cure.
Their mix of jazz, blues, and soft-rock is warm, smooth and, yes… let’s say it how it is… undemanding, but the likes of I’m Ready, Last Chance Saloon and the 1976 hit Couldn’t Get It Right contrive to massage away those tight knots, reminding us that it might okay to start all over again.
