The Grease Band: The Grease Band [Shelter, 1970]
Can these be the same guys who backed Joe Cocker? From producer and pseudonymous pianist Chris Stainton I expected better--but not, I guess, from vocalist-composer (formerly just guitarist) Henry McCullough. The Band gets away with putting a nonsinger up front by shuffling five of them, and all five nonsing with more passion and style than Henry. And though like Henry they construct their songs out of used materials, they do that with passion and style too.
