I must admit that I'm in this mainly for Julie Driscoll. I consider her one of the best female singers in Britain in the late s. Also, unlike most female singers at the time, she was a talented songwriter too. Brian Auger is a fine organist, sure, but I'm not that keen on his stuff unless Driscoll's singing is there. I think Driscoll is underappreciated these days. One big reason for that, in my opinion, is that she quit music for a while at the tail end of the sixties when this band broke up.
She soon got back doing more music, but she went in a different experimental jazz direction under the name Julie Tippetts that generally isn't my cup of tea. Driscoll and Auger put out a bunch of singles of songs that didn't make it to album at the time.
I have seven such songs here, some Driscoll solo, some Auger solo, and some with both of them and the Trinity. There are a handful more on the second stray tracks album I'll be posting here, including their big hit "This Wheel's on Fire.
Plus there's "This Driving Beat," which only came out decades later on an archival release. It's a fun and lively song; too bad it wasn't a single. Finally, there are a couple of still unreleased songs. Czechoslovakia 3. Take Me To The Water 4. A Word About Colour 5. Light My Fire 6. Indian Rope Man 7.
