Just picked up this album last week, Buddy has a huge Afro on the cover, sat behind a drum set.

Was the title track - Them Changes - ever played? It is absolutely brilliant, album comes from 1970?

Did it come out on a 45?

Might have got some spins on the London funk scene. Don't ever recall hearing it up North.

Check out Miles In Blue. The greatest jazz album ever made. Makes a good day better, and a bad day liveable with.

Don't imagine that the northern scene would ever embrace "Them Changes" (unless it was played in Northampton in 1969...) Yes it did come out on a Mercury 45, and in the UK as well. There are a shedload of great Buddy Miles 45s on Mercury - none of them really Northern, but all great nonetheless. Try "Wholesale Love" and "Give Away None Of My Love" (both Otis Redding songs) or Buddy's fab version of Rufus Thomas' "Memphis Train", produced by Steve Cropper.

Big John Hamilton and Doris Allen did a good cut to "Them Changes" on Minaret. Best version by far, though, of "Them Changes" is the one Buddy himself cut with Jimi Hendrix and Billy Cox, on the "Band Of Gypsys" LP. With Jimi on guitar, how could it not be?
