Lies - The reconstituted Blodwyn Pig, consisting of Mick Abrahams (lead vocals, guitars), Graham Walker (drums), Dave Lennox (keyboards, vocals) and Mike Summerland (bass, vocals), with Jackie Challoner (backing vocals) and Nick Payne (harmonica, saxes). This is more of a soul band than the original Blodwyn Pig, leaving jazz and progressive rock behind on this album. Apart from the superb title track, there's a ton of R&B-styled material here, all played and sung hard but well, with a level of maturity that only adds to the depth of the performances. In addition to originals by Abrahams there are covers of songs by Doc Pomus and Dr  John (The Victim) and Alexis Korner (I Wonder Who), the latter one of a pair of live tracks reuniting Abrahams with his former bandmates Clive Bunker and Andy Pyle. A great studio album from the man. The title track, Lies, and Deadman's Hill are still part of Mick's live shows today. Some excellent guitar work from Mick once again, and some fine songs.

8. Aby's Lean 9. The Victim 10. Love Won't Let You Down 11. Dead Man's Hill 12. Maggie Rose
