Music today is the classic Groundhogs album Split (1971) which was a Record Store Day double album release with outtakes that record nerds love. The band is Tony McPhee, guitar and vocals, Pete Cruikshank, bass and Ken Pustlenick on drums. They are a blues-inspired power trio but with lots of mad energy and great guitar playing. Mick Jagger asked for them to support the Stones on the 1971 tour and between 1968 and 1976 they made 9 worthy albums. If you haven’t heard Cherry Red from Split, then lucky you to hear it for the first time.
