(March 29, 2017): Albert Hammond – Smokey Factory Blues

K-SHE Classic. From the 1973 album, The Electric Free Band.  Hammond was born in London, but grew up in Gibraltar. He started recording in 1966 and is still going. He has a new LP due to be released this October. Hammond became a frequent collaborator with Mike Hazelwood in the 1970s. All the tunes on this LP were written by both. Larry Carlton makes a surprising appearance on guitar here too. Hammond is the father of Albert Hammond, Jr. of the Strokes.
