SAME OLD SOUPBONE - KID THOMAS and his ALGIERS STOMPERS
IT'S BACK! Long awaited re-issue of this iconic album!
What you hear here will transport you back to a bright, sunny day in October 1968 and to the Kid Thomas Valentine Algiers Stompers virtually at their peak. The music is vintage Thomas with his standard line-up. As he always did he would just begin a tune and the band would pick it up. They knew what he was going to play from the first few notes. This was a cohesive session, the whole group in fine form and a relaxed setting. The music just flowed nicely, with no commentary between tunes.
The personnel for this session were: Kid Thomas Valentine trumpet,
Louis Nelson trombone, Manny Paul tenor sax, Charlie Hamilton piano, Joe 'Twat' Butler string bass and Sammy Penn drums.
