Big Jim Sullivan Band - Test Of Time (1983 Street Tunes) 

Artist: Big Jim Sullivan Band
Album: Test Of Time
Label: Street Tunes
Catalog#: STLP 0011
Format: Vinyl, LP, Album
Country: UK
Released: 1983
Genre: Jazz, Rock, Blues
Duration: 00:47:38

Originally intended as the third Tiger album, this album was recorded in 1977 but tapes were shelved until 1983 when Street Tunes records (which also released singles by The Nicky Moore band) released it and credited it to "The Big Jim Sullivan Band". Line up was formed around Big Jim Sullivan and Nicky Moore prolific team, plus an all-star bunch including Les Walker, Mo Foster, Percy Jones, Simon Philips and Dave Lawson, and with legendary producer Mike Vernon on the boards. Musically is much better than the classic Tiger albums, based on Jazz Rock/Fusion, and showing incredible guitar work by Big Jim. Very rare on vinyl, was released on CD sometime ago and should be checked by all UK 70's Rock fans as this is one of the better works the great Big Jim Sullivan recorded. (RYM)
