By the summer of 1971 Mighty Baby had shed their psychedelic trappings and taken a more spiritual, reflective approach. Newly signed to Mike Vernon’s Blue Horizon label, they prepared the material for their second and final album, A Jug Of Love, in a basement in Harley Road, North London, ahead of sessions in Sound Techniques that July and August.
This is the only known recording of them in rehearsal. Taped on Ian Whitemans’ Revox with a single microphone, it’s entirely instrumental (“We weren’t great singers, anyway,” he wryly states), and offers a remarkable insight into the workings of one of Britain’s best-loved underground labels.
