Riding on the L&N The Anthology
The Steamhammer story began in the English south coast town of Worthing in 1967, and ended in 1972 after fourth album ‘Speech’ and the sudden death of drummer Mick Bradley. In between times they wowed ballroom and festival audiences with a bluesy, sometimes jazz-flavoured brand of rock, that went down particularly well in Europe.
This anthology features all their best tracks, including ‘Junior’s Wailing’, a hit single in Germany (a cover version was, for many years, a staple of contemporaries Status Quo’s act). It also includes two extended ‘live’ tracks, ‘Riding On The L&N’ and ‘Hold That Train’, that hint at the band’s power on stage.
Booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes written by respected ‘Record Collector’ journalist Michael Heatley.
