Chris Farlowe was one of the hottest young British artists to emerge from the Sixties R&B club scene, much admired by Tom Jones and Mick Jagger. Farlowe’s band the Thunderbirds included top class musicians, notably guitarist Albert Lee and keyboard virtuoso Dave Greenslade, always given generous solo space to match Farlowe’s powerful vocals.
