One of the most exciting bands of the British Blues Boom era, Steamhammer was powered up by guitarist Martin Pugh and vocalist Kieran White. After gaining a reputation for steaming 'live' performances they were signed to CBS and released 'Reflection' their debut album in 1969.

It's packed with dynamic performances, including 'Junior's Wailing' - a track released as a Steamhammer single that became a hit in Germany. It was also successfully covered by Status Quo. Also among the 11 tracks on the CD are versions of B.B.King's 'You'll Never Know' and Eddie Boyd's 'Twenty Four Hours' and a two part arrangement called 'Water', that introduces and completes a satisfying album.

There were more albums and tours to come from Steamhammer and quite a few personnel changes before they finally broke up in 1975. 'Reflection' gives us a chance to reflect on the origins of these fondly remembered Bluesicians.
