Lineup: John Moorshead (guitar, vocals), Victor Brox (horns, keyboards, guitar, vocals), Alex Dmochowski (bass - replaced Keith Tillman before first album) and Aynsley Dunbar (drums). The "To Mum..." album saw the addition of Tommy Eyre on organ + piano.
"Blue Whale" was a completely new ambitious project. Only Tommy Eyre followed Aynsley there.
Aynsley then left for the U.S. and joined Mothers Of Invention. Then
Journey and Jefferson Starship...
When visiting U.K. in the summer of '98 I heard rumours of an Aynsley Dunbar Trio, sometimes featuring John Moorshead. So Aynsley's back, eh?
Victor Brox Blues Train worked in Manchester in '88 to good response. Still does?
So what's the story on Alex? He toured with John Mayall in the early 70's, recorded with Peter Green on the "End Of The Game". And then? Well, at least he is a mainstay at the Earl Green's All Star Blues Jam at 'World's End', Finsbury Park!
B-Side: Dominated by driving acoustic piano. Drowns out the vocals a
bit. Good Chicago style blues guitar solo, but the recording levels are
