The second studio album from The Groundhogs, now slimmed to the classic three piece line up of Tony TS McPhee on guitar, Pete Cruikshank on bass and Ken Pestelnik on drums. The beginning of their domination as the hardest working band on the circuit, a testament to their creativity as they re-tooled the blues into a neo-psyche groove. Breaking from their traditional influences, the first stepping stone for the power trio who would blossom with Thank Christ For the Bomb, Split and Who Will Save The World?. Inspired by a Yardbirds’ freak out, hearing authentic Indian drumming and the magic that existed between this legendary trio, Blues Obituary is a juggernaut of riffs. The re-issue also includes a mono-friendly single cut of BDD plus its original B-side Gasoline, an aching solo Tony TS McPhee track.
