The Saint Jude album “Diary Of A Soul Fiend” caught my ear back in November and has provided constant listening pleasure ever since, if you like your music with a dash of The Faces and with a voice like Joplin this is for you.

The above book written by Roberto a.k.a Robert Fields has been a major source of inspiration for my Blast from The Pasts for most of this year.

The book is a great read (see previous post HERE) and can still be bought by clicking HERE

The track I have chosen is by The Rumbledown Band of which there is more information in my previous post HERE

Minstrels, Poets & Vagabonds – The Rumbledown Band


The Rumbledown Band were never really a “band” but was really a “jam” of pals of Frankie Miller, primarily Andy Fraser from Free. The two of them worked up some songs together and would record demos.

The track below however also had the late great Paul Kossoff on it and as such was included in the Kossoff album “Blue Soul” which was a 1986 double album retrospective release of Kossoff’s career.

As a bonus Frankie Miller also recorded the track below with the late great Rory Gallagher, the song was featured on the soundtrack to the movie “A Sense Of Freedom” which was the “true” story of Jimmy Boyle’s life on the tough streets of the Gorbals during the 1970’s.
