A quite enjoyable album by this Japanese band. Steppin’ Out is very well performed.
Contains many exceptional tracks and the feeling is just right. A definite listening experience.
The groovy and somewhat dire sound of the organ combined with the amazing guitar skills of Alvin Lee won’t leave anyone unsatisfied.
Eric Burdon sure could sing, and each song makes it very clear to the listener. The band also variates the loudness of the tracks with great succession, which time to time creates a hypnotic, almost magical effect.
Skillful playing and the wholeness of the album leads to an uninterrupted flow of blues.
My mind is torn apart between the sweet guitar solos and the overall sound, which is often too pop for my taste. However, the album gradually improves towards the end, and is crowned by the masterpiece Layla.
