PENGUIN EGGS MAGAZINE: MUSIC REVIEW/ Spring/06 - 'Back in the days when a certain Jagger gentleman was honing his chops on old Muddy Waters records, Elton John was still known as Reg Dwight and Rod Stewart was drunkenly singing in the London underground, young John Baldry was looked up to by that famous generation of young English blues singers. Baldry, who died this year, never attained the pop stardom of his acolytes, but they still feel the influence of Long John. Holger Petersen has done a big favour both for older fans like myself - and a new generation of bluesers by re-releasing these two discs on Stony Plain Records. It Ainít Easy is one of those recordings thatís hard to get tired of because it has so much depth. Long Johnís signature tune, 'Don't Try to Lay no Boogie Woogie on the King of Rock & Roll' is just the start. Produced by Elton John and Rod Stewart, Baldry growls through classic blues of Leadbelly and Willie Dixon, and then bluesifies songs by the likes of Randy Newman. Everything Stops for Tea has more of the same, with Stewart and Elton all over the album. It's not surprising that the overall sound on these records is similar to Stewartís breakthrough album, Every Picture Tells a Story. Baldry used most of the same musicians, including the bottleneck of Sam Mitchell, and Stewart used the sessions as a rehearsal for his own album. Listening to these albums again makes me proud that Baldry called Canada home for the last 20 years of his life.  - by Mike Sadava - Penguin Eggs Magazine
