Blue Jug - Blue Jug (1975)



Blue Jug released their self-titled debut in 1975 on the Capricorn label. Plenty of southern flavor here, but also very reminiscent of The Band. They released one other album. Also entitled 'Blue Jug', it does however feature all different songs.
I was always very curious about this album. So, I was very pleased when I got my hands on this rip. And though it's a fair record, it does not stand besides my favorites. It's the singer and the production which I'm not particular fond of. But if you like The Band or, like me, you want to hear all 70's southern rock: by all means,
go check it out!

I was just chasing anything Southern related. And since they made one album for Capricorn, that was easy. I love their albums too. Say hi to your uncle ;-)

Do you plan to fix the megaupload links? I love your blog!

Neither of the Blue Jug Band's links work anymore. Would you please re-upload or fix them? Thanks! Love your blog!

Ed Raetzloff (the singer who you're "not particular fond of") did two other albums later: It Took a Long Time to Get to You (1980) and Drivin' Wheels (1981). The first one is especially raw sounding and good (but too short).

Thanks for the info. I have grown somewhat milder in my judgement. Do you have those two albums? Would love to share them here.
