BRIAN AUGER & THE TRINITY - BLACK CAT

While the records cut as Brian Auger & The Trinity with (the great) Julie Driscoll on vocals are the most well known from this collective, this particular 45 finds the fellas alone and absolutely SCORCHING.

Auger is an organist of legend, and his rocking Hammond B3 playing drives this track into the stratos-mod-o-phere for an unrelenting 3:18, including an organ solo that's one of the finest ever played on the instrument. It may be a bit corny, but I love the faux-party sounds happening on the intro and the choruses. Put aside any convictions of authenticity and they just add to the fun. And I DARE you to sit still while this jam plays.

from 1968...

It is indeed, a massive track. Try it's big stripey brother "Tiger" where Auger burns the organ even more with the added bonus of an almost dissonant albeit brilliant female backing of "do-do, do-do-doo, do-do-do". Pure whacky!
