BLACK CAT BONES were a blues-prog rock group from London founded in the late '60s by Paul Kossoff and Simon Kirke (drums) both who would leave after recording this album and form the band “Free”. BLACK CAT BONES also had the talents of Rod Price (lead guitar) who also would later go on to play in Foghat. “Barbed Wire Sandwich” was released originally on Decca’s progressive label NOVA and represents a wonderfully blues driven progressive rock album. Considering there are 3 guitarists on the album this recording is bubbling over with 6 stringed contributions. Vocals are strong with Rod Price’s convincing deep accents and warm guttural soul. The album is actually very reminiscent of CREAM's "Disraeli Gears" with driving guitar bass and drum interplay and that certain rawness. Overall album is superbly crafted with some great songs and instrumentation. This band is the pre-Leaf Hound. A blues-rock band with progressive elements. In the first line-up was Paul Kossoff and Simon Kirke before they made Free, but they don’t play on the album. Great solos from Rod Price (later Savoy Brown), but the vocalist is fantastic too (Brian Short). The second title is a great slow blues, and there’s two ballads: "Feelin’ Good", "Four Women", but maybe the best song is the last Good Lookin’ Woman. Unfortunately they split after this album. The Brooks brothers found Leaf Hound with the vocalist of Brunning Sunflower Blues Band, Peter French (later Atomic Rooster).
