Stay with me baby - Terry Reid
Some guys make it in the music business, and some guys don't. And then there are the guys who hang around the edges for a few years embarrassing the guys that make it with their overwhelming talent. Terry Reid was one of those. The albums "Bang Bang, It's Terry Reid," and "Terry Reid," in 1968 and '69 were two of the best albums of all time, period, full-stop, Shuuuuuush! No argument. Bad contracts; bad timing; lack of public relations awareness; lifestyle issues; who knows? For one reason or another, Terry Reid is a footnote in music history. But he's a wonderful footnote.
