KEEF HARTLEY came to prominence as a member of the British R&B group The Artwoods before joining JOHN MAYALLs BLUESBREAKERS in 1967. He contributed to the album "Crusade" before leaving in 1968 to form the first line-up of his own band. He recorded a series of classic albums for Deccas DERAM label and in 1971 he formed the most ambitious line-up of the band for a series of concerts at the MARQUEE club, featuring an 8-piece horn section (featuring such luminaries as Barbara Thompson, Chris Mercer and Lyn Dobson) and guest percussionist Pete York. The event was recorded and released later that year as LITTLE BIG BAND. This reissue continues ESOTERICs reissue series of KEEF HARTLEY BAND albums and includes liner notes by the man himself and a booklet with previously unseen photos.
