Melrose Abbey- Small Fat Jim
Melrose Abbey- Small Fat Jim/ Morning Break -R.P.C. 171273 (1973 NL)
Melrose Abbey came from Vlissingen (NL) and were in existence between 1970 and ’75, but didn’t get much further than the odd support slot with Kayak or Focus and recording this single. Small Fat Jim is a driving Rock n’ Roll Boogie work out where the original power trio is augmented by some keyboards. It is all pretty brainless and pleasingly basic. The B side is a slow smooching instrumental of limited interest.
