Mighty Baby

From the blazing psychedelia of their blistering self-titled debut album (November 1969) to the mellow sounds of their swansong, A Jug Of Love (1971), Mighty Baby combined elements of blues, folk, jazz and psychedelia and became one of the best-loved underground bands in British rock history.

Forming from the ashes of London mod supremos The Action, the band became a fixture at open-air festivals. Live, their music stretched out into infinity on set-piece jams like India.

On their day, Mighty Baby was the nearest Britain ever came to The Grateful Dead – with better singing and with the same egoless charm. Of course, on a bad night, they were almost unlistenable.

Bassist Mike Evans passed away in January 2010.
