A Canadian institution of almost fifty years standing, their first single was released back in 1973, “Flip Flop and Fly”. Downchild – still referred to in some quarters as Downchild Blues Band, though they dropped that in the 80s – still make fine music. A lot has changed in music – and the blues – over that time. Although the down-home (musically and lyrically), harmonica-driven “Mississippi Woman, Mississauga Man” or the powerhouse title track could have been cut at any time in the last sixty-plus years, others display some of the changes in taste that have occurred. The opener, “Albany” is an infectious, horn laden jumping blues track and “Take A Piece Of My Heart” is a pleading piano-based soul number – this would have been considered commercial music when the band first started.
