Flying the flag for British rock throughout the Seventies and well into the next decade, Climax Blues Band were at the forefront of high quality, entertaining music, performed with equal success ‘live’ and on record. This ten track selection was first released in 1980, a time of change and conflicting influences. But whatever the moods affecting the musicians, they always played with maximum passion and expertise, as is revealed on ‘Flying The Flag’. The opening number ‘Gotta Have More Love’ is closer to disco pop than the blues that first inspired the group, but whatever style they espoused, Climax always delivered songs with cool expertise. And the core feeling for the rockin’ blues can always be found in performances like Peter Haycock’s outstanding ‘So Good After Midnight’ and the aggressive ‘Blackjack And Me’, that are among the highlights of a vibrant high flying album.

2012 three CD collection from Blank & Jones. After the success of the So8os compilation it was about time to bring u another exciting decade… the 90's! The concept of So9os is a bit different from So8os. When they got deeper into it, they saw how diversified the '90s were, with a lot of different musical genres. So they decided to dig deeper and find out which songs still sound fresh after 20 years and really have a great production. They also decided to keep the whole dance music explosion from 1995 onwards aside. Not just keep their own career as musicians and producers aside, but also not to focus on only one musical genre. The first So9os release includes some massive tunes from P.M. Dawn, Saint Etienne, Baby Dee, Stereo MC's and many others.
