Original release 1969
Re-issue 2011 O-Music
Very raw blues compared to most of the music that was popular at that time. This album has two dogs on it.."Umbrellas" and Big Boy". ...the rest is solid hard blues.
Their version of St. James Infirmary is one of the best. Other stand out cuts are Beautician Blues, Good Love and Blues So Bad. A true forgotten blues gem.
In spite of the psychedelic title, The Mystic Number National Band were one of Kansas City's contributions to late-1960s blues rock ... Formed in 1967, the band featured the talents of bassist Russ Booth, guitarists Dave Lorenz and Bob Sebbo, and singer/drummer Glenn Walters.
