Julie Driscoll – Brian Auger & The Trinity

From Yardbirds' fan-club secretary to "the face of '68"...

Trending Now

Driscoll fronted Brian Auger’s Trinity on these two albums, which are still undiminished in spirit and style. The instrumentals pack a real punch, led by Auger’s Hammond, although his occasional vocals are weak. But Joolz is the star, moving effortlessly from blues and soul to gospel and freeform jazz pyrotechnics that recall Tim Buckley’s Starsailor. Streetnoise is still truly adventurous in scope, while Open adds three non-album singles, including the atmospheric “This Wheel’s On Fire”and its unsuccessful follow-up, David Ackles'”Road To Cairo”.
