“Blues Helping” Love Sculpture Rare Earth Records (1967) Love Sculpture was a British band that formed in Cardiff in 1966 out of the remnants of another local band called The Human Beans. The band, featuring lead guitarist Dave Edmunds (Right), John Williams on bass, and drummer Bob â€œCongoâ€ Jones disbanded in 1970 after two LPs, this is their first. (Edmunds then went on to success with the number one song “I Hear You Knocking” and “I Knew the Bride (When She Used To Rock and Roll)” and then with Nick Lowe formed the band Rockpile.)
“Blues Helping” is pretty straight forward British blues rock with covers of “Summertime,” “Wang Dang Doodle,” and “Shake Your Hips”
Below is Robert Indiana’s “Love Sculpture” located on the corner of 6th Avenue and 55th Street in Manhattan, NY.
Below is the album cover for “Renegade” by Rage Against The Machine which parodies the “Love” sculpture. (Neither Robert Indiana nor Rage have any other connection with the “Blues Healing” LP that started this ramble. None that I know of that is.)
