Peter Thorup With Friends "Wake Up Your Mind" CD
Peter Thorup, a well known Danish Blues-Rock musician, gained international reputation because of his cooperation with Blues-icon Alexis Korner in New Church, CCS and Snape in the early 70s. After he left his first band The Beefeaters in 1969, Thorup was helped by some old friends from famous Danish groups Young Flowers, Burning Red Ivanhoe, The Beefeaters and Rainbow Band to record "Wake Up Your Mind" in February and March 1970. 13 titles were recorded of which 7 found its way on 1970 Philips released album of the same name.
The music was not restricted to just Blues-Rock and consequently this release had a much wider appeal as the rest of Peter Thorups efforts. The album reflects the musicians good reputation and it is rather a band project than a solo effort. Fantastic guitar playing by Peter Thorup and Peer Frost (Young Flowers), gorgeous vocals by P.T. and Ole Fick (Burning Red Ivanhoe), excellent organ work by Morten Kjaerumgard and impressive flute and sax playing by Bent Hesselmann (Maxwells, Rainbow Band/Midnight Sun) define this real killer.
Beside the original album tracks, there are 6 bonustracks featuring among others Hendrix´ "If 6 was 9" in a 8 minutes version and the 11 minutes opus "I dreamed I was a dog last night" by Ole Fick, all in all about 40 minutes bonus material. Comes with comprehensive booklet, band history, photos, digitally remastered.
