Proof - 5th Anniversary Phonograph Record (1966-71)

Full title - 5th Anniversary Phonograph Record.
A great blues-rock band that, despite a few brushes with fame,
never quite got the attention they deserved.
Perhaps their underexposure was due to the fact that the band's home base of Alaska
was a bit too far off the map for rock critics & record execs of the time.
Had they moved a little further south down the coast,
who knows what would have happened! Led by the talented singer & harmonica player Gary Sloan
(master of the 12 beats & blues collector extraordinaire),
Proof spent the late sixties & early seventies on the fringes of the blues-rock scene,
managing to secure the opening slot at a few Alaskan Jefferson Airplane concerts.
Their second album, as its title suggests,
celebrates the band's 5th year together (1971) & features material that spans the period,
including blues classics 'Hootchie Cootchie Man',
'Leavin' Trunk' & 'Walkin' Blues', & speak volumes on the band's considerable talent.
It is also one of the most rare American blues-rock records
(original copies of their second album are practically nonexistent). Miniature gatefold LP sleeve.

Excellent 2nd album from this1971 Alaskan blues-rock band led by Gary Sloan that celebrated the bands 5th year
together. Great acid blues rock with ripping lead guitar.
Sloan has since worked with Muddy Waters, John Mayall, Jorma Kaukonen, Billy Preston, etc.
