- Rockin’ In The Free World – 9:05 (cover of the Neil Young song)
The Humans were:
Gary Grainger, guitar
Bill Burke, guitar
Nick Graham, bass
Leo Brown, drums
This is a harder rocking band than the Jess Roden band from the mid 1970s that appear on Blowin’ and Live At The BBC and the Humans lack the fuller sound provided by the saxophone, trombone and keyboards.
Roden remains in fine voice and there are no issues with the band who perform well.
Unfortunately this album which is good standing on its own is a poor substitute for those glorious live recordings from the 1970s.

I think the best album of Jess Roden will be his new “Anthology”. It’s a limited edition thats taken three years to produce, coming out of Pledgemusic, I’ve pledged and they keep giving you tasters of the tracks. They are phenominal, just blow me away, and because they are remastered the quality is just amazing. Amazing. And there’s some new stuff I haven’t heard before, really good. wow.
oh and there’s a entire live CD. I was privileged to hear it sitting in a room with a professional sound system. I swear it was like being in a gig.
Thanks for the comment. I’ve been waiting for Hidden Masters, the Jess Roden anthology to be released as well, ever since I first heard about the project a couple of years ago. I’ve also pledged and I was able to download the mp3s for The Substitue Bench, the bonus disc 6 the other day.

He is a fantastic singer and I particularly like the full sound of the Jess Roden Band.
