The band formed in 1966 with original members Paul Tiller (lead vocals and harmonica), Paul Kossoff (lead guitar), brothers Derek Brooks (rhythm guitar) and Stuart Brooks (bass), and Terry Sims (drums).

Black Cat Bones (named after a Hoodoo charm associated with blues music) played regularly on the London pub circuit. Early in the band's existence came several personnel changes, with Terry Sims being replaced by drummer Frank Perry, who was in turn replaced in early 1968 by drummer Simon Kirke. Paul Tiller was later replaced by vocalist Brian Short.

At the suggestion of Mike Vernon, owner of the Blue Horizon record label, Kossoff, Kirke and Stuart Brooks backed veteran blues pianist Champion Jack Dupree on his 1968 album 'When You Feel The Feeling You Was Feeling', and played on his concurrent UK tour. Both Paul Kossoff and Simon Kirke left soon after to form Free, being replaced by guitarist Rod Price and drummer Phil Lenoir. It was this lineup that recorded Barbed Wire Sandwich, the band's only album release. The album was recorded at Tangerine and Decca Studios, and was released in November 1969 on Decca's newly launched Nova label dedicated to progressive rock music. When the album failed to win the band critical acclaim, members Brian Short, Rod Price, and Phil Lenoir left the band, effectively ending its existence.


This album can only be graded as FAIR, but with near mint examples selling for ten times this price, it is a very affordable collection filler that will certainly not depreciate over time.

The vinyl shows several surface marks, ranging from the light scuff & hairline to a few deeper scratches. This results in a degree of surface noise being present at all times in quieter moments & the occasional 'click' being heard.
Visually, the vinyl look to be VG/VG- and plays mostly as you would expect a VG copy to play, with the exception of one long axial scratch that causes a repeating jump at the beginning of Side Two, Track Three, 'Sylvester's Blues'.
As a consequence, we can only grade the vinyl as FAIR, partially redeemed by the VG/VG- condition of the rest of the vinyl.

The sleeve remains in GOOD condition.
There is a previous owner's name written on the back & a bit of discolouration, but nothing excessive.
The sleeve has been tape reinforced at the opening [a common practice at the time], which has actually saved it from any further deterioration.
Visually, the front displays just a degree of light wear, although there is a considerable amount of creasing to the laminate.
For all this, the sleeve remains intact & untorn. Even with a small split to the laminate at the centre of the spine, it remains clearly readable and shows just a little scuffing to the corners. Not too bad, really, considering how copies of this album are usually found.

This is a far from Mint example & is priced accordingly, but is still playable with the exception of Side Two, Track Three, previously mentioned.
The sleeve too is in slightly better than average condition for a copy of this album, which is why Mint examples are now selling for 500+.

If you have been looking for a collection filler and have been unwilling to sell your child to obtain one, then this could be for you.
