Vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release from the blues guitar icon. Harvey Mandel played with Canned Heat, John Mayall and the Rolling Stones, and released solo albums on the Phillips and Janus labels in the 70's. Harvey remains one of the most innovative and influential blues-rock guitarists. Snake Pit was recorded at Fantasy Studios with musicians who have played with Ryley Walker and Sun Kil Moon. A pioneer of modern electric blues from Chicago, Mandel AKA The Snake (attributed to his cracked leather jacket and snake-like guitar licks) developed and mastered sustained and controlled feedback, displaying both extroversion and musical virtuosity. The consummate eight track set features the aptly named JackHammer and Ode To B.B. Snake Pit, Space Monkeys, Nightingail, Baby Batter, Jackhammer, Buckaroo, Before Six, Ode to B.B
