Lord Sutch and his Heavy Friends
Hanko said:  
if you can score a copy of the Lord Sutch Album (Heavy Friends) recorded in early 1969, you can hear that little supro in all its glory cool, bitchin tremolo also.  
    The 6 tracks that JP recorded for that album with John Bonham on drums have been reissued as bonus tracks on the deluxe edition of "No Introduction Necessary" Cleopatra CLP 1236-2 (highly recommended!)  
    "No Introduction Necessary" was a rather interesting album by Keith de Groot from 1968 in which the backing bands were much better than the solo artist. Half of the tracks were recorded with Big Jim Sullivan and Albert Lee on guitars and when they weren't available to complete the album Jimmy Page was brought in. (John Paul Jones played bass and Nicky Hopkins played piano on all of the tracks.) Most of the material was Sun rockabilly but the two different backing bands were really hot and you can see how the styles of both Jimmy Page and Albert Lee were developing.  
    I've raved about JP's playing on the Lord Sutch album before— it was kinda like if Jimmy Page was playing in a no-name garage band, with all of his chops intact... :D
