In case you don't know who The Steampacket are, they were thought to be one of the UK's first Supergroup. The band was made up by Long John Baldry, Rod Stewart, and Julie Driscoll on vocals, and Brian Auger on Organ, Vic Briggs on guitar, Ricky Fenson on bass guitar, and Micky Waller on drums. Long John Baldry was an amazing Blues singer, an inspiration for young rockers like Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones. He also worked with a young Reginald Dwight, who later changed his name to Elton John, adopting his surname from Long John, as the Blues singer helped Elton come to terms with being gay. Here Long John takes the lead on "Lord Remember Me", a great performance.
