Blues Sundays: Lydia Pense & Cold Blood
614 Sutter St, Folsom, CA 95630, USA
Lydia Pense & Cold Blood debuted when the Fillmore was at its peak as one of the nation's musical Meccas. Owner Bill Graham was so impressed with Lydia's voice and the sound of the band that he immediately signed Cold Blood to his new record label. During the span of six original late-60's, early-70's albums, Lydia Pense and Cold Blood helped, along with Tower Of Power, forge their own specific brand of funk/soul and R&B which came to be known as East Bay Grease. That music still holds up today, proving that great music is timeless and will continue to inspire generations to come.
Their initial four albums Cold Blood, Sisyphus, First Taste of Sin and Thriller remain their best known work.The band continues to record and perform today.
