Tommy Flanders is best known as the original lead singer of the Blues Project, appearing on their first single and their 1966 debut album, Live at the Cafe Au-Go-Go. By the time that album came out in March 1966, however, he'd left the band, and only four tracks on the LP featured him on vocals, though some outtakes and alternate versions from the recording sessions surfaced on the Blues Project Anthology compilation. Flanders was then signed to the Blues Project's label, Verve, as a solo artist, and issued three obscure singles on Verve or its parent label, MGM, between 1967 and 1970. In 1969, he also issued an equally obscure solo album, The Moonstone, which in contrast to his early Blues Project work spotlighted his own compositions, which were in a very mellow folk-rock and singer/songwriter style. Flanders later rejoined the Blues Project when the band briefly reunited with altered personnel for the 1972 album Blues Project. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi
