‘Stink’, a blues-rock classic

The album Stink by Canadian band McKenna Mendelson Mainline, released in 1969, is a classic. It’s been one of my favourite blues-rock albums since my high school days. The songs are full of energy and some of them are very straightforward* in evry way. On YouTube I’ve tracked them all down and put them one after another below here, in the same order as on the album. Enjoy! 🙂


* Let me add that the word ‘straightforward’ might be interchangeable here with ‘sexist’ or perhaps even ‘male chauvinist’, choose as you like. Also, when I started liking this music, as a 14 year old in 1978, I never could have imagined writing a footnote like this some 35 years later. 🙂
