A Touch of The Blues is a 1989 live album by Blues singer Long John Baldry with extra studio tracks.

Album Info[edit]

This album was a re-issue of the 1987 live album Long John Baldry & Friends with the addition of three newly recorded studio tracks. This album has sunk into partial obscurity even though it has been released on vinyl (1989) and CD (1990). For reasons unknown, the small spoken intro to "Rake and Ramblin' Boy" was cut down for this version.
