A British blues-rock music group of the past due ’60s that, despite being excellent, would normally be relegated to footnote position if it weren’t for the actual fact which the lead guitarist of the trio was the soon-to-be-famous Dave Edmunds. Like many very similar bands of the days, Appreciate Sculpture really was a showpiece for Edmunds’ guitar-playing abilities (which over the initial LP are significant), and small else. The addresses are well-chosen, somewhat revved-up, but mainly reverent variations of blues classics. That they had a fluke strike in 1968 using a cover from the traditional piece “Sabre Dance,” rearranged for electric guitar. After two LPs, Like Sculpture split in 1970. Edmunds continued to solo achievement (“I Hear You Knockin'”) and an extended, sometimes contentious romantic relationship with ex-Brinsley Schwarz bassist Nick Lowe, which culminated in the fantastic music group Rockpile. Still, Like Sculpture, though somewhat dated, is really a hoot to pay attention. And Edmunds, filled with fresh bravado and amazing technique, certainly understands his way along a fret panel.
