In 1970, Tampa-based rockers Blues Image took audiences on the trip of a lifetime with their smash hit single “Ride Captain Ride,” a song that continues to embed itself in pop culture consciousness, showing up as recently as 2004 in the Will Ferrell comedy Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy.
Vocalist/guitarist Mike Pinera founded Blues Image in the late 60s and quickly turned the band into a powerhouse collective with a reputation for stunning musicianship and, of course, exquisite songwriting.
Pinera left the group briefly to front Iron Butterfly, but he’s kept the Blues Image fire burning bright for over five decades. Now, a new collection called Timeless honors the songs of the past as well as brand new material. The 12-song CD drops March 31 courtesy of Purple Pyramid Records.
Timeless showcases both Pinera’s past accomplishments with new renditions of “Ride Captain Ride” and Iron Butterfly’s “In A Gadda Da Vida,” as well as the present on such tunes as “Love Is The Answer” and “Pay My Dues.”
With guest appearances by blues rock legend Pat Travers and Journey’s Jonathan Cain, Timeless is sure to be a hit among fans of Blues Image and classic rock.
