Japan (1969 – 1977)

Blues Creation was the brainchild of guitarist/singer Kazuo Takeda. They were known as Blues Creation from 1969–1972 and after a three year hiatus returned as just Creation in 1975, not to be confused with the mid 1960’s British blues pop band known as The Creation.

In 1969, Blues Creation made a self-titled album of American blues covers, featuring songs written by Sonny Boy Williamson, Memphis Slim, Chester Burnett, J. Mayall-Eric Clapton, Blind Willie Johnson, Willie Dixon and Otis Rush. In August 1971 they released their original debut “Demon & Eleven Children”, and also released Carmen Maki & Blues Creation, which had the band fronted by female vocalist Carmen Maki. Each Blues Creation album other than their debut features songs written by Takeda and consists of a constantly shifting lineup. In late 1971, Blues Creation released their final album, Blues Creation Live.

Next was the 1975 self-titled Creation, featuring a new stable lineup and a cover photo of a dozen nude boys full-frontal peeing. Creation toured Japan with American hard rock band Mountain. Mountain broke up soon after their Japanese tour, and partly due to hearing loss from playing so loud, bassist Felix Pappalardi focused on producing other bands.

Pappalardi decided to help Creation work on their next album and invited the band to his Nantucket, Massachusetts home for two months of rehearsals.
