Originally released in 1975 on Toadstool, Fingertips became U.K. bluesman Duster Bennett's last album. The harpist, vocalist, and guitarist died tragically in an automobile accident the following year. More soul than hardcore blues, much of this material sounds like a combination of the Meters, the Average White Band, and Billy Preston's Outa-Space. The original nine tracks include Stevie Wonder's Fingertips (Bennett's harp playing here is equal parts Wonder and the laid-back approach of Toots Thielemans), Risk It for a Biscuit, and Take Care (But Don't Take It Easy) with Peter Frampton on guitar. The six bonus tracks, recorded at the same sessions, make this reissue especially appealing to completists. For the most part, these tracks are steeped in traditional blues and gritty soul, with the exception of the disc's closing track, Everyday, a beautiful string-laden ballad which sounds like a Harry Nilsson outtake. [The 2007 Castle Music reissue features bonus tracks.]
