Mix Up The Oils is the twelfth album by Australian blues band Chain, originally released in July 1999 via Forever Records and Tamborine Music.

Formed from the remnants of Perth band The Beaten Tracks in 1968, Chain were named after the classic soul track "Chain of Fools" by the band's early vocalist Wendy Saddington. The band's debut album, the classic Live Chain, recorded at Caesar's Palace discotheque, was released in June 1970, and shortly after the band signed a deal with Infinity Records. Chain's first single, "Black and Blue", reached number ten on the Australian charts in May 1971, followed by the album Toward the Blues, which peaked at number six in 1971 and placed Chain alongside other Australian acts like Billy Thorpe and the AztecsCarson, and The Adderley Smith Blues Band, at the forefront of the Australian blues movement.

 

Recorded in late 1998, after touring intermittently since 1992, Mix Up The Oils features Matt Taylor (Vocals/Harmonica), Phil Manning (Lead Guitar), Barry "Little GooseHarvey (Drums), and for the first time, Dirk Du Bois (Bass).

Showing off Matt Taylor's song writing ability coupled with his unique and charismatic voice, Mix Up The Oils features plenty of rock and blues styles throughout, coupled with slow blues and jazz riffs reminiscent of Santana or Steely Dan, while the deep grooves and solid riffs of the slower blues tracks brings Skyhooks to mind.

Check out the tracks "Mix Up The Oils", "The River", and "Shining".

This CD is in a jewel case and was pressed in Australia via Forever Records and Tamborine Music.
