Founding members Danny Kalb (guitar/vocals) and Roy Blumenfeld (drums) had brought back the Blues Project name in 1971, with the help of Don Kretmar (bass/sax), who had recently been with Blumenfeld in Seatrain. After the disappointing Lazarus, they got themselves three new members - keyboardist David Cohen (who had been a member of Country Joe & The Fish from 1965 to 1969), guitarist Bill Lussenden, and original lead singer Tommy Flanders (who since originally leaving the Blues Project in 1966 had released one obscure solo album).
With this new six-man line-up (with three founding members), the band recorded a self-titled album which was released in 1972. It was some solid if somewhat uninspiring blues-rock, featuring two Willie Dixon tunes and a cover of Tim Hardin's "Danville Dame". Though it was an improvement on Lazarus, it still did not do too well, and later that same year the band officially disbanded.
