INSPIRADA EM BANDAS DE BLUES ROCK BRITÂNICAS COMO "CREAM" E "DEEP PURPLE", O REPERTÓRIO INICIAL DOS CARAS ERA COMPOSTO POR BLUES ROCK E POP ROCK E MATERIAL ORIGINAL!! ESSE PRIMEIRO ALBUM INCLUI DUAS CANÇÕES EM INGLÊS E SEUS DOIS PRIMEIROS CLÁSSICOS "FAUT QUE ME J'ME POUSSE" E "CÂLINE DE BLUES" QUE VIRIAM A DEFINIR O SOM DA BANDA NA SEQUENCIA!! UM BOM E RARO ALBUM!! EXCLUSIVIDADE DO BLOG VENENOS DO ROCK!!
 
a monster progressive rock and blues-psych that defined the band's sound in the 70's.    This is the first of Offenbach's early "prog-blues-psych-era" recordings (along with "Tabarnac", "Saint-Chrone de Neant" and "Bulldozer").... Inspired by British blues-rock bands such as Cream and Deep Purple, Offenbach’s repertoire initially comprised pop songs of the day, as well as blues-rock and original material. Its first LP, Offenbach Soap Opera (1972) included two songs in English, as well as the early classics “Faut que j'me pousse” and “Câline de blues,” which would come to define the band’s sound. Its second album, Saint-Chrone de néant (1973), was recorded live on 30 November 1972 during the Mass for the Dead at Montréal‘s Saint Joseph's Oratory.
 
With original members Jean (Johnny) Gravel (guitars),  Gerry Boulet (piano, organ,vocals), Michel (Willie) Lamothe Jr (bass), Roger (Wezo) Belval (drums) and Pierre Harel (percussion, vocals).

JPT SCARE BAND - Acid Acetate Excursion [1974 US Hard Acid Blues Rare Session]


BANDA AMERICANA FORMADA EM 1970 EM KANSAS CITY POR TRÊS AMIGOS: O VOCALISTA E GUITARRISTA TERRY SWOPE, O BAIXISTA PAUL GRIGSBY E O BATERISTA JEFF LITTRELL!! OS CARAS ADORAVAM JAM POR HORAS E HORAS INSPIRADOS PELO HARD ROCK PSICODÉLICO DO CREAM, BLUE CHEER E JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE!! FOI ASSIM QUE GRAVARAM SUAS PRIMEIRAS CANÇÕES NO PORÃO DA CASA DE UM DELES, CUJO MATERIAL DEPOIS FOI COMPILADO ATRAVÉS DAS MASTER TAPES!!
 
AQUI VOCÊS ESCUTAM ISSO NUMA JAM QUE MOSTRA SEU HARD ROCK BLUES EMBEBIDO EM ACIDO E PSICODELIA!! A PRIMEIRA FAIXA DO ALBUM JÁ DIZ A QUE VEIO A BANDA, FAZENDO O QUE REALMENTE QUERIAM NUMA JAM DE 15 MINUTOS DE DURAÇÃO COM UM INÍCIO BLUESY QUE DEPOIS DESCAMBA NUMA SÉRIE DE SOLOS DE GUITARRAS LEGAIS!! PARA MIM É A MELHOR MÚSICA DO LP!! APESAR DE GRAVADO EM 1973 SOMENTE 20 ANOS DEPOIS O ALBUM FOI LANÇADO PELA MONSTER RECORDS!! VENENO RARO E RECOMENDADO!!!
 
Having been formed in the early 1970s, Kansas Citys JPT Scare Band are still going strong today and this double album reissue of their seminal first 2 albums  (recorded in the early 70s and out of print since the early 90s);  show just how they started with their acid soaked psychedelic brand of rock.
The origin of these songs is shrouded in mystery. Stories abound of the band playing extended sessions in front of an audience of like-minded people only for the results to go missing for decades. Other tales place the band in a basement for a few days, emerging with recordings that frankly scared their contemporaries so much that they didn’t see the light of day until the last decade of the 20th century.
 
The first four songs on this release were originally released in the early 1990s as Acid Acetate Excursions (almost 20 years after it was originally recorded), while the latter clutch of tunes were put out as Rape of the Titan’s Sirens. Parts of both albums have seen the light of day as compilations, but this is the first time that both have been presented as discrete albums on vinyl.

NEXT - Dusty Shoes (1971 Rare Canadian Hard Rock)


HIGHT RARITY!!
ALTÍSSIMA RARIDADE!!

NEXT ERA UMA BANDA CANADENSE  QUE GRAVOU SEU UNICO ALBUM EM 1971!!
Depois de alguns singles de sucesso no Canadá, garantiram um contrato com a Warner Brothers e, no final de 1971, sai o album "Dusty Shoes" que foi lançado com uma divulgação bem limitada e a distribuição muito pobre!! Com isso o álbum não fez sucesso e a banda acabou em 1973!! A sonoridade é um Hard Rock setentista com organ pesado e violões bem legal com algumas lembranças de Grand Funk Raillroad!! Os membros da banda NEXT mais tarde se bandearam pra outras bandas como The Guess Who, Arlequim e The Litter!! VENENO CANADENSE ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!! VENENASSO!!
 
Winnipeg's Next were an offshoot of regional heroes The Fifth. After a fairly successful run of singles in Canada, The Fifth split in 1970 with several members of the band defecting to other acts in the region. One such product of the split was Next. The band were quickly able to secure a contract with Warner Brothers and by late 1971, "Dusty Shoes" was released. With somewhat limited exposure and very poor distribution, the album sank without a trace and Next were history by the end of 1973. Members would later turn up in The Guess Who, Harlequin and The Litter.
 
"Dusty Shoes" is very much typical of the era from which it sprang. Overall, it's tastefully arranged organ/guitar driven pseudo hard rock that recalls Grand Funk Railroad quite a bit in places. With the soulfully gritty vocals of George Belanger, everything here has an edge which makes much of the material here sound harder than it actually is. That subtle dynamic is what carries most of this album and makes it a truly satisfying listen. Check out this obscure offering from Next, contributed by Orchman. Dig it...

AUNT MARY - Aunt Mary [1970 Norway Hard Prog Rock)


VENENASSO MUITO LEGAL E QUE ESTOU POSTANDO PARA REPARAR UM ERRO HISTÓRICO DO BLOG AO NÃO TER AINDA POSTADO ESSE VENENO!! VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!!
 
Uma das primeiras (e considerada por muitos "a melhor") banda de rock progressivo da Noruega. Sua música é uma mistura de um pesado hard-rock combinado com claras influências de prog-sinfônico, que não apareceu até o seu terceiro e último álbum de estúdio "Janus" lançado em 1973. Esse primeiro album da banda mostra a essência crua dos músicos em seus improvisos. A banda assinou um contrato com a Polydor na "Dinamarca" para se lançar no mercado em 1970 e moveu-se gradualmente para o rock progressivo depois do segundo álbum. O grupo foi extinto em 1973, mas se reuniu para vários concertos após 1978 e sua última apresentação foi em 2006.
 
O álbum auto intitulado Aunt Mary(Polydor/1970)pode ser considerado como um dos primeiros (e possivelmente o melhor produto do rock progressivo da Noruega). Onze faixas apresentam uma mescla interessante de psicodelia,blues e jazz com algumas tendências progressivas,cada faixa tem melodias memoráveis,com curtos mas doces solos para os ouvídos. Os teclados trabalham bem legal e essa formula de rock progressivo oreintado por teclados mais tarde seria usado também por alguns dos melhores grupos noruegueses.
-----------------------
I'M POSTING TO REPAIR AN ERROR HISTORY BLOG TO STILL HAVE POSTED THIS WONDERFUL ALBUM!! POST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
 
One of the early and by many considered to be one of Norways definitely best prog bands. Their music is a mix of heavy hard-rocking tunes, combined with clear influences from the symphonic genre. The more symphonic sound however didn't appeared until their third, and last studio album, "Janus". A great concept-album to start with. If you want the more thundering sounds coming from AUNT MARY, look for 1972s "Loaded". High-skilled musicians combined with good, creative melodies makes AUNT MARY a important Norwegian band to become acquainted with.
 
Norwegian Prog Rock band from the seventies. Signed a contract with Polydor in Denmark to release ‘Aunt Mary’ in 1970. Gradually moved towards Progressive Rock with the records ‘Loaded’ in 1972 og ‘Janus’ in ‘73.
 
Self-titled" album from the norvegian band Aunt Mary may be considered as one of the first (and, possibly, the best) progressive rock product from this country. Eleven tracks present an interesting mixture of psychedelic, blues and jazz with some prog tendencies.

Good lord what were they smoking in Australia in 1971, the best year for music ....ever? I thought "Obsecretion" was terrific but this album is fantastic. Some of the best psych hard rock guitar you will ever hear. I'm not kidding if you have never heard this and you like psych hard rock guitar, you owe it to yourself to listen to this.
Fantastic record! Wailin' guitar driven psych hard rock, with a couple of lighter tracks added to the mix, but overall highly consistently extraordinary.

STEEL RIVER - Weighin' Heavy (1970 Canadian Hard Rock)


APÓS 4 ANOS DE SHOWS AMADORES NOS ARREDORES DE TORONTO, STEEL RIVER COMEÇOU A TOCAR PROFISSIONALMENTE EM 1969 ASSINANDO COM A GRAVADORA "TUESDAY RECORDS" E JÁ NO ANO SEGUINTE GRAVOU ESSE SEU ALBUM DE ESTRÉIA!! GRAVOU MAIS UM ALBUM EM 1971!! A SONORIDADE É HARD ROCK COM ALGUMAS PITADAS PSYCH COM DESTAQUE PARA O ÓTIMO ORGAN HAMMOND QUE PASSEIA LEGAL!! NÃO É UM HARD PESADÃO E SIM COM UMA ORIENTAÇÃO MAIS COMERCIAL, MAS ISSO NÃO TIRA NEM UM POUCO A QUALIDADE SONORA DA BANDA, POIS AS MELHORES FAIXAS SÃO DE QUALIDADE!! É UM BOM VENENO QUE MERECE UMA AUDIÇÃO!!
 
After four years of amateur gigs and high-school dates around Toronto, Steel River began playing professionally in 1969 and signed with Tuesday Records the following year. From their 1970 debut album Weighin' Heavy, "Ten Pound Note" became a hit in Canada. Steel River broke up three years after 1971's A Better Road, but re-formed in 1980 to record the single "Armoured Car.
Straight ahead Canadian Rock album, with some Hard Rock and Psych moves and organ work, nothing special but still far better than their second album. Somewhat inconsistent, but the better tracks are surprisingly good.

OS CARAS FAZIAM UM TRABALHO COMPETENTE DE ORGAN E GUITARRAS E ALGUMAS IMPROVISAÇÕES QUE SÃO CARACTERÍSTICOS DA BANDA, COMO É O CASO DA ULTIMA FAIXA "HOLY LAND" UMA OBRA QUE LEMBRA MUITO "WHEN THE MUSIC IS OVER" DA BANDA THE DOORS!!

This very obscure & classic album created by the San Francisco psychedelic band Day Blindness in 1969 features driving guitars & crunching organ. Long jams sum up their music, which shows influences of both Iron Butterfly & The Doors.

FUSION ORCHESTRA - Skeleton In Armour (1973 UK Progressive Rock)


BOM DISCO COM COMPOSIÇÕES SOFISTICADAS, VOCAIS FEMININOS FORTES, BOM SOLOS DE GUITARRA, PERCUSÃO PODEROSA, PIANO ELÉTRICO, HAMMOND, FLAUTA E GAITA DÃO O TOM DA SONORIDADE DOS CARAS!! É PROGRESSIVO COM TOQUES DO JAZZ, LONGAS SUÍTES E VARIAÇÕES MUSICAIS!! É FUSION COMO O PRÓPRIO NOME SUGERE!!
 
Tapestry of Delights:
A short-lived progressive/hard-rock outfit. The album is now quite sought-after. Except When My Momma's Not At Home, which is essentially a mainstream rock 'n' rollin' piece with a brass arrangement, the remaining tracks, Sonata In Z, Have I Left The Gas On?, A Skeleton In Armour and Talk To The Man In The Sky are superb, especially the first two. Sophisticated compositions with astonishing and strong female vocals, superb manic guitar leads, powerful drumming, electric piano, flute and harmonica solos make this recommended listening. (CA).

Request: FEVER TREE - Fever Tree & Another Time, Another Place (1968-69 US West Coast Psych Garage Rock)


BOA BANDA AMERICANA QUE FAZIA UM SOM TÍPICO DAS BANDAS PSICODÉLICAS DE SAN FRANCISCO COM ALGUMAS EXPERIMENTAÇÕES E BOAS GUITARRAS DISTORCIDAS!! AQUI TEMOS OS DOIS PRIMEIROS ALBUNS DOS CARAS NUM DISCO SÓ!! VENENO RECOMENDADO!!
 
Fever Tree (1968) - Their debut album was a strong psychedelic affair, and included their legendary San Francisco girls along with a smorgasbord of similar gems.  Starting with Bach's Toccata in fugue and minor, this album is a feast of psychedelic experimentation, with strong songs, and strangely seductive distorted guitars. 

Another time, another place (1968) - Continuing in the same vein as the first album, this is a similar sounding record, although the musicianship had gotten better.  For me the best moment is the almost Iron Butterfly-ish reworking of "Man who paints the pictures".  A very strong follow up, it's a mistery why this album didn't chart higher than it did (no. 83).
 
Although mostly known for their 1968 anthem of psychedelia "San Francisco girls (return of the native)", Fever Tree recorded some of the most interesting psychedelic rock albums of the late 60's.  Formed in Houston, Texas from the ashes of the band Bostwick Vine by Dennis Keller (vocals), Rob Landes (keyboards, flute and more), E.E.Wolfe lll (bass), Michael Knust (guitar) and John Tuttle (drums.  After releasing two unremarkable singles in 1967 that both flopped, they enlisted producers/songwriters Scott and Vivian Holtzman.  With them they recorded their legendary debut album, which included the near-hit (no.91) single San Francisco girls.  Their unique brand of psychedelic rock filled with classical experiments was recieved well, and two similar albums followed in 1968 and 1970.  Major sucess still eluding them, most of the bandmembers threw in the towel.  In 1970  they recorded a fourth and last album, For sale.  Largely played by session men (inc. Kevin Kelley ex-Byrds) the abum was a disappointing and predictable mainstream pop album, and a commercial disaster.  The band officially called it quits after that, later to be reformed for a short while by Michael Knust backed by a brand new line-up. 

Their first three albums are still considered by many sixties fanatics some of the best and most overloked of that genre, managing to combine the psychedelic sound of the San Francisco bands like Jefferson Airplane with symphonic experiments and hard rockin guitars .
 
History
The band hailed from Houston, Texas and started in 1966 as folk rock outfit, The Bostwick Vines. They changed their name to Fever Tree a year later after the addition of keyboard player Rob Landes.
Their fifteen minutes of fame arrived when their song "San Francisco Girls (Return of the Native)" reached #91 in the U.S. charts, sometime in late 1968. Like most of the band's material, it was written by the couple of Scott and Vivian Holtzman, who also were their producers. This four-minute track captured all the band's trademarks: Dennis Keller's incantation-like vocals, the quick shifting between slow parts with an almost sacral feeling and faster, more rock-oriented parts, and especially the searing guitar work by Michael Knust.
 
Fever Tree also released their self-titled debut album, Fever Tree, in 1968, which charted at #156. A second album, Another Time, Another Place, followed in 1969. Apart from "San Francisco Girls", they never had another hit, although they later also tried writing songs themselves when they had dropped the Holtzmans as producers. The group disbanded in 1970, but reformed in 1978 with only guitarist Michael Knust remaining from the original line-up. The new formation of the group had little commercial success; Fever Tree was not heard of again until 2003 when Michael Knust passed away.

GREAT JONES - All Bowed Down (US 1970 Hard Blues Funk Rock)


BOA BANDA AMERICANA QUE FAZIA UM SOM QUE LEMBRA UM POUCO "FRIJID PINK" E QUE GRAVOU APENAS ESSE ALBUM!! A COMBINAÇÃO SONORA É UM POUCO ESTRANHA E NÃO PODERIA SER DIFERENTE, POIS REUNE UM GUITARRISTA QUE ERA AMANTE DO JAZZ, UM BATERISTA QUE ADOARAVA BLUES E UM BAIXISTA E VOCALISTA COM AFINIDADE NO FOLK ROCK!! O RESULTADO FINAL DISSO TUDO É UM ALBUM DE HARD, FUNK, BLUES E OUTROS ESTILOS ENRUSTIDOS!! A FAIXA "UNITED STATE OF MIND" E "IDAHO POTATOES", PRA MIM, SÃO OS GRANDES DESTAQUES DO DISCO!! VENENO RARÍSSIMO E RECOMENDADO!!
 
Soulful Hard Blues Rock something reminds me of the band Frijid Pink  "United State Of Mind" and "Idaho Potatoes" are the highlight of the album!! With only one highly collectible 1970 album to their credit, Great Jones, as the liner notes to their LP declared, was an odd combination. This hard driving rock and blues trio featured Billy Cadieux, a fiery jazz-loving guitar player, ex-folky bassist and gutsy lead vocalist, David Tolmie and blues-breaking drummer, Gary Kollarus. This Brooklyn based band became part of the scene revolving around legendary R&B producer, Jerry Ragavoy's Hit Factory Studios in New York City, which is where they met up with keyboardist and songwriter, Jeff Gutcheon. Then an apprentice at the Hit Factory, Gutcheon had worked extensively with Geoff and Maria Muldaur and not only contributed piano and organ tracks to Great Jones' album sessions, but also penned the title song, "All
Bowed Down."
 
"The sleevenotes to this album tell us: 'Great Jones is an odd combination; a jazz-loving guitarist; a blues-freaking drummer; and an ex-folk singing bassist.' Well, the end result is a funk/blues album with at least three decent tracks. The first is opener Cripple Creek, with its bouncy bass notes and sharply accentuating drum beats. Superimposed on this are Cadieux's catchy acoustic guitar riffs. The second is the title cut, a funky piano-driven number. Also of note is I Ain't Got Long, on which Cadieux contributes some delicate blues guitar which blends well with Tolmie's gutsy vocals. An average album, overall, though."

[Repost] ORANGE WEDGE - No One Left But Me (1974 US Hard Rock Prog Bluesy)

ESSE SEGUNDO ALBUM DE 1974 TEM UMA PROPOSTA BEM MAIS HARD QUE O PRIMEIRO DISCO QUE VEM LOGO ACIMA NA PRÓXIMA POSTAGEM!! A FAIXA THE GATE EM SEUS MAIS DE 10 MINUTOS TEM PASSAGENS HARD E VIAJANTES NUMA VERDADEIRA MESCLA ENTRE O HARD E O PROGRESSIVO!! VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!!
 
Rare north-american band. Only 2 albuns with few copies maked. The first album, from 1972, came the 60's sonority to 70's, a little bit more agressive sound and refined instrumental work. The second album, from 1974, it's more hard-rocking oriented, good guitars riffs and dark moments. Highly recomended.
 
Orange Wedge was established around 1968 in Baltimore, Maryland. The group evolved from Greg & the Originals. Members were Greg Coulson (lead vocals), Fred Zang (rhythm guitar, vocals), and Don Cowger (bass). In 1968 they added Craig Krixer (lead guitar), Dave Burgess (keyboards) and Tom Rizzo (drums). Krixer came up with the name Orange Wedge. The rock band began playing many teen centers, and school dances. After a brief illness and hospital stay in early 1969 Coulson rejoined the band. They began playing on regular basis quickly becoming one of the top hard rock bands in Baltimore. Orange Wedge could be seen at all the local clubs in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and West Virginia. Zang and Krixer left the group in 1969 and joined Black Foot Smoke. Zang played guitar and / or bass for a lot of other groups. He is still active in the music business. The group that created the records existed between 1971 and 1975.
 
When the group decided to do there own music, guitarist Joe Farace (ex-Fabulous Monarchs, Cabbage) brought his basic ideas to the group. Coulson was responsible for the lyrics. The entire band created the arrangements. The first record entitled "Wedge" was recorded and mixed in Baltimore at Flite Three Studios in 1972. Five hundred copies were made which were distributed a few local stores, and several labels for a possible deal. The remaining records were sold out at shows when the group performed.
 
In 1973 Burgess left the band becoming a member of Patch. Their second album was released in 1974 titled "No One Left But Me" and was recorded at Sheffield Studios with special guests Mark O'Connor, and Jay Graboski of Oho. This time a thousand copies were pressed and distributed in the same way. The group performed the songs live at their shows. They were also heard on the local rock radio station. The group was never offered a contract for either release.
 
In 1975 Joe Farace left the band. Coulson and Rizzo continued the group which finally called it a day in late 1978. Both Orange Wedge LPs have been reissued in the 00's in the States and also have been reissued as a 2 LP German import on "Little Wing".

BEAST - Beast (US 1970 Prog Psych Jazz Rock)


SEGUNDO ALBUM DA BANDA FORMADA EM DENVER, COLORADO, E BEM MAIS MADURO QUE O PRIMEIRO COM UM ESTILO PROGRESSIVO, PITADAS DO JAZZ E DO FOLK, MAS CHEIO DE SURPRESAS NA AUDIÇÃO ONDE OS CARAS PASSEIAM POR VÁRIOS ESTILOS MUSICAIS, TUDO COM FLAUTA E ORGAN HAMMOND BEM LEGAIS!! VENENO RARO E BOM!!
 
Beast cover a variety of styles!! One minute you get acoustic/dreamy folk/psych, the next it's heavy and electric, followed by jazz excursions (50's style, Dixie, & ragtime!) and country. This Beast is full of surprises. For example, the 2nd cut on side 1 titled "Communication" (my personal favourite) is a fairly lengthy full-blown psych/hard rocker, while taking a few jazz turns as well..employing flute and keyboards, which make for some very cool instrumental passages.

MAGI - Win Or Lose [1976 US Hard Rock]


BOA BANDA AMERICANA QUE ATRAÍA MULTIDÕES COM SEUS SHOWS AO VIVO!! POR VEZES COMPARADOS A LED ZEPPELIN, APESAR DE EU PARTICULARMENTE ACHAR UMA COMPARAÇÃO EXAGERADA, O SOM DOS CARAS ERA HARD CRU COM ALGUMAS PITADAS PSICODÉLICAS, ALTA ENERGIA E UM ÓTIMO TRABALHO DE GUITARRAS FUZZY!! VENENO BOM E RECOMENDADO!!

This north Indiana outfit ruled the roost in the 'Michiana' region in the mid-'70s, attracting huge crowds whenever they played live. Often compared with Led Zeppelin, this 5-piece outfit rocked the area with a tight and raw sound that combined in-your-face hard rock with undisguised psychedelic tendencies and lashings of fuzz. It must be said the boys didn't do themselves any favours by issuing their only known album with a cover reminiscent of a Journey photo shoot, but regardless of their dubious hair and sense of dress, Magi certainly deserved more than the obscurity into which they ultimately lapsed. Win Or Lose, recorded at Uncle Dirty's Sound Machine studios in Michigan in 1976, and which boasts a series of solid songs propelled by a tight rhythm section and some more-than respectable vocals, is always reviewed enthusiastically.

The album was recorded in 1975, and sounds somewhat typical of hard rock of it's vintage. One cut features good use of fuzz guitar, while the rest has good period flavor. But overall, this might not appeal to researchers seeking psychedelic rock. They were from northern Indiana.

CINDERELLA - Udkoksning I Tre Satser [1970 Denmark Hard Psych Blues Acid Rock]


UM ÓTIMO POWER TRIO DA DINAMARCA CUJO SOM NADA TEM A VER COM PROGRESSIVO COMO SUGERE NA CAPA DO ALBUM!! A SONORIDADE É BLUES ROCK ACIDO COM PITADAS PSYCH!! LANÇARAM UM UNICO ALBUM EM 1970 QUE ESTÁ AQUI NESSA COMPILAÇÃO E QUE CONTA AINDA COM ALGUMAS OUTRAS MÚSICAS GRAVADAS AO VIVO PELOS CARAS!! O DISCO DE 1970 ERA DE 7 POLEGADAS E QUANDO ESTAVAM PRESTES A LANÇAR A GRAVADORA SOFREU UM INCÊNDIO QUE DETONOU COM TODOS OS PLANOS DOS CARAS E COM ISSO O DISCO ORIGINAL NUNCA FOI LANÇADO!! SOMENTE EM 1990 A "SPECTATOR RECORDS" RECOPILA AS MASTER TAPES D ABANDA E LANÇA UM LP!! E DEPOIS VEIO ESSA COMPILAÇÃO QUE COLOCO A DISPOSIÇÃO DOS ENVENENADOS!! É UM BOM E RECOMENDADO VENENO!!
 
DANISH BAND THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PROGRESSIVE HOW SUGGESTS THE ALBUM COVER !! IT BLUES ROCK ACID PSYCH !! RECORDED A SINGLE ALBUM IN 1970 THAT ARE HERE IN THIS COMPILATION AND STILL HAS SOME OTHER SONGS RECORDED LIVE !! A GOOD ALBUM AND RECOMMENDED !!
 
Tracks 3 and 6 originally released as a single by Spectator in 1970 (MES 110).
Tracks 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 9 recorded at the Spectator studio, Hasseris in 1970.
Tracks 10 to 14 recorded live at Studenterforeningen, Copenhagen in 1972.
 
-----------------------------------------------------
The liner notes in the booklet are strangely enough only in Danish, as if there wouldn’t be any foreigners interested in this band. The only thing I can make of the notes is that they were noticeably influenced by Rory Gallager, Vanilla Fudge, Hendrix and Cream, and secondly by Zeppelin & Doors which from which I don’t find any influence. They covered a Cream song, “Mr.Fantasy”, and two Hendrix tracks, “Fire” and “Break Song”. This last track is really convincing and shows a direct Hendrix endowment, and great solo guitar. I also saw the name Peter Quaife, bass player from The Kinks, mentioned as producer for their only 1971 album.
 
More or less the only and sure deliberately arranged or prepaired song for the album is “Carlt”, one side of a very good single, which highlights with speeded up heavy percussion (congas, drums,..). I found out that after the single, most of the CD is this LP album, with an additional 5 live tracks. Without knowing that, the CD sounds more or less like one long concert. The group definitely stands in the walking shoes of that part of the psychrock scene which developed out of blues and boogie-woogie. As a progressive band for me they still stand in the shadow of their Swedish neighbours, but as a jamming band they have some convincing elements, although the music sometimes sound somewhat absorbed by the jamming nature, and the poor quality of the live recording is a confirmation to this feeling. We hear mostly fuckin’ rocking long jams and jammed songs, with dirty and fat guitars, which sound pretty smoked, -and who knows drugged and alcohol-boozed-. Like I was mentioning, at times this smoky and stoned atmosphere for the length of the CD works altough at times it is a bit saturating. The best sound for live recordings of this kind of music normally does not always matter too much, but in the end for me it did take its toll ; at the time when the last track, the rock’n roll “Long Tall Sally” comes in, I’m really drunk from the music and tired, and with a feeling as if I’m truly there at the concert I take a break to go for a pee.
