Country Joe & The Fish - C. J. Fish (1970 USA Rock Psycho)


UMA HOMENAGEM DESTE BLOG A ESTA BOA BANDA AMERICANA QUE TINHA UM ESTILO ROCK FOLK PSICODÉLICO E QUE FREQUENTEMENTE FLERTAVA COM BLUES!! OS CARAS ERAM ATIVOS PROTESTANTES CONTRA A GUERRA DO VIETNÃ E QUEM ASSISTIU AO FILME WOODSTOCK SABE BEM DO QUE EU TÔ FALANDO!! UM BELO DISCO E PRA MIM O MELHOR QUE ESTA BANDA GRAVOU!! VENENO DO BOM!!

Country Joe and the Fish went through a personnel change for their fifth album, CJ Fish, adding Greg Dewey, Doug Metzner, and Mark Kapner in place of David Cohen and "Chicken" Hirsh. They retained, however, their primary composers Barry Melton and Country Joe MacDonald, keeping the sound and style of the original band. CJ Fish is not as strong as their other albums, but it does have a few highlights. The content is typical Country Joe and the Fish: more love, less war, and the tunes are only a little fresher than the ideas. On their previous release Here We Are Again, they experimented with various styles. On CJ Fish, they tried to recapture the sound of their previous success, but they "went back to the well" only to find there wasn't much there. Most of the lyrics are thoughtful and bright; many are in rhyme as many of that time were. The overall timbre is interesting, being both joyful and sobering at the same time. Some bright spots in the material are "Hey Bobby," "She's a Bird," and "Hang On," which are delightfully Country Joe. Overall it's not a bad album and no Country Joe and the Fish collection is complete without it.
