BLUES CREATION - Live!

Straight from the Japan Folk Jamboree Circa 1971 comes Thee Mighty Blues Creation with their brand of electrified/electrifying bastardized heavy rock riffage. Yer unworthy earholes will have an audial orgasm as Lord of Hot Licks Kazuo ‘Flash’ Takeda and his band of not-so-merry-men stomp all over those foolish notions you had about what comprised Great Hard Rock.

Beginning in 1969 as a pedestrian, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers imitation, Kaz saw the limitations of being a purist and drafted a whole new lineup to shit all over such pursuits. He undoubtedly sat down with a big reefer and half-consciously nodded his noggin along with the first Sabbath LP… and the stone was cast. The Blues Creation Mk. II (Vocalist Fumio Nunoya, bassist Takayuki Noji & Minister of Battery Shinichi Tashiro) unleashed their masterwork, “Demon & Eleven Children” in ‘70 to plenty o’ fanfare in their native Japan. They were so respected in fact, that their label, Columbia Japan, wanting a shot to sign then-free agent, but extremely popular pop diva Carmen Maki, used ‘em as bait to get her to sign on the dotted line (she’d been itchin’ to be taken seriously as a rock ‘n’ roller).

That collaboration, the imaginatively-titled, “Blues Creation & Carmen Maki” is unlistenable at worst and mediocre at best. Maki, despite having decent range, had horrible phrasing and quite frankly, had nary a rockin’ bone in her lovely body. The band pumped out their usually head-spinning thunder all to no avail. Luckily, she only appears on one track on this here live LP (the easily skippable “Understand”), their swansong. They torch Muddy’s “Rolling Stone” and gobble, chew and spit out Loudermilk-by-way-of-Blues-Magoos standard, “Tobacco Road”. The highlight though, is the fuck-the-overdubs, screw-the-subtlety version of “Demon & Eleven Children”– the boys positively rape their instruments on this ‘un. Don’t get much better’n this, kids.
