Big Brother (featuring Ernie Joseph) – Confusion (1970 US Hard Rock Psych)


NÃO CONFUNDAM ESTA BANDA COM A BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY EX-BANDA DA JANIS JOPLIN!! ESTA É OUTRA MENOS POPULAR E FORMADA POR ERNIE JOSEPH!! DISCO RARO E VENENO DO BOM QUE MISTURAVA HARD ROCK COM INFLUÊNCIAS PSICODÉLICAS!!
Ranging from fuzzed out psychedelic influenced hard rock, to straight blues rock, this album covers a few musical spectrums, but doesn't have enough stand out tracks. The vocals sound forced, and the recorded quality isn't anything spectacular.

A Californian band (commune/family) who recorded their first album in Hollywood. Produced by Bill Holmes, the album is patchy. Its best tracks are the hard-rocking ESP and the dreamy Wake Me Up In The Morning. The album also includes an interesting long version of Saint James Infirmary.Before Big Brother, Ernie Joseph was known as Ernie Orosco and formed several Santa Barbara outfits including Ernie and The Emperors, Ernie's Funnys and Giant Crab.

Big Brother Feat. Ernie Joseph - Confusion Influenced by the guitar sounds of Hendrix, Cream and Jeff Beck, The Bill Holmes produced Confusion is an incendiary classic of British blues style guitar rock. The band, not to be confused with the similarly named and of course more popular Big Brother and the Holding Company made a name for themselves as a great live performance, often encouraging audience participation. Their on stage energy comes across well on the record, resulting in a loose charismatic album that only slows down long enough to sing a serenade on "Wake Me In The Morning." The rest blisters through with searing guitar virtuosity from Ernie Joseph and an organ sound that shows no signs of prog's impending overindulgence. A rock record from start to finish.

BLUE VELVETS & THE GOLLIWOGS - The Golliwogs (1966 Pré-Creedence Clearwater Revival)


THE GOLLIWOGS ERA A FUTURA BANDA CREDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL!! JOHN FOGERTY E CIA JÁ FAZIAM NESTA BANDA UM SONZAÇO DE PRIMEIRA LINHA COM O VOCAL POTENTE DO JOHN!! IMPERDÍVEL PRA QUEM GOSTA DE CREEDENCE!! NA VERDADE A HISTÓRIA DIZ QUE O EMBRIÃO DA BANDA CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL FOI FUNDADO AINDA EM 1959, CHAMAVA-SE BLUE VELVETS E ERA FORMADA PELOS IRMÃOS JOHN FOGERTY (VOCALISTA E GUITARRISTA), E TOM FOGERTY (GUITARRISTA), STUART COOK (BAIXO) E DOUGLAS CLIFFORD (BATERIA). EM 1966 CONSEGUIRAM SEU PRIMEIRO CONTRATO COM UMA GRAVADORA, A FANTASY, E COM O NOME DE THE GOLLIWOGS GRAVARAM DOIS SINGLES E UM LP. EMBORA NÃO TIVESSEM GRANDES PRETENSÕES FORAM BEM ACEITOS. EM 1967 MUDARAM O NOME DA BANDA PARA CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL E A BOA ACEITAÇÃO DOS PRIMEIROS SINGLES LEVOU-OS A DEIXAR DE SER APENAS UMA BANDA DE COVERS DOS ANOS 50 PARA SE ARRISCAR EM SUAS PRÓPRIAS COMPOSIÇÕES!!

The Golliwogs was an American rock band which eventually became Creedence Clearwater Revival. The band started out, in 1959, as an instrumental trio called The Blue Velvets. The original line up was John Fogerty (guitar), Stu Cook (piano), and Doug Clifford (drums). In 1960, John's older brother Tom, who had been in local bands since 1958, began singing with the group.

The Blue Velvets released three singles in the San Francisco Bay area, during 1961 and 1962, on Oakland's Orchestra Records. These recordings received only minimal sales although the second Blue Velvets single was added to Oakland's KEWB top 40 playlist by famed disc jockey Casey Kasem, who was employed at the station.

Following the Orchestra singles, Tom began playing rhythm guitar in addition to remaining the lead vocalist and front man while John continued as the lead guitarist. Meanwhile, Stu Cook switched from piano to bass guitar.

In the middle of 1964, the band recorded two songs for Fantasy Records, a local label based in San Francisco. The band was attracted to Fantasy because, in 1963, it had released a national hit by Vince Guaraldi, "Cast Your Fate To The Wind". Max Weiss, one of Fantasy's co-owners initially changed the group's name to The Visions, but when their songs were released as a single, in November 1964, Weiss re-named them The Golliwogs, an apparent reference to a once-popular minstrel doll called a Golliwogg. Seven singles were released in the San Francisco Bay area. While none of these broke out nationally, one, "Brown Eyed Girl," was a near break out in Miami, Fla., for four weeks beginning on February 26, 1966, when it reached #10 on Billboard's "Regional Breakout" chart for Miami (a chart one level below their Bubbling Under charts).

Eventually John Fogerty took control of the group, writing all of their material, singing lead vocals, and blossoming into a multi-instrumentalist who played bass, keyboards, and harmonica in addition to lead guitar. By 1967, he was producing the group's recordings.

In December 1967, the band changed its name to Creedence Clearwater Revival. The band's first album as Creedence Clearwater Revival was released in 1968. In 1975 Fantasy released Pre-Creedence, a compilation album of recordings by The Golliwogs. Fantasy also included an extensive collection of Blue Velvets and Golliwogs recordings in their 2001 CCR box set.

JIMMY PAGE & JOHN PAUL JONES - No Introduction Necessary (1968 Garage Rock Psych)


MEUS AMIGOS AQUI TEMOS UM DISCO HISTÓRICO, POIS ESTE ALBUM TRATA-SE DE NADA MAIS NADA MENOS QUE O INÍCIO DO INÍCIO DA BANDA "LED ZEPPELIN!! É VERDADE SIM!! GRAVADO ORIGINALMENTE EM 1968 ESTE ALBUM PODE SER CONSIDERADO O PRIMEIRO PASSO, O INÍCIO DA FORMAÇÃO DA BANDA "NEW YARDBIRDS", QUE TODOS SABEM, POSTERIORMENTE TROCOU DE NOME PARA "LED ZEPPELIN, UMA DAS MAIORES BANDAS DE TODOS OS TEMPOS!! ESTE ALBUM TEM UMA SONORIDADE MAIS PSICODÉLICA DO QUE HARD ROCK, PORÉM COM UM TOQUE BLUESEIRO QUE VINHA A SER POSTERIORMENTE UMA DAS MARCAS SONORAS DO LED ZEPPELIN!! DE TODA FORMA TRATA-SE DE UM DISCO BASTANTE PSICODÉLICO!! O ALBUM NÃO É NENHUMA OBRA PRIMA MAS É ACIMA DA MÉDIA E VALE MAIS AINDA PELO VERDADEIRO ELO PERDIDO QUE SIGNIFICA, PELA SUA EXTREMA RARIDADE E, PRINCIPALMENTE, PARA OS FÃS ALUCIANDOS DE LED ZEPPELIN QUE TEM AÍ A OPORTUNIDADE DE CONFERIR O VERDADEIRO INÍCIO DESTA GRANDE BANDA!! VEJAM QUE A PARCERIA É FORTE!! JIMMY PAGE, JOHN PAUL JONES, ALBERT LEE, NICKY HOPKINS ENTRE OUTROS!! É UM TIMASSO!!

Before the name Jimmy Page became synonymous with hard rock guitar, the guitarist was a much sought-after session player in London — appearing on a variety of artists' recordings. Some were well known (the Kinks, the Who, etc.), but quite a few were obscurities — which serves as the basis for the 20-track No Introduction Necessary [Deluxe Edition]. Although Led Zeppelin touched upon a variety of musical styles throughout their career, the first 14 tracks could all be neatly placed in the 1960s rock & roll/pop genre — the amps are certainly not cranked to ten here. But you do get a glimpse into Page's playing as a 'hired gun' — "Lovin' Up a Storm" and "Boll Weevil Song" are enjoyable (yet not exactly 'must-hear') selections. Closer to the hard rock sound you expect from Page are several tracks that close out the collection, which are taken from the obscure 1970 Screaming Lord Sutch recording, Lord Sutch and Heavy Friends. Page produces and plays on the record (even co-penning a few tracks), and while the music does reflect early Led Zeppelin at times (John Bonham also plays), the vocals of Screaming Lord Sutch don't come close to matching up to those of Robert Plant. Overall, not a bad compilation of Page's early playing.

Fashion Pink - Encore (1969-1975 German Rock Prog Psych)


FASHION PINK NOS PROPORCIONOU ESTE DISCASSO ONDE A BANDA TRABALHA MUITO BEM A FLAUTA E O ORGAN E QUE EM MUITOS MOMENTOS LEMBRA A BANDA "JETHRO TULL", PORÉM BEM MAIS TRABALHADO E CERTAMENTE MUITO MELHOR!!

VENENO RARO E DE EXCELENTE EFEITO!!

Schauffer and Rusch had played together before in other bands. In the summer of 1968, they contacted Eddy von Overheidt and Jürgen Argast – and "Fashion Pink" was born. The band was complete when Joe Koinzer joined them.

Rusch modelled himself on Jimi Hendrix and was the first to play a Fender Stratocaster including a Marshall-tower. Fashion Pink were the first in Baden-baden to play so called progressive underground music, mixed with jazz elements and free-jazz intermezzos. However, this line-up was only short-lived, since Helmut was drafted by the army and Jürgen left the band due to differences about the music.

Argast was replaced with Rainer Bodensohn, who had originally learnt to play the guitar, but later on chose the transverse flute as his main instrument and also played bass. Before Helmut left the band in October 1969, Fashion Pink were the first of many bands to give a guest performance with the radio station Südwestfunk (today SWR) in Baden-Baden, and so this promising up-and-coming band recorded songs in Südwestfunk’s recording studio U1. On 15.6.1969, the band including Rusch recorded the titles "Peeling Beans" (composed by Roland Schaeffer) and "Forget it, I got it" (Spooky Tooth).

The titles of this album impressively show the development of the band, the influences that worked on it, its models and how the band eventually found their own style, which became even more distinct in the follow-up band "Brainstorm".

The titles 01-07 are the ones that were recorded in Südwestfunk’s studio U1 between 1969-1971. The live version of "Watch time flows by" was recorded off the mixing desk during a live appearance in Ludwigshafen in 1971. Titles 09-17 were originally recorded for a cosmetics company mini LP, only sent to their own customers. Parts of the titles were to be used in later musical epics.

In early 1972 the band changed its name into Brainstorm. The bonus track "Stars on stage" was recorded live during a gig in Ludwigshafen on 29.6.1975 under this name.

Line-up :
* Roland Schauffer / guitar, bass, saxophones, vibraphone
* Eddy V. Overheidt / organ, electric piano, clavinet, vocals
* Reiner Bodensohn / bass, flute
* Joe Koinzer / drums, percussions
* Harald Wagner / bass (1-5)
* Helmut Rusch / guitar (6, 7)

Wilkinson Tri-Cycle - Wilkinson Tri-Cycle (1969 US Rock Prog Psych Bluesy)


POWER TRIO DE HARD ROCK PSICODÉLICO (NÃO MUITO HARD) E COM LEVÍSSIMOS TOQUES SOUL E ACERTADAS HARMONIAS VOCAIS!! NAS FAIXAS "LEAVIN TRUNK" E "ANTIQUES LOCOMOTIVES" O ESTILO É ELECTRIC BLUES!! NAS FAIXAS "WHAT OF I" E "POURSCHA POE" O ESTILO É MAIS PSYCH PROG COMERCIAL!! E NAS DEMAIS FAIXAS O ESTILO É BASICAMENTE ACID-INFLUENCED E PSICODELIA PROGRESSIVA DA GEMA!! VENENO DE EXTREMA RARIDADE E ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!!

Wilkinson Tri-Cycle combined a more melodic approach with flashes of heavy rock. They had the power behind them but were more prone to take excoursions into psychedelic imagery and softer moments of balladry. Again the touch of Schatz and Schlaks can be heard in the production on this, the band's sole album. Taking their hand at blues classics like "Leaving Trunk", made famous by the great Taj Mahal, they handle them skill but not necessarily ingenuity. The variety of the album works well together, never really rutting into one sound for too long but keeping consistent through the ever-present blues rumble of David Mello's leads. A thoroughly enjoyable listen, though not necessarily a lost classic.

This obscure power trio is thought to have come from Boston, where they supported the Velvet Underground in 1969, the same year their sole LP appeared. An inspired blend of tough electric blues (Leavin' Trunk, Antique Locomotives), commercial songs with distinctive hooks (What Of I?, Pourscha Poe) and more overtly acid-influenced material (David's Rush, Yellow Wall), it's an overlooked psychedelic gem that deserves far wider recognition.

A strange bit of lost psychedelia -- one of the many gems recorded by Columbia during the late 60s and early 70s by artists like this group, who left behind a brief and strong recorded legacy, but never really made it big time. The album's got a spacey feel on most tracks -- with a mix of tripped out guitar, bass, and drums that ring out in kind of a post-Jefferson Airplane vein. Vocals are spooky enough -- and titles include "Yellow Wall", "I Like Your Company", "9-5, 95", "David's Rush", and "What Of I". This obscure power trio is thought to have come from Boston, where they supported the Velvet Underground in 1969, the same year their sole LP appeared. An inspired blend of tough electric blues (Leavin' Trunk , Antique Locomotives), commercial songs with distinctive hooks (What Of I?, Pourscha Poe) and more overtly acid-influenced material (David's Rush, Yellow Wall), it's an overlooked psychedelic gem that deserves far wider recognition.

Jericho Jones - Junkies Monkeys & Donkeys (1971 Israeli Rock Prog Psych)


GREAT ISRAEL BAND!! GREAT POISON!! BANDA ISRAELENSE DA MELHOR SAFRA!! ESTA BANDA ANTES SE CHAMAVA "THE CHURCHILLS" E FÊZ COM ESTE NOME UM EXCELENTE ALBUM QUE VOU POSTAR LOGO DEPOIS DESSE!! TAMBÉM VOU POSTAR O TERCEIRO ALBUM DOS CARAS DEPOIS QUE VIERAM A SE CHAMAR APENAS JERICHO!! VENENO ISRAELENSE DA MELHOR QUALIDADE!! VEJAM A HISTÓRIA DOS CARAS E DOS DOIS DISCOS QUE TIREI DA NET E QUE FOI ESCRITO COM PROPRIEDADE POR WAGNER XAVIER!!

Jericho Jones, ou simplesmente Jericho. Se você não conhece, sem problemas, afinal pouquíssimas pessoas no país deviam conhecê-los antes dos bens lembrados re-lançamentos destas verdadeiras obras de arte do rock and roll.

A banda Jericho Jones, originária de Israel, apesar de uma pequena discografia, teve três nomes durante sua existência. Eles iniciaram suas atividades ainda em Israel em meados de 1968 com o nome de The Churchills. Com o objetivo de se projetar no cenário roqueiro, a banda tomou duas atitudes; primeiro, mudou-se para a Inglaterra; segundo, trocou o nome para Jericho Jones. Formada por Alain Romano (Guitarra), Mike Gabrielle (Baixo), Robb Huxley (guitarra), Danny Shoshan (Vocal) e Ami Criebich (bateria), o quinteto Jericho Jones iniciou sua carreira discográfica com o excelente álbum "Junkies, Monkeys & Donkeys" de 1971. O álbum, é uma mistura de hard rock com alguns momentos que lembram o psicodelismo do final dos anos 60. A primeira faixa é "More Tranquilitatas" (2’21), cujo trabalho instrumental é o grande destaque. A faixa começa numa levada pop da época, dando a impressão que o álbum irá seguir esta linha. Em seguida, "Main in the Crowd" (3’16”) mostra para que o Jericho veio. Faixa pesada, com grande trabalho de guitarra, enfim, puro hard rock da melhor safra. A música seguinte, "There is Always a Train" (6’35) mostra que o disco realmente é muito bom. Com um belo dueto vocal, violões e guitarras bem dosadas – Excelente !!!. A faixa seguinte, "Yellow and Blue" (5’01) é uma balada que neste momento cai muito bem (para garantir um fôlego para o restante do álbum).

O início da próxima faixa, "Freedom" (3’50) lembra bastante a levada de "Cocaine" (J.J. Cale) gravada também por Eric Clapton, com algumas pitadas de guitarra a lá Rolling Stones – Muito Boa !!!. Segue-se a curta instrumental "Triangnium" (0’48) e a ótima No School To-Day (5’51). A faixa título, "Junkies, Monkeys & Donkeys" (7’36) surge enigmática, progressiva, lembrando (inevitável) Led Zeppelin em alguns momentos. É outra que também se destaca pelo excelente instrumental, ótimo vocal e solo de guitarra dos melhores. O disco, com 10 canções chega ao final com a melhor faixa de todas. Chamada "What Have We Got to Lose" (4’26) é uma música perfeita, combinação de peso, melodia e um grande instrumental – Enfim, Fantástica ...

Este álbum, diferentemente do segundo, se caracteriza por uma maior diversidade, mais próximo de influências da época, como Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, entre outros. Recentemente este álbum foi relançado pela Akarma, numa edição luxuosa, trazendo, inclusive, cinco canções inéditas (de primeira linha) da banda.

O segundo álbum já traz apenas Jericho e é puro hard rock. Lançado em 1972, o disco homônimo já possui um estilo mais definido. Contra o fato de não ser tão variado, temos a qualidade de ouvir um disco mais pesado, denso e ainda com a
excepcional qualidade da banda.

O disco abre com "Ethiopia" (4’20), de cara um show instrumental. Ouvindo este som tem-se a impressão de estarmos nos anos 80 ouvindo aquele metal alucinado. O guitarrista é simplesmente sensacional. "Don’t You Let Me Down" (3’40), dá um tempo no peso e nos apresenta outra boa canção. O disco também contém "Justin and Nova" (7’15), linda de morrer, balada com um belo teclado e vocal em grande estilo. A musica conta até com orquestra (coisa meio em moda hoje em dia) – um primor de música !!! Para finalizar segue a longa e épica "Kill Me With Your Love" (9’00), que para deixar o leitor entusiasmado e curioso, também é muito boa. Um rockão .... na veia Este segundo disco também foi relançado, pela Repertoire, alguns anos atrás.

Infelizmente após estes dois discos o Jericho encerrou suas atividades. Porém fica como legado esta pequena obra (prima) que apesar do tempo, não soa datado, velho ou coisa parecida (existem discos que, como uma boa bebida, ficam melhores a medida que o tempo passa – e este parece ser o caso) e merece ser escutado com bastante atenção, pois faz jus a fama do hard rock setentista. O Jericho Jones (ou Jericho) pode não ter alcançado um grande sucesso em sua época, mas é inegável não reconhecer sua qualidade, estilo próprio e grande capacidade de criar grandes canções. Mesmo ouvindo várias bandas da época, seguramente classifico o Jericho como uma das melhores bandas do estilo. Sua força instrumental é fantástica, além de contar com um cantor com uma grande voz. Aproveite .... corra para conhecer !!!

The Churchills band(aka Jericho Jones or Jericho) were an Israeli band that formed a Psychedelic hard rock band sometime in 1965 and put out three sought after classics.The 1968 Cherchilim album has alot of early 60's garage psych sounds,at times sounding a bit like the Doors.The album Junkies,Monkeys and Donkeys came out in 1971.It came out not as the Churchills but as Jericho Jones.Apparently the name Churchills didnt go well with the british press.In 1972 followed an ep with five songs.Simply dropping the "Jones" they went on to be known as Jericho. The Lineup changes in The Churchills were many,and it is divided into four different ensembles from 1965-1973.

Info:
The Churchills (or The Churchills Band) is an Israeli band founded in 1965, and was active until the mid-70s. It was a part of the rythm bands scene that were active in Israel in the 70s, especially in Ramla. The band played Rock music in English, from Psychedelic Rock to Hard Rock. It was also active in other countries, under the name of Jericho Jones, so their name wouldn't offend the British. The band has been a leading force in the early Israely beat scene, but it was their cooperation with Arik Einstein that helped them cross over to the mainstream of Israeli pop and gain recognition. Their collaboration with Einstein proved to be very influentive on the Israeli rock. It began when The Churchills were invited to work with einstein on his third solo album Poozy, recorded in 1969. This is considered by many to be the very first true rock album in hebrew. The Churchills played on half of the tracks in that album, one of them was a hebrew version of one of their own songs ("When you're gone"). Following "Poozy", the Churchills also played with Einstein in his gigs, and continued to play and produce three more albums with Einstein: Shablul (1970), Plastelina(1970) and On Avigdor's Grass" (1971). . Instrumantal to the Churchills' sound at the time was the joining of two foreign members - Canadian vocalist Stan Solomon and British guitarist Robb Huxley (formerly with the Tornados).

REPOST: Albert King & John Mayall - The Lost Session 1971

Recorded at Wolfman Jack Studios, Los Angeles, California. The tapes of this Albert King/John Mayall album were discovered by Bill Belmont in 1986 while rummaging through the Stax vaults looking for Albert King tapes for an album of unreleased blues material. It was produced by John Mayall at Wolfman Jack Studios in Los Angeles on August 28, 1971. As to why it wasn't released at the time of its recording, Mayall said The intent was to make it different from the Stax sound. I accomplished that but also got it canned because Stax obviously couldn't cope with that. It didn't sound like their stuff, so they didn't release it. It is an inspired pairing of King, one of the most influential guitar stylist of the modern blues, and Mayall, the chief conceptualist of the British blues revival of the Sixties. This LP is very different. Albert plays with no effects, feedback or sustain. It's just plain straight ahead Blues. He also sings in mostly guitar keys instead of his usual Jazz keys. Mayall contributes all of the song's frameworks and King wrote the lyrics- mostly from his other songs and his expansive knowledge of old blues lyrics from Johnson, Brown, Robert Nighthawk, Elmore James, and many more!It sounds different from anything King had recorded before or since, a three-way fusion of Mississippi Delta blues, British blues, and Los Angeles jazz.There are many great tunes on this collection, but "Sun Gone Down-takes 1 & 2" have to be at the top. A great slow blues- one of King's best. "Brand New Razor" is a great tune. It really jumps! "Money Lovin Woman" showcases King's famous talking blues ability. In fact the whole set is really great, different and interesting.

While the music the group made during this period was blues based, much of it can't really be called straight blues. But Siegel-Schwall always marched to the beat of a different drummer and just how different is collected up nicely here with everything from traditional blues ("Corrina," "Next to You," "Blues for a Lady," "[I Wish I Was on A] Country Road") to New Orleans funk ("Old Time Shimmy") to what can only be described as polka-blues ("Somethin's Wrong," "Sick to My Stomach") in the mix. Grab this one after you digest their earlier Vanguard sides for the full picture. ~ Cub Koda, All Music Guide

Freedom - Through The Years (1971 Hard Rock Bluesy)


GREAT BAND!! GREAT ALBUM!! MAIS UMA POSTAGEM DESTA EXCELENTE BANDA BRITÂNICA QUE FAZIA UM HARD ROCK COM PITADAS BLUES DE PRIMEIRÍSSIMA LINHA!! O DISCO JÁ COMEÇA FORTE COM UMA PEGADA HARD EM "FREESTONE"!! A FAIXA "THROUGH THE YEARS" JÁ TRABALHA MAIS COM UMA GUITARRA ACÚSTICA AO ESTILO DAS BANDAS SULISTAS AMERICANAS!! UMA OBRA!! BEM, O DISCO TODO É UMA OBRA E POR ISSO SÓ DESTACO MAIS A FAIXA 5 "THANKS" UMA BALADA MONUMENTAL A QUAL EU DEDICO E ACONSELHO AO MEU AMIGO NÊNE DA CIDADE DE IJUÍ/RS, UM GRANDE ADMIRADOR DE BOAS BALADAS DO ROCK E AQUI ESTÁ UMA DAS MELHORES!! FREEDOM!! GRANDE BANDA!!

Heavy, blues-tinted rock album, craftily played, but with not much originality. Some tracks sound like The Free, but with a great distance to that band's intensity. Saunders plays nice interceptions and some able solos, but the lack of something like an own handwriting mars almost every track. Some of the lyrics are examplary for what's wrong here: way down in the valley/ where the green grass grows. How poetically inspired can you get?

It's monday morning in the art departments too. A lackadaisical bandphoto, mirrored around the spine of the gatefold is not our idea of inventive graphics, though the magenta and scarlet of the leaves is at least something.The lettering is awkwardly placed, lovelessly coloured and of an unfitting font.The inside picture, taken in Hyde Park, where the band sits beside a very sceptical hippie chick, is very effective, though. It conveys perfectly the London atmosphere in the early seventies.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Freshly departed from PROCOL HARUM, Bobby Harrison & Ray Royer founded FREEDOM, a Heavy Blues infected Psych Rock combo, that toured with BLACK SABBATH among others. FREEDOM never reached great success and is often seen as a middle-of-the-pack band. Sure it's not as inventive and catchy as other British bands of the era, but FREEDOM still delivers some great tunes and good Heavy Rock tracks that really deserve a listen.

REPOST: Cuby and The Blizzards - Groeten Uit Grollo (1967 Holand Blues Rock)


REPOSTAGEM DA SÉRIE DAQUELES DISCOS QUE TINHAM LINKS PARA O SHAREONALL!! ESTA É MAIS UMA BARBADA PARA OS ENVENENADOS!! RARIDADE MÁXIMA!! JÁ É O QUARTO ALBUM DESTA EXCELENTE BANDA HOLANDESA POSTADO NESTE BLOG!! É SOM E RARIDADE DA MELHOR QUALIDADE!! CUBY AND THE BLIZZARDS!! NÃO CONSUMA COM MODERAÇÃO!!

It’s 1964, Britain has got their Stones, their Beatles, their Animals and a truckload of other “blues”-bands. And Holland? The Dutch just got themselves Cuby & The Blizzards. Unlike so many little white blues bands in the mid-sixties, these guys actually know their stuff. In a few years time, they don’t just rock the proverbial boat a bit, they actually matter. When Van Morrisson calls it quits with Them, they back him up until he manages to get his solo-career going. Sometime during 1967, Eddie Boyd is touring Holland and Western Europe, and ends up with John Mayall staying at Harry “Cuby” Muskee’s farm in Grollo. This resulted in the 1967 album “Praise The Blues”. Their other 1967 release was “Groeten Uit Grollo” (“Greetings From Grollo”). The latter record kicks off with a strong, full sound of early blues-rock, firmly planted in the Chicago blues and more importantly, the sound of John Lee Hooker. But this act was more then just overdriven guitars and a big amp-stack, and they aren’t afraid to show it. The band is tight, experienced for its youth, and the musicianship displayed here is only hinting to the greatness to come over the next four decades.Right from the moment the Blizzards were formed, they were a domestic hit, and this record shows very well why. These are white kids, grown up in relative security and wealth, yet they understand the blues the way John Mayall or Eric Clapton understand the blues. Subsequently, The Blizzards ended up being more or less to the Dutch blues scene what the Headhunters had been to the early post-war Chicago blues circuit. The music on this disc follows standard blues patterns, the chord changes are regular, the turn-arounds are basic and standard, but the entirety of its sound is something else. Cuby can belt the blues, that’s obvious from the first cut. The piano has a strong foundation in the band. Herman Brood (who was to go on to be one of the mainstays in Dutch pop-music and sadly committed suicide in 2001) knew his blues piano, and already shows that he could sing too.Cuby’s ability to write good lyrics shines through very strong here. His lyrics have hints towards the blues lyrics of the future, of today.From the first day on, Cuby & the Blizzards have drawn strongly on their main influence, the King of Boogie, John Lee Hooker. They honor him here with their own renditions of a couple of his sixties-cuts: “King Of The World” and “No Shoes”. Strictly speaking “Baby Please Don’t Go” could be in that list too, but to my ear they are tipping their hat to Lightnin’ Hopkins and Big Joe Williams more there then to Hooker. “The Big Bell” is of course an Eddie Boyd song.Cuby always has had his own philosophy of how to play John Lee Hooker’s work. He believes in giving it your own spin: you shouldn’t try to sound like the master, ‘cause you can’t. I’m not sure if I agree with him, but one thing I do know: Cuby’s renditions are certainly worthy.

1. Another Day, Another Road

The Animals - Animalism (1964-1968 UK Blues Rock)


MEUS AMIGOS ENVENENADOS: AQUI ESTÁ O MELHOR E MAIS RARO DISCO DOS "THE ANIMALS" E QUE TINHA COMO ARRANJADOR NADA MAIS NADA MENOS DO QUE FRANK ZAPPA!! CERTAMENTE TAMBÉM TRATA-SE DE UM DOS MELHORES E MAIS RAROS DISCOS DE BLUES BRANCO DOS ANOS 60 QUE TRÁZ UMA COLEÇÃO DE CLÁSSICOS DO BLUES!! NESTE DISCO OS CARAS TAVAM NO AUGE DA CARREIRA E O SOM É TUDO DE PRIMEIRA, ROCK, BLUES, RHYTHYM N'BLUES E A VOZ IMPRESSIONANTE DE ERIC BURDON!! NÃO CONFUNDA COM O OUTRO TÍTULO QUE HAVIA SIDO LANÇADO NO MERCADO QUE ERA "ANIMALISMS" COM A LETRA "S" NO FINAL!! VENENASSO!!

If the Animals had never recorded another album except for Animalism, their musical reputation would have been assured -- none of the participants ever participated on, or would ever work on, a better long-player. The irony was that Animalism (not to be confused with the group's earlier, British-issued Animalisms, or its American counterpart, Animalization) was only ever issued in America, and came out after the group had ceased to exist and, thus, was scarcely noticed by anybody (which made it a choice occupant of cut-out bins for decades). Recorded mostly during the spring and summer of 1966 by the lineup of Eric Burdon, Hilton Valentine, Chas Chandler, Dave Rowberry, and Barry Jenkins, Animalism proved to be a glorious musical high point, as well as an end point for the band. Even as they were playing out their string, all of the members had begun growing in their musicianship, with guitarist Hilton Valentine taking on a much bolder, bluesier voice on his instrument and keyboardist Dave Rowberry developing a sound as distinctive as that of his predecessor, Alan Price. Part of Animalism was cut in Los Angeles under the aegis of Frank Zappa, who arranged (and probably played on) the opening number, "All Night Long," a surging traditional blues song, and who also worked on the album's ominous rendition of "The Other Side of This Life." Sam Cooke's "Shake" is treated to a restrained Burdon vocal and superb musical acrobatics by Valentine and Rowberry, while B.B. King's "Rock Me Baby" becomes the vehicle for a virtuoso workout by Valentine, and a thunderous performance by Chandler and Jenkins. "Smokestack Lightning" is the most successful cover the group ever did of a Chicago blues number (unless you count their version of Donovan's "Hey Gyp," which is also here in all of its Bo Diddley-inspired glory), and "Hit the Road, Jack" represents the best work that Burdon ever did with a Ray Charles number. After years of languishing out of print -- with many vinyl junkies hunting down treasured copies -- Animalism was finally issued on CD in January of 2006 by Hip-O Select for a limited Internet-only purchase. For the uninitiated, Animalism is the place to start.

Master's Apprentices - Nickelodeon (1971 Australian Hard Rock Bluesy)

SEGUE COM "EVIL WOMAN" UM HARD ROCK BLUES COM 13 MINUTOS DE DURAÇÃO QUE É UMA OBRA PRIMA!! BEM, AS DEMAIS FAIXAS SEGUEM A MESMA LINHA COM ALGUMAS PASSAGENS MAIS LEVES, MAS O PREDOMÍNIO É O HARD ROCK MESCLADO COM BLUES AO ESTILO SETENTISTA E FEITO COM MAESTRIA!! CERTAMENTE ESTE É UM DOS GRANDES DISCOS DESTE ESTILO!! VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!! NÃO SÓ DE CANGURU VIVE A AUSTRALIA!!

A highly-rated band who formed in Adelaide in 1965. Their diverse musical styles ranged from R'n'B to psychedelic rock to heavy rock. They were one of Australia's most popular bands of the sixties and their talent has continued to be recognised to this day.They formed out of the instrumental outfit The Mustangs who started playing raucous R'n'B material penned by their guitarist Mick Bower and took on vocalist Jim Keays at the same time.In early 1967 they moved to Melbourne and put out their eponymous debut album, which contained both sides of their first two singles to name some of its fine original material. It also contained a splattering of cover versions like I Feel Fine, Johnny B. Goode and My Girl.They started out as one of Australia's top R'n'B bands in the sixties and had moved into psych-pop territory towards the end of the decade. They had veered towards progressivism by the start of the seventies and Turn Up Your Radio in 1970 gave them their first and only Top 10 hit. This was pure pop, but on the flip side was Jam It Up, a Led Zeppelin-style heavy metal raver that didn't appear on album, until Raven included it on their 1987 Jam It Up! rarities album.By 1971 The Masters' had established themselves as one of Australia's finest progressive music acts. They were living in England in this era and that clearly helped keep them fully abreast of the latest trends. Their Choice Cuts album and Because I Love You 45 were both recorded at Abbey Road's No. 2 studio. The 45 gave them a No. 12 National hit. It was a strong song, superbly arranged and has stood the test of time well. The album could be termed hard progressive rock. Doug Ford's inventive guitar skills are in evidence on tracks like I'm Your Satisfier, Death Of A King and Song For A Lost Gypsy. Other songs which catch the ear are the haunting Michael, the latin-flavoured Rio De Camero, the pop classic Because I Love You and Our Friend Owsley Stanley III, which at times recalls the style of Jethro Tull (and is about the legendary U.S. underground manufacturer of L.S.D.).The same year The Masters' also released a live album, Nickelodeon. It was recorded just after they arrived back from England for an Australian tour in December 1970. It's notable for being one of the first live albums recorded in Australia, but in truth is disappointing. The better moments include a spirited version of Because I Love You and Doug Ford's Future Of Our Nation which features a series of his lead solo's. This track was issued as a 45 with a non-album cut, the folksy New Day on the flip. Much of the album was self-indulgent with the nineteen-minute version of Spooky Tooth's Evil Woman typical of the malaise. Now, ironically, the album is a sought-after rarity and has even been pirated, but if it's quality music you're seeking beware!

Recorded live in concert by Howard Gable Nickelodeon Theatre, Perth, December 1970

OS CARAS FIZERAM NO FINAL DOS ANOS 90 UM DISCASSO CHEIO DE BLUES ROCK QUE FAZEM A GENTE SE SENTIR AINDA NOS ANOS 60!! GRANDE DISCO DE UMA GRANDE BANDA!! TEM ATÉ UMA VERSÃO COM ROUPAGEM NOVA DO GRANDE HITS DOS 60 DA BANDA "GOIN' UP THE COUNTRY" QUE FICOU MUITO MAIS ACÚSTICA COM O USO PRIMOROSO DE UMA SLIDE GUITAR!! VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO AOS AMANTES DO GÊNERO E A TODOS AQUELES QUE ADMIRAM MÚSICOS QUE NÃO SE RENDEM AO COMERCIALISMO E AO CAPITALISMO!!

O Canned Heat é uma banda de blues/rock/boogie formada nos EUA em 1965 por Alan Wilson (gaita, guitarra) e Bob Hite (vocal). O álbum de estréia foi "Canned Heat", lançado em 1967 logo após a aparição da banda no Festival de Monterey. O segundo álbum, "Boogie With Canned Heat" (1968), foi o maior sucesso comercial do Canned Heat, puxado pelo single "On The Road Again".Em 1969 saiu o 3° disco, "Livin' The Blues", trazendo seu maior hit, "Goin' Up The Country". O Canned Heat se apresentou no Festival de Woodstock.Em maio de 1970, o Canned Heat se juntou ao bluesman John Lee Hooker para gravar o álbum "Hooker 'n' Heat".

Tudo ia muito bem quando, em setembro de 1970, Alan Wilson foi encontrado morto por overdose de drogas num aparente suicídio. Com a morte de Wilson, encerra-se a fase clássica do Canned Heat. O irmão de Bob Hite, Richard Hite, entrou para a banda em 1971 e o Canned Heat continuou lançando álbuns com diversas mudanças na formação. Em 1981, Bob Hite morreu de ataque cardíaco logo após uma apresentação da banda. O Canned Heat continua na ativa até hoje.

REVIEW 1:

A little tear came to my eye when the editor brought me a stack of CDs. There at the top was Canned Heat - the boogie band that peaked my interest in R&B, gulp, 30 years ago. "Could this be the same band? I mean, aren't they all dead?'' I asked him. He shook his head, told me three of the original members are on the album and to have fun. And I did. Singer Bob Hite, guitarists Alan Wilson and, recently, Henry Vestine, have gone to their reward, but the rhythm section of drummer Fito de la Parra and acoustic bassist Larry Taylor remains. And that's one fine engine to have in your band and it boogies better than ever. The new Heat has slide guitarist/harp player Robert Lucas on vocals, Greg Kage on electric bass and lead guitarist Junior Watson has been a Canned Heat-er for a while now. Vestine, who died in December of '97, made this his last work, playing on every cut and his sound remained distinctive to the end. The Canned Heat of the late '90s is pretty good and so's the album, if you can look at them with a fresh eye and not with 1968-vision. The band that played Woodstock was magic and unique in their time. The new Heat isn't magic, but it is a better-than-average blues band doing a good job of keeping the franchise boogying. Lucas adds some energy with his slide playing, singing and original songs, but to be honest, the originals are only average at best. A version of Elmore James "Stranger'' is excellent and a great opener for the CD, but I winced when I saw they had re-done Canned Heat classics "Going Up the Country'' acoustically, "Boogie Music'' and "One Kind Favor'' here. But darned if they didn't pull em off and in the process, saved the album. I don't know what the plans are for this band. They'll probably stay together in some form or fashion forever. They remain popular in Europe and still have their fans stateside. Give this one a listen. They brought a smile to my face and revived some great memories. I want to hear more from them.
Jack Clifford, MemphisMojo

REVIEW 2:

An outfit with deep blues/rock roots is Canned Heat Blues Band. Three members who date back to the 1960s version of the band, drummer Fito de la Parra, lead guitarist Henry "The Sunflower" Vestine, and bassist Larry "The Mole" Taylor, are on this latest self-titled disc on Ruf Records. They're joined by Robert Lucas on guitar, harmonica, and vocals, Junior Watson on lead guitar, and Greg Kage on electric bass. This CD contains no big surprises, and is kind of what you'd expect from Canned Heat. If you miss the 60s, then take a listen to "Boogie Music," which has a real feel of that wacky decade to it. The band also does an acoustic version of the Alan Wilson/Canned Heat standard "Going Up The Country", with good slide guitar and raspy vocals from Lucas. By the way, this session constituted the last recordings by Vestine, who died in Paris late last year.

Front Page Review - Mystic Soldiers (1968 US Rare Psychedelic Rock)


GREAT RARITY, GREAT ALBUM, GREAT BAND, GREAT POISON!! UM GRANDE VENENO PSICODÉLICO E UM DOS MEUS DISCOS PREFERIDOS!! PSICODELIA COM INFLUÊNCIAS DA BANDAS CALIFORNIANAS E UMA HARMONIA PERFEITA!! GRANDE BANDA, GRANDE ALBUM E UM VENENO RARO E DE EFEITO GARANTIDO PRA QUE É DESTA ÁREA!! NÃO CONSUMA COM MODERAÇÃO!! VIVA A SOCIEDADE ALTERNATIVA!!

One of the lesser lights of the late-'60s Bosstown Sound, Front Page Review recorded one unissued album in 1968 that was planned for release on MGM, but wouldn't surface until 30 years later. Guitarist and singer Steve Cataldo wrote all of the material for the group, which played minor-league, minor-keyed brooding psychedelia. Like many Boston groups, they were heavy on the weedy electric keyboards, and like most of the Bosstown acts, they didn't offer much in the way of imagination or idiosyncrasy to make them stand out from the psychedelic crowd. After Front Page Review broke up, Cataldo did a solo album for ABC, and then hitched onto the new wave by forming the Nervous Eaters, who made a couple of LPs. Front Page Review's album was finally unearthed for CD release in 1997.
Review by Richie Unterberger

Middling late-'60s psychedelia with some California influences from the likes of the Doors and the Jefferson Airplane. Steve Cataldo had a pretty dark lyrical view, with lyrics that alluded to nuclear war and dead children, but no one was about to confuse him with Jim Morrison. There are some hints of interesting ideas in the periodic unexpected tempo/melodic changes, but this is a pretty meager effort that won't find favor outside of certain hard-bitten psychedelic collectors.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Front Page Review was a Boston band fronted by Steve Cataldo, which got caught in the crossfire of the so-called "Bosstown Sound" movement of the late 60s. Although they were signed to MGM Records, this album produced by "Bosstown Sound" inventor Alan Lorber, never saw the light of day due to Lorber's other projects at the time, Orpheus and Ultimate Spinach. Upon the demise of Front Page Review, Cataldo was signed to ABC's Probe label and in 1969 under the guise of Saint Steven, released his "Over The Hills" album. He would surface again in the Seventies forming Nervous Eaters which performed in the Boston club circuit, and released a couple of lps.

Morning After - Blue Blood (1971 UK Rock Blues Progressive)


EXTREMA RARIDADE!! EXTREME RARITY!! NUMA COMPARAÇÃO MAIS RÁPIDA PODERIA SE DIZER QUE ESTA BANDA ERA UM FLEETWOOD MAC MAIS PROGRESSIVO!! DESTE VINIL SÓ FOI EDITADO 450 CÓPIAS EM VYNIL DE 180g E POR ISSO TRATA-SE DE UM ALBUM DE EXTREMA RARIDADE!! ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO AOS AMIGOS ENVENENADOS!!

LP 450 numbered / glossy heavy sleeve / engraved artwork / 180 gram pressing blues rock to progressive. Excellent heavy guitar riffs, wah and snotty vocals place this album straight in the British Underground. Limited to 450 copies on 180 gram vinyl.

From the UK, 1971. LP in an edition of 450 numbered copies, with glossy heavy & embossed sleeve, 180 gram pressing. "Here we have a completely unknown album from England from 1971. Morning After recorded this LP as a demo only to acquire a record deal (as so many bands did in the late '60s early '70s). So the album was pressed only in tiny amounts. The recording was with home studio equipment. Some of the tracks on the album sound like blues rock from the late Fleetwood Mac and some have a more progressive touch such as Shuttah.

Great & heavy guitar work, fuzz and wah-wah all over the album, snotty vocals, all own great compositions. The album title Blue Blood assumed a noble wealthy family and a member of the establishment, but the music and lyrics are just the opposite. The music on this album is pure British Underground, electrifying, pure and raw, no Sgt. Pepper sing along tunes. Just superb!"

TEM VERSÃO DE "WHITER SHADE OF PALE" DA BANDA GRASS ROOTS, TEM "EVIL WAYS" DO SANTANA, ESSA CERTAMENTE FICOU MELHOR QUE A ORIGINAL COM O ACRÉSCIMO DE UMA FUZZ GUITAR RASGANDO A FAIXA E UMA PITADA MAIS PSICODÉLICA QUE A ORIGINAL!! DEPOIS TEM "GET READY" DA BANDA RARE EARTH E AINDA "HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN" DA BANDA THE ANIMALS QUE TAMBÉM FICOU DUCARALHO!! !! BOM DISCO E LEGAL DE OUVIR MÚSICAS CONHECIDAS COM UMA ROUPAGEM MAIS PSICODÉLICA!! FRASCO DE VENENO COM INGREDIENTES CONHECIDOS DO MERCADO MAS COM A DOSAGEM E EFEITO POTENCIALIAZADO!!

Reissue of 1970 rarity originally issued in a private pressing of 500 copies. There's lots of Hammond, up-front fuzz guitar, a truly thunderous rhythm section, & howling vocals. Six tracks including the trio blasting through covers of 'Whiter Shade Of Pale', 'Evil Ways', 'Get Ready', & an unbelievable 'House Of The Rising Sun'.

"This is probably one of the of the oddest albums we've ever released. Smokin' Willie and his sidekicks Jim Sarvis and Ron Frye deliver a sound and a take on some hits of the day the likes of which you won't have heard before. The trio blasts its way through two original numbers and its own singular versions of 'Whiter Shade Of Pale', 'Evil Ways', 'Get Ready' and the most unbelievable 'House Of The Rising Sun' you're ever likely to hear. There's lots of Hammond, up-front fuzz guitar, a truly thunderous rhythm section and howling vocals and as times it is hard to imagine this much sound being produced by only three musicians. Originally released in 1970 on the Ulrich Studios label (Ulrich Studio 3999) as a private pressing, the biker trio's budget only ran to 500 copies most of which were eagerly snapped up by the good folks of southern Indiana where the band enjoyed considerable local support."

Culled from a series of early British Broadcasting Corporation television and radio appearances from 1963 to 1965, this collection of cover songs along with early hits like "The Last Time" and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" is superb all around. The album is also noteworthy for the brief interviews sprinkled throughout as the band contemplates the future and their success. Because these are radio recordings, the sound quality throughout is quite high given the technology available at the time. Highlights include "Cops and Robbers" and "Cry to Me."

Primevil - Smokin' Bats at Campton's (1974 Rare US Hardrock Bluesy)


ÓTIMA BANDA E ÓTIMO ALBUM QUE É CONSIDERADO UM BELO EXEMPLO DO HARD ROCK SETENTISTA!! HARD COM PITADAS BLUES E PSICODÉLICAS AO MELHOR ESTILO LED ZEPPELIN E BLACK SABBATH NOS BONS TEMPOS!! EXCELENTE VENENO COM UMA SONORIDADE QUE CORRESPONDA A UMA DIRETA NA VEIA!! ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!!

Originally a private and limited vinyl release in 1974, Smokin' Bats At Compton's stands as a fine example of '70s hard rock. The overall sound is bluesy hard rock, very much in the style of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, although in recent years they have also appealed to psychedelic collectors. Highlights include the opening track 'Leavin', 'Progress' and the now legendary 'Hey Lover'. 8 total tracks. Radioactive. 2006.

This is an example of seventies hard rock at its best with some superb twin lead guitar work from Larry Lucas and Jay Wilfong. Some dealers describe this as psychedelic. The band came from Indiana and the album was issued privately and had a limited vinyl reissue.
