GALADRIEL – Galadriel (1971 Australian Blues Rock Prog)


BANDA AUSTRALIANA QUE FAZIA UM BLUES COM ELEMENTOS PROGRESSIVOS E FOLK!! TEM FLAUTAS SOANDO AO ESTILO JETHRO TULL!! ALGUNS ELEMENTOS DE JAZZ E HARD ROCK!! ÓTIMO DISCO E ÓTIMA BANDA!! VENENO RECOMENDADO!!

Australian band Galadriel put out an unmemorable self-titled album in 1971 of original material in blues-rock, roots rock, soft folk-rock, and progressive rock styles. Although they did work on a second album, it never came out, and they broke up in 1972.

Galadriel's sole album is pretty derivative early-'70s rock with vague progressive leanings. Collectors who have inundated themselves with releases by second- and lower-division bands in the hopes of discovering something new and exciting will likely have their hearts sink when the ho-hum boogie cock rock of the opening track, "Amble On," kicks in. Not everything on the record sinks to that level, but some of it does, like the grim bluesy rock of "Girl of Seventeen." And if much of the rest isn't as objectionable, it's certainly often derivative. "She Left Her Lover at Home" uses flute in the manner of early Jethro Tull, "Working" too closely resembles the older blues-folk number "Neighbor Neighbor," and "Lady Was a Thief" certainly seems motivated by early Band songs like "The Weight." Their folkiest tunes are the best, with "Mind Games"'s squeaky harmonica bearing a casual likeness to some early Country Joe & the Fish.
