BY REQUEST: CWT - The Hundredweight (1973 German Hard Rock Prog)


POWER TRIO "INGLÊS" DE HARD ROCK COM PITADAS PROGRESSIVAS!! ERAM INGLESES MAS RESIDIAM NA ALEMANHA!! A BANDA TINHA UM MUSICO CONVIDADO CHAMADO "CY PAYNE" QUE ERA RESPONSÁVEL POR UM ARRANJO "BRASS", OU SEJA, INCLUSÃO DE SOPROS, E ISSO ERA O DIFERENCIAL DOS CARAS, POIS APESAR DE SEREM UMA BANDA DE HARD ROCK, ISSO DAVA AO SOM DA BANDA UM TOQUE SUTIL DE SOUL DA MOTOWN, UM GROOVE MAIS PESADO EU DIRIA!! APENAS 750 LPs FORAM DISTRIBUÍDOS ORIGINALMENTE E APENAS O CD DE RELANÇAMENTO AINDA SE PODE ENCONTRAR, APESAR QUE MESMO ESSE CD SEJA EXTREMAMENTE RARO!!

Reissue of 1973 heavy krautrock album played by English musicians, notable for their rip snortin use of brass elements to great effect.

Released on KUCKUCK in 1973.The only album from this English Heavyrock trio.CWT was one of the heaviest acts on KUCKUCK, which was also the home for bands like OUT OF FOCUS ,ARMAGEDDON(the German band) or MURPHY BLEND, but the label become famous for the records of IHRE KINDER . CWT have a guest musician named Cy Payne on this album, who is responsible for the Brass arrangements. It´s giving CWT a very special sound .

Beside the fantastic guitar and vocal work of Graham Jones ,the brass section gives their Heavyroch a Motown Soul touch, a real heavy groove.It makes "The Hundredweight" to an interesting album with some faster and softer points. But tracks like "Steam Roller" are devastating, filled with hardest riffing and rough vocals.I would compare CWT with bands like SIR LORD BALTIMORE or CACTUS ,they had the same class and they put their piece to basic HeavyBluesrock.There exists a re-release on KUCKUCK,limited to 750 LP´s and you can get a CD re-release, because the original is not easy to find.
