Gass - Juju (1970 UK Blues Prog feat. Peter Green)

EXCELENTE E RARÍSSIMO ALBUM DA BANDA GASS FORMADA EM LONDRES NO ANO DE 1965!! OS CARAS FAZIAM UMA MESCLA DE SOUL, JAZZ, PROG ROCK E BLUES COM MAESTRIA!! O ALBUM CONTA COM A PARTICIPAÇÃO DE "PETER GREEN" GUITARRISTA DO FLEETWOOD MAC E DE OUTROS FERAS DA MUSICA SETENTISTA!! VENENO DE EXTREMA RARIDADE E SEM CONTRA-INDICAÇÕES!!

Gass were formed in 1965 in London with two guys from Trinidad and British Guiana involved. Thus resulted a unique blend of soul, Latin jazz, progressive rock, blues and Beatlesque melodies provided with complex time signature changes. Peter Green, having just left Fleetwood Mac, plays guitar on two songs. Gass' regular guitarist Bob Tench later appeared on albums by Jeff Beck, Van Morrison, Roger Chapman and many more.

Stylistically, it was perhaps closest to what the likes of Ginger Baker's Airforce, Pete Brown & Piblokto! and Graham Bond were doing at the time, and definitely paved the way for further groups in the same vein in the coming years, such as Hanson (founded by Junior Kerr aka Junior Hanson, ex-Keef Hartley Band, to join Bob Marley & The Wailers) and Hummingbird. Priceless.
