Haboob - Haboob (1971 German Psych Jazz Rock Blues)

RARIDADE MÁXIMA!! HIGH RARITY!! VENENO QUE NÃO SE ENCONTRA NO MERCADO!! POISON THAT IS NOT FOUND EASILY!!

CARAMBA!! ESTA BANDA É DIFÍCIL DE COLOCAR UM RÓTULO!! OS CARAS ERAM MUITO LOUCOS E FIZERAM SOMENTE ESTE ALBUM QUE VIROU PEÇA DE COLECIONADOR!! VOU TENTAR ROTULAR ESTE DISCO COMO UMA MESCLA ENTRE JAZZ-ROCK, PSICODELIA, SOUL, BLUES.......!! SÓ PRA TER UMA NOÇÃO UM DOS MEMBROS ERA "JIMMY JACKSON" QUE JÁ HAVIA INTEGRADO AS BANDAS "AMON DUUL" E "EMBRYO"!! ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO PELA RARIDADE E PELA SONORIDADE!!

This German release is a mixture of jazz-rock, soul, blues, psychedelia, really difficult to pin down. Plus it's not really a German band, the players are Americans or maybe Brits living in Munich. Star of the show is American keyboardist Jimmy Jackson, better known for his appearances on the classic early Amon Düül II albums, and albums by Embryo and Klaus Doldinger's Passport. Jackson plays something called a "Choir Organ", which seems to have been a one of a kind instrument that only he played. Best cut, for me, is the first track "Israfil" a nine minute long affair which probably wouldn't have seemed too out of place one one of the first three Amon Düül II albums. Weirdness prevails throughout the rest of the album, there's bluesy psychedelia, keyboard freak-outs, percussion extravaganzas and an unusual version of "Soldier Boy" by the Shirelles! (Vinyl Rip)

This musical collective was born in Munich (Germany) back to the early 70's. It features Jimmy Jackson (Amon Duul II, Embryo) on extended choir organ and George Green (drums, percussion, vocals), William D. Powell (guitar, vocals). This is a freaky and proto progressive rock band including bluesy riffs, psych buzzing strings and soulful rocking improvised sessions. They published their unique album "Haboob" in 1971.

Behind this mysterious name (which means 'desert winds') was none other than the black American organist Jimi Jackson, best known for his distinctive choir organ on albums by Amon Duul II, Embryo and Doldinger's Passport. After a project with Lothar Meid in 1970 named Tambarin lead to nothing, Jackson formed Haboob in 1971. Their album was recorded at Bavaria Studios, Munich, with Olaf Kubler (producer) and Peter Kramper (engineer). It looked like a lost Amon Duul album with its psychedelic sleeve, designed by Folk-U. Rogner. Tracks like "Israfil" sounded like them too, with a dense atmosphere of gurgling, manipulated vocals and keyboards. There were also a couple of blues , soul and jazz-rock numbers.

1. Israfil (9:42)
2. Blues For Willy Pee (3:51)
3. Sooloo (5:07)
4. Morning Prayer (5:07)
