Head Over Heels - Head Over Heels (1971 US Hard Rock Blues)

POWER TRIO AMERICANO QUE FAZIA UM HARD ROCK COM PITADAS BLUES E PSICODÉLICAS DE TIRAR O FÔLEGO!! TEM ATÉ UMA VERSÃO PARA "RED ROOSTER" DO GRANDE MESTRE BLUESEIRO "WILIE DIXON" E QUE FICOU DUCARALHO!! MUITO BOM MESMO!! VENENASSO RECOMENDADO E UM SOM COM MUITA ENERGIA SETENTISTA!!

Showcasing a line up consisting of drummer John Bredeau, singer/guitarist Paul Frank and singer/bassist Michael Urso, the band only managed to release one instantly obscure album, but what an LP! Produced by Dan Moore and Buzz Clifford, 1971's "Head Over Heels" is simply great. Loud, tough, yet surprisingly accessible, material such as 'Road Runner' and 'In My Woman showcased the trio's knack for melodic, but crunching guitar rock. Frank and Urso had attractive voices and as we said before, they sure could generate some volume. Among the few missteps were some out of kilter harmony vocals ('Question') and the bland power ballad 'Children of the Mist' (which was almost redeemed by Frank's nice guitar solo). Elsewhere, recorded at Detroit's Eastowne, an extended cover of Willie Dixon's 'Red Rooster' and 'Circles' were live efforts that aptly showcased the band's impressive in-concert chops. Wish we'd seen 'em live ... Frank and Urso reappeared with the band Fresh Start. Urso was also a member of HUB and a late-inning member of Rare Earth.
