Sammy - Sammy (1972 UK Hard Rock Prog)

SAMMY ERA UM SUPERGRUPO, AO MENOS NO QUE DIZ RESPEITO AOS SEUS COMPONENTES, QUE ERAM EX-MEMBROS DAS BANDAS "AUDIENCE", "QUATERMASS", "THE HERD", "SILVERHEAD", "EPISODE SIX" E "GINHOUSE"!! ALÉM DISSO O ALBUM FOI PRODUZIDO POR "IAN GILLAN" DO DEEP PURPLE!! ALTO PEDIGREE PORTANTO!! LANÇARAM ESSE SEU UNICO ALBUM EM 1972 DE POUCA OU QUASE NENHUMA REPERCUSSÃO, EMBORA TENHA EXCURSIONADO MUITO POR DOIS ANOS!! O SOM DOS CARAS ERA UM HARD ROCK PROGRESSIVO COM ADIÇÃO DE SAX E FLAUTAS O QUE DEIXA O SOM COM PITADAS DE JAZZ E BLUESROCK!! TEM UM POUCO DE AUDIENCE, DEEP PURPLE, MAS O MELHOR MESMO É IMAGINAR O SOM DA BANDA URIAH HEEP ACRESCIDO DE SAXOFONE E VOCÊ TERÁ UMA IDÉIA DO QUE ERA O SOM DOS CARAS!! CERTAMENTE PELO TIME DE ESTRELAS ERA DE SE ESPERAR MAIS, MAS TRATA-SE SIM DE UM BOM DISCO!!
Co-produced by Louie Austin and Deep Purple's Jon Lord, 1972's "Sammy" offered up a competent, if slightly worn set of mid-1970s hard rock. Sammy were a short lived supergroup featuring ex-members of Audience, Quatermass, The Herd, Silverhead, Episode Six and Ginhouse. Sporting a brass driven hard rock sound, the band released their sole album in 1972 to an apathetic record buying public. Though the band toured relentlessly for two years, their efforts were not met with success and the band folded by the end of 1974. In retrospect, this was a stellar effort despite the two pointless prog interludes that are featured here. At times the band sounded a bit like Audience and there were elements of Deep Purple scattered throughout. This isn't a surprise, considering the album was produced by Ian Gillan. In fact, drummer Mick Underwood would later join Gillan's solo project for a number of years. He would also form Strapps and a revamped Quatermass in the 90's.
