Coloured Balls - Ball Power (1973 Australian Hard Blues "Punk" Rock)


VENENO AUSTRALIANO MUITO LEGAL E FORMADO POR LOBBY LOYDE UM VETERANO ROQUEIRO DA CENA MUSICAL LOCAL!! O CARA JÁ HAVIA TRABALHADO EM BANDAS LENDÁRIAS DO RYTHM BLUES AUSTRALIANO COMO PURPLE HEARTS, WILD CHERRY E BILLY TORPE & THE AZTECS!! NESSA PEREGRINAÇÃO MUSICAL ESTABELECEU UMA REPUTAÇÃO COMO MESTRE DA GUITARRA!! ESSE DISCO POWER BALL FOI UM MOMENTO DECISIVO NA HISTÓRIA DA MUSICA AUSTRALIANA E CONSIDERADO UM DOS MAIORES ALBUNS DE HARD ROCK SETENTISTA MANTENDO QUALIDADE EM PRATICAMENTE TODO O ALBUM!! A SONORIDADE É UM HARD ROCK ACIDO, MEIO PUNK, COM PITADAS BLUES E COM MUITA ENERGIA!! VENENO RECOMENDADO!!

By the time Lobby Loyde formed the Coloured Balls in March 1972, he was already a 12-year veteran of the local music scene. Working his way through R&B legends The Purple Hearts, psychedelic heroes The Wild Cherries and onto the bluesy Aztecs, Loyde had well and truly established his reputation as Australia ’s pre-eminent guitar master.

The overall excellence of 'Ball Power' makes for quality listening all the way through. The songs range from the crunching, melodic hard rock of 'Flash' and 'Hey! What's Your Name' to the simple, raw rock'n'roll of 'Mama Don't Get Me Wrong' and 'Won't You Make Up Your Mind' (a proto-typical punk ball-tearer at a breathtakingly brief one minute and 32 seconds) and a raucous cover of the Jerry Lee Lewis standard 'Whole Lotta Shakin''. In between there are the sleazy blues of 'Something New' and 'B.P.R.' plus progressive, guitar-heavy monsters like 'Human Being' and 'That's What Mama Said'.
