Crystal Image II - Rock And Roll (1974 US West Coast Hard Rock)



MOST HIGH RARITY!!
ALTÍSSIMA RARIDADE!!
REEDIÇÃO PRIVADA LANÇADA EM 1975 PELA GRAVADORA DERAM E DISPUTADO A TAPA POR COLECIONADORES!! É TAMBÉM CONHECIDO POR "THE RAINBOW ALBUM" E É EXTREMAMENTE DIFÍCIL DE ENCONTRAR!! A SONORIDADE É UM FUZZ MUITO LEGAL DIRECIONADA PARA UM HARD ROCK WEST COAST COM PITADAS PSICODÉLICAS, MAS COM TOQUES GROOVY!! GUITARRA BASE INTERESSANTE E VOCAIS MASCULINO E FEMININO!! DIGAMOS QUE ESTÁ MAIS NA VEIA DE UM JEFFERSON AIRPLANE UM POUCO MAIS PESADO E COM FANTÁSTICAS FUZZ WHA-WHA GUITARS!! ALGUMAS PARTES DO LP FORAM GRAVADAS AO VIVO EM TARCY, NA CALIFORNIA!! VENENO ALTISSIMAMENTE RARO E RECOMENDADO!!

Here is a nice find; the very rare original pressing of the second LP by CRYSTAL IMAGE, "Rock And Roll" (also known as "The Rainbow Album"), released in 1975 on the private Dream label and very hard to find. Some portions of this LP were recorded live at Tracy, California. A Lodi, California-based rural psych outfit whose LPs were released in quantities of just 500 or so, and much sought-after by collectors.  

Reissue of the very much sought after 2nd '74 album by West Coast USA band CRYSTAL IMAGE, know to the collectors world as 'The Rainbow Album', release privatly. 

Fantastic fuzz driven west coast psychedelia, but also very groovy almost funky sections. This CD contains all of the Rainbow Album + 5 bonus tracks taken from the 1st album.

Great 1975 hard rock album by this US band who started in the late '50's and flowered in the early '70's producing a powerful guitar based rock with biting lead breaks male/female vocal harmonies. The group performed with a huge lightshow and this mid '70's release captures the energy of the times.

They supported such bands as Quicksilver, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and many other, now legendary former local acts. Their music was in the vein of Jefferson Airplane, just sometimes even heavier with fantastic fuzz wah-wah guitars."
