Spot - Spot (1971 Swiss Hard Blues Rock Prog Psych)



VENENO RARO E RECOMENDADO!!
RARE AND RECOMMENDED!!
BANDA SUIÇA MUITO LEGAL QUE MESCLA HARD ROCK COM INFLUÊNCIAS PROGRESSIVAS E PSICODÉLICAS!! GUITARRAS WHA WHA DISTORCIDAS, MOMENTOS ACUSTICOS E VOCAIS EM INGLÊS FAZEM DESSE ALBUM UM VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!!

An early seventies Swiss band that showcases heavy blues-rock in fusion with the psychedelic influences of other swiss bands like Krokodil or Country Lane. Some excellent guitar playing. 

Great copy of this stunning guitar prog LP by the Switzerland-based band! I have a press kit in my archive on this group which reveals that the singer was Greek, the bassist and drummer were both Swiss, and their incredible guitarist John Woolloff was British, so he may well be the John Wooloff that later played fusion with Patrick Moraz. The Spot LP is one of the rarest from the European underground scene for sure; it was pressed across the border in France under contract like the Splendid label stuff was (Pacific Sound, Aftershave, etc.), which makes it highly unlikely that it ever made it past an initial order of a few hundred copies for their local fan base. If you like heavy rock with searing distorted wah-wah guitar, this has it. If you like the juxtaposition provided by the short acoustic numbers on the Tractor LP, Spot does that as well. All the vocals are in English.
