BUZZSAW - From Lemon Drops To Acid Rock (1969-71 US Acid Rock Psych)



VENENO RARÍSSIMO E ACIDO!! A BANDA LEMON DROPS FOI UMA TÍPICA BANDA DE GARAGEM DE CHICAGO E QUANDO A BANDA SE SEPAROU EM 1969 TRÊS DE SEUS MEMBROS CONTINUARAM A SAGA COM O NOME DE BUZZSAW!! JUNTAMENTE COM O NOME A SONORIDADE TAMBÉM SOFREU ALTERAÇÕES PARA UM ROCK ACIDO, PSICODÉLICO E POR CERTAS VEZES PESADO, INTENSO E POR VEZES CALMO QUE NEM O SOPRO DO VENTO!! 

From Chicago, Buzzsaw were a short-lived acid rock trio who were formed in 1970. Eddie and Gary Weiss had earlier been in the reknowned The Lemon Drops, and Watermelon, and in fact Buzzsaw are best known for a version of The Lemon Drops' classic I Live In The Springtime. The liner notes to Collectables Chicago Garage Band Greats - The Best Of Rembrandt Records 1966-1968 reveal that this was in fact the same recording as the earlier The Lemon Drops, but in a previously unreleased stereo mix. 

Between 1966-1968 the Lemon Drops were a typical three-chord garage band from Chicago. When the Lemon Drops broke up in 1969, three former members became Buzzsaw and began dipping into the heavy rock of power trios like the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, and especially Blue Cheer. Buzzsaw's sound caught between their garage band roots and their burgeoning acid rock influence, not doing either form justice. Cuts emphasizing cosmic enlightenment like "Saturn Jam" and "Saturn Is Just a Few Days Away" have nothing in common with the truly cosmic themes composed by Sun Ra. This is mainly for acid rock collectors and archivists. ~ Al Campbell
