VENENO RARO DESSE ÓTIMO POWER TRIO TEXANO!! O DISCO É UMA REEDIÇÃO OFICIAL A PARTIR DAS "MASTER TAPES" E GRAVADO NO TEXAS, NO ESTUDIO SONBEAT, O MESMO EM QUE A BANDA MARIANI GRAVOU SEU ALBUM!! A SONORIDADE É UM HARD ROCK PSICODÉLICO COM UM CLIMA WEST COAST MUITO RECOMENDADO!!
"O proprietário da Sonobeat, Bill Josey, que produziu e projetou este álbum demo diz que, como todos os demos da Sonobeat, ele foi lançado em um revestimento branco, liso e com números escritos à mão em etiquetas brancas. Além das poucas cópias entregues em Austin, a demo foi vendida no Sound Spectrum, uma loja de discos no sul da Califórnia que na ocasião era propriedade de Jimmy Otto. Wildfire deu apenas 100 álbuns para a loja, e eles se esgotaram em dois dias. A loja pedia mais, e som Spectrum recebeu um adicional de 100 álbuns. Eles foram vendidos em questão de horas, estabelecendo um recorde de todos os tempos na loja."
Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
From the opening echoed growl of the guitar intro to Stars In The Sky through the ten minute plus jam in Quicksand at the end of side two, this record sits toward the top of the pile of lost-in-time U.S. West Coast psychedelic hard rock privately pressed albums.
It was originally issued in a plain sleeve with a sticker on the front. Only four or five copies of the original issue, which was made for demo purposes, are known to exist. Thankfully a good quality reissue is now available so all fans of the genre can check it out. A legit CD reissue from Gear Fab is also being put together... Recommended!
The 1970 Demo Album:
When Wildfire determined it was time to cut a demo album, they began in California at the Beach Boys’ studio, putting down the bass and guitar tracks. Wildfire guitarist Randy Love is Beach Boy Mike Love’s cousin. A Texas promoter convinced the band that Texas was the place they wanted to be and the place they wanted to record, and the boys returned to Austin, eventually ending up at Sonobeat’s Western Hills Drive studio toward the end of the year. There they cut a demo of original music, 8 power-packed songs of timeless rock and roll. Sonobeat owner Bill Josey, Sr. produced and engineered this demo album which, like all of Sonobeat’s classic demos, was released in a plain white jacket with hand-written numbers on white stickers.
In addition to the few copies given out in Austin, the demo was sold at Sound Spectrum, a record store in Southern California owned by Jimmy Otto at the time. Wildfire gave only 100 albums to the store, and they were sold out in 2 days. The store begged fore more, and Sound Spectrum was given an additional 100 albums. They were sold out in a matter of hours, setting an all-time record albums at the store, per Jimmy Otto. The authorized demo album has a white cover with an adhesive label. The label on the vinyl reads “Primo” and was drawn by Randy Love. Autumn Leaves and BMI were on the label.
