SHORT CROSS - Arising (1972 US Heavy Psych Blues)



REPOSTAGEM DESSA BOA BANDA AMERICANA E SEU ALBUM RARO QUE MUSICALMENTE PODE SER DEFINIDO COMO HARD BLUES PSICODÉLICO OU ATÉ MESMO UMA SEMELHANÇA COM BOOGIE ROCK!! NA AUDIÇÃO NOTA-SE QUE HÁ UM BOM TRABALHO DE GUITARRA E QUE TODOS SEUS INTEGRANTES SÃO MUSICOS DE QUALIDADE CONSIDERANDO QUE, NA ÉPOCA DA GRAVAÇÃO DO ALBUM, NENHUM DOS COMPONENTES TINHA MAIS DE 18 ANOS!! A GRAVAÇÃO TEVE UM BAIXO ORÇAMENTO E EDIÇÃO LIMITADA!! TRATA-SE DE UM BOM VENENO!!

Reissue of wonderful early 70s hard rock bluesy private press record with lengthy jamming guitars and great vibe. From Sandston, Virginia, this band evolved out of the Hustlers, whose members included, at various stages, ex-Reactors Steve Hicks and ex-Outlaws Butch Owens alongside core members Velpo Robertson, Gray McCalley and Ben Luck. The latter left to join the Barracudas, of "A Plane View" LP fame. Their rare album can best be described as heavy psychedelic blues, at its purest on "Suicide Blues". There's plenty of good guitar work throughout, "Wastin' Time", "Just Don't Care", "Till We Reach The Sun" and "Hobo Love Song" all have their share, whilst "Ellen" is a slow bluesy ballad. The album lacks sufficient originality to make it special but if this musical genre is where you're at you shouldn't be disappointed.
