RAINBOW - After The Storm (1968 US Hard Psych West Coast)


BANDA AMERICANA OBSCURA E QUE GRAVOU SOMENTE ESSE ALBUM!! EM ALGUMAS MUSICAS VOCÊS VÃO NOTAR ALGUMA SEMELHANÇA COM OS TECLADOS DA "IRON BUTTERFLY"!! A SONORIDADE GERAL É COMPOSTA POR VÁRIOS ESTILOS, MAS BASICAMENTE PODEMOS DESTACAR UM CLIMA WEST COAST PSYCH COM ALGUMA COISA DO HARD ROCK E GUITARRAS FUZZ!! VENENO RARÍSSIMO E QUE VALE A PENA CONHECER!!

A short-lived Los Angeles-based project. Their album has a great cover. The contents incorporate several different styles. All the music is written by W. David Mohr and much of it is heavy with lots of fuzz guitar reminiscent of Iron Butterfly. It ranges from heavy soul (I Just Want To Make Love To You); hippie pop (Leaf Clover); a sorta West Coast sound which seems in places distinctly similar to Fever Tree's San Francisco Girls; pretentious pop with lots of keyboards (Midnight Candle); gimmickry with lots of sound effects (Does Your Head Need Straightening?) to the very plesant After The Storm, which has some delighfful soothing piano.
