REPOST: BIG BROTHER & Ernie Joseph – CONFUSION (1970 US Hard Rock Psych)


ALBUM RARO!!! RARE ALBUM!!NÃO CONFUNDAM ESTA BANDA COM  A BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY, EX-BANDA DA JANIS JOPLIN!! ESTA É OUTRA MENOS POPULAR E FORMADA POR ERNIE JOSEPH, EX-VOCALISTA E GUITARRISTA DA BANDA "GIANT CRAB"!! DISCO RARO E VENENO DO BOM QUE MISTURAVA HARD ROCK COM INFLUÊNCIAS PSICODÉLICAS!! VENENO RARO E RECOMENDADO!!

Ranging from fuzzed out psychedelic influenced hard rock, to straight blues rock, this album covers a few musical spectrums, but doesn't have enough stand out tracks. The vocals sound forced, and the recorded quality isn't anything spectacular.
 
A Californian band (commune/family) who recorded their first album in Hollywood. Produced by Bill Holmes, the album is patchy. Its best tracks are the hard-rocking ESP and the dreamy Wake Me Up In The Morning. The album also includes an interesting long version of Saint James Infirmary. Before Big Brother, Ernie Joseph was known as Ernie Orosco and formed several Santa Barbara outfits including Ernie and The Emperors, Ernie's Funnys and Giant Crab.
 
Big Brother Feat. Ernie Joseph - Confusion
Influenced by the guitar sounds of Hendrix, Cream and Jeff Beck, The Bill Holmes produced Confusion is an incendiary classic of British blues style guitar rock. The band, not to be confused with the similarly named and of course more popular Big Brother and the Holding Company made a name for themselves as a great live performance, often encouraging audience participation. Their on stage energy comes across well on the record, resulting in a loose charismatic album that only slows down long enough to sing a serenade on "Wake Me In The Morning." The rest blisters through with searing guitar virtuosity from Ernie Joseph and an organ sound that shows no signs of prog's impending overindulgence. A rock record from start to finish.
