STEEL RIVER - Weighin' Heavy (1970 Canadian Hard Rock)


APÓS 4 ANOS DE SHOWS AMADORES NOS ARREDORES DE TORONTO, STEEL RIVER COMEÇOU A TOCAR PROFISSIONALMENTE EM 1969 ASSINANDO COM A GRAVADORA "TUESDAY RECORDS" E JÁ NO ANO SEGUINTE GRAVOU ESSE SEU ALBUM DE ESTRÉIA!! GRAVOU MAIS UM ALBUM EM 1971!! A SONORIDADE É HARD ROCK COM ALGUMAS PITADAS PSYCH COM DESTAQUE PARA O ÓTIMO ORGAN HAMMOND QUE PASSEIA LEGAL!! NÃO É UM HARD PESADÃO E SIM COM UMA ORIENTAÇÃO MAIS COMERCIAL, MAS ISSO NÃO TIRA NEM UM POUCO A QUALIDADE SONORA DA BANDA, POIS AS MELHORES FAIXAS SÃO DE QUALIDADE!! É UM BOM VENENO QUE MERECE UMA AUDIÇÃO!!
 
After four years of amateur gigs and high-school dates around Toronto, Steel River began playing professionally in 1969 and signed with Tuesday Records the following year. From their 1970 debut album Weighin' Heavy, "Ten Pound Note" became a hit in Canada. Steel River broke up three years after 1971's A Better Road, but re-formed in 1980 to record the single "Armoured Car.
Straight ahead Canadian Rock album, with some Hard Rock and Psych moves and organ work, nothing special but still far better than their second album. Somewhat inconsistent, but the better tracks are surprisingly good.
