Mourning

// November 21st, 2017 // 2 Comments » // Prog Rock

The 70’s were responsible for birthing not only Heavy Metal, but also a mountain of obscure Heavy Rock classics that all pretty much flew under the radar due to the lack of money to get these bands and records more well known. Bolder Damn from the U.S. is a prime example of how amazing a band can be, but yet virtually still unknown to a lot of people until now. Talk about HEAVY, this band was extremely heavy for the time of their debut release in 1971. They certainly challenged Black Sabbath in terms of heaviness. Their closing song ‘Dead Meat’ would be considered some of the heaviest/proto-doom riffs to be heard back then. ‘Dead Meat’ was an epic barnburner for the time. Even to this day that song is it still carries the same impact it did when it was originally released, much like the song ‘Black Sabbath’. For people that know more obscure greats like 70’s era Pentagram and Sir Lord Baltimore, this album fits right in with those. It’s a little more in the psych/fuzz heavy rock genre, but what’s not to love there? The album was re-mastered and the booklet contains a history of the band, lyrics, and old photos.

Borned With The Blues & Raised On Rock ‘N’ Roll

// November 19th, 2017 // 1 Comment » // Prog Rock

In 1980 this was an authentic surprise for all the American-Rock fans. A mixture of mixed blues, country, rockabilly and rock & roll roots, Wayne had a peculiar vocal and personal style. An album played with verve and passion, heavy with blues, rhythm & blues and rockabilly. This is a wonderful reissue of an ultra-rare album and a really stylish digipack set. Originally released in 1980. Featuring: Bugs Henderson and band, Smokin’ Joe Kubek, Jim Colegrove, the Juke Jumpers, Anson Funderburgh & the Rockets, Steve Doerr and Don Leady, aka Le Roi Brothers.

And Then… Along Comes The Association

// November 15th, 2017 // 2 Comments » // Prog Rock

The group’s debut album may be better listening today than it was in 1966, because it can be appreciated more — and it definitely deserves a better reputation than it has among folk-rock, psychedelic pop, and pop/rock enthusiasts. The album is usually neglected because of the Association’s reputation as a soft rock outfit and the prominence of the hits “Cherish” and “Along Comes Mary,” both of which are too poppy for most serious ’60s archeologists. The original LP was one or two songs short of uniformly high-quality material, but that defect was compensated for by the better numbers and the production of the late Curt Boettcher. Admittedly one of Boettcher’s softer creations, And Then…Along Comes the Association displayed the same creative use of stereo sound separation — the interlocking instrumental and vocal parts divided in discreet two-channel sound — that was to characterize his work with groups like the Millennium and Sagittarius a little later in the decade. Indeed, And Then…Along Comes the Association was among the earliest American rock albums to make full creative use of stereo sound and to exploit it on behalf of a group. In those days, the stereo mix on a rock album was usually little more than an afterthought by the producer and engineer (most of whom hated rock & roll), but Boettcher appreciated just what he had here, with the six singers and instrumentalists in this band, and he spread their work out in front of the listener in vivid detail, giving each “voice” (human and instrumental) a close airing, yet meshing them together as well. [The 1999 Japanese reissue CD extended the running time to almost 50 minutes with the addition of five extra tracks.] ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide
