Part one of a two parter. This CD contains the first 2 Flash LPs. Flash was the band that splitered off of Yes after the first 2 albums and funnily enough, they sound more like the band Yes became after the split. Kinda funny, at least I thought it was. Anyway, cool album, the is Flash's first and if this one does good, I'll upload the 2nd (Out of Our Hands) tomorrow.
Some fans say this is a dated and weak album by Steppenwolf. I kinda dig it, especially the title track. And if you ever listen to later stuff like Slow Flux or Skullduggery, this becomes an instant classic (although there are things I like about those albums too, just not much). This was John Kay's (awkward) attempt at politics and if you just listen to the music you can forget all that. Politics schmalatics, I say, the whole world should just fire one up and jam on some groovy tunes.
Someone emailed and asked if I had anymore Atlantis (they can't get enuff of that Inga stuff) and here is my reply. The '73 album It's Getting Better. I don't know if that's true or not, but it's certainly not getting worse yet(that would happen later[anyone heard's Inga's late 70's disco?]) . Based on style and substance, I'd sat It's Just About the Same. And that's pretty damn good.
I have decided to separate my live/outtakes/unreleased stuff and start up another blog (oh boy) . I just started it and there are only 3 items there so far, but take a look if you like the live side of things. I won't tell you who I posted first, but I'll give a hint: ZAPSABRUND.
here's how to get there:
