More Detroit rock and roll. Dick Wagner led the Frost, and it's hard rock with maybe a slight RnB tinge. Dick as many of you know went on to play with Alice Cooper supplying tasty licks to some of Alice's post Cooper band LPs . This is Frost Music from 1969, originally released on Vanguard in the states.
This one I uploaded as a favor to a friend, and decided to include it here if anyone would like to check it out. In the late 60's Marshall Chess was trying to hop on trends, since his roster of 50's blues and RnB clients were considered passe and behind the times, he decided to pair them up with hip and happening new sounds (i.e: Chuck Berry with the Steve Miller band) and see if he couldn't score some action with it. This is Muddy's result. The gatefold LP's inner sleeve showing a picture of Muddy with a process hairdo and a long flowing robe says it all. He tried the same thing with Howlin' Wolf (the title was: Howlin' Wolf Does Not Like This Album.....) with mixed results. But Muddy's LP was actually pretty cool. He covers the Stones (logical choice bandwise since they were disciples of his, but song choice a bit iffy) and retooled some of his classics to "fit the times". A mixed bag, but one that is never boring.
Another LP from '69, this time some Canadian psych from the Rabble with their LP "Give Us Back Elaine"
And finally, some more mainstream rock, this being Brandywine's Aged LP from 1970. A few hard rock tunes intertwine with more mainstream rock sounds. Never bubblegummy or sappy, just nice AOR for the times and well worth checking out. I will admit I'd never heard this U.S. band until a couple weeks ago and was pleasently surprised.
Hopefully I get a few more up tonight. Been working way too much and finally got a couple days off.
