HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER
J.B. HUTTO: HAWK SQUAT
“It’s raw electric Chicago blues. It’s not polished. It’s not slick. It’s some people’s idea of what the electric blues ought to be. (…)the National Blues Foundation inducted Hawk Squat into its Hall of Fame for “Classic of Blues Recording: Album” (…). According to Dusty Groove.com, “Hutto’s a killer right from the start – singing and playing [slide] with a ferocity that easily matches, if not beats, the bigger ‘60s names on Chess Records….” Helping Hutto catapult to fame (…), are Lee Jackson on guitar, Sunnyland Slim on piano and organ, Junior Pettis, Dave Myers, and Herman Hassell on bass, Frank Kirkland on drums, and Maurice McIntyre on tenor sax”.

“In the space of months, the soundscape of rock shifted radically from short, danceable pop songs to comparatively longer works with more attention to technical and musical subtleties. Enter the unlikely all-star triumvirate of Al Kooper (piano/organ/ondioline/vocals/guitars), Mike Bloomfield (guitar), and Stephen Stills (guitar) — all of whom were concurrently “on hiatus” from their most recent engagements. Kooper had just split after masterminding the groundbreaking Child Is Father to the Man (1968) version of Blood, Sweat & Tears. Bloomfield was fresh from a stint with the likewise brass-driven Electric Flag, while Stills was late of Buffalo Springfield and still a few weeks away from a full-time commitment to David Crosby and Graham Nash. Although the trio never actually performed together, the long-player was notable for idiosyncratically featuring one side led by the team of Kooper/Bloomfield and the other by Kooper/Stills. The band is fleshed out with the powerful rhythm section of Harvey Brooks (bass) and Eddie Hoh (drums) as well as Barry Goldberg (electric piano) on “Albert’s Shuffle” and “Stop.”’.

IRON BUTTERFLY: IN-A-GADDA-DA-VIDA
“Iron Butterfly are a fluke in the music world. Their sound is one thing and another all at once. Basically, they’re psychedelic, with creepy classical Vox organ by Doug Ingle, Middle Eastern influenced guitar by Erik Brann, a nd tribal drums by Ron Bushy. But there’s also a hard edge to it, which explains why the album has been cited as a big influence on heavy metal. (…) For this album, he (D. Ingle) crafted love songs, and dreamy tales of exploration. “Mirage,” a tribute to a friend just passed, is one of the best. “Termination,” inspired by Greek myths, is by far the most colourful, though. All in all, not bad. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida was Iron Butterfly’s second album. Vocalist/organist Doug Ingle and drummer Ron Buhsy are joined by newcomers Lee Dorman and guitarist Erik Brann, the latter adding great depth to their sound. “Most Anything You Want” is a great fun opener, “Termination” is a psychedelic classic, and “Mirage” is just dreamy. But as we all know, the best song is the title track, that great 17-minute finale with wild solos and all kinds of metal-prophesying arrangements. It made them famous and remains one of the best moments of the late 1960s. This is Iron Butterfly’s most important album, and includes their most important song. It’s a gas.”
