HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER

JOHN MAYALL Empty Rooms (1969)
(…) If The Turning Point marked a partial shift away from the genre that had established Mayall’s reputation, Empty Rooms kicked off with a blast of the blues, ‘Don’t Waste My Time’. But this is a long way from his gritty mid-60s classic electric blues. It’s folk-blues, which mesmerized British kids at the dawn of the rock era. Broonzy, Lead Belly, Woody Guthrie all linger here – as does Lonnie Donegan, the man who took Skiffle into the British charts and inspired a generation.  (…)
Drum-free it may be, but there’s no lack of drive. ‘Plan Your Revolution’ rocks; ‘Something New’ has a handy lazy groove; ‘People Cling Together’ boasts the spirit of Wilbert Harrison’s ‘Let’s Work Together’, illuminated by 12-string guitar. As the album falls deeper into its romantic mindset, things change: ‘Don’t Pick A Flower’ is folk, pure and simple; ‘Many Miles Apart’ is a wailing blues, but clearly personal; ‘Waiting For The Right Time’ sounds like it was written watching desert dust blow by while Mayall admits “she drives me out of my mind” in a shimmering musical mirage.

THE LEFT BANKE
“Based in New York, The Left Banke  pioneered “baroque & roll” in the ’60s with a mix of pop/rock and grand, quasi-classical arrangements and melodies. Featuring teenage prodigy Michael Brown as keyboardist and chief songwriter, the group scored two quick hits with “Walk Away Renee” (number five) and “Pretty Ballerina” (number 15). Chamber-like string arrangements, the soaring, near-falsetto lead vocals of Steve Martin,  and tight harmonies that borrowed from British Invasion bands like The Beatles and The Zombies were also key elements of their sound. Though their two hits are their only well-remembered efforts, their debut album  “Walk Away Renée / Pretty Ballerina) was a strong, near-classic work that matched the quality of their hit singles in song-writing and production (…) .
