HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER

AL KOOPER ‘I STAND ALONE’ LP, 1968
“Al Kooper’s debut should really be heard by more people. This record was released by Columbia in 1968, sometime after Kooper had left the original Blood, Sweat and Tears. Casual listeners know Kooper as a mid-60’s Bob Dylan sideman, sometimes Mike Bloomfield/Shuggie Otis collaborator, respected record producer and keyboard player in the legendary underground New York City group, the Blues Project. Kooper left behind many fine solo records in the late 60’s and 70’s but I Stand Alone is something special, a disc that captures it’s place and time very well.

I Stand Alone is one of those records that’s inventive in a post Sgt. Pepper way, ambitious in its wide array of styles, experimental within a pop context and bound to confuse at least a few listeners. It’s amazing that Kooper’s solo work and the first Blood, Sweat and Tears record have never been reassessed for the great records they are. I Stand Alone is a strong listen all the way through, divided evenly between originals and well chosen covers. The disc opens with the title track, which was recorded in Nashville and is one of Kooper’s signature tunes (…) “. Source / All Rights Reserved:

EVERGREEN BLUES
” (…) Released as a single, “Midnight Confessions” received some airplay around the country, even becoming a hit record in Florida.  Ironically, shortly thereafter The Grass Roots recorded a virtually identical version of the song and it became a major hit record.  That was a heartbreaking experience for Evergreen Blues.  However, they got up, dusted themselves off, and did a second album with ABC Records called “Comin’ On.”  It included mostly original songs written by various band members.  It also had two more L.T. Josie songs and a cover of Otis Redding’s version of “Try a Little Tenderness.”  This was likely before Three Dog Night covered  it and had their first mega hit.  In fact, Evergreen Blues opened for Three Dog Night, who’s manager asked Evergreen Blues not to play “Try a Little Tenderness.”  They went ahead and played it anyway.  Good for them”.   Source / All Rights Reserved: http://rockasteria.blogspot.com/2019/04/evergreen-blues-comin-on-1969-us.html
