Rock On! Wednesday, 28 April – Lucifer’s Friend (Lucifer’s Friend, Atomic Rooster, Babe Ruth, Birth Control, Bakerloo)
Psychedelic, heavy, prog and more innovating sounds spanning the late 60s and the early 70s – Wednesday December 23rd. Dan’s pick of the week: Lucifer’s Friend (Lucifer’s Friend), Atomic Rooster (Made In England), Birth Control (Hoodoo Man), Babe Ruth (First Base) & Bakerloo (Bakerloo).
Lucifer’s Friend is het eerste studioalbum van de Duitse rockband Lucifer’s Friend en werd uitgebracht in 1970. Lucifer’s Friend zou meerdere keren van richting veranderen op de volgende albums. De progressieve en door krautrock beïnvloede proto-doom metal op het eerste album doet echter niet onder voor de sinistere platenhoes…
Prog Archives review: “This debut album by Germany rock band really rocks! If you wanna hear something that’s truly classic rock, this one is definitely in. The combination of high octave voice of John Lawton and dynamic, solid and inventive bass lines of Dieter Horns, stunning electric guitar of Peter Hesslein is really hard to compare with other bands. Their music is a blend of classic rock with blues music influence, energetic beat and uplifting mood. Be prepared with the hard driving rhythm section even though it’s not as heavy (or as fast) as power metal music that was invented later.
It’s highly recommended album, especially if you want to hear the true sound of seventies. Yeah, you will find that even the sonic quality of this album truly represents the seventies quality. Keep on proggin’!”
