Rock On! Wednesday, 28 October Sea Shanties (High Tide, Irish Coffee, Uriel, Pink Fairies, Black Widow)
Psychedelic, heavy, prog and more innovating sounds spanning the late 60s and the early 70s – Wednesday October 28th. Dan’s pick of the week: High Tide (Sea Shanties), Irish Coffee (Irish Coffee, Uriel (Arzachel), Pink Fairies (Never Neverland) & Black Widow (Black Widow).
Prog Archives review:”When I first listened to this album I couldn’t believe it was from 1969; it is way ahead of the time. Definitely the heaviest album of that aera. Its trademark is the constant battling between electric guitar and electric violin.
The album starts right away with a heavy electric guitar riff out of one of the boxes, a pumping bass and drums enter, the guitar riff is answered with heavy electric violin out of the other box, and then “Futilist’s Lament” is on the way. The vocals of Tony Hill sound a bit like Jim Morrison; the lyrics throughout the whole album are rather pessimistic. (…)
The mix is not the best, but who cares? The music is fantastic! I rarely deal out 5 stars, but this one deserves it. Be warned though: This album is not for the timid!”
