THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN – 1968

the crazy world of arthur brown

This album was released in 1968 and was a major hit in the UK and US. The first side is a suite of songs that are concerned with the general theme of ‘fire'; they are totally unique and portray Arthur’s incredible voice at its very best.

Frijid Pink “End of the Line” / 1970

frijid-pink-end of the line

The crunchy, pumping rocker “End of the Line,” where Green, Thompson, and company move into Led Zeppelin territory very effectively (you can just imagine them switching gear into “Black Dog” in a jam to this song on-stage), with a killer performance by Rich Stevers on the drums.

The Choir – It’s Cold Outside / 1967

The Choir it's cold outside

This classic song was written by original band member Denny Klawson (real name Dann Klawon) originally getting a release on Canadian-American in late ’66. By the time Roulette Records picked up ‘It’s Cold Outside’ for national release Denny Klawson had left the band.

Johnny Burnette and the Rock’N’Roll Trio / 1956

johnny burnette and the rock 'n roll trio honey hush

Highly recommended. Recorded during two sessions in 1956, just months after Elvis’ debut RCA release, Johnny Burnette’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Trio recordings are electrifying.

Jefferson Airplane – Crown Of Creation / 1968

Released in the Fall of 1968, Crown of Creation found the ever-evolving Airplane moving towards a heavier, more concise approach on such tunes as “Greasy Heart,” “In Time,” “If You Feel” and the soaring title number.

Lady in black – Uriah Heep / 1971

On their second album, Salisbury. “Lady in Black,” a stylishly arranged tune that builds from a folk-styled acoustic tune into a throbbing rocker full of ghostly harmonies and crunching guitar riffs.

A Classic Education – Call It Blazing / 2011

A Classic Education’s debut Call It Blazing could be lazily labelled as providing a fair serving of the former with a tragic lack of the latter
