Cut straight on the heels of Bad Company’s 1974 debut — just a matter of three months later; not quite long enough to know how big a success the first LP would be — Straight Shooter is seemingly cut from the same cloth as its predecessor.

Neil Young’s association with Crazy Horse could have ended after the death of Danny Whitten in 1972, but just three years later, Young recruited guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro into the band and cut Zuma. Many fans see it as the high-water mark of his long career with Crazy Horse; songs like “Cortez the Killer” have been a regular part of his setlist for years since. “I’ve got all these songs about Peru, the Aztecs and the Incas,” Young told Cameron Crowe in 1975. “Time travel stuff.

Essential: a masterpiece of Rock music
Who would have thought old Phil Mogg, Pete Way and Co. would be responsible for one the greatest psychedelic long players ever released?, but yes folks this record called “UFO 2/Flying” is a head trip of the highest order that every space rock freak MUST own!!!
UFO started out in 1968 and were at one time known as The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, they later called themselves Acid finally settling on UFO which was a tribute to the legendary UK nightclub. The group cut their teeth playing covers by people like The Yardbirds, Kinks, John Lennon and The Small Faces among others, somehow they got the attention of Equals guitarist Eddy Grant who was branching out into production and talent procurement, Grant invited the group to record at Orange Studios and the group managed to land a recording deal with the tiny Beacon imprint. A debut album “UFO 1” was issued in 1970 to little fanfare ( though it has been reported UK DJ Jon Peel thought highly of the group.)

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
I consider this album to be the most sentimental one from Steve Hackett, and it is also among his best ones. It has some similitudes with the previous one “Spectral mornings”, but I find the sound of “Defector” more mature, more refined. The “Steppes” track, in the beginning, is a bit long and repetitive, but the combination of the floating keyboards and the extremely sustained guitar notes at the end, like on the “Spectral Mornings” and “Every day” tracks, produces a very rich, powerful, intense and moving soundscape. Like the on “Spectral mornings” album, “Defector” contains some ordinary moments, like the “Please don’t touch-esque” “Time to get out” and the insipid “Slogans”. Fortunately, there are more good tracks than bad ones, and Hackett goes into sentimental moods here, like on the peaceful “Leaving”.

Label: Swan Song/SS 8410 | Released: 1974 | Genre: Classic-Rock


Originally considered a pet project of Led Zeppelin manager Peter Grant and his new label, Swan Song, it took no time for Bad Company to find their own niche in the rock pantheon. The very first album on the label, Bad Company, shot straight to the top of the album charts and has since eclipsed five times platinum, becoming one of the top fifty best selling albums of the seventies along the way. These accomplishments were due to the basic and raw approach to rock and roll, which really struck a chord with mainstream listeners. While hardly visionary, Bad Company‘s sound is distinct, with each of the four players given the space to reach the listener individually and collectively.

Essential: a masterpiece of Rock music
Having barely managed to coexist for even half a decade at the tail end of the post-Beatles rock explosion, there is little wonder that the delightfully obscure work of New York’s Sir Lord Baltimore is yet a question mark for the vast majority of heavy metal’s legions. But for those who have experienced both albums, that question mark most surely has been replaced by an exclamation point; the other bands of that era and hemisphere like Iron Butterfly, Blue Cheer, and Mountain barely hold a candle to the SLB’s raging wildfire take on rock ‘n’ roll extremity.

Having never made a completely satisfactory album, in part because many of their songs sound somewhat similar, this short but sweet 9-track “best-of” culls the most essential songs from the band’s first five studio albums and neatly sums up a damn good singles band.

I was lucky enough to find this compilation at a store years ago. Not sure how rare it is or not but its excellent. And was an excellent introduction to Hawkwind for me. I went on to buy several of their other albums because of this one.

This 3-piece in my mind blew ELP out of its own native waters! Rick Van Der Linden is a criminally underrated keyboard maestro with more than a few good ideas.

Soul is dead’, stated Embryo on it’s debut album in 1970. Yet fellow Germans Kin Ping Meh might have proved them wrong with their pleasant eclectic rock debut. The band has a well produced and professional sound that is actually very English. On their debut Kin Ping Meh plays a mix of styles, which makes it an interesting album to listen to for the seventies rock/psych fan. Double heavy rock guitars, perfect Hammond sound, soulful approach on some tracks and some winks towards symphonic and psychedelic rock. The artwork looks great on my vinyl reprint
