HOUSTON' S NATURAL GASS - Jess Lankford & C.L. Weldon (Usa Psych Funk Blues '75)

Texas rock and roll fuzz guitar mayhem recorded in the early 70s and released on this tax scam label (Crazy Cajun) in 1978. Along with Mandrake, this is one of the best and heaviest on the label.
( rockadrome)
 Very rare record from the Texas hard rock/psych band Houston's Natural Gass. Was actually recorded in '70 but wasn't released until '78 as a tax write off. Killer hard rock with fuzz and gritty vocals. Has 10 tracks. How many sealed copies are left? Not many i'm sure. Considered one of the best hard rock records out of Texas.(collector frenzy)
LISTEN THE WAH WAH ,

The album was released by Invictus Records in 1971 and was produced and arranged by Ruth Copeland, though it is widely believed that the actual producer of the album was her then husband Jeffrey Bowen.

SURVIVOR - All Your Pretty Moves (USA HARD ROCK '79)


Not the ‘Eye of the Tiger’ bunch, but a much better than average early heavy metal group from Shreveport, Louisiana . The vocalist is a slightly less forceful Rob Halford sound-alike, and the songwriting is up to the “Sad Wings of Destiny” standard of sophisticated hard rock.

DENNY KING - EVIL WIND IS BLOWING (USA BLUES ROCK '72)

 

Dennis Gordon Ottenbacher, said Denny King.

Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1942.

He died in Lancaster, California, in April 2000.

Active between 1965 and 1972.

Genre: blues - rock.

Label: Specialty.


Include essentially Denny King known to finally somewhat, otherwise it comes from Wisconsin where he founded the Darnells, he practised in the blues-rock and that it is essentially noted California Lancaster onstage there even where Zappa and Captain Beefheart have evolved at the same time.

The similarity with Van Vliet, Captain in question, wrong person. Denny King is a fan up to punctuate his grunts vocals that would not denied heart of beef. More importantly, the Milwaukee native pushes the CAP up to hire for his unique project, Evil Wind Is Blowing, the guitarist Alex St. Clair, then out of Magic Band, and her guitarist-harmonica player Doug Moon.

After this experience, Denny King settled in the region of Sacramento where he tries to help young musicians before importing medical supplies from Korea and tinker in various other cases. Died in April 2000, Evil Wind Is Blowing is the only legacy have left us. Appreciate it rightly

NICK GRAVENITES - MY LABORS (USA BLUES ROCK '69)

 
Nicholas George Gravenites (/ɡrævɨˈntɨs/; born October 2, 1938, Chicago, Illinois), with stage names like Nick "The Greek" Gravenites and Gravy, is a blues, rock and folk singersongwriter, and is best known for his work with Janis Joplin, Mike Bloomfield and several influential bands and names of the generation springing from the 1960s and '70s.[1] He currently resides in Occidental, California.

Career[edit]

According to author and pop music critic Joel Selvin, Gravenites is "the original San Francisco connection for the Chicago crowd." Gravenites is credited as a "musical handyman" helping such San Francisco bands as Quicksilver Messenger Service and Janis Joplin's first solo group, the Kosmic Blues Band. Nick wrote various songs for Joplin, including her Woodstock hit "Work Me, Lord" and the unfinished instrumental track "Buried Alive In The Blues". Gravenites also worked extensively with John Cipollina after producing the first Quicksilver Messenger Service album. He and Cipollina formed the Nick Gravenites–John Cipollina Band which toured a lot in Europe.
When the band Big Brother and the Holding Company reformed from 1969 to 1972 (without Janis Joplin), Nick was the lead singer.
Gravenites was also a songwriter for the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, which consisted of Elvin Bishop, Paul Butterfield, Sam Lay and Michael Bloomfield. In 1967 he formed The Electric Flag with Bloomfield. Gravenites is also responsible for writing the score for The Trip, produced the music for the movie Steelyard Blues. He produced the pop hit "One Toke Over the Line" for Brewer & Shipley and the album Right Place, Wrong Time for Otis Rush, for which he was nominated for a Grammy Award. Together with John Kahn, Gravenites produced the album 'Not mellowed with Age' by Southern Comfort (CBS S 64125 - 1970). Over the years, Gravenites would often use pianist Pete Sears in his band "Animal Mind", including on his 1980 Blue Star album on which Sears played keyboards and bass.

Lucille Has Messed My Mind Up is a 1970 album by Jeff Simmons, produced by Frank Zappa under the pseudonym La Marr Bruister.
Description
Jeff Simmons' vocal rendition of the title track is anguished; the wonderful thing about Zappa's guitar lead, and the pseudonym could only fool a deaf person, was the attack of the sound, like ripping paper. There was no question about what Lucille was doing to their minds; you fell in love with Lucille.
Its title track was later rerecorded as part of Zappa's 1979 album, Joe's Garage. Another track, "Wonderful Wino," was rerecorded and released on Zappa's Zoot Allures album.
Lucille Has Messed My Mind Up was described as the second best album on the Straight Records label by Mojo Magazine. In 2007, it was re-issued on CD by World In Sound Records.
