Mama Lion - Preserve Wildlife (1972, us Brilliant hard/blues-rock featuring Lynn Carey - Flac)
Bem, eu acho que está na hora de colocar uma "mina" na parada! (he, he,...)
Além de maravilhosa visualmente falando, ela cantava divinamente; desfrutem!
Mama Lion was a blues/rock quintet formed in the early seventies.
Produced by Neil Merryweather, Mama Lion was a group destined to show off the Joplinesque voice of Lynn Carey, a sculptural blonde beauty previously in Ivar Avenue Reunion.
As often with the Merryweather outputs, the music is a rather loose mix of blues and rock.
Most of the songs were written as a collaboration between Merryweather and Carey, with a few covers thrown in for good.
Not all the songs are “radio friendly” if you know what I mean. But sexual inuendo apart, there’s still something in the music and singing.
Gaxiola is a great guitar player and you can tell that Jim Howard was classically trained by listening to the piano-intro on “Mr. Invitation”.
Lynn Carey has often been compared with Janis Joplin, but her vocal style could just as easily be compared to Kathi McDonald.
She sings with a lower pitch and a voice that sometimes resembles those of old-time blues singers. Lynn Carey was one of the most powerful woman singers in rock history as well.
But Lynn Carey’s career doesn’t start with singing in front of a band in the 70’s. Her career goes way back to her early teens, acting for various TV shows and movies before joining up and recording with various bands.
Their records are now mostly remembered for their sleeves, especially the first with Lynn Carey breastfeeding a lion cub.
