Head Over Heels - Head Over Heels (1971, us superb hard blues-rock, 2002 Akarma reissue) Flac

Saudações a todos, e então comecemos o ano novo com um fantástico álbum de hard rock. Esse é um desbundante power trio americano e eu não sei porquê cargas d'águas ele têm duas músicas gravadas ao vivo nesse álbum, mas isso não faz diferença pois elas são matadoras tanto quanto o restante do álbum! Desfrutem!

A Michigan power trio whose album is powerful and inventive - one of the best hard rock albums on the label. Showcasing a line up consisting of drummer John Bredeau, singer/guitarst Paul Frank and singer/bassist Michael Urso, the band only managed to release one instantly obscure album, but what an LP! Produced by Dan Moore and Buzz Clifford, 1971's Head Over Heels is simply great. 

Loud, tough, yet surprisingly accessible, material such as Road Runner and In My Woman showcased the trio's knack for melodic, but crunching guitar rock. Frank and Urso had attractive voices and as we said before, they sure could generate some sound. Among the few missteps were some out of kilter harmony vocals (Question) and the bland power ballad Children Of The Mist (which was almost redeemed by Frank's nice guitar solo). 

Elsewhere, recorded at Detroit's Eastowne, an extended cover of Willie Dixon's Red Rooster and the Franks-penned Circles were in-concert efforts that aptly showcased the band's impressive live chops. 

Frank and Urso subsequently reappeared with the band Fresh Start. Urso was also a late-inning member of Detroit's Rare Earth (along with the Scorpion guitarist Ray Monette), playing on several of their albums in the mid-70s.

  2. I wish you a Lucky new year Nel,thanks for every thing.

  3. One of the loudest acts of their time, this Detroit-based power trio made only one album, which stands as a lost proto-metal classic. A product of the same scene that spawned The Stooges and MC5, they play raw and dirty on a superb selection of self-penned material, as well as a molten cover of blues staple "Red Rooster." Unusually, the LP (originally released in June 1971 Capitol Records ST-797) combines live and studio recordings, perfectly showcasing their inventive take on crunching hard rock and searing power ballads, this album instantly achieved cult status and sits in well with bands such as Damnation, Power Of Zeus,Grand Funk and other early '70's US long hair heavy rock bands.
