Potliquor - First Taste (1970 us, brilliant hard/southern blues-rock) Flac
Potliquor was formed in the late 60´s by George Ratzlaff (keyboards, rhythm guitar, vocals), Les Wallace (guitar, vocals), Guy Schaeffer (bass, vocals) and Jerry Amoroso (drums, percussion, vocals) and soon after that signed a deal with small Janus Records label. Their debut album, First Taste came out in 1970.
With a powerful singer in George Ratzlaff, Potliquor were able to muster some pretty inspired moments on vinyl.
Potliquor had its beginning in 1969 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and played an intriguing mix of country, blues- and southern rock. They released three excellent albums between 1970 and 1973 and on more in 1979 before finally breaking up. Yet these godfathers of southern rock never got the recognition they deserved.
