Yellow Dog was a British based rock band from the 1970s. Founded by the American songwriter Kenny Young, who had previously been a founder member of Fox. This 70s act revolved around the talents of Kenny Young and Herbie Armstrong. American-born Young was already an established songwriter, having penned ‘Under The Boardwalk’ for the Drifters and ‘Captain Of Your Ship’ for Reparata And The Delrons. The latter proved highly popular in the UK, inspiring the composer to move his base to London where he met his future partner. Guitarist Armstrong was a former member of the Wheels, a Belfast group contemporaneous with Them, before founding a duo with bass player Rod Demick. The duo met up when they both joined Fox and enjoyed a period of UK chart success. On the break-up of Fox in 1977, Yellow Dog was formed and their self-titled album was issued in 1977. However, its brand of sweet pop clashed with the year’s endemic punk explosion. Andy Roberts (guitar, ex-Liverpool Scene and Plainsong), Gary Taylor (bass, ex-Herd) and Gerry Conway (drums, ex-Fairport Convention) augmented the duo on this promising debut, which spawned a UK Top 10 single in ‘Just One More Night’. A second album, in part completed with the assistance of Demick and keyboard player Peter Bardens, proved less successful and the group’s name was dropped soon afterwards.

De acordo com o guitarrista Pete Cosey, durante as sessões de gravação, Howlin' Wolf olhou para ele e disse: 'Why don't you take them wah-wahs and all that other shit and go throw it off in the lake — on your way to the barber shop?'

"Eu fui negativo no título, e foi uma grande lição: Você não pode dizer na capa que o artista não gostou do álbum. Realmente não vendeu muito bem. Mas era apenas um tentativa. Eram apenas experiências ". Marshall Chess

PLATTERMEN - Old Devil Wine (1972 Ireland Rock Psych Folk Blues Funky)


VENENO SUPER RARÍSSIMO!!
SUPER RARE ALBUM!!

BANDA FORMADA EM 1964 MAS QUE LANÇOU UM ALBUM SOMENTE EM 1972!! NA VERDADE TRATA-SE DE UMA COLETÂNEA DE SEUS SINGLES GRAVADOS COM UMA NOVA ROUPAGEM MAIS SETENTISTA!! ESSE ALBUM SE TORNOU UM DOS MAIS RAROS E CAROS ENTRE COLECIONADORES IRLANDESES E AO REDOR DO MUNDO PORQUE NUNCA FOI REEDITADO!! VENENO RARÍSSIMO E EXCLUSIVO DO BLOG VENENOS DO ROCK!!

MOST LP'S ON THIS LABEL ARE FOLK ORIENTATED BUT THIS IS DEFINETLY ROCK - IT EVEN SAYS ON BACK SLEEVE 'FILE UNDER ROCK'. MANY VARIOUS STYLES HERE FROM PSYCH, BLUES , COUNTRY & HEAVY ROCK!!

In 1960 four brass players from Omagh – Ray Moore, Leo Doran, Billy McGinty, and Pat Chesters – started The Platters Paramount Showband. Recruiting country & western crooner Brian Coll, and changing their name because of the American doo-wop group of the same name, by the mid ’60s The Plattermen were a major draw on the showband ballroom circuit. From 1965 on they released a string of country and pop ballads including I’ll Take You Home Again, Kathleen, and in 1966 - in an adaptation of Roger Miller’s England Swings - they paid tribute to the scene by singing that “Ireland swings like nowhere else can, swings to the sound of the big showband. Pixies and Freshmen, the Capitol too, maybe the Plattermen’s the band for you.”  

Times were changing however, and their music began to lose its appeal. In 1967 bass player Rob Strong and guitarist Alan McCartney joined, and the following year Brian Coll left to be replaced by singer Simon Scott. The Plattermen began experimenting with a more contemporary sound; while Scott would continue to sing pop and ballad material, Strong became the driving force in the group by singing heavier soul / R’n'B tracks. By 1970 they were being hailed for this new direction with the release of the Strong-fronted single Smiling Faces (a cover of the Traffic song). The band themselves declared in a magazine announcement, “In ’71 We’re Goin’ Kinda Heavy”, and when they released an album in 1972 it bore the legend “File under Rock” - the band clearly keen to prove they had turned a corner.

That album – actually their first, notwithstanding a 1970 greatest hits collection of their singles with Coll – was Old Devil Wine, recorded in Dublin and released through the local Dolphin Records label. It was in marked contrast to their earlier material, with mostly original songs owing a debt to the brass-led soul blues rock sound of Blood Sweat & Tears more than anyone else. The track African Wah Wah was credited to The Plattermen’s John Trotter, although it’s clearly a straight cover of Santana’s Soul Sacrifice (albeit spiced with the addition of Trotter’s violin), but this aside, the album has come to be very highly regarded among collectors of both Irish music and rock music in general. The fact that it has never been re-issued has caused it to become among the most expensive Irish rock records.

RODAN - Rodan (1974 US Jazz Prog Hard Funky)


VENENO RARÍSSIMO!!
HIGH RARITY!!

ALBUM COM UMA PRENSAGEM PRIVADA DE APENAS 200 CÓPIAS!! A SONORIDADE PASSEIA ENTRE JAZZ FUSION, FUNK, BLUES, PROGRESSIVE E OUTRO GÊNEROS, EM CANÇÕES CURTAS E COM USO DE FLAUTAS EM ALGUMAS DELAS!! VENENO RARÍSSIMO, INTERESSANTE E QUE VALE A PENA DAR UM TÉKINHO!!

Hey were influenced by jazz fusion, funk, and other genres, including progressive rock!! Private prees 200 copies!! Super horn rock album, that absolutely kills on most of the 12 short tracks. There are a couple of bluesy moves and at least one James Brown styled funker, but mostly this just rips from start to finish. The kind of album you wish all horn rockers were. Smoking guitar and great brass charts. The rhythm section never stops. California based group was actually known as MAX, and toured extensively with groups like Malo and Tower of Power. Album sports a fantastic drawing on the cover.
