Well, no not at all. This release comes from a German band playing some lush and dynamic soul pop with an emotionally exalted vocal style that reminds a bit of Tom Jones at times.
The songs range from powerfully onward grooving booty shakers to striking melodic tunes with great chorus lines that enlighten your spirit.
When you take a listen you will realize these folks had a sense for the classic beat music of just a few years priori to this release and they really manage to lay down a steaming performance on this style actually already outdated back then. I could not have told the difference between these krauts and any popular British or North American act in their genre. There is passion, sheer lust, a wild and animalistic drive and an ongoing groove that will mesmerize you.
Technically this is a really solid group that knows to let loose when it is time to but mostly keeps the energy flow under control. I am certain that 60s fanatics who love the soul and early rock fusion of thisera will go insane. It might be one of these typical exploito bands that were only studio projects done by the same musicians on several occasions for good money to be sold in the bargain bin to a willing audience.
Well, we rather do not think further into that direction since the music that appears on "Soul fire" strikes your deepest inner self and sets your spirit aflame. The melodies are amazing and if you go and check the rhythms you will end up shaking wit lout a chance to escape the everlasting pulse. This should have been enormously big. Think of later day Animals, The Four Tops and the Equals all thrown into a mixer on full throttle, you might get something of a similar quality.
One of the great mysteries of late '60s psychedelic soul music! Though only released on the German exploitation market in , this exceptional album may very well be the work of an American studio outfit or Americans living in Germany? Martin Siegel and Scott English. But there also are traces of pop and you even get a Dylan-esque slice of folk-rock. Odd, exciting and unique!

Last of the Brooklyn Cowboys, Guthrie's sixth album, was released in April It was another effort largely given over to cover material and performed with the cream of Los Angeles session musicians. Subsequent releases struggled to spend a few weeks in the bottom half of that list, or did not chart at all. This commercial decline was first apparent with the release of his seventh album, Arlo Guthrie, in May The sales were especially disappointing given the quality of the LP, which increased the number of Guthrie originals to include the scathing "Presidential Rag," a reflection on the current Watergate scandal about to drive President Nixon from office; "Children of Abraham," an examination of the Arab-Israeli conflict; and "Last to Leave," a personal expression by a man who had spent his entire life wondering whether he carried the disease that killed his father.
Guthrie refused to be tested to determine whether he had the gene that causes Huntington's disease, but as he aged and showed no symptoms, it became apparent that he did not.
Despite his dropping record sales, Guthrie remained a potent concert attraction. He teamed with Pete Seeger for a series of concerts that resulted in a double-LP live album, Together in Concert, released in May That fall, he hired a local Massachusetts band, Shenandoah, as his regular backup group for shows.

Writing in the countryside was pretty much the done thing at the time — bands such as Traffic, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple had prepared for albums in similar settings.
Keep up the great work and don't forget to get cheap cigarettes online. Very nice site as well Thanks for sharing it. Alessandro Alessandroni is mostly known for his unmistakable whistle in Ennio Morricone's soundtracks composed for Sergio Leone's westerns but, in a world where information is easily accessible to many people, still very few people know how vast his discography is, and how many instruments he was able to play.
In the '60s, Ennio Morricone renewed the world of soundtracks in such a radical way that it is still influential today, thanks to his collaboration with film director Sergio Leone. In the following decade, another artistic partnership, the one between Goblin and Dario Argento, made a second revolution in the same field, in particular in the music of thriller and horror films.
A full global scale renewal, which has inspired a myriad of artists in the decades to come to the present day, and will continue to do so in the future. To celebrate the genius of one of the most talented and influential bands in the history of soundtracks, Cinevox Record, in collaboration with AMS Records, has worked on a 'Best Of' divided into two parts. Thanks to this collection, a Record Store Day exclusive release, you'll discover why the Goblin were great and unique, and why defining them 'revolutionary' is not an exaggeration at all.
This first volume also contains a rare edit version of the song 'Roller' - different from the one used in the regular LP and used in the European release of George Romero's 'Martin' movie edited by Dario Argento - and the two parts of 'Chi? RSD release. After the 'Dollar Trilogy', Sergio Leone was given a new offer on another western movie that he could not refuse.
Each character is strongly stereotyped here, a fact emphasized by the motion picture soundtrack, once again delivered by Ennio Morricone in collaboration with his orchestra and Alessandro "The Whistler" Alessandroni and his Choir, with the addition of the female singer Edda Dell'Orso. The flavor is epic, but also very romantic at some points, since there's a love story involving Jill, an ex-prostitute, and one of her old lovers, Cheyenne. This is another excellent demonstration that, when it comes to the exquisite blending of images and music, Italians do it better!
In a few words, this is another perfect soundtrack for a magnificent movie! Includes poster. A film not only rated among the best of the genre, but universally considered among the most successful in the history of cinema. The maestro Ennio Morricone has here been able to be as meticulous as his friend director, composing a soundtrack that fits brilliantly to the bombastic and epic atmospheres of the film. There are also some classical chamber music elements in their recordings due their orchestrations.
They were photographed for the press and then presented to the audiences at London's Saville Theater. The band also produced some singles like "Pentecost Hotel", "Tiny Goddess" from "all of us" and "Rainbow Chaser", which was their most successful tune ever 34th in UK singles chart at May This song is also thought to be the first-ever British recording to feature the audio technique known as phasing, which was identified with the psychedelic musical style.
Despite this excursion, and their group name and hippy outlooks, the band's music didn't have much any other psychedelic elements.Tracks 1 to 10 are his debut solo LP "Me And My Friend" - released February in the UK on Sovereign Records SVLP (no USA issue). Produced by Lyons - it didn't chart. All songs by Lyons except "Out Of Nowhere" penned by Bobby Harrison, James Cannon, Jim Frank, Peter Dennis and Patrick Campbell-Lyons/5(6).
