Jamul 1970

This band has been blowing me a way a while now n their wildest tunes like Valley Thunder , All you have left is me, Ramblin man and monster cover of Tobacco Road are just plain kick ass tunes. They're Heavy wild and with a raw southern blues vibe with harp mixed with manic barbed wire vocals make em n this album a keeper. The rest of the tunes are more in the progressive Tull mould, not a band thing but something which might make these guys become overlooked by the heavier crowds. Jamul was managed by Steppenwolfs manger and they played lots of biker partys which says something about them. I'd call these guys CA's gritter dirtier Steppenwolf. Have a blast folks!!

White Lightning 1968

White Lightning was the brainchild of The Litter's guitarist Zippy Caplan and is a Cream influenced venture into early Hardrock/ Heavy rock or Heavy psychedelic rock. The Cream vibe is present in Zippys leads and song writing. The sound is a mix of 60's garage rock and later 60's hard rock.. truly a proto hardrock transistion era creation which is very unique in itself. Imagine a heavy album recorded in a old studio specializing in that garage rock sound. The raw fuzz moves put this album into psychedelia land with ease and are another great feature. You get the 1968 White Lightning material here including tracks of their singles. Play loud n have a blast as always. Thanx for your support appreciate it.
