Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Ashkan" was the name of the IIIrd dynasty of Persian kings (the only explanation known to me) adopted by British act from the 60s, which was up to a certain point resurrected from "Black Cat Bones" (BARBED WIRE SANDWICH) and for several years was pushing around a crafty concoction of hard rock/acid/blues with occasional ventures into prog. The musical inspiration was based on borrowing unashamedly from Spooky Tooth, Winwood/Traffic and Cream, and heavily leaned on guitars - very much in line with Cream or Procol Harum. On the other hand, it was a pretty original sound - heavy and aggresive, not medidative and melancholic. The voice of Steve Bailey is powerful and impressive growling (a la Cocker) with the solid backing from Ron Bending, Terry Sins and Bob Weston (who in 1972 joined Fleetwod Mac as guitarist). In 1969 "Ashkan" recorded and the same year released (or it was 1970?) this album for "Nova" - "progressive" subsidiary of "Decca", known for dropping talented and promissing musicians at the beginning of their career. "Ashkan" went to obscurity to be brought back now. Quality album - better this than many fakes of "neo-classic rock" or "stoner"

--But at least the music on this album is heavier than anything that Joe Cockers ever recorded.
Ashkan included among their ranks a future member of Fleetwood Mac on guitar (Bob Weston), and judging by what I have heard on this excellent album, he is a good player too. In from the cold was the first release on the short lived Decca nova label, and is a fine collection of heavy psychedelic blues rock that is slightly different to other blues rock of the period. One song "pratically never happens" appears on the compilation album Strange Pleasures; a superb collection of Decca/Deram releases.
Hard to decide which song is best, thou a possible candidate could be the last track on the album (darkness). A hard rocking tune that is ahead of it's time.
If heavy guitar based late 60s/70s blues influenced rock is your thing, then I think this record should appeal to you.
