Now here is something quite original from the good old days in the 70's, before MTV and rock videos became the order of the day. If your recollection goes that far back, you might remember seeing a flamboyant and statuesque blonde on television in an early "rock video," wearing a black tuxedo, prancing around and belting out a song with suggestive lyrics, to put it mildly! That voice was quite a surprise and belonged to one Lynn Carey who fronted a five-piece band called Mama Lion. As I remember it, a lot of guys got hooked immediately and a lot of women probably hated her on sight! But you shouldn't judge a book by its cover alone, as the old saying goes, even though Carey worked as an actress and was featured as a Penthouse Pet of the Month in December 1972.

Mama Lion was a blues/rock quintet formed in the early seventies by Canadian bass player, singer/songwriter & producer Neil Merryweather (born Robert Neilson Lillie, 1945 in Winnipeg, Manitoba) and Lynn (Catherine) Carey (born 1946 in Los Angeles) after the two had released one album "Vacuum Cleaner" as a duo. Other band members included Coffi Hall (drums), Rick Gaxiola (guitar) and Jim Howard (soundtrack composer James Newton Howard). This line-up recorded the debut album "Preserve Wildlife" (1972) with the now famous gatefold with Lynn Carey nursing a lion cub! With the release of the second LP "Give It Everything I've Got," (1973) Gaxiola was replaced by Alan Hurtz. Both albums are included in their entirety on this 2-for-1 release by Picar Records in Valencia, Spain. The remastering is splendid and Carey's bluesy interpretations are quite effective.

Most of the songs were written as a collaboration between Merryweather and Carey, with a few covers thrown in for good.

...better than you'd think 27 Jun. 2010
By ol'guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Back in the day", I first heard Mama Lion's version of "Ain't No Sunshine", followed immediately by "Be Bad With Me" and I was instantly rocked! As I listened to the rest of the album I was impressed with the consistent quality of singing, musicianship, and general innovativeness of the album. Lynn Carey is not Janis Joplin; she doesn't have to be. Her talent/singing is unique and fantastic in it's own right. The band is solid, energetic, and talented. This is a GREAT album that deserved to do better than it did and if you are at all interested in the genre of rock/blues than you will love this album. Made in the early '70's the sound quality, and musical relevance has held up to the test of time: this isn't just for "collectors". Years later, on a fluke, I searched and found this CD. This two album collection is a great buy and well worth owning; I hope you enjoy.

Flashback 21 Jun. 2010
By David Whiting - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This group had their moment of fame largely due to the lead singer (Lynn Carey) having appeared as a centerfold in a man's publication.
While a nice marketing gimmick, it sold the talents of Ms. Lynn and the band cheaply.

Lynn has amazing vocal range, less prone to shriek and more apt to go for a lower range to phrase her vocals and she does justice to all her songs.
She's fronted a bit more than the fine backing band and I'm sure that was no accident but it's not a knock against the album. Just a slight to a solid band.
The group's cover of Blind Faith's, Can't Find My Way Home, is unique and one of my favorites.

Suffering from the inevitable comparison to Janis Joplin or Lydia Pense of Cold Blood, Lynn Carey is neither and it would have been nice if she and the band could have gone further.

This is a great retro "Hippie" album that is still fresh and very good.
