5.0 out of 5 stars Contender for 'Album of the Year'!, 4 May 2017
This review is from: Cut The Master (Audio CD)
I can't believe this band aren't getting more press! One of the best live bands out there - imagine 'Ogden's' era Small Faces fronted by Grace Slick and Julie Driscoll and you're somewhere near (yes they are that good!) In the studio there are still shades of Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane's 'Crown Of Creation' springs to mind) with touches of Fleetwood Mac circa 'Rumours' (just think of the songs and forget all the other nonsense!) For the hipster listeners think Goat, Jane Weaver, Paul Weller's 'Saturns Patterns', for the more eclectic listener think Ruth Copeland, Merry Clayton, early Elkie Brooks and John and Beverly Martyn. If they play near you, go and see them. I saw them in Brighton last night and the hairs on the back of my neck are still standing up! Outstanding musicianship with vocal harmonies to die for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cosmic Boogie, 5 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Focus Level (Audio CD)
Worth checking out if you fancy hearing what might have happened had John Lee Hooker got high with the Grateful Dead instead of Canned Heat (not knocking Hooker'n'Heat by the way!) Or say the Spacemen Three had got elegantly wasted with Dr. Phibes & The House Of Wax Equations and jammed away into a blissful coma. Parts of this could pass for outtakes from 'Safe As Milk' had Capt. Beefheart and his Magic Band taken some serious downers before plugging in. And that's meant as a compliment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now let's have the rest...., 4 Aug. 2006
A sterling job from Mr. Votel - gets better with each repeated listen but may also infuriate many listeners who just want to hear the entirety of the songs sampled (Marsha Hunt's 'The Beast Day' being my particular desire!) Whoever now owns the right to Vertigo's back catalogue should pull their finger out and get these titles remastered and reissued immediately! The box set was fine but only served to further frustrate in some ways. Apparently a German label, Repertoire, have issued quite a few Vertigo titles on CD as have an Italian label, Arkama, but I'm not sure of the legality of these releases and they certainly haven't been remastered. Jump to it you faceless record industry types!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wave your freak flag high!, 21 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Wolfmother (Audio CD)
If you dig Hendrix, Ozzy's Sabbath, Blue Cheer, Grand Funk, Mark II Deep Purple, Zepp, James Gang, Groundhogs or more obscure outfits like Leafhound and May Blitz then this Aussie power-trio's stunning debut could be the one you've been looking over your shoulder for! An out and out winner that delivers from start to finish. Opening track "Colossal", "Woman", "Dimension" (could easily be mistaken for a missing track from the Black Sabbath - S/T sessions - I kid you not!) and "Witchcraft" with it's Jethro Tull-esque flute are instant repeat play favourites. If you bought the earlier S/T EP and are worried that some of the tracks are duplicated on the album fear not these are re-recorded versions which somehow manage to add to the already impressive early recordings! Call it retro, call it stoner, call it whatever - this is just great solid rock'n'roll - the kind that Zepp made sound so easy!
