Debut album (1971) by short-lived power-trio from Orlando, California. Good, but not great, it lacks in fact both power and original ideas. Since the first appearance of "Cream", America heartily embraced the newfound magic weapon - three was the minimum required to render the audience dumbfounded and deaf - without jeopardizing the quality of music. This magic formula didn't suffer from the shortage of devoted fans and exponents - from loud Blue Cheer with post-pubescent high school vocals (Vincebus Eruptum) to charismatic Grand Funk, and lesser known Flow (Greatest Hits and forgotten Fields.
Tin House, formed in 1969, soon built a solid reputation as live act connected to both Edgar and Johnny Winter (big names, but not on the brightest side of musical creativity), and in October 1970 they performed at Bill Graham's Fillmore East with Johnny Winter and Buddy Miles. So, the sole album of Tin House ("recorded loud to be played louder!") features Edgar Winter and Rick Derringer. The album was produced by Rick Derringer, and it shows a competent act in peak form with excellent skills. Somehow - to my humble taste - in spite of excellent production and orchestration, the music is self-repetitive and monotonous, and the vocals have no power of the peers. The album drifts closer to forgotten Chariot (Chariot, than to menacing madness of No Rest for the WickedNo Rest For The Wicked, or Peacepipe (Peacepipe.
Needless to say that the album is not match for the Britons - The Entrance To Hell or Hard Meat/Through a Window.
It seems that the album failed to score, and Floyd Radford soon dropped Tin House to join Edgar Winter for Edgar Winters White Trash.
Until recently it was considered as a sole album, but it turned out that Floyd Radford recorded the second one with guest musicians - Winds of Past - more mature, more calm, and again with vocals on the thin side.
I bought, I enjoyed it, I do play it from time to time, but it's not a must - any of the albums I mentioned in this review are far better. It's a matter of taste, but be cautious

This is the one and only album from Tin House and I wish they had made a few more. One for the collectors.

I bought this after reading a review that raved about it's lost classic status. I didn't sell because it's not very good! Very third division stuff.
