Who does this vocalist recall?

Organ reminds me of The Band.




The tone vaguely Rod Stewart/Frankie Miller (emphasis on vaguely to both) though phrasing doesn't sound like either.


I hear that - particularly the latter

Such a well recorded album for the time

Thunderous bass

I wonder if, like Lynyrd Skynyrd, they were influenced by Free?

Played their first album about a week ago, it's good but this already seems better - though there is the Synch listen bonus feel good factor to consider.




Have to assume this in the list of Carlson Corkers.

When I saw them first late 1968/early 1969 - certainly before my 16th birthday they were not much older than me!

Love the bass bubbling under the psych guitar.

I know they were contemporaries of Free, but Free experienced mass success at a very young age, and I wonder if Stray thought 'we'll have some of that!'.

I agree about the harp JJ

This is a 'famous' track.

I think it appeared on one of those sampler things....

Full of music
