Beau Brummels - Turn Around: The Complete Recordings 1964 - 1970

Steppenwolf - Magic Carpet Ride: The Dunhill/ABC Years 1967 - 1970

Iron Butterfly - Unconscious Power: An Anthology 1967 - 1971

Picked up these three boxes recently and enjoy them all. The Brummels set is complete in terms of their '60s catalog, and if you get Ron Elliot's Candlestickmaker (1969) and their 1975 reunion LP, then you have it all. The Steppenwolf set has everything up through their first incarnation in '71 before Kay's solo album, and the Iron Butterfly collection has almost everything through '71 save some pre-Heavy 45s which weren't included for some reason.

One could argue none of these bands are major for that era, but there's great music to be found for sure and I'm not complaining.
Any more of this insolence and you will be given a warning. I've had it up to here with you lately. Don't push your luck.

Budgie 1971
First album by these early progenitors of heavy metal. A bit too indebted to Led Zeppelin both in Shelley's Plantisms and Bourge's homage's to Page/Iommi (take your pick), but there's enough hard rockin' riffage here to make up for it. The usual for the time silly lyrics (I really noticed this when playing those Iron Butterfly albums the other day) - there's a song here about the singer complaining because he's being asked to get a haircut for fuck's sake, but after awhile you stop paying attention to what's being said and concentrate on the music, which ain't too shabby.

Image
Squawk 1972
More of the same, except the music is a tad less in the shadow of Zep/Sabbath and more Budgie. A long number ("Young is a World") which could almost pass for prog (Roger Dean did the LP cover), better non-heavy tunes, and the same massive riffage which defined the debut.

I like these guys.

Budgie - Never Turn Your Back on a Friend 1973
Continuing with my Budgie discoveries, this one seems to be the fave of most fans - though I can't say upon first listening that it's too much better than the previous LPs. That same combination of early metal and ballads with funny titles abounds. Good stuff, but similar-sounding to other (better) bands of the era; the appeal is that not too many bands were rocking this hard in the early seventies I guess. Another Roger Dean LP cover and some proggy leanings for those inclined to notice. Both "Breadfan" and "Parents" are highlights.

I'm enjoying this more than the 2 disc "best of" I was listening to the other day.
