This excellent heavy prog album was released after Sir Lord Baltimore disbanded & involved the members of Sir Lord Baltimore & produced by Vinny Testa. The Bloody Mary album is in the same vein of Sir Lord Baltimore - perfect heavy progressive rock from USA. Fantastic vocals, swirling organ, fuzzy guitar and pounding drums.
Totally rocked out bluesy stoner jams, with sex and party obsessed lyrics that are pure rock 'n' roll. Maskara was originally released in 1974 - it's the band's second studio album - and is another outstanding collection of heavy duty rockers featuring the classic band line-up of Wally Gonzales, Mike Hanopol, and Joey ''Pepe'' Smith. Highlights abound: Pinoy Blues, Nadapa Sa Arina, Beep Beep, We Love You, Palengke, and Pagod Sa Pahinga - quite a few of which were featured on the unofficial Shake Your Brains disc from a few years ago (always a customer favorite). No-frills packaging, but still a great way to acquire some of the best material by these heavy rock legends. Digitally remastered.
Official deluxe edition, made with full approval of the original compliers. The original 1979 Greensleeves ‘Original Rockers’ compilation was instrumental in bringing the music of Augustus Pablo to an international audience and with this 23 track set we pay tribute to that landmark release with a crucial selection of further cuts of the original albums classic rhythms including some rare sides making their album debut.
In January 1973, David Liebman, the saxophonist who played on the first sessions of On The Corner let himself be persuaded to play with the group. It really wasn’t his kind of music, but he thought that “it was where things were happening,” and as was his habit, he joined the fray. And it was prodigious, even if Miles had reduced his band in an attempt to radicalize the Afro-funk directions of On The Corner. No more keyboards, except for a few touches by Miles himself and no more Indian instruments.
