Wild Turkey

Let's dig back deep for a bit more of that early 70's rock n roll that we all love so much.......Wild
Turkey were a Jethro Tull offshoot, consisting of bassist Glenn Corrnick, guitarist Tweke Lewis, guitarist/singer Jon Blackmore, and drummer Jeff Jones....they created a couple of early 1970's gems that are fairly unknown, we present them here and hope thatyou enjoy them whild BigCarla66 and myself are enjoying a couple days of blackjack and semi-kinky sex (as semi-kinky as we 45-50 year olds can indulge in at least!)

First album was 1971's "Battle Hymn", it is a damn good, straight ahead hard rock epic, plenty of good shit here, "Butterfly", "Twelve Streets of Cobbled Black", "Sanctuary", and lots more, this version genrously includes a pair of live bonus tracks.

The following year they released "Turkey", it is quite good as well, maybe not QUITE on par with "Battle Hymn", but a good album nonetheless, just listened to it today in fact......plenty of ear-pleasing straight-ahead rock n roll, good vocals and guitar, and THIS ONE also includes a threesome of live bonus tracks, good deal!

I also have "Rarest Turkey", no idea why it's so "rare" given the relative obscurity of the two original albums, but not complaining........good stuff here, too, the single version of "Good Old Days", "If You See Kay" (oh, so CLEVER), and once again, a generous handful of live bonus tracks..

These are good albums, really.. hope you check them out and REPORT BACK with your opinions on them, variety, variety, variety, oh, I've already done that spiel before.....sorry but I'm half drunk. Anyway, we still be at the casino, be home tomorrow, and GOD KNOWS what I'll be in the mood to post then.....all I know is that, when I retire (June 27), this blog is NOT retiring with me, in fact, I may "improve" it, although THAT wouldn't be too terribly hard to do.

Everyone, please take care of and your spouses and your children.......really, WHAT ELSE is there? Nothing.......
