Bonus post on a slow Saturday, Robert Savage

Had this all ready for tomorrow but feeling somewhat generous, thought I'd put up an extra Saturday post with some obscure early 1970's hard/psych rock and what could POSSIBLY be wrong wit dat?
-----------------------------------------------------------


"Volume 1", indeed, this is the only known
(known to me) recording of this fine early 1970's hard-
rock/psych effort, I love this one and fans of the hard/pscyh scene will love it as well, it fits in PERFECTLY with many of the early-70's pre-hard pscyh stuff I have posted before trust me.

So, this album (From USA ca. 1970 or so), the band consisted of singer/Guitarist Robert Savage, bassist Don Parrish, and drummer Tommy Richards. They cranked out a fine slab of hard psych, in an era in which underappreciated hard-psych albums (pre-stoner rock?) albums were coming out weekly.......I have not a clue as to what happened to these dudes after this album hit, but all I can say it is a damn good period piece, if you are my age you will love it, if younger, I can't see why you wouldn't love it as well.

The opener "Beaver Baby" is kick ass with some fine female vocals (from whom?), "Milk Run" and "Don't Run and Hide" are certainly acceptable tracks. My favorite is the groovy "Save Us From the Cyclops", long one of my favorites and if I were making a "Nuggets" album of this kind of thing (I'm too lazy, don't hold your breath), this would be one of my selections.


NOT a real well known album , let me know what you think about it.....as you know I kinda like to mix things up here and provide a LOT of different ROCK N ROLL.......but YOUR opinions on it are vital to the blog, please continue to offer them up. I Love each and every person who contributes to the blog, we'll see what happens after I retire? Maybe MORE "mega posts?" perhaps.....but you GOTTA let me know what you want and you know I will (within reason of course!)

THE ADVENTURES OF ROBERT SAVAGE VOLUME 1-01 Beaver Baby/02 Milk Run/03 Don't Run and Hide/04 A Hard One/05 Seven Days Drunk/06 Save Us From the Cyclops/07 Amy (The Insane)/08 Lonely World/09 Road Apples....

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy, it's a good, obscure and deliciously dated album. Let me know what you think and ALSO of course, of ANYTHING else you'd like to see......hopefully my friend Apanta Bapanta is translating some of the Greek Punk albums I sent him into English, if THAT works out "Greek Punk" will become a semi-regular feature......help us out, though, all over the world....stuff you take for granted in YOUR corner of teh world may be a super-oddity/rarity to US......let's ALL WORK TOGETHER and we can make this thing work, it has for three years now, and there is nothing I would love than to see it continue to work with as many participants as possible. Thanks to all of you.
