First album was 1969's "Wasa Wasa", a bluesy effort that showcased the band's sophisicated, interesting songwriting ("Death of an Electric Citizen") and unusual song structure ("Dawn Crept Away").....not a GREAT album, but a decent starting point. A far more psychedelic effort (also a BETTER effort) was the follow up, "Sing Brother Sing"....you could practically hear the band maturing on each track. Full of good tracks, "There's No Vibration, But Wait!" and "Psychopath" standout, a good album leading up to......
Their third, and best album 1971's brilliantly titled "Edgar Broughton Band"......great album, a perfect blending of the bands psych, blues, and metal infuences, one of the greatest of the lesser-known rock albums of the early 1970's. There are LOTS of great tracks here, but two are flat-out spectacular, the amazing "House of Turnabout" and the stoned-out "Don't Even Know Which Day It Is"......tremendous album.
I find the remainder of their studio LP's to be "fan" material, spotty stuff with some highs and lows, listen to albums #2 and #3 and you will pretty much decide whether you wish to hear "Inside Out" (1972), "Oora" (1973), "Bandages" (1975), "Parlez-Vous English?" (1979), and "Superchip: The Final Silicon Solution" (1982). Some good, some bad, depending on your tastes.
Obviously a lot of links here, I likely won't get them all up until tomorrow......maybe Zippy will have another kick-ass performance as it did with all those Adam and the Ants discs the other day.
"I don't beleive it......don't even know which day it is....." Perfect!
