Wailing Wall

As a (temporary, that's another story we'll discuss later, exciting new job prospect has materialized),
sometimes I sit up late at night, wasted on beer/kratom (I'm a HUGE kratom fan, ask me about it privately if you want), and I do 2 or 3 posts in a night, if I get the new job, the schedule will change a bit, obviously.....anyway, in the last few hours, I've done the goofball-silly "Pat Boone in a Metal Mood" (a "classic" of pure schlocky garbage) and also a fairly comprehensive post on punk semi-unknowns The Restarts (seriously, check it, it's fairly badass).......anyway, I think I'll do one more quicky, fuck, it's only 2:12 AM after all.......

Why not a bit more of my beloved early 1970's psych, hey, I fucking strive for VARIETY even over quality (see: Pat Boone), but this motherfucker is a classic of that much underappreciated genre/era......

OK, I really thought I had posted this one before, but a quick check reveals that I have not.....SO, Wailing Wall released but this one album (as did so many of those early 70's psych-rockers).....they consisted of singer Doug Adams, guitarist Mike Cancellari, bassist Darrell Adams, and drummer David Rutledge. These dudes hailed from Texas, El Paso to be specific, and as I said released but this one album (1970)......as with so many of these type of items, it is a no-doubt  unknown/rare classic, seriously....(not to get off topic TOO MUCH, but is there ANY genre/era of rock that is LESS appreciated for what it is than these early 70's (post Nuggets) psych albums?......God there are so many amazing discs from that era (I've posted many) that people SIMPLY DON'T KNOW OF).

This is a great album, one that stands up to many listenings.......I think the reason that so many of these albums are unappreciated is that they were so FUCKING far ahead of their time (just my opinion)....from start to finish, this is some extraordinary heavy psychedelia. Quite sloppy, which is typical and just fine, it's VERY Hendrix influenced, "Meet My Dreams" reminds me a good bit of Jimi's "Rainy Day, Dream Away", and "Mad Rapper" certainly is not embarassed to show it's Hendrix roots.......we also get the obligatory (and funny) period piece-epic, the nine minute "Country of the Goose", which of course is about 4 minutes too long and features some lyrics that must have been written under the influence of some, uh, well something...........

I have no idea what happened to them after this release, I have researched it a tiny bit but I don't really care all that much.....you guys know that this specific era/genre (hard psych 1970-73 or so) is one of my true passions.......so PLEASE check this out, I think it's fairly rare (not sure really), but it's a good one, and if you share my passion for this type of thing, you will see what I mean instantly.

Good album, really........please check it and gimme a full report if this pops your cherry!
