Orang-Utan

Probably the softest spotthat I hold in my musical heart is for the heavy-psych rock of the era of about 1969-72....most of it was dismissed at the time, but as extremely important stepping stones to modern day stoner rock, these albums, when pulled out today, sound magnificent as they ever did......bands like Sir Lord Baltimore, Dark, Dust, Stray Dog, BMF Trike,Pink Faiies, and many moreTONS beleive me) were, in retrospect, so far ahead of their time that thier genius would not be truly appreciated until 40+ years later. I've tried to point these classics out to you on the occasions that I post them, and hope you check them and appreciated them as amuch as I do.

So from that same general circle comes the UK's "Orang-Utan", who fit the niche to perfection.....heavy psych/blues, plenty of fuzzy wah wah guitars, bluesy vocals, somewhat stoned out lyrics.....aww hell, YOU already know what it sounds like. Just remember that it was not appreciated in 1917, but today, is a REALLY GOOD and significant album which influenced a lot of my favorite music of the late 90's-mid 00's.

Standout tracks are "Slipping Away" and "Chocolate Piano", no need to nit-pick, though, they are all pretty good and worth a listen as a whole.

By the way the lineup was vocalist Nobby Clark, drummer Jeff Seopardie, guitarist Mick Clarke, and bassist Paul Roberts.....there was, evidently, a second guitarist on some of the album, he was dismissed for unknown reasons soon after the record was finished....it has been established that his name was "Sid" but that's all we can uncover right now, too bad, there are OBVIOUSLY two guitars on these tracks and both are worth noting.......well, maybe "Sid" will read this and come forth.....

ORANG-UTAN-01 I Can See Inside Your Head/02 Slipping Away/03 Love Queen/04 Chocolate Piano/05 If You Leave/06 Fly Me High/07 Country Hike/08 Magic Playground

Give it a shot, let me know what you think........comments and suggestions are my life blood, ya know!
