The Age Of Reason
First ever vinyl reissue of this US’ 69 private album by this ad-hoc studio band project featuring ex-Telstars bass player Terry Gorka plus drummer Bill Manning, lead guitarist Billy Windsor and keyboard player Tommy Dildy.
Heavy bluesy / soulish / R&B club jamming sound full of powerful Hammond organ, hard guitar and passionate vocals, not unlike early Vanilla Fudge. Devastating covers of The Band’s “This wheel’s on fire”, Savoy Brown’s “Stay with me baby” and Sonny Bono’s (via Nancy Sinatra / Vanilla Fudge / Terry Reid) “Bang Bang” among others plus some choice originals. Starring guitar legend Danny Gatton on two tracks.
Featured in Hans Pokora’s “1001 Record Collector Dreams” book.
Remastered sound, insert.
