The amusing thing about the hit single is that, despite having snippets of "Sweet Little Sixteen," "Long Tall Sally," "Chantilly Lace," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Blue Suede Shoes," and "Party Doll" within its three minutes and five seconds, it is the original melody and music written by the five bandmembers which works better than the covers inside.
Lovecraft Boston Burglar - Cat Mother And The All Night Newsboys* - The Street Giveth. And The Street Taketh Procol Harum here. That's the pity here. Half the songs are written by the bandmembers, while the other five were composed by various combinations of the men in the group. There's absolutely no focus to the album, with a song like "How Kinderen voor Kinderen - 30 Jaar TV Op DVD (DVD) Spent My Summer" having little relation to "Marie," the tune that follows it.
Imagine the experimentation of another group from the era, Ten Wheel Drivewithout the intrigue of the songs of Aram Schefrin and Michael Zager.
Wonder how Hendrix amused himself while the band was recording "Probably Won't," almost five minutes of strange backing vocals over a weak melody.
Side two fares a bit better. The best track next to the hit is the nine-and-a-half-minute jam "Track in 'A' Nebraska Nights ," written by the group. Percussion and a throbbing rhythm show that the band had chops but truly squandered their golden opportunity.
Roby does mention that John McDermott's book, Jimi Hendrix: Sessions, states that there are two reels of Hendrix jamming with an unknown guitarist. That would make this album a bit more interesting, for sure, as it really needed a song and vocal from Hendrix to pull it out of the bargain bins.
Roby also notes that the band, represented by Hendrix 's manager, Michael Jeffry who managed Genya Ravan of Ten Wheel Drive at one point as wellopened for Hendrix at one of his final gigs in Sweden, September It was their affiliation with the guitar great that puts them in the history books and makes this LP a bit of an artifact.
