Joseph - Stoned Age Man (1970 us, heavy fuzz psych rock)

What can we say except ...Classic Stoner (heavy fuzz) bluesrock!!!This is a rare album indeed and much sought after, originallyreleased on the Scepter label (SPS 574) in 1970 and recordedin Memphis at the legendary American Sound Studios.

The “Joseph” was in fact Joseph Long or Joseph Longeria,discovered by the albums producer and A & R man SteveTyrell playing in Houston in a battle of the blues competition!!This is the only know foray into recording that Longeria madeand he was a superb guitar player to boot!!Stoned Age Man contains some of weirdest lyrics ever written.

1. Trick Bag - 4:32
2. I Ain't Fattenin' No More Frogs For Snakes (Joseph Longeria, Glen Spreen, Mark James, Steve Tyrell) - 3:36
3. Cold Biscuits And Fish Heads - 3:37
4. Stone Age Man - 3:26
5. I'm Gonna Build A Mountain - 2:10
6. Mojo Gumbo - 2:53

Grandísimo disco, con fascinantes temas, todos por igual.
Desde la primera canción te mantiene en vilo.
La portada hace honor a esta joya musical que no nos deja indiferente.
Escuchadlo no os arrepentiréis.
Esta es otra ocasión para volver a escucharlo.
Muchas gracias MARIOS por esta sugerencia de tan alta alcurnia

This one is so cool! It's got organ, piano, harpsichord, flute I believe, and something that sounds like a sitar! Great sense of atmosphere. Much more than an offbeat blues album
