Jodo - Guts (1971 uk, stunning heavy blues psych rock)

Jodo formed from a band called Axe who had a minor hit with a single called "Running Wild" written by Rod Alexander and Bill Kimber.

Jodo were a British band whose sole album was only released in the US at the time. Killer heavy-rock sound with ultra loud fuzzed out guitars and melodic vocals. Engineered by Martin Birch (B. Sabbath, D. Purple, B.O.C.) and produced by Derek Lawrence (D. Purple, Green Bullfrog).
