KGB 'KGB' Lemon CDLEM62
A mid 70s supergroup that, in theory, many should have heard on account of who played in the band. Featuring guitarist Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper (both ex Bob Dylan, amongst others), and drummer Carmine Appice (ex Vanilla Fudge, Ozzy Osbourne, Blue Murder and Jeff Beck etc), itís a fine set that, although excellent in places, failed to live up to expectations. By a long way.
Mixing light rock with the bandís influences of funk, folk and a touch of blues, there are some fine moments, but itís not spectacular by any means. And itís hard to believe itís the man who practically invented hard rock drumming. Largely the album lacks direction or any real bollocks.
Enjoyable - if you like this kind of thing, well packaged and the first time on CD, but not essential.
