The Day After The Sabbath 29: Hard Rock Heaven

Welcome to Volume 29 of TDATS. Blodwyn Pig kick off with a frantic track, they were founded by guitarist-vocalist-songwriter Mick Abrahams, after he left Jethro Tull in 1968 due to a falling-out with Tull leader Ian Anderson. Fraction include an intense vocal performance reminiscent of Jim Morrison. Stonehouse were a UK band that only recorded one album 'Stonehouse Creek', they show an english take on southern hard rock. The Stampeders are a wild card here, they were a canadian country band that pulled out all the stops for just one song, and here it is. Good rats had some success in the US, cutting their teeth in Long Island’s thriving club scene, along with other notable names such as Twisted Sister. Jodo enter with their big, direct no-nonsense bluesy grooves that get straight to the point and drill you into submission. Legs Diamond sound like an American take on Deep Purple, featuring driving keys from Michael Prince. A brilliant cover, by a brilliant band, of a brilliant song from another brilliant band,  that is all I can say about track 12. And to the end...a bit of fun with a re-appearance of Blodwyn Pig to see us off into hard rock heaven.
