PLUM NELLY - Deceptive Lines (USA-1971) @320

Americanos..Unico Disco Editado..Raro donde los haya a pesar de haberse editado en MAYOR label..Killer hard rock progresivo. 6 Temas repletos de super guitar work,bien estructurados con buen organo y aceptable flauta.Muy buen disco..

This five man band began playing under the name "Creedmore State" until Nicky and Arnie Ungano of the famed defunct New York City rock club of the same name took them under their wings and signed the band to Capitol Records under the name Plum Nelly. They either played with or opened for many famous acts such Bo Diddley, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jimi Hendrix, The Kinks, Savoy Brown, John Mayall, Fleetwood Mac, Rod Stewart and The Faces, Joe Cocker, Dr. John, Muddy Waters, Terry Reid and notibly at Carnegie Hall with The James Gang.
The band recorded the album Deceptive Lines at Capitol East, November through December 1970 along with producer Kenneth Cooper. Guests on the album included Jeremy Steig (of Jeremy and The Satyrs) on flute and The Sweet Inspirations were featured on the background vocals of Lonely Man's Cry. The Sweet Inspirations were led by Cissy Houston who is Whitney Houston's mom. They also were Elvis Presley's and Aretha Franklin's backup singers during this period. Dave Bash Johnson played conga's on the song Carry On.
The group toured the US during the early seventies and relocated in Los Angles in 1974. It was at this time that John Murphy replaced Bob Feit, who went on to become Tina Turner's bass player.

Disco interesante, facilmente Demon es el mejor tema, y facilmente se podría incluir en cualquier recopilación de lo mejor del hard rock underground usa de los 70's. Un tema muy bien estructurado y ejecutado. Interesante también la apertura Deception, como Sail Away, o la final Never Done muy british. En fin supongo que, y me viene a la cabeza Head Over Heels, Capitol no apostó por el disco y ahí se quedó, consecuencia directa de una sobredosis de buenos discos y talento, hecho que ahora mismo suena tan distante...

Poco que añadir al comentario de Damone. Coincido plenamente. Mucha competencia y supongo que muchos discos sin recibir la atención que merecían por parte de la compañía. Este concretamente no es uno de mis favoritos de este género, pero me gusta, faltaría "plus".
