The Tuesday Playlist No.62: Early Rock Gems

This week’s playlist is a journey through obscure(ish) rock from the early 70’s, or thereabouts…

…a time when rock music had a particular flavour, caught between it’s blues-boogie and rock n’ roll roots and it’s more muscular uber-masculine high-voltage future. It was the age that spawned the power trio (for whom Cream were the model) amply represented here by Budgie, Grand Funk Railroad, Speed, Glue & Shinki, ZZ Top, Atomic Rooster, and the supergroup Beck, Bogert, and Appice, all featured alongside killer cuts from the likes of Humble Pie, Steppenwolf, Sensational Alex Harvey Band, and Ipissimus. Enjoy!
