When Leonard Cohen sang “I was born like this, I had no choice/I was born with the gift of a golden voice” in his song “Tower of Song” in 1988, most people took it as a self-deprecating joke. No one regarded him as one of the great vocalists of his generation when he released his first albums in the late ’60s, given the dour, sometimes flat tone of his delivery.Read More

Released in 2016, I’m A Freak Baby – Grapefruit’s 3-CD overview of the UK’s late Sixties/early Seventies nascent hard rock/proto-metal scene – received rapturous acclaim from pundits and punters alike, with The Guardian’s “grim, grey and glorious” summary succinctly capturing the general response to the set. Three years later, the woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks again. And, like all good follow-ups, I’m A Freak 2 Baby expands upon the original while simultaneously tightening the stylistic mesh..In addition to further selections from some of the subterranean stars of the first volume (Iron Claw, the semi-housetrained Stack Waddy, the even more semi-housetrained Wicked Lady), we feature many of the genre’s pioneers, with key tracks from The Jeff Beck Group, Edgar Broughton Band, Atomic Rooster and High Tide.Read More

Three CD collection. Although vintage British psychedelia is viewed by many these days as an Alice In Wonderland-style enchanted garden full of beatific flower children innocently gathering flowers or chasing butterflies, there was always a more visceral element to the scene. Pointedly free of such fripperies as scarlet tunic-wearing gnomes, phenomenal cats and talismanic bicycles, the power trio format that was popularized by the likes of Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience spawned a host of imitators. As the 60s drew to a close and pop evolved slowly but inexorably into rock, psychedelia gave way to a sound that was harder, leaner, heavier, louder.Read More

Unlike either its predecessor Alone in the Universe or 2001’s Zoom, From out of Nowhere didn’t appear after a prolonged period of silence from Jeff Lynne’s ELO. It arrived in November of 2019, nearly exactly four years after Alone in the Universe, a rapid turnaround that recalls Lynne’s work schedule as a bandleader and producer in the 1970s and ’80s. That’s not the only way From out of Nowhere conjures memories of the past.Read More
