Mandrill - Mandrill(1970 jazz prog funk)
Mandrill - Mandrill
This is a bright, explosive, progressive debut. The band does plenty of afro-cuban jams, but they also venture into jazz and do a prog-rock suite on the second side of the album. A great interesting debut, indeed....
Mandrill - Mandrill Is(1972)
Mandrill - Mandrill Is

Mandrill were part of the fusion movement of the early seventies - undervalued until this day. Though they recall other bands - Santana, Tower of Power, War come to mind - Mandrill did have their own unique way of blending the ingredients. On Mandrill is, their second album, there´s a Prog-Rock aspect adding to their Latin Funk core. Add some Jazz influences and a touch of psychedelica, and you have a rich, yet not over-spiced brew.

Autosalvage - Autosalvage(1968 heavy psych)
Autosalvage - Autosalvage
Extremely metallic psychedelic classic that is very unusual and intriguing. I have a vinyl pressing that is extremely loud and far better than a CD issue I have heard. The sound is reminiscent of the crunching rhythm guitar / bass / drum sound of Revolver tracks like Taxman and Dr Robert with a dense web of counterpoint between tightly structured bass and electric guitar lines, a little reminiscent of Marquee Moon. The sound is quite fascinating and the dense counterpoint metallic approach is sustained throughout the album. The vocals are a weakness however - it is the tracks that really stand out as a tour de force of arranging structured guitar and bass parts. This is psychedelia but experimental and definitely of interest to fans of electric guitar and metallic sounds. Another fascinating one-album band and a personal favourite.
