First Gear - First Gear (usa 1972 hard funk rock)

First Gear - First Gear

This is a very good early funk-rock record. The band's originals are fine examples of funked up jazz-rock. Their choice of cover songs are err, uhh, rather eclectic. They put their versions of The Hollies's "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", Carole King's "I Feel The Earth Move" & Jerry Jeff Walker's "Mr. Bojangles" all right after each other. It was a rather weird listening experience to hear funky versions of those songs all in a row. But other than that unpleasantness, this is a fine record. Any fan of War or The Jaggerz might find this worth picking up.
