Next up in my $50 and Under Original 60’s/70’s Vinyl Collection is
Captain Beyond with their debut self titled release. It’s not often you’ll come across a debut Album as Solid as this one. This is a Straight up High Octane Rocket Fuelled piece of kick arse Rock. Imagine Caveman in the Wild as these guy’s just hammered , hooked and riffed anything that stood before them . The Band was made up of Original Deep Purple Lead Singer “ Rod Evans “ , Larry El Rhino Reinhardt from Iron Butterfly ( Lead Guitar) Lee Dorman from Iron Butterfly ( Bass) and Bobby Caldwell from Johnny Winter Group ( Drums ) .
The Song writing of Evans and Caldwell ( Unofficially) as El Rhino and Dorman couldn’t take any credit due to the threat of legal action from their previous Band and Management. So we’ll say that the 4 of them ( Unofficially) put together a masterpiece. On this Album Captain Beyond take you on a journey through space travel, astral tales and into the cosmos called “ Fuck Yeah “ Technically I find the lyrics quite boring however the vocals of Evans and the musicians themselves lead by Caldwell’s Drumming catapult this LP into Space at Warped Speed. Whatever Galaxy Captain Beyond were trying to Navigate us into .. it worked . It’s like you’ve been hit by a wayward meteor before being guided into the Milky Way Of Goodness. My advice is throw yourself to the Mercy of this Album, Play it Loud and be Transformed into a Lover Of this sensational Long Play . I’m grading this one a solid A .
