THE Electric Firebirds...
I Googled, I allmusic.com'd...Electric Firebirds? Nothing to be found.
Well, I'm sure there's something to be found, but I just don't feel like searching that hard.
Tonight's listen was this album:
Just looking at this cover from a distance, it looks fairly cool. Kinda groovy-60's chick with some records. This could be good. However, upon closer look, yep...you can see some boobage. Can't say I care all that much about that. So, obviously marketed towards (mostly) men, I'm sure.
Track Listing: (Record doesn't have a track listing on the back cover, only song listings on the record label itself...and doesn't indicate, as far as I can tell, which is side A and which is side B...not that it really matters here, so I'll just list them by the side I listened to first and it shall ever more be.)
1. Let's Make It
2. Live Cream
3. Moon Right On
4. Troubled Earth
5. Electric Fireworks
2. Doors Time
3. Out of Town
4. Woodstock Hour
5. Nice and Easy
My guess? These are studio musicans, perhaps? They're all instrumentals and there's no songwriting credits on any of these listed. Thus, my conclusion is the the names of the songs were all created to fit the times. So...this came out, hmm...'68ish?
The music isn't bad. It's better than most instrumental party albums I've heard. And that's what it is. Music to put on for your 60's fun-time party. Something you can dance to, or ignore.
"Electric Fireworks" kind of sounded like "If I Had a Hammer."
My Five Thumb - All Thumbs Rating: 2 tiny thumbs up
Now, on to John:
Where did you buy this record and when?
At one of Izzy's record shows in Springfield, NJ around the late '90s, early 2000's.
Do you own it in any other format?
What is your over-all impression of this album?
It's a budget label. Grocery store record. They're studio musicans, and the record company releases these same songs over and over again with different titles and different covers. Might by Jerry Cole somewhere on there.
Overall, just a fun album for the "cheese" factor.
How many stars out of five?
