Paul Revere And The Raiders – Midnight Ride [1966]

Paul Revere And The Raiders – Midnight Ride [1966]

Band: American
Producer: Terry Melcher
The Band: Mark Lindsay – Drake Levin – Phil Volk – Mike Smith – Paul Revere
position on the Billboard: # 4 ° position

60’s Hotel: Here is another American band from the Garage Rock gang. Band that marked era and showed strength and swam against the British wave.

Not that they are better than Beatles, Stones, Who, Byrds, Beach Boys, Doors, no. But they managed to gather influences from every great record in their sound. The energy of the Who, the aggressiveness of the Animals, the harmony of the Beatles, the hits of the Stones, in short, they managed to demonstrate in Midnight Ride that an American band could make the desired rock without participating in the “British invasion.” ‘Kicks’, the anti-drug anthem (I can not believe it but it existed … ) and ‘I’m Not Your Stepping Stone’ (Later re-recorded by the Sex Pistols) are songs that many of the bands quoted would like to have as their singles, such the quality. ‘Louie Go Home’ and ‘Melody For An Unknown Girl’ are also very good, after all it’s hard to even say a bad word. ‘All I Really Need Is You’ might very well have been the 60’s anthem. But it was not.

Paul Revere and The Raiders were never a beloved band, although they sold their records well in the United States and reached some status in the American mainstream. By tinkering with the name of a martyr of American independence (Note *) , Paul Revere (organist name band leader) and, moreover, to dress as time soldiers and make adventures on stage, have never been seen with a lot of confidence and Good eyes, different from the Beatles darlings and other names of America like the Beach Boys for example.

Maybe that’s one reason Paul Revere’s band name is not remembered as deserved. But left in Midnight Ride, as well as the first Paul Revere, an important souvenir for American musical independence.

The Bobby Fuller Four – I Fought The Law [1966]

The Bobby Fuller Four – I Fought The Law [1966] Band: American The Band: Bobby Fuller, Randy Fuller, James Reese and Dalton Powell Producer: Bob Keane position on the Billboard: # 4 Position 60’s Hotel: Gaston Robert Fuller, born in Baytown, Texas. During his youth, now better known as Bobby, and his brother Randy came to tour with Yucca Records. – Like the one that was illustrated in the movie Wonders, touring with several artists that are on the charts – Still in Texas Bobby built a primitive studio for Improve your skills as a music producer. In 1964 Bobby moved to Los Angeles with his The Bobby Fuller Four, and then they were discovered by a producer, And signed a contract with Mustang Records. Bob Kane was the name of this producer, is it, you do not know ??? I’ll tell you who it is – Mr. Bob was responsible for discovering Ritchie Valens, is himself, hit with La bamba and other lightning hits. Bob Keane also discovered and produced, in addition to Bobby Fuller Four, several bands of surf music. The recordings of Bobby Fuller Four reveal the influence of Eddie Cochran, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Little Richard. Her first Top 40 hit was “Let Her Dance”, written by Bobby Fuller. His second hit, “I Fought a Law,” hit # 4 on Billboard. It was written by Sonny Curtis, a former member of the Buddy Holly and the Crickets group. “I Fought a Law,” would also make success later in the Punk Rock scene with The Clash, with an overwhelming version. Much to match the Bobby Fuller Four American garage band that was. The disc posted is his first album, because unfortunately Bobby Fuller died in 1966 in Los Angeles, California, by suffocation when vacuuming gasoline. Police considered the death an apparent suicide, though many still believe Bobby was murdered. He was found inside his car, with several body wounds covered with gasoline, raising the suspicion that the probable perpetrators had to flee before he could set the vehicle on fire. Ritche Valens style – Success followed by death. By asphyxiation when vacuuming gasoline. Police considered the death an apparent suicide, though many still believe Bobby was murdered.

Big Brother And The Holding Company – Cheap Thrills [1968]

Big Brother And The Holding Company – Cheap Thrills [1968]

Band: American
Producer: John Simon
The Band: Janis Joplin – Sam Andrew – James Gurley – Peter Albin – Chuck Jones
Position on Billboard: 1

60’s Hotel: Cheap Thrills should be called Expensive Thrills, such a precious thing. Janis Joplin’s latest record with Holding Company is spectacular, from first to last track. The screams, yowls and everything else provided by Janis is creepy on tracks like Turtle Blues and Ball And Chain.
The supreme hit Piece Of My Heart did not even have to be quoted, since it’s mandatory in any compilation on the great songs of all time. The symbiosis of Joplin and band, at this point unfortunately was no longer the best possible, contrary to what is presented on the disc. In December 68 the singer would leave the group for a solo flight that, although consolidating it at the top, might never again reach the vigor and aggressiveness of this album, released in August of the same year.

The Cape, Designed by the myth Robert Crumb, is a show apart and portrays the potential of the band to challenge the great work of pop art of the time, still Sgt. Peppers. And it was a demand from Joplin for the cover. Joplin was a big fan of Robert Crumb and underground comics of the time. Still floating in the boom of its presentation of Monterrey Pop Festival and with the quality of the band, that made one of the majors readings of the history of the rock in Summertime, success of all the times of Jazz, it would not be impossible to become one of the biggest groups of the But there’s nothing real and concrete in the ’60s. What’s concrete is Cheap Thrills, the magnificent album from the most emotionally hopeless voice of the golden era of rock. Still the Sgt. Peppers. And it was a demand from Joplin for the cover.

Cream – Fresh Cream [1966]

Cream – Fresh Cream [1966] Band: English Producer: Robert Stigwood Band: Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker Billboard: # 39th Position

60’s Hotel: It was the first release of producer Robert Stigwood on his new independent label Reaction Records. And the first album by Cream, Power Trio Ingles, responsible for innovating and becoming a big influence on the genre of progressive rock, and in its psychedelic rock time – Fresh Cream kicks the door and transforms every atmosphere of what was being done Rock at the time …

Many critics and researchers have Cream as the band responsible for starting the genres Acid Rock and Hard Rock as well. It is true that the Cream with the brilliant minds that had in the band, even being only a power trio, would surely form something in the 60’s as several bands of the second half of the decade.

Fresh Cream reached number 6 in the UK in February 1967 and – finally – the number 39, in August in the United States in 1968. The British version omitted the song “I Feel Free” in the American version contained, despite ending up excluding “Spoonful.” In a re-released CD of 2000 the two songs of the order album were preserved. In 2003, the album was ranked number 101 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The Who – My Generation [1965]

The Who – My Generation [1965]

Band: English
] Producer: Shel Talmy
Band Formation : Pete Townshend – Roger Daltrey – John Entwistle – Keith Moon
Billboard Position: # 74 position

60’s Hotel: The Who’s debut album is much more mythical than real. By having the name of the extraordinary song My Generation and for allegedly expressing the voice of his generation, he is enveloped in a mist of genius far greater than it is really palpable. It is composed of some good songs like the one already mentioned, plus another classic, The Kids Are Alright, and The Good’s Gone and I Do not Mind. But it does not go much further. It’s not the sophisticated, destructive, furious Who, and everything else we’ve ever heard of. It’s an English band with its 60’s pop rock, above all.

In this disc they failed to channel precisely all the energy that would make them legends of rock. It’s a good debut album, no doubt. But it’s a little smaller than they would be after. The album was not as well received in the United States as in Europe and Oceania, in several countries in Europe ‘My Generation’ was top 10, while Billboard reached only 74th position, it is not very difficult to explain, when you know better The Rock scene back then. From 65 to 69 bands that did not start psychedelia in the mid-65s, and did not make it to Flower Power in the late 1960s in the middle of Woodstock, however much they achieved expression they did not reach good positions on American Billboard. Either it fit or it would not have good marks in the American stops, something that did not correspond equally in the United Kingdom and rest of Europe. Is not very difficult to explain, when you know the Rock scene better at the time.

My Generation is and was the stated embryo of Punk Rock, as Kinks in their first album, Stooges and Iggy Pop with their album of few chords and others more.

It’s easy to imagine at a MOD party in London with several mopeds parked on the sidewalk and enjoying the track the track of this sensational record, is the perfect view and divider of a generation. ‘My Generation’ was produced in 220 volts, made to burn and electrify who hears it.
