CD Reviews

Psychadelic Blues heavy fusion
Artur Antonio Fonseca Costa | Porto, Portugal | 09/21/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I can only say what heart tells me. I have this record since 1972 and even today I listen to it with emotion. "Bye Bye Blues", "I'll never be lonely" are simply marvelous. The guitar solos are unique, the drums are stunning, voice was never repeated and bass is good. I wonder why so few people bought this LP back them. All the music is unique! It's all."
Turn on the defroster ...
Lance Ritchlin | Denver | 09/13/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"With this puppy available on CD, I won't have to scour downtown Denver anymore, looking for used eight-track players. This band deserved more success than it received but failed to "brand" itself. (Forgive the marketing terminology. What can I say -- I sold out YEARS ago.) Ironically, the popularity of Frigid Pink's first hit, House of the Rising Sun, was probably the first step toward the band's undoing. It established the Pinksters as a cover band without their own identity. The best cut on this, their follow-up album, is Pain in My Heart, which seems to be incorrectly listed as Pain in My Head. Wonderful, straight-up rock with few surprises."
Frijid Pink - 'Defrosted' (Repertoire)
Mike Reed | USA | 11/11/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Originally released in 1970, as this was the band's follow-up to their self-titled album (see my review). Some say Frijid Pink SHOULD have been a huge success. Tracks here that I dug the most were "Black Lace", the common-sounding "Sing A Song For Freedom" (you'll SWEAR you've heard another band perform this song, but it's certainly not a cover), the lengthy eight-minute "Pain In My Heart" and "I Haven't Got The Time". Thought 'Defrosted' was more in the hard rock vein, and maybe less psych than the first lp. This CD reissue has four(4) bonus cuts tagged on, that didn't do much for me. They've just got too much of a definite soul 'vibe' to it. Still, the original album is somewhat of a keeper."
