CD Reviews

The genius of Lee Baker
McCarthy Salisbury | Queensbury, New York United States | 01/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lee Baker is the greatest guitarist you have never heard of. Here is your chance. Listen to Baker alternate between fuzzy,funk blues riffing,slippery slide and stinging leads. Beale Street summer of love. Moloch is a collection of notorious Memphis musicians. Blues filtered through blotter acid. The original version of "Going Down" is here. Yes, the very same song Jeff Beck/Freddie King etc covered.Before you smugly ask,yes,Baker is the equal to Beck. He's that good. Ask Jim Dickinson. Ask Alex Chilton. Smell the psycho daisies and buy this disc."
Great slice of 70s blues rock
Virgil | Chapel Hill, NC | 12/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Largely unknown and very difficult to find this album is well worth a listen. As far as I know its the only album the band had ever cut, I'd found the disc in a bin for about a dollar a few years back. I finally listened to the thing a few days ago and what a great surprise. A whole album of great guitar blues-rock with a touch of Memphis and hard rock edges to the songs. It's highly reminiscent of Rory Gallagher, Cream and Grand Funk if the latter had a better musical talent and were from Memphis. On that note the musicianship is a notch or two higher than I'd expected, especially the great guitarist.

A real find if you're a fan of great blues-rock or hard-rock from the early 70s."
