Do you remember the brilliant song
by the band Sweathog in the early
seventies. We happened to be in
contact with the bass player and
singer Dave Johnson. What an honour
and thanks to him we have more
information about this band and
their 2 albums they produced.
you can read more about Sweathog.
Their song Halleluja is possibly the
best oldie I have heard in many
years. It is available on the
There are so many brilliant bands
from the late sixties and early
seventies that were forgotten. In
this section we are going to look at
some of them and do a review of
their albums. The first of these
bands is : Frijid Pink.
They are best known for their cover
of the "House of the Rising Sun",
believe me there are a lot more to
them than just this one song.
Detroit hard rockers Frijid Pink
formed in 1967, originally comprised
of singer Kelly Green, guitarist
Gary Ray Thompson, bassist Tom
Harris, keyboardist Larry Zelanka
and drummer Richard Stevers. After
two years of relentless touring
throughout the southeast Michigan
area, the group — substituting
Harris for new bassist Thomas
Beaudry — signed with the Parrot
label in 1969; although their first
two singles, "Tell Me Why" and "Drivin'
Blues," failed to attract much
attention, their third effort for
the company — a distorted,
guitar-heavy interpretation of "The
House of the Rising Sun" — reached
the Top Ten on the U.S. pop charts,
becoming an even bigger hit
overseas. Frijid Pink's self-titled
debut LP followed in 1970, as did
the follow-up Defrosted; subsequent
singles including "Sing a Song for
Freedom" and "Heartbreak Hotel,"
however, failed to match earlier
successes, and after 1972's Earth
Omen the group did not re-enter the
studio until recording 1975's All
Pink Inside, disbanding soon after.

If you like the Faces, Led
Zeppelin and the Blues hard rock
sound with a touch of psychedelic
this is for you. With The
Answer and bands like Black Crowes
who created new interest in this
sound, it is always good to go back
to the roots of the sound. And
Frijid Pink is for me a better
example than Blue Cheer. They had 3
very good albums :
The last album was not that good.
Reviews will follow during this week
on the other 3 albums.
Here is a video of the band
House of the Rising Sun.
