Pirana, Australia

Pirana - s/t. 1971 Harvest.
Pirana - II. 1972 Harvest.

Australia's answer to 1969-71 era Santana, and a pretty good attempt with excellent guitar and organ leads. Tribal percussion, impassioned vocals and a solid pop sensibility help reinforce this comparison. First album has a little too much percussion, and can drag at times. Second album is a gem, and one I'm finally glad I bought as an original vinyl (incredible gatefold cover!). Both albums listed on Aztec's coming soon list, and should be considered welcome additions to any early 70s collection.

Priority: 2
