Shampoo, Belgium

Shampoo - Volume 1. 1971 Motors.

In my personal favorite style of jazzy psych prog. In the same genre as "Hot Rats" era Zappa, Moving Gelatine Plates, Xhol Caravan and Mad Curry. Plenty of sophisticated ensemble work, with energetic solos (love the electric sax work) and psychedelic dreamy vocals. Not all is a success (opening psych track, overlong drum solo on Side 2), but still worthy of attention. Very much a product of a much missed period in music history. Beautiful, but simple, day-glo pink gatefold cover. Would make for a nice Japanese mini-LP. Bootlegs exist.

Priority: 2
