Music: The Crazy World of Arthur Brown GYPSY VOODOO / Rosemary Clooney & Perez Prado A TOUCH OF TABASCO
The Crazy World of Arthur Brown GYPSY VOODOO
A new (2019) record from the “I am the god of hell fire… and I bring you fire!” guy from The Sixties. The record is very ‘been there, done that’ in that the proceedings all feel TOO familiar. The guitar player is solid, but the rest of the band only serviceable. Of course, a remake of “Fire” is here and it’s pretty much what you expect: as solid as a song you’ve been playing for fifty gets. This would be a great record for a local band, but… Brown spends far too much time making an all-you-can-eat buffet of things. Overall, sufficient… just not exceptional.
Rosemary Clooney & Perez Prado A TASTE OF TABASCO
The great samba summit; SUCH a great combo! Full disclosure: I LOVE this record! Both performers are in top form and song choice is spot on. PERFECT for housecleaning, picnicking, or upbeat social gatherings. Perfection!!!
