Fusion - Border Town (USA 1969)

An Uncle Roddus Album Review

Quite probably my favorite album found in that little bookshop that I mentioned in the previous post and most fortunately another one I have finally found on CD. This awesome late 60s showstopper is another fabulous Blues/Rock/Jazz/Fusion set with Beefheartian overtones, inflicted by the singer, who sounds a little like the captain himself. Every song is awesome, with no duds and plenty stylistic changes to keep it interesting. Stand out tracks include the wonderfully bluesy "Struttin' Down Mainstreet", which really sets the pace for the rest of the album, the very catchy "One More Hand" and the very Jazzy finale of "Erebus"
A Classic LP, still sounding fantastic after 40 odd years. Rating 5/5
