Snowy White is one of a handful of classic blues-orientated British electric guitar players - musicians whose sound, technique and style has echoed the originality of the blues with the excitement of contemporary rock. As well as his solo career, which included the huge international hit Bird Of Paradise, Snowy has toured and recorded with Pink Floyd, Thin Lizzy and many more rock legends. He has previously released a number of well received and commercially successful albums as a solo artist and with his band the White Flames. Realistic is a 2011 recording from Snowy and The White Flames, an album that will delight his small army of followers and all fans of great guitar alike.
Essential: a masterpiece of Rock music
Having barely managed to coexist for even half a decade at the tail end of the post-Beatles rock explosion, there is little wonder that the delightfully obscure work of New York’s Sir Lord Baltimore is yet a question mark for the vast majority of heavy metal’s legions. But for those who have experienced both albums, that question mark most surely has been replaced by an exclamation point; the other bands of that era and hemisphere like Iron Butterfly, Blue Cheer, and Mountain barely hold a candle to the SLB’s raging wildfire take on rock ‘n’ roll extremity.
Tony Joe White, the original swamp rocker, continues to garner critical acclaim; his songwriting skills have only sharpened over the years and he remains a potent force. It was by combining country, rock and funky blue-eyed soul for his 1969 Top 10 Hit 'Polk Salad Annie' that White established his credentials. His album Dangerous was released Columbia Records in 1983, which featured the country hits 'The Lady in My Life' and 'We Belong Together'.
Along time ago, I bought this LP from “The Moody Blues”, because it appears the original single “Nights In White Satin”.
