Heavy Balloon - 32.000 Pound 1969


Weird psychedelic rock from late 60's. Freaked and crazy, performed with electric / acoustic guitars, violin, percussion etc. A little bit in the vein of Zappa and Captain Beefheart. Heavy Balloon was not really a band in itself, but a gathering of musicians. They recorded a sole album in a New York studio.
 Album of the American team, which has long been forgotten, but not weak sang a mixture of psychedelia, hard rock, folk and heavy blues. Despite its regional status (boys based on the West Coast and there won the hearts of fans) team consisted of some pretty famous artists. Among them Notkoff Bobby, who played in different years, The Rockets, Electric Flag, and also recorded with Neil Young and Crazy Horse, and Chris Osborne, speaking in a group of Yoko Ono, as well as with the type of cult like David Peel. But the record is so rare that not even mentioned in their official biographies, the more that the project was very short-lived. However, the creativity of this band is difficult to refuse. Very rich music, solid guitar, interesting experiments with sound and peculiar sense of humor on the verge of Glum, which fully as manifested in the fact that they did to the poor "Sgt Pepper" from the repertoire of the Beatles - composition "Owed To Sgt. Pepper". Noteworthy another track named "Lead Zeppalin", not only the name of a warped, but the fact that it is one of the strongest things on the disk. By the way, here there is a good cover for written in 1966 (I think), the "I Don't Need No Doctor", Ray Charles. Rarity, rare music. I recommend to download for collection! Many thanks to adamus67 for the information.
