The roots of the American group Fate dates back to 1963 when Maine was formed group The Electrons, amending later name to The Nomads, The Id (under this name they released even one single), and ultimately on The Euphoria's Id (under which the band released their next single, and years later, in 2003, a compilation collecting all the recordings the group, entitled "Mastering the Art of French Kissing"). The team consisted of keyboardist Jay Snyder (born. Sneider), drummer Skip Smith, singer / guitarist Jimmy Drown, bassist Terry Drown, and saxophonist David Wakefield. In 1967, Snyder and Smith decided to form a new band, which they called Fate. Composition fulfilled vocalist Frank Youngblood, guitarist Steve Dore, and bassist Art Webster.

In 1968, in New York, the musicians recorded their only material. The recordings were sent to radio stations and soon the group received a proposal to release the album on a small label Musicor. However, it was rejected by the production company Elephant 5, with whom the band collaborated. More offers did not come, and disappointed they had decided to go their separate ways and hearing about them missing. At least until 1999, when the American label Rockadelic released album "Sgt. Death" in the limited, red vinyl. It contained all the recordings, which the team has made during that session. In Europe the album was released on compact disc, German label Shadoks. Title and order of the songs was the same as on the album Rockadelic, but was changed to cover.

From the very beginning of the album "Sgt. Death" sounds like a lost work of The Doors - sound bodies Jay Snyder is the same as in Ray Manzarka and vocalist Frank Youngblood, not only sings in the style of Jim Morrison, but the tone of voice is very similar. Some of the songs could easily hit the recorded at the same time, "Waiting for the Sun" (especially "Simone"). The only difference is the presence of bass (very clear indeed), and on a bigger role guitars - if Robby Krieger in some songs of The Doors show his skills as a soloist, as Steve Dore doing it in almost every piece (shapely solos played in catchy "Sergeant Death" and the somewhat dreary ballad "Mannequin"). Sometimes it happens that the keys suffer as a result ("Sexual Fantasy"). On the other hand, here is a song, but rather a miniature, which is actually a solo show of keyboardist ("Having a Cigarette"). Almost any song does not go below a certain level (the exception is dismal "I Need a Woman").

Do not forget the lyrics - songs were created during the war in Vietnam, which is why the opposition against the war, fear and anxiety are the dominant theme of the album. By "Sgt. Death" leaves little to be desired, but no fan of psychedelic rock should not be disappointed with this material.

Thx, my friend :) good job!!!
