The quality of the recordings differs, but is mostly very nice and authentic on a higher volume in the living room. If you are not able to find an official used copy, the good news is that the record is available as an mp3 download via Caves, the Ollie Halsall Archive. What I'm hoping to achieve here is to find a way to fund my current comic project and then offer some perks on the side to keep things hot and spicy. That includes the first officially sanctioned released of Monkey's Bum, the quality of which is going to be a big improvement over the various bootleg releases! Much better are the Patto originals: the laid back You, You Point Your Finger although an unusual choice to kick things off is played in fine style. I also carry a good range of Slot Car Books and Slot Car Magazines.

On top of this they had the benefit of the powerful and gritty vocals of Mike Patto who was an excellent vocalist in the classic rock tradition; another under appreciated talent. The vocals of Mike Patto are among the better of it's day and it makes one wonder why this record wasn't picked up by the mainstream rock audiance. First and foremost your support is what allows me to do the things I do and the better the funds the higher quality of the work I can post here while balancing my weekly commission quota. Contrasts continue until we get some nice guitar work after 3 minutes. This happens again 4 minutes in. It starts off as what sounds like an ode to a mother and then develops into perverse territory. Should get some hate mail over this one but I really don't get the appeal and no they shouldn't have been more popular than they were.

The record has amazing musicianship. Red Glow is an album highlight and another powerful rock moment. The song might be back-to-basics British blues, but it still beats most of what passes for popular music on the radio these days. Loud Green Song is a powerhouse of a rock song and features some of the wildest guitar work on any Patto album with an over the top solo. Although the albums are now available individually Sense Of The Absurd gives the buyer an opportunity to get their eponymous debut and Hold Your Fire, presented here on two discs in the original running order with the addition of some welcome bonus tracks which are worthy of inclusion.

The vocals and calm take over at this point. This is an early-access patreon! I specialize in digital art of the furry and anthropomorphic variety but you'll occasionally find other fandoms here as well. It's a shame this album didn't receive better treatment at the time and received an official release as it's a strong record. On drums John Halsey and bassist Clive Griffiths made up a fine rhythm section that could play it straight in the more rocky moments or follow the subtle twists and turns of Halsall's complex jazz excursions with ease. It's a four-minute-long album highlight. Patton had nothing but good to say about Bradley, until Bradley was promoted over Patton's head, whereupon Patton savaged Bradley in his diary. Either way, the last four minutes is a return to some sense of normality for the standard double-four-time British blues formula to be heard on earlier songs.

Karl Malden's Omar Bradley is shown in an almost father-like role; he sees and recognizes Patton's immense talents as a general, and uses them in spite of Patton's natural ability to antagonize everybody around him. The songs are just vehicles for shamelessly exposing their musicality and interplay, without ever feeling forced or stern. Magic Door is perhaps the best of the three. Side plots also speak of Patton's numerous faults such his temper and tendency toward insubordination, faults that would prevent him from becoming the lead American general in the Normandy Invasion as well as to his being relieved as Occupation Commander of Germany. Patto's music was an adventurous blend of rock and jazz with a bit of blues thrown in now and then for good measure. The cool jazz-pop of 'Government Man' is possibly the best indicator of group's prediliction for combining catchy-choruses with proggy guitar-jazz, if not for the song's slight commercial potential that comes in the form of a catchy chorus built upon solid rock foundations, then for the crisp guitar-and-bass interplay that bristles with a funky gusto that gives 'Government Man' a unique, low-slung vibe. My Days Are Numbered makes a great opener.

Patto have stormed onto the Jazz-Rock stage in impressive style with this powerful bluesy debut which packs a mighty punch! But to those whose minds could not stand the horrible strain that war imposed on them, he was merciless; he could not comprehend the fact that other people didn't share his love of violence for violence' sake. The album gets off to a great start with the slow build of The Man. With Muff Winwood as producer, they recorded their first album live in studio in an attempt to capture the raw virtuosity of Ollie Halsall's guitar playing and Mike Patto's voice, the latter having a voice between Rod Stewart and Paul Rodgers. But specifically, by supporting me you of course are helping me make a living. Posted Saturday, July 16, 2016 Review 1587835 Patto - st 1970 Often listed as progressive rock, I would rather call it an early hard rock record with jazz influences and very inventive rock musicianship.
