BLACK PEARL "s/" - 1969

This is a top notch album! Heavy duty guitars all the way, a great vocalist, catchy tunes, fantastically groovy and soulful. Another all-time favorite of mine.

Picking a song was no easy thing to do, as all of the 9 songs on this LP are killers ("Crazy Chicken", "mr. Soul Satisfaction", "Forget It", and the mighty "Reach Up").

Check "White Devil" (I picked this one for its title...) on the player and get your kicks.
Their live album is also very recommended.
I don't come across this one very often, and mint copies are pretty hard to find. Expect to pay at least $30 for one enjoyable copy.

The only little thing I have to "complain" about is the somehow weak production that the songs don't deserve. A bigger guitar sound and more bass would have made this one an absolute killer!

ENJOY!
