Tucky Buzzard

Tucky Buzzard - Buzzard! - 1973 - Purple

The great British hard rock band Tucky Buzzard are almost forgotten now. The band only lasted from 1969 to 1973, but they recorded five good studio albums. Dave Brown, Nick Graham, and Terry Taylor had all previously played in The End, a British psychedelic rock band during the sixties who had backed Elkie Brooks, and acted as a support band for the Rolling Stones. The End gradually evolved into Tucky Buzzard, with Bill Wyman producing all the band's albums. 'Bo-Bo's Hampton' is a great track which mellows in the middle and ends with some very good guitar work. 'Hanging On In There' is a great Southern rock influenced track, and 'Super Boy Rock'n'Roller 73' is a good old fashioned Rock'N'Roll track with great brass arrangements. But really, there's not a dud track on this album. The album still retains a psychedelic rock touch with some Alexis Korner-esque vocals. The album posted here is @ 320 Kbps. N.B: The 1974 US Passport label LP omitted the track, "Who Do You Love". Try and listen to TB's "Coming on Again" album, and if you can find it, The End's "Introspection" album. The End's very rare "The Last Word" album covers rare recordings from 1969 and early 1970 and is also worth hearing
