Original release 1969
Re-issue 2004 New Music-Green Tree / CMP
Reissue of this rare 1969 album by American blues/jazz band Raven that's similar to the Band, B.B. King and John Mayhall. Features the epic composition "Bad News" and the superb blues rocker opener "Feelin' Good". Good driving underground progressive blues rock.
Musicians: Gary Mallaber, James Frank Calire, John Weitz, Tony Salla & Thomas J. Calandra.
Like Poe's bird, Raven is surrounded by spiritual ties... Five musicians who have found themselves through their music and continually search for the complexity of sounds through simplistic roots. I've only know the men who call themselves Raven for a very brieftime, yet, through their music and their minds, I've known them now and forever more.
