U.S. APPLE CORPS - Let the music take your mind 1976
Heavy xian soulful guitar rock band. More loud intense soulful hard rockin’ on this tougher-to-find follow-up. A new male singer takes over most of the lead vocals, pouring it on with a fervency equal to his female predecessor. And while their debut (S/T from 1970) was strictly standards, Let The Music Take Your Mind is comprised mostly of original material. The music is both heavier and more diverse, including some blues-rock moves on the gospelly ‘That’s What My Man Is For’ and the throbbing slow burner ‘Closer To The Man’. The flames rage outta control on the Southern-styled ‘Dead’ featuring slamming triple guitar action. ‘Get High On Jesus’ was also covered on the mega-rare Earthen Vessel monster. Wild colorful psychedelic praying-hands-cross-Afro-head cover. Original sealed copies on PLANTATION Records from 1976 (although the album seems to be from 1970 like their second single on SSS and shelved till 1976).
