Captain Beyond - s/t (1972 - progressive hard rock: BOC, Groundhogs, Stray)

Captain Beyond - Captain Beyond Singer Rod Evans (formally of Deep Purple), guitarist Larry "Rhino" Rheinhardt, bassist Lee Dorman (both from Iron Butterfly), and drummer Bobby Caldwell (from the Johnny Winters group) give you some indication of what this band will sound like - hard rock with a progressive complex song structure and strong musical dynamic.

What the fuck does that mean you ask? It means that I'm too lazy to do much work on this one. Pretty hard-rocking most all the way through, but in a pretty mainstream Blue Oyster Cult sort of way. If your really into popular classic hard rock, then you'll dig this (sort of reminds me of the Groundhogs who I posted before), but if your looking for heavier numb-skull dirges you'll have to look else where.

I got this from a friend of mine and it was with the special hologram cover. Wowie Zowie, now that's rock and roll.

- overview quickly slapped together by denez.

You could buy this album here at Amazon, but I'd suggest you don't support that corporate media whore, and instead support a different corporate media whore by buying from ebay - get it on vinyl here!!

hey, I hope you could find New Race's First and the last, if you don't (I haven't read any comment about getting it or whatever so...) I found it easily in eMule, in eDonkey Server nÂș 2, there are mostly things in Spanish in that server.
This can be quite unuseful, but I cant find the ed2k link.

hey... just stumbled across this site and I'm always happy to read the work of another MassHole. As for Captain Beyond, ever since I stole, er, borrowed a copy from my cousins ca. '75, this has been a favorite album of all time. I mean, the savagery of the two songs that close side one, "Mesmerization Eclipse" and "Raging River Of Fear" still kick my butt just as hard as when I was 15. Hell, even the "suites" work. A bit of trivia--Tesco Vee had a song called "Big Giant Cock" on the "Gonzo Hate Vibe" album and that totally nicked the riff to CB's "Can't Feel Nothin'" Tesco even admitted it. Cool site!
