Milt Matthews Inc For The People


And said fuzz is well-integrated. So, to the music. This concoction was, I believe I never tried it! The mind boggles at how much quality music never got a hearing. Music is sometimes the same.

Post a Comment. Some old recordings are rare for a reason. When I was a kid in the 70s, like lots of other boys my age, I collected beer cans. And we quickly learned some basic tenets of the hobby.

Aesthetics aside, the fact remained that since those suds were cheap and popular, the cans could be found everywhere. This concoction was, I believe I never tried it! In all likelihood it was as awful as it sounds. Music is sometimes the same. But there are other cases. To further riff on the beer can metaphor, some regional products were quite good, but failed due to distribution problems. Which, finally, brings me to an album by Milt Matthews Inc.

Originally released on the tiny Catalyst label in the USA, this second album by the group sank in the marketplace with nary a trace. For reasons having mostly to do with the uniqueness and quality of the sides therein, UK label Ember licensed the album for re-release in England.

They slapped new cover artwork on it — nothing special, but superior to the original — and put it out in It sank without a trace. The mind boggles at how much quality music never got a hearing. So, to the music. At its core, the music on For the People is soul of the turn-of-the-decade variety, but the arrangements are richly informed by the best trends of the era.

But the vacuum-tone leads all over the song owe more to acid-rock and psychedelia than to the Beale Street Blues Boy. This reviewer votes for the former.

The strings and the lead guitar fills play effectively off one another, creating a head-nodding groove. The fuzz is laid on more thickly than was the wont of, say, Steve Cropper.

But a soulful female chorus moves the song closer to the sort of thing Isaac Hayes did so well. In there was still a lot of cross-fertilization going on in music. A singer in the Otis Redding style like Milt Mathews could imbibe the best influences of acts like Blind Faith and apply those influences to his own sound. Fuzz and wah add to the festivities with a long, searing solo. Postscript: These days Milt Matthews is doing some good work of another sort. Check it out. With a background in marketing and advertising, Bill Kopp got his professional start writing for Trouser Press.

After a stint as Editor-in-chief for a national music magazine, Bill launched Musoscribe in , and has published new content every business day since then and every single day since The interviews, essays, and reviews on Musoscribe reflect Bill's keen interest in American musical forms, most notably rock, jazz, and soul. His work features a special emphasis on reissues and vinyl. Bill's work also appears in many other outlets both online and in print.

He also researches and authors liner notes for album reissues, and co-produced a reissue of jazz legend Julian "Cannonball" Adderley's final album. It sank without a trace. Tags: fantastic voyage.

While that funk-jangle-chunka-chunk so popular on soul albums of the day is omnipresent, there is also an awful lot of fuzz guitar on the album. And said fuzz is well-integrated. Milt Matthews wrote some strong tunes, but in some ways the most interesting numbers on the disc are the covers.
