LEAF HOUND - GROWERS OF MUSHROOM (1971)



I don't know a heck of a lot about Leaf Hound, except that they were around in the late 60's to early 70's, their album is highly sought after by record collector/hipster types, and members of the group went on to join Free, Atomic Rooster, and, er... um... Foghat. They play some really kick-ass, bluesy, psychedelic hard rock, which I am totally down with, but the record's best feature, really, is that goddamn COVER. I mean, look at that shit.

DAMN.

You know I go ape for the obscure harder pysch shit but I just can't get into these dudes. Too derivative, too many blatant Zep-isms. I would totally have liked to smoke some rat weed these hop heads but I don't want to listen to their music.

Fair enough. Personally, I'm content to just set the album cover as my desktop and stare at it in silence for hours on end.

To each his own.

I love this album and personally I don't really hear any'Zep-isms' myself, but then again I pretty much only ever play II from them and that may be why.

Good share regardless.
