Reseña de álbum

Josefus have continued to remain on the fringes of rock greatness since their late-'60s and early-'70s flash-fire of regional popularity. Highly Zeppelin derivative, the band did nonetheless have a unique trajectory — something in that Houston water for sure — that married the plodding British blues with a healthy dose of Texas swagger. Their chunky, downtempo dirges had a little funk on them and reflected the blues-boogie zeitgeist that was at work on other up and coming Texas bands of the period (Johnny and Edgar Winter, Bubble Puppy, 13th Floor Elevators and the pre-ZZ Top excursions of Billy Gibbons, Frank Beard, and Dusty Hill). Unlike some of those artists, Josefus never made the big time in a commercial sense.

Josefus was one of the first American bands to bridge late-'60s hard rock with early-'70s heavy metal. Their two albums, both released in 1970, were extremely influenced by early Led Zeppelin, and to a lesser degree other heavy British and American rock groups from the end of the '60s. Blues-rock formed much of the base; Pete Bailey's high tortured vocals owed much to the Robert Plant school, and the songs were built around crunching riffs. But the songs and riffs, mostly in a downbeat foreboding...
