Crystal Image “Sure Feelin’ Loose” 1976 + "Crystal Image II Rock And Roll" 2011 US Psych Hard Rock

Crystal Image “Sure Feelin’ Loose” 1976 US Private Psych Hard Rock

Rare 1976 Original Still In Shrink Wrap. Appears Unplayed. John Gentile, Bass Guitar And Vocals; Mark Erardi, Drums; John Coveet, Guitar And Vocals; Bill Stevens, Violin Synthesizer; Dusty Rhoads, Vocals. Includes “Midnight Porno Flick.” “The Band’s Final Album, And Their Hardest To Find, Sees Dusty Rhoads Restricted To Backing Vocals And Reduced To The Status Of An Associate Member. From A Musical Standpoint, This Is Probably Their Best LP: The Opening Jam Is Superb, With Some Virtuosic Bass Playing, And The Subsequent Songs Are No Slouches Either, Sometimes Putting Me In Mind Of Led Zeppelin.” Richard Falk….

Crystal Image "Crystal Image II  Rock And Roll" 2011 CD US Psych Rock

The very rare original pressing of the second LP by CRYSTAL IMAGE, “Rock And Roll” (also known as “The Rainbow Album”), released in 1975 on the private Dream label and very hard to find. Some portions of this LP were recorded live at Tracy, California. A Lodi, California-based rural psych outfit whose LPs were released in quantities of just 500 or so, and much sought-after by collectors. Reissue of the very much sought after 2nd ‘74 album by West Coast USA band Crystal Image, know to the collectors world as 'The Rainbow Album’, release privatly. Fantastic fuzz driven west coast psychedelia, but also very groovy almost funky sections. This CD contains all of the Rainbow Album + 5 bonus tracks taken from the 1st album.Great 1975 hard rock album by this US band who started in the late '50’s and flowered in the early '70’s producing a powerful guitar based rock with biting lead breaks male/female vocal harmonies. The group performed with a huge lightshow and this mid '70’s release captures the energy of the times.They supported such bands as Quicksilver, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and many other, now legendary former local acts. Their music was in the vein of Jefferson Airplane, just sometimes even heavier with fantastic fuzz wah-wah guitars.“
