January Tyme “First Time From Memphis” 1970 US Psych Rock










January Tyme “First Time From Memphis” 1970 US Psych Rock
full
January Tyme was a New York band formed around the in-your-face vocal work of Janis Joplin-wannabe January Tyme. The band consisted of Tyme on lead vocals, keyboards, and percussion; Anthony Izzo on vocals and lead guitar; William Brancaccio on rhythm guitar, vocals, and keyboards; Steve Ciantro on bass; and Allen Cooley on drums and vocals. In 1969 the band released their only album for the Enterprise label, titled First Time from Memphis. Falling somewhere between Jefferson Airplane and Big Brother and the Holding Company style of music, the band failed to establish their own identity. Despite their songwriting competence and energetic performance on the 11 songs on this album, January Tyme faded into rock obscurity…..by…..Keith Pettipas….

“First Time From Memphis” (the ‘Memphis’ reference in the title might imply deep soul or similar), it’s thoroughly enjoyable and should satisfy anyone with a penchant for the more rocking side of the Airplane. 
by Richard Falk …… 

This kind of thing is done all the time. January Tyme sounds a little like Janis Joplin and you could toss a little Jefferson Airplane from their 1967-1971 outstanding run. 
Here is where comparisons end. This project sinks under the weight of it’s mediocre material. It’s not even good enough to be a tribute record. One can get the whole story by looking at January Tyne on the back cover. …..
