The Jack Hammond Group “A Fatal Beauty” 1982 US Private Prog Rock: 2 LP`s
full
From Chicago comes The Jack Hammond Group, an inventive fusion band. On the double LP "A Fatal Beauty", the album opens with a fantastic sequence of tracks, lead by guitarist Jack Hammond, which is ultimately based in progressive rock, including a side long epic as found on Side 2 (of 4). Side 3 finds the group experimenting with many disparate styles (for example - classical, blues and funk). Then they close strong on the final cut with the additional of horns. A solid album throughout, and a great find for US private press seekers (technically the label for the album is Fatal Beauty Records). The cover is also quite suitably creepy.....by...ashratom .........

A rocking, rollicking prog album from the virtually unknown rural US crew, this is a hard cry from the tired, dull, lifeless drivel that the big names of the genre were producing by the early 1980s. Like I said elsewhere, trends never die, they just move away from the mainstream into the grey area of private pressings and continue to thrive there...........
