Rock Island - Rock Island (1970)

Excellent 1970 album by this Chicago band who mixed psychedelia with acid rock. Searing guitar solos, rolling keyboard frills and multi layered harmonies all work together to create a driving urgent hard rock sound with acid tinges. "Running Through My Mind" is a particularly fine slice of extended trippy acid rock.

Rock Island is a hard rock and blues group which features the sizzling guitar of Mike Kennedy, who is a master of the "British Rock/Blues Guitar" school - Clapton, Beck, Page, but who can also sound like Mike Bloomfield or Hendrix or Deep Purple when he wants to. At times its pure WHO or Beatles, other times they sound like the Yardbirds or Moby Grape If you are tired of "Stairway to Heaven" and "White Room" , try some new 60's and 70's stuff with Rock Island.
