Rock/Psychedelic Rock: Maypole - The Real 1971 (2005 Gear Fab)

The album offers a lot of rock sounds, but always with a great feeling for melody. I think the band was a bit ahead of their time with this album. Of course they used all the ingredients that were common in their time, but they didn't do this at random.

The album sounded very modern for its time. The band consisted of excellent musicians and they knew how to use their skills skilfully. I like the album very much because it is very rocky and never forgets the essence of a song: expression and feeling. You can read the history of the band in the booklet, written by Dennis Tobell, co founder of the band. Enjoy.(Frank)
