The Easybeats' second album was an Australia-only release that only got out elsewhere 27 years later. It was vaguely similar in spots to the band's first -- many of the songs, particularly the hits "Women" and "Sad and Lonely and Blue," were heavily influenced by 1964-vintage Merseybeat groups. Those songs are somewhat deceptive, however, for the group was stretching out stylistically on much of It's 2 Easy. Sharing space with bright, heavily harmonized numbers like "Let Me Be" and "You Are the Light" is a string of songs integrating elements of blues, folk, and even a certain novelty feel, similar to the work of the Kinks. "Come and See Her" and "I'll Find Somebody to Take Your Place" abandon those Beatlesesque melodies in favor of dissonances and a punk attitude. Featuring some gloriously crisp and slashing lead guitar over pleasantly crunchy rhythm playing, "Easy as Can Be" is a catchy, loud, fiercely posturing declaration of lust that could almost pass for a piece of American garage rock. Most of this album is a respectable piece of mainstream rock & roll, inspired and full of surprises. With the addition of 11 more songs, the original LP has been expanded to 25 tracks and 62 minutes' running time. The added tunes are an uneven lot, derived from various singles, B-sides, and other sources. Some of it is rather lugubrious, but none of it detracts from the value of the original album, which remains one of the best bodies of music in the late British invasion style ever produced.

British blues boom, cronaca di una rivoluzione

Se Joe Bonamassa ritornò con British Blues Explosion, un anno dopo Blue And Lonesome dei Rolling Stones, fu perché il boom del blues inglese si rivelò essere qualcosa di più di una semplice moda... Più che una semplice tendenza musicale, l'interesse di una giovane generazione per le grandi icone del blues americano, ignorate nella loro terra, generò un'autentica rivoluzione guidata da tre principali agitatori: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck e Jimmy Page, considerati oltre la Manica, niente meno che la Santissima Trinità della storia del rock o della chitarra. Sebbene non fossero gli unici musicisti coinvolti, fu attraverso le loro rispettive carriere che si scoprì che il blues, lungi dall'essere una musica che aveva passato la sua data di scadenza, era come un salto verso altre dimensioni musicali che avrebbe permesso molteplici innovazioni.

Philly Sound, il funk si mette in ghingheri

Né Motown né Stax! Il soul di Philadelphia proporrà una terza voce tutta sua. Escogitato dalla coppia Kenny Gamble e Leon Huff, questo genere precursore della disco fa ballare l’America di inizio anni ’70 ricoprendola di seta e di champagne.

Frank Zappa, per il meglio e per una risata

Frank Zappa se ne andò il 4 dicembre 1993, ma più gli anni passano e più la sua assenza si fa sentire in maniera crudele nel panorama musicale attuale. Non che sia stato dimenticato, no, è che si cerca invano qualcuno che possa pretendere di uguagliarlo. Il genio cosmico e comico di Frank Zappa non ha equivalenti al giorno d’oggi, perché nessuno, dopo quasi tre decenni, è stato capace, come lui, di coniugare la maggior eccellenza musicale con un humour assolutamente disinibito.
