I'm A Freak Baby 3- A Further Journey Through British Heavy Psych And Hard Rock Scene 68-73 - 3CD
3 CdFollowing the success of the first two volumes of the series "I'm A Freak Baby", Grapefruit returns with a third instalment of pioneering hard rock sounds from the nascent British underground. As with its predecessors, "I'm A Freak Baby 3" includes many of the acts who were synonymous with the stoner, free festival element of the English counterculture, with key tracks from such seminal underground stalwarts as Mick Farren and The Deviants, Edgar Broughton Band, Pink Fairies and Hawkwind.
Also included are musicians and bands who were honing their sound before finding huge success: the embryonic Deep Purple, the teenage Free, first album Thin Lizzy, Lemmy (fronting Sam Gopal) and a pre-fame Mott The Hoople are joined by old-stagers The Yardbirds, represented by an incendiary 1968 live version of "Dazed And Confused". Many of the featured bands, however, wouldn't even get as far as attracting record company interest. Completed by a handful of one-shots and previously unreleased tracks, "I'm A Freak Baby 3" is another essential window on a burgeoning movement that would go on to establish a musical revolution.
