referencing Tonton Macoute, LP, Album, NE 4, NE4
I remember years ago being told the Spring and Indian Summer albums were the only worthwhile albums on the Neon label. There's a lot of other interesting and worthwhile stuff on the label. Obvious he hadn't tried Raw Material's Time Is... or Tonton Macoute. Many of the other titles were jazz or maybe not to everyone's definition of prog. I have to say, even if the Tonton Macoute album is a little uneven, it's still a great example of jazzy prog rock. "Just Like Stone" isn't my favorite, it has a strangely American feel to it, reminding me a tad of Gravy Train's "Alone in Georgia" (itself never a favorite of mine from A Ballad of a Peaceful Man). I can't believe how much better "Don't Make Me Cry" is. Nice organ work from Paul French, and great jazzy arrangements. "Dreams" is extremely out of place on this album, but I am still blown away by it, an amazing piece of late '60s psychedelia, and it's 1971, but it sounds more 1968 than '71. "You Make My Jelly Roll" is an awful song title name, but what you have here is a jazz piece, it might be a bit too close to cocktail lounge jazz for some, but I still like it. "Natural High" is a two parter, and is more proggy, but with some jazzy arrangements. I like how Paul French plays some Bach on his electric piano making me think of Martin Kitkat (keyboardist for Gracious!) playing Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" on the first Gracious! album on "The Dream". I really have a hard time to compare these guys to. It's easy to say Soft Machine or Colosseum to just about any jazzy UK prog band of the time, but honestly they don't remind me of those groups or anyone particular. I don't know if you'll like the whole album, but there's still great stuff to recommend.
