We'd never come across Orient Express before, one of the rare rock-oriented acts on the Mainsteam jazz label in the late 60s and 70s – but after a spin of this super rare hybrid of heavy psychedelic rock, HUGE percussion and electric Eastern string effects we're hooked! The group mixes heavy use of the electric sitar Danelectro started producing at the time, layering it with equally trippy turns on electric oud, melodica and minitar. It's full of heavy tribal percussive pounding, and good old fashioned hard rock – which makes for one of the trippiest arse whompins' we've had in a while! Amazing stuff, especially if you're willing to indulge a nice big dose of heavy psych rock along with your big drum breaks and beats. The Eastern vibe seems to more or less be a shtick with these guys – which would be annoying ONLY if the results weren't so hot! Tracks include "Fruit Of The Desert", "Layla", "Birds Of India", "Train To Bombay", "Caravan Of Silk", "Azaar", "Cobra Fever", "A Little Star" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sea Ders
Groovie, Late 60s. New Copy
A great record with all the known recordings of the Sea-Ders (or Cedars) – a beat combo from mid-to-late 60s Lebanon – and a pretty much perfect mix of period rock & roll hooks and rhythms with Middle Eastern string buzz in place of a Stratocaster! The vocals are in English and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
