Julie Driscoll, BrianAuger, & The Trinity —
Streetnoise ... CD Atlantic/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ...
Out Of Stock
Some great funky grooves by this legendary British ensemble – featuring excellent keyboard work by BrianAuger, recorded during the period when he was really beginning to stretch out a bit, and hit a much more open-ended kind of sound. Julie Driscoll is still on vocals, singing in her raw sound, but Brian's Trinity group gets a fair number of nice instrumental moments on the set – which are greatly appreciated! The CD brings together all the tracks from the original double LP – and titles include "Light My Fire", "Czechoslovakia", "Finally Found You Out", "In Search Of The Sun", "Ellis Island", "I've Got Life", and "Save The Country".

Julie's come a long way from her years with BrianAuger here – stepping out in a freer sound that marks the shift in the British scene from beat group grooving to jazz-rock jamming. The session features a host of likely suspects – including Keith Tippett, Elton Dean, Brian Godding, Nick Evans, and Chris Spedding – and Julie's vocal style is finely tuned to match the craft of the players on the set. She's a lot more open-ended in her singing, with less of the R&B inspired approaches of the late 60s, and more of the expansive vocalizations that were showing up in the work of other European vocalists of the 70s. Titles include "Leaving It All Behind", "Break-Out", "A New Awakening", "Walk Down", and "I Nearly Forgot – But I Went Back". CD
