Wyoming - Wyoming (1971)
The debut album from this German band.
Wyoming was really the creative vehicle of the vocalist Pete Bender. He was the son of a US pair who lived in Germany and the US army in Germany after the war.
Pete Bender were also the vocalist in the German band The Flaming Stars.
The lineup in Wyoming was hired in guitarists, drummer, organ player and bassist.
I have got their two albums and I will review the other album sometimes soon.
The music on this thirty odd minutes long album is a mix of blues, pop, rock and prog rock.
It is pretty commercial music who did not get any commercial success. Their record label was too small to really support them to commercial success.
There is a lot of piano and organs here with some guitars playing support. In the front of their sound is the bluesy vocals of Pete Bender.
The music is not too bad. It is typical music from that era. Typical pop - blues crossover music.
If that sounds tempting, check out this album.
