Steamhammer - Reflection (1969)

The debut album from this British band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of bass, drums, guitars, harmonica and vocals.
Two guest musicians helped out with flute and piano too.

Another title on this album is Steamhammer, btw. It is the same album with the same songs.

As the band name may tell you, this is a band who played some pretty hard music. And that is correct.

The band comes up with some rather standard blues on this album. Blues with some hard rock influences. A good reference is the Led Zeppelin debut album.

The difference is that Led Zeppelin was a many country miles better band than Steamhammer and their songs were in another league than the songs on Reflection.

Steamhammer has a good vocalist and the guitars too are good. The flutes also adds value to these songs.

This is still not a bad album. The first one of four studio albums and you will soon find reviews of the three other albums too.

This is a decent half an hour long blues-rock album and nothing more than that.
