Emergency - No Compromise (1974)
The fourth and final album from this German band.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of guitars, bass, mellotron, flute, saxophone, percussion, drums, keyboards, piano and vocals.
The band was one of the many pretty obscure German bands from the 1970s. Thanx to ProgArchives, Youtube and other blogs, these bands has got a second wind in their sails. That though long after the band were disbanded and some of the members had passed away.
In many cases, bands like these are more popular now than when they were trying to make a living by touring and releasing albums. The irony of life......
I am not sure if any of the members from Emergency has passed away or how they are today.
The band signs off with a pretty powerful mix of soul, blues, fusion and psych rock.
There is a lot of tangents and saxophones here with flutes and guitars also contributing to this forty minutes long album.
The vocals are really good and the album has a lot of life and love of life. It has a bit of a party feel too.
There is some half-decent details here too on an album that has a mix of decent and good songs. This is an album well worth checking out from a band who deserve your attention.
