Murphy Blend - First Loss (1971)

The one and only album from this German band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, cemballo, grand piano, organ and vocals.

This band came and went again during a short period of time. They left this album behind them. It is quite a popular album too, forty years later.

The music is pretty heavy with some classical music pieces. It is kind of a bluesy, heavy ELP with a lot of krautrock influences.

The music is pretty much krautrock. 

There are some pretty heavy use of organs here and the band is clearly obsessed by classical music. 

The vocals are pretty good and bluesy. The band rocks hard at times.

The songs are decent to good. Their forays into classical music gives this album it's own identity. It is a pity that this band did not release more albums.

This is a decent to good album.

2.5 points
