Kin Ping Meh - Kin Ping Meh 3 (1973)
The third album from this German band.
Kin Ping Meh was quite a cult group in the first half of the 1970s. Their four albums made quite an impact.
The band was a six piece on this album with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, drums, bass and English vocals. They indeed had an Englishman on vocals in the form of Geoff Harrisson. A good, raunchy vocalist.
The vocals partly explains the hard rocking, raunchy music on the first half of this album. Hard rock which is dipping into rockabilly and good old 1950s rock'n'roll at times. The first half of this album has got this 1950s feel. Which is funny, but not so good music.
The music changes to a much more psychedelic and prog rock phase on the second half of the album. The side B on this LP. There is some The Beatles over this part of the album too. A pretty good second half of the album. A bit messy, but still pretty good.
Unfortunate, this does not make this a good album. I am not at all happy about this album. It is a decent enough album. But it has not survived the the test of time, I am afraid. Anyway, check out this album. You may disagree with me.
