Glory - A Meat Music Sampler (1969)





Excellent late '60s Texas psych/rock album by a certain Linden Hudson. A studio project with blues leanings it's a stoned ramble with a laid back feel and countercultural sex-and-drugs lyrics.

This has caught some attention of late but should be considered an aquired taste only. The basic feel is of late-night spontaneous blues-based studio jams revolving around main guy Linden Hudson who sings, plays percussion and also coordinated the session, which was partly recorded at Andrus Studios of "Easter Everywhere" fame. A rootsy Southern all-night bar feel evolves with a certain appeal, but the tracks are really hit and miss affairs, for example the vocal riffs on "Wish ta heck" are so annoying I can barely listen to it. Despite trying hard Hudson isn't good enough a vocalist to make it memorable, though jazzy wee hours keyboard improvs add the right touch. There isn't much songwriting to talk of, more like excursions from basic mood riffs.
