4 stars One of the Motor City's finest ensembles, Frijid Pink broke loose with their highly anticipated first full- length LP in 1970. From the powerful opener "God Gave Me You" to the hard drivin' I Want to Be Your Lover", the band's sonic assault was as inspiring as it was relentless. With a sound dominated by fuzz guitar courtesy of Gary Ray Thompson, powerhouse drumming by Richard Stevens, and the sincerity of the pain in Kelly Green's vocals, Frijid Pink carry on the maximum volume tradition of their Detroit peers such as MC5, the Stooges, and the Amboy Dukes. If you love the blues, Frijid Pink delivers with "I'm On My Way", "End of the Line", "Drivin' Blues", and "Boozin' Blues". Able to handle myriad styles from fast driving boogie to slow brooding blues, Kelly Green sounds like a more soulful version of Burton Cummings. Among the other highllights on this LP include their surprise Top 10 version of "House of the Rising Sun", which was quite a psychedelic take on such a classic song. Bonus tracks on the reissue CD include a high energy cover of "Heartbreak Hotel" and the anthemic "Music for the People". This is indeed a highly recommended piece of Detroit rock history, and I gladly give it 4 stars.
