4 stars Kin Ping Meh - st (1971)

'Soul is dead', stated Embryo on it's debut album in 1970. Yet fellow Germans Kin Ping Meh might have proved them wrong with their pleasant eclectic rock debut. The band has a well produced and professional sound that is actually very English. On their debut Kin Ping Meh plays a mix of styles, which makes it an interesting album to listen to for the seventies rock/psych fan. Double heavy rock guitars, perfect Hammond sound, soulful approach on some tracks and some winks towards symphonic and psychedelic rock. The artwork looks great on my vinyl reprint.

'Fairy-tales', 'Don't you know' and 'Everything' are typical heavy rock tracks reminding me a bit of Uriah Heep and the like. Riff-based rock with organ runs and expressive vocals. Yet in combination with the other tracks everything works pretty well. 'Sometime' is a great minor blues track (got to love those guitars), 'Too Many People' is a nice bluesy soul track with a 'get together and sing along feel', Drugson's Trip has some nice space rock moments, whilst 'My Dove' a nice melodic symphonic track (mellotron alert) that reminds me of the best of Barclay James Harvest. My favorite is still the last track 'My future', a brilliant acoustic soultrack with perfect hippie vibes. It reminds me a bit of the never ending pleasure I get from a track like Canned Heat's 'Going up the Country'.

Conclusion. A typical product of it's time, but just very good at it. Four stars and recommended to fans of eclectic seventies rock and people who like a bit of soul in their music.
