Jeronimo biography
Jeronimo was founded in 1969 and in '69/'70 they had their first two hits "He Ya" and "Na Na Hey Hey". With these two chartbreakers, Jeronimo climbed to the number 1 position in almost all European countries.

In 1970 Jeronimo and "Steppenwolf" toured successfully through Germany and in the same year Jeronimo partook in the legendary "Progressive Pop Festival" in Cologne. Following that, Jeronimo shared the headlines with such groups as "Deep Purple" and "Golden Earring" at various European open-air festivals.

In 1970, Jeronimo, together with Creedence Clearwater, presented the album "Spirit Orgaszmus", which was a success throughout all of Europe.

After 30 years and millions of records sold worldwide, Jeronimo is still cult. In 1999/2000, their hits "Na Na Hey Hey" and "He Ya" were re-released on numerous hit-compilations.

The CD's "Cosmic Blues", "Time Ride" and "Best of" have been available in record stores since 1991.

After numerous negotiations with "the purple record-company" in Frankfurt, Ringo Funk successfully acquired the rights to all of Jeronimo's songs in November of 2000.

In the spring of 2002, 4 new CD's "Jeronimo", "Cosmic Blues", "Time Ride" and "Best of" will be released, which have been digitally mastered from the original recordings. There will be a bonus track on each of the CD's (partially with previously unreleased material).

3 stars Third album from 1972 named Time ride with a nice cover art is to me less intresting then previous one. While is not bad, specially the first half of the album is more then ok, the rest is quite bland and unintresting to say the least, is sounding like the members lost the pelasure to writte consistent hard rock pieces and concentrated on mid tempo vocal orientaed tunes with not much to offer, no more that great guitar riffs and solid bass lines. The title track is great keeping the same attitude as on Jeronimo, but Sunshine or Indian River for example are forgetable at best, with boring parts. Well ,ending this review saying that this band released some decent albums in their short meteoric career, with a plus on Jeronimo from 1971 by far their best album. Time ride is for me a 2.5 rounded to 3 stars, but only this time around.

4 stars Jeronimo a heavy psych/hard rock band from Germany and their second album selftitled from 1971 from their short career. This is an excellent heavy psych album with hard rock arrangements dominated by Michael Koch guitar and impressive bass chops from Gunnar Schäfer. I really like it alot, is very enjoyble with plenty of memorable passages, all pieces has balls delivering top notch performance. For that period early '70 Jeronimo had some prolific live performance touring with Deep Purple or Golden Earring, being one of the most well known german band from that period. This selftitled album offers good hard rock riffing, excellent bass lines like on Silence of the night, simply excellent bass here and good vocal passages, very much fiting in the music offered. Quite lesser known today even all 3 albums were released on CD, this one comes in a very nice brown colored digipack issued by Second battle label in late '90's. Solid sound, good compositions from this trio, nice ideas, what else an album to have in your collection, I like what I've heared here a lot and because of that 4 stars easy, for sure their best album from the 3 released before disbanding in late 1972. They had a brief reunion in 2001 but gone unnoticed by larger public. Recommended a nice slice of heavy psych meets hard rock.

Review by Joćo Paulo

4 stars Nice album of this Germany band. A bit of Hard Rock in Zeppelin vein in some parts but much more sensitive in other's. Good arrangements of guitar and bass made a progressive context because is not a comercial music and this album was made in the begining of 1971. Good sound in record of this nice work. The lirics are in English but the voice is not espectacular but balanced for this work. The drums have a nice work with a good drum player. I like this album and it's a good adiction of Germany rock collection of 70 décade. If you like a bit of hard rock with some good guitar parts, you like this album. I give 4 stars for this good work

Review by Certif1ed

2 stars Here we Go!!

Kicking off like a cross between Cream and the Kinks, with maybe a dash of Hawkwind, News is an energetic tour-de-force of magnificently tight and heavy rifferama. The gruff baritone vocals with constant backing harmony flow like gravel-line treacle over riffs with balls and drums like Keith Moon on fire. Spoiled only slightly by lame pentatonic noodly soloing, this is a cracking song.

A heavy piano-driven riff propels The Key through what should be, by rights, a lugubrious slog - but instead turns out to be the obligatory slow number that follows the fast opener in a standard heavy rock opus extolling the virtues of music. Here, the vocalist unleashes a coarse, whiskey-soaked, yet soulful and impassioned bluesy vocal that is compelling.

The 3rd track is, true to tradition, filler. Still in the heavy vein, the happy side of Jefferson Airplane that jumps out of Hands, flowing over the riff to Silver Machine (released 2 years later) is OK, in a Beatles-ish sort of way, but not what I was set up to expect from the opening track - I was rather hoping for a continuation of a darker sound.

So Nice To Know is better - the minor key driven by the piano has the right bluesy and soulful feel to it, with a good'n'heavy edge. All of a sudden, though, it goes off on one - and despite the slightly happy overtones, this really rocks. The instrumental burn-out is another surprise, rather simple, but a fine ending (if cut off too soon).

The next track is a cover of the Steam original, made famous in the 1980s by Bananarama (what credentials!), with a cool, heavy twist - wonderful bass and drum work that give a superb headbanging groove, and some really soulful vocals, worthy of Spooky Tooth (whose 2nd album of 2 years earlier) the style reminds me of very strongly). This took Jeronimo to #1 in the singles chart in some parts of Europe.

Another cover follows, Let The Sunshine In, from the musical Hair, sadly feeling like another piece of filler - it's nicely performed, and I'd rather listen to this than the 5th Dimension original...

The guitar tone and snarl on Highjack really had me sitting to attention, though - more menacing than Black Sabbath, there is pure essence of Heavy Metal running through this song - with the high-pitched screams giving a feel of a heavier (yes, you read right - heavier) pre-Painkiller Judas Priest. This is a song for all metal fans to hear and relish in.

This renewed onslaught of quality material seems to continue with the intense intro to number 5, which sadly fails to live up to the intro.

The rhythm guitar tone is sooo heavy for the time - but that's the most interesting thing about this song until it hits the instrumental section and the changes begin. The final tempo change is masterly, with fine double bass drum work and great rhythmic improv. Sadly, this section lacks melody - but I find the rhythms so engaging and intense that frankly I don't need melody here. Cosmic stuff, indeed.

No, No, No is not a cover of the Deep Purple song, but another original with some nice synchronised vocal/guitar duetting over a rather derived Led Zeppelin style riff.

Never Goin' Back shows the band neing rather undecided in direction, sounding like a Rolling Stones cover, with a small dash of Creedence.

The Light Live Needs is another complete stylistic U-turn, with a strong Abbey Road feel underneath the Dylan-esque vocals - very well written and executed, with a fun two-guitar duet section, it's quite clear which market this song was written for. The boogie-woogie outro is cut off well before it has a chance to get anywhere near its prime and gives a tantalising insight into just how good this band might have been live.

The album closes with another hit single He Ya, which I find rather annoying, but your mileage may vary.

In summary, an inconsistent, but generally high quality 1970s rock album right from the beginning of the decade (so there are still some strong psychedelics in here), which generally stays on the heavy side, with occasional forays into the REALLY heavy. All the really interesting stuff is faded out, though, clearly in the interests of making a pop/rock album - and to file this under Kosmische/Kraut Rock (as some do!) is downright misleading.

It's not an album that I would see as being of any interest whatsoever to a dedicated Prog-Head, but to anyone who remotely enjoys heavy music, there are one or two pieces here that are real gems - I would go as far as to say essential and enlightening listening - and heavy enough in places to rival anything released prior to Metallica. It certainly deserves its cult status, and the high price tag on an original vinyl pressing.

I therefore reluctantly award 2 stars - it's an album with truly terrific moments, and well worth a listen - elsewhere this would probably get a 4 from me. But it's for collectors and fans of decent heavy metal or hard rock (and people who understand the difference!), not Prog.

As far as Progressive Rock is concerned, you'd find at least as much on Metallica... :o)
