Boiled In Lead

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Boiled In Lead - From The Ladle To The Grave From The Ladle To The Grave
Pop Used - LP ATR 1104 Atomic Theory
1989 Original. “The Group's First Album With Anders On Drums Proved To Be The Catalyst For Turning What Was Already A Strong, Multifaceted Group Into A Flat-Out Amazing One. Bringing Not Merely Good Skills But An Encyclopedic Knowledge Of Many World Music Traditions To The Group, He Helps Fire The Quartet Up On A Series Of Brilliant Performances. The Opening Track "The Pinch Of Snuff" Might Initially Have Raised Warning Signals, With A Steady Hard Rock Punch Seemingly The Furthest Thing From Bil's Folk Roots. However, The Electric Mandolin Soon Changes That Impression, And By The Time Everything Speeds Up, Tin Whistle And Fiddle Played Like The Devil, It's Clear Bil Are In Full Effect And Out To Slay The House Once Again. Menton's Lightly But Not Stereotypically Celtic-Inflected Vocals Add To The Show, But Ladle's Many Instrumental Performances Do The Business Just Fine. Perhaps The Most Striking Thing About Bil Is How Its Many Fusions Never Feel Forced, A Quality Shown In Spades Throughout The Album. Combinations Range From "Cuz Mapfumo," At Once A Tribute To East African Musician Thomas Mapfumo And Celtic-American Performer Cuz Teahen, To "Stop! Stop! Stop!," A Giddily Entertaining Romp Through The Old Hollies Hit Mixed With A Traditional Egyptian Song. Perhaps Appropriately, The Band Weaves Its Political And Social Commentary Roots As Skillfully Into Its Songs As Its Musical Inspirations, Never Sounding Preachy At The Expense Of Entertainment. "My Son John" Makes For A Fierce Ending, Dedicated To An Anti-Military Protestor Horrifically Injured In The Course Of His Work, While "The Microorganism" Is A Catchy Yet Still Affecting Caution Regarding AIDS.” - Ned Raggett, AMG... more details
