1972 lp by a hard rock band from Florida who are kinda legendary for their song "Dead Meat", a over-15-minute opus of proto-doom metal, which appears here as the album closer. Combining sub-Cooper schlock horror stage theatrics and sub-Sabbath riffage, "Dead Meat" was Bolder (sic) Damn''s very own dumb-rock "Black To Comm" (that''s a reference to the MC5''s infamous lengthy live show-closer, although "Dead Meat" isn''t as intentionally avant-garde of course). Pretty cool, if not the holy grail that it''s advertised as (also, a la "Black To Comm")! The rest of the album preceding "Dead Meat" is decent heavy rockin'' stuff that today would be considered "stoner rock". Echoes of the James Gang, MC5 and, uh, Frijid Pink? The band broke up not long after this LP was recorded, thanks to the draft, giving "Mourning" kind of a lost classic status -- although we''re not saying it really *is* a classic, just something for connoisseurs of obscure ''70s hard/boogie rock (you know who you are).
