FREEDOM'S CHILDREN - Battle Hymn of the Broken-Hearted 1968 (60S S AFRICAN PROG PSYCH) CDFRESH
- This the debut album by Freedom's Children, originally released by EMI in 1968.
"Freedom's Children is one of the best of the hard-edged prog bands and a jewel in the South African prog crown, and is highly recommended to fans of the earlier, more intense heavy art bands." --Way To Your Soul
This album has all the wonderful excesses of early progressive rock; the deep meaningful poetry, spoken words, majestic organ-playing, sound effects, choirs, long guitar solos, etc. Ramsay MacKay's unusual Scottish/South African accent guides us through this album of contrasts.
From the country sounds of "Country Boy" to the Traffic-style rock of "Judas Queen," this album does not let up for a moment. It rocks, it soothes, it challenges, it even refreshes (thanks to the inclusion of an old Pepsi advertisement). A great album and a mind-blowing debut.
