LEAFHOUND Unleashed Rare/Repertoire (2007)

Their debut 'Growers Of Mushroom' appeared 37 years ago, and is a classic and legendary album. Now singer Pete French has resurrected the name, with a largely good set here.

Since then French has worked with Atomic Rooster and Catcus, and the band here is a new young band to fit round French.

The album opens with 'One Hundred And Five Degrees', which has a touch of funk, a nice riff, a chunky rhythm, a real nod at early mid 70s American Hard Rock. The sound continues in the same vein, with French's vocals sounding good on 'Stop Look Listen'. But the strumming and acoustic moments don't work so well.

Some excellent moments alongside French's voice ' the middle break in 'Overtime', the southern feel to the intro to 'Too Many Rock'n'Roll Times', but much of the rest of the album sounds samey and dated.

Still well worth a listen though.
