“Upon the Earth” (Janus) 1969
Illustration formed ranks when blues-rock outfits (with powerful horn sections comprised of funky White men) became a standard. While their sound is reminiscent of a post-Al Kooper Blood, Sweat & Tears, it’s the opening cut on the LP that stand them apart. “Upon the Earth” is a fierce onslaught of horns vs. drums that will please both music connoisseurs and samplers alike.
