Bloodrock - s/t 1970

Formed in Fort Worth, Texas in 1963 under the name The Naturals, they released their first single in 1965, "Hey Girl" b/w "I want you" (Rebel). Shortly thereafter they changed their name to Crowd + 1 and released three more singles.
In 1967, guitarist Dean Parks left the band to become the musical director of The Sonny & Cher Show (the beginning of a long career as a session musician). In 1969, they changed their name to Bloodrock at the suggestion of Grand Funk's manager/producer Terry Knight. Knight produced Bloodrock (Capitol). The album was released in 1970 and peaked at 160 on the Top 200 Chart. An extensive career followed, with 6 additional albums released before 1974 (we'll have to get to them later...) Bloodrock dissolved in 1977. Not too much of a critique hear, as they were fairly popular. Form your own, I've always loved this bands work.
