Kim Fowley - Animal God Of The Street (1971)



Another re-up in tribute. See below for details. Catch here.

Between the Outrageous-Good Clean Fun period (in 1968-69) and the I'm Bad-International Heroes one (in 1972-73), it seems Kim Fowley tried to release unsuccessfully 2 albums. One in 1970 called The Day The Earth Stood Still, and released only in Sweden, and another one never released, but Kim Fowley sent to Marc Zermati some songs that the latter issued on this album (in 1974) called Animal God Of The Streets. Maybe these songs were not really intended to feature on an LP, difficult to say. Unfortunately, 3 songs are common to both LPs ("Night of the Hunter", "Long Live Rock And Roll" and "Is America Dead?", these 3 being more in their context in "The Day The Earth Stood Still" than here). Actually, the 6 other songs are more Beefheart meets the Velvet in a garageland that true Kim. But we love Kim whatever style he's doing. So this one is lovable. The cover sleeve is the one that was on the first original vinyl pressing of the LP (in France). But the songs are ripped from CD.

Sorry, this message isn't about Kim. I just couldn't see how to post a general comment on the site!

Anyway, I was wondering if there was a way to obtain larger (higher res.) pictures of the beautiful vinyl ladies and their records?

I think I'm in love ;-)
