Taste – Taste

      Eduardo Rivadavia: ‘The fact that they, like so many late-’60s contemporaries, were molded in the image of Cream has often been cited to diminish the stature of Irish power trio Taste. But, all things being equal, it’s impossible to dismiss their fine eponymous debut based solely on obvious source of inspiration, nor, by any means, the singular talents of the band’s creative and performing focal point, vocalist and guitarist Rory Gallagher — barely 20 years of age upon its release in 1969. After opening with the menacing staccatos and power chords of the forward-looking, proto-metal classic “Blister on the Moon,” Taste turn right back around and indulge their retro-fueled Brit-blues influences with a bottleneck run through Leadbelly’s “Leavin’ Blues” — a show of contrasts that speaks volumes to the breadth of Gallagher’s instrumental versatility. … — a worthy addition to collections of this exciting period in British rock.’
