Fantastic post, always liked the funky elements of the Blockheads but always assumed it was all the work of Ian Dury. I can't believe how much of this I just wasn't aware of. Thank you for bringing more information to this topic for Chaz Jankel* - Zoom. I'm truly grateful and really Chaz Jankel* - Zoom. Could you reupload this album, please?
Thank you Trying To Think Of Music - VinShu - Trying To Think Of Music advance! Post Chaz Jankel* - Zoom Comment. Tracks: What Is Happening?
If someone knows how to get any of them especially the first on CD please post to ProgArchives. These guys are more of a heavy rock band with some progressive tendencies, not really a full-fledged prog band. Think Uriah Heep with a little Wishbone Ash sprinkled on the top and you get the idea.
A few songs stand out. This is the kind of tune that would have played very well live back then and probably today for the right audiencealthough the repetitive and extended closing riff does get a bit tedious after several minutes. The members of the band all seem to have been journeymen, with most of them going on to fruitful music careers.
One of my favorite Quincy Jones tunes and his best album, by the Something Goin On (The DFA Mix) - Todd Terry - Something Goin On. In all this is a solid album, but certainly not essential.
Three stars is an accurate rating, but it would be interesting to hear this album with a decent remastering treatment and CD reissue. Recommended to early seventies heavy prog fans.
Final track s1 is the most interesting guitar wise. Side 2 changes direction slightlyafter track 1, with the orchestration dominant on the final 2 tracks. A well produced album. Chaz Jankel sang and played keyboards and guitars on this. The A-side features some wonderful tunes spilling over with great vocal harmonies and winsome melodies.

This resulted in their second album, "Seasons Changing.
Chaz was not pleased with the new direction, and left the band he would end up backing Ian Drury. Chaz Jankel* - Zoom toiled on their own for a while, even pressing another album, that was unfortunately never available for sale. They toured, and continued to draw crowds. In they played their last show where they started, at the Roundhouse. After that, it was time to call it quits. Riekels Q: What did you do when you left school?
CHAZ: "Folk-rock, which was becoming a bit of a bone of contention, really. I was much more into soul. I remember one gig… I was convinced I was a soul brother.
I had this outfit hand-made in a little boutique off Carnaby Street. It was sleeveless with white satin flares and red satin inserts. CHAZ: "Yeah! It would have been fine if we were all into that kit, but the rest of the band were wearing jeans and had long hair. CHAZ: "Slightly perplexed, really. Eventually, we parted ways. Ian Durywho has died of cancer aged 57, was one of few true originals of the English music scene, the only man to successfully combine the energy and excitement of rock 'n' roll and funk with the bawdy humour, wit and home-spun philosophy of music-hall and of his native Essex.
The man responsible was born in Harrow. His father was a bus-driver Borracho - Various - Calentito Calentito later a chauffeur, who split up with his university-educated mother soon after the war.

During the recording sessions, Jankel's musical sophistication, along with Dury's earthy delivery and a skilled backing band, resulted in a formula that was to produce some of the singer's biggest hits.
In August ofDury released his first solo record, "Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll," a single that became the definitive statement on the rock 'n' roll lifestyle that also appeared on New Boots and Panties, released in November. Widely hailed as a brilliant debut LP, New Boots and Panties demonstrated Dury's talent for writing punchy couplets and music-hall parodies "Billericay Dickie" and "Clever Trevor"showing his street smarts and rougher edge "Blockheads" and "Plaistow Patricia"and creating the ultimate rock tribute "Sweet Gene Vincent".
The album went gold, reaching number five on the United Kingdom charts thanks in large part to a punishing touring schedule. However, audiences in America met The Blockheads--decidedly a very British band--with a mixed reception.

Whether clad as a pearly king, prince of darkness, used car salesman, or a cockney wildman, Dury commanded Love Light - DJ Ensamble - Trancing Queen.
