Any fans of this good ol' band from Texas? Bloodrock had some great tunes, great musicianship and oft' times twisted lyrics. They had two phases from the S/T to U.S.A. they were a blues based rock band with a psychadelic edge and from Passage to Unspoken Words they were in the vein of Jethro Tull (which lost a lot of fans). I like both inceptions and the only album I lack is the aforementioned Unspoken Words which is available on a 2-Disc set entitled Tryptich also featuring Passage & Whirlwind Tongues.

I guess no one is a fan? I'm at home where I can only get sucky dial-up so tomorrow at work I'll youtube a couple of videos and post them.

Honestly, this is a band that I've heard of but never actually heard. I'll check out that clip later this evening when I have access to Youtube.

Cheater is my fave Bloodrock song especially b/c it has a thick-ass bass tone, and that's one thing I like about this band.

D.O.A. is their most popular and is definitely morbid!

I tried to find some vids on youtube of their "Tull" era but to no avail so I recommend the songs Scotsman and It's Gonna Be Love for their Yes meets prog era Ambrosia sound.

Bloodrock is really an awesome band, I hadn't heard of em' till Tokesta passed me some and then realized I had heard some of there stuff without ever hearing about them, think my dad had some, I had a comp album with D.O.A on it so that was the only song I had ever heard that I remembered. But they are a great band and I'd say quickly became a fav of mine, thanks Tokesta. Allso love that Rutledge solo album even though it's not so Bloodrocky.

I see the name alot but have yet to listen to them. I actually had them confused with Bloodgood til I listened to these samples here. Now that I know it's a different band, I'll delve into them further.

The only one that actually played was "Cheater", the other ones got taken down by youtube. Pretty good song, I like it better when it gets uptempo though, the bass is the best part of the song. Was surprised to see they were from Texas.

Yeah, the bass is the best part. There's a certasin connection between they and Sab and Bakerloo hence the thick ass bass.
