BODO MOLITOR "Hits Internacionales" [CD, Digi-Sleeve]
1969 - Rock from Mexico
An absolutely stellar psychedelic rock album from Bodo Molitor. A German rock 'n' roller who relocated to Mexico, he's backed here by an excellent group of Mexican musicians and together they cut this fuzz-drenched Technicolor masterpiece in 1969. The songs are significantly enhanced by fantastic organ-playing courtesy of Jorge Rene Gonzalez and Bodo's vocals are great, raspy, and brooding, often bearing a resemblance to Jim Morrison. The record includes several awesome covers like "When I Was Seventeen" done in a brilliant, sort of creepy psychedelic style. Bodo designed the album's cover himself and also created some other very groovy psychedelic cover art, such as the self-titled album by the Mexican group Kaleidoscope. This eccentric and wonderful album most certainly deserves a place in your collection! This reissue adds four bonus tracks: a cover of "Hello, I Love You" and instrumental versions of three of the album's tracks. Songs include "Sookie Sookie," "Real Real," "She's a Woman," "You Don't Know," "St. James Infirmary," "I Wish I Knew How," "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," "Laziness," "The Midnight Hour," and more.
