Biografía

Quoting Damon Runyon on both the back cover and inside the gate fold, Brief Replies warns «Do not sweet-talk me sweet-talker, for I am no stranger…» Music that was too literate for the time, the second album from Ten Wheel Drive emerged as Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin were making their exits in 1970. «Pulse» was intended to be the opening track, and it would have been a great one, but despite being listed that way on the back cover, it is actually the third band on the vinyl’s first side, and is evidence that sequencing is so key. «Morning Much Better» opens the album without the sledgehammer blues of this Genya Ravan/Michael Zager funk/rock dirge. It is explosive without the Top 40 appeal of Blood, Sweat and Tears. Going further down the road of complete artistry, «Come Live With Me» pulls away from the big band sound, leaving the authors — Genya Ravan on a wailing harp and voice alone with co-writerAram Schefrin’s guitar. The thing about Ten Wheel Drive is their defiance to what was considered conventional at the time. Each song on all three of their long players, those on the 1969 debut Construction #1, and the polished gems from 1971’s effort with Alice in Wonderland cartoons on the cover, Peculiar Friends (are better than no friends at all) break down barriers and stretch the formats of the day. They reached their pinnacle with a cover of the Ragavoy/Weiss masterpiece, «Stay With Me.

    True, 1-DeR. It's one of those bands that is not underrated, it's simply unrated. Any Big Brother/Janis Joplin fan would love this, but most of them will never hear of Ten Wheel Drive or Genya. Such a shame.

    Genya Ravan.... one of the best of the unknown vocalists and in Construction #1 she is GOLD. What an amazing album filled with beautiful melodies, riffs & solos and Genya's delivered passion is on some extraterrestrial-shit! ...if the world only knew!
