The Jack Hammond Group - A Fatal Beauty. 1982 USA

From Chicago comes The Jack Hammond Group, an inventive fusion band. On the double LP A Fatal Beauty, the album opens with a fantastic sequence of tracks, lead by guitarist Hammond, which is ultimately based in progressive rock, including a side long epic as found on Side 2 (of 4). Side 3 finds the group experimenting with many disparate styles (classical, blues, and funk primarily). Then they close strong on the final cut with the addition of horns. A solid album throughout, and a great find for US private press seekers. The cover is also quite suitably creepy.
