My grunt is more primitive than yours: Primitive Man –Animal Love vs. C.C.S. - Primitive Love



Primitive Man –Animal Love/Major Barmy From The Army –Decca F13188 (1971 UK)

C.C.S –Brother/ Primitive Love RAK Replay RR7 (1973 UK)


Animal Love is a silly but highly enjoyable entry in the simian sub Glam/Psych category. It pounds and grunts in sublime heavy fashion. Basically it’s the missing link (get it?) between Hot Legs Neanderthal Man and C.C.S.’s Primitive Love. In fact the Darwinian progression is so neat, I just had to post the C.C.S. track as well –enjoy those devilish jungle horns over the mother of all primitive stomps. Animal Love has the best grunts (and sheep noises!), but Primitive Love might be heavier and adds a more focussed bouncing gold medallion dimension to the proceedings.

Suzi Quatro's "Primitive Love" on her debut long player should not be overlooked in this call of the wild . . . Best, Peter
