Kanaan -Leave It

Kanaan –Leave It/Something Inside –Kana RFM 408 (1969 US)

Texas 1969, and Kanaan deliver a short but not so sweet heavy gem. The track starts very promisingly with great throaty vocals and killer guitar over a tight earthy backing…however any semblance of a song structure is lost within the first minute as the song disintegrates into a Frank Marino-like plaything where  the guitarist’s pedals and a misplaced belief of his virtuosity are given full reign. The song does re-assemble itself for the end, but it is a shame that the tight gritty thudding didn’t extent to a second verse earlier on. The B side is an atrocious piano-led pro AOR dirge
