The Flamin' Groovies - Flamingo (1970 great us rock 'n' roll - Big Beat 1990 edition with bonus tracks - Wave)


Flamingo is The Flamin' Groovies' second studio album, released in 1970. Following their departure from the Epic record label, it was the first of their two albums for Kama Sutra.
Flamingo is one of the greatest rock n roll records released ever! No question about it. Ranks at the top with Pet Sounds, Super Session (look it up, yuppie morons), Who's Next, Kind of Blue and Love it to Death as some of the best music released ever. The Flamin' Groovies are truly, along with The Dictators, unsung heroes of Rock and Roll. If you can appreciate great music, get it! (By R.Isherwood )
