There are two sides of good music on this Josefus LP Dead Man.
The one song really makes having this album worthwhile is the seventeen
minute and twenty-nine second title track.
I went to the bands website briefly and they stated on the homepage
how they were surprised with the continuing popularity of their music.
I am not. They played with a lot of energy and sweat. Cranking out
good vibes with hard rocking fuzz and psychedelic tunes was part of
their makeup and design as a well-known Texas rock band.
The sound on the album is quite good, and considering all the different
formats available in CD, it stands up quite well. I can only imagine
what one of their concerts was like picture a sea of hippies tripping
out and guys in jeans and t-shirts guzzling down beers while women
danced, bumped and grinded their way through the night. This kind
of music probably worked people into a state of frenetic energy. They
reminded me fondly of hard rocking and hard working bands like Grand Funk.
Music this good always has a place in my collection; it does not pull
any punches. This is rockin music that barrels in straight attcha
like a speeding bullet now, that is my kind of band.
