Purple Image's eponymous and only album merged a strong blend of soul funk and psych rock to considerable effect. Released in 1970 on the obscure Map City label, Cleveland-based Purple Image sadly managed only this lone effort. Its clever use of fuzz and wah-wah guitar demonstrates a clear Hendrix influence, as does the second side's final track, "Marching To A Different Drummer," a 15-minute guitar jam extravaganza. The overall sound is tight and driving, making for a truly excellent album with some outstanding cover art. Fully remastered and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
