Wild Child - Polydor 1973
"Wild Child" contains some of Savage Rose`s most powerful recordings and features impressive vocals by Annisette. The opening title track is a terrific soul-rock recording with Annisette in front - a standout! "Stewball Was so Tired" is jazzy up-beat track - again with Annisette in top-form.
After a short instrumental track follows next highlight "Madhouse Wedding" - strong melody and powerful performance!
Equally strong is "Ain`t My Baby Beautiful" - a melancholy ballad which is, as the title indicates; just beautiful! "Tarantula" is rather short instrumental - a little like "Stewball Was So Tired". "The Shoeshine Boy is Dead" is a little difficult to get into - not one of my favourites! "Screams Of Captured Birds" which closes the album, is a fine blues-soul tune.
Like all the early Savage Rose albums; this is a great album, with standouts in "Wild Child", "Madhouse Wedding" and "Ain`t My Baby Beautiful"
