Background
Normally I'm quite partial to obscure releases from 1975 and thereabouts. Usually the albums I pick up have some redeeming features. However, upon picking up this album I'd long been waiting for, I wondered why I bothered. Jinx is an album that has no highlights and quite a few low-lights. The singer Larry Alexander is absolutely appalling and the music is dire. Recorded in Alabama through the height of the Muscle Shoals scene, these guys should not have been let loose in a studio.


The Songs
Kicking off with a cover of Credence Clearwater Revival's 'Produ Mary', this borders on garbage. Totally. I scrolled through the remainder of the tracks pretty quickly after that, and I'm afraid none of them caught on. What a waste of space and time. Initially I was hoping for some Poco inspired goodness, but not to be.


In Summary
All I can say about Jinx, is they are aptly named. No record label should've touched this band, it's terrible terrible stuff. Please remove off your wants list if you still have an entry for this band hanging around.

I've seen this many times on eBAY and have toyed with the blind buy pick up, but wasn't quite sure. Thanks for confirming to not take the plunge.
