Aztec Records continues the Expanded CD reissue programme of landmark Australian albums with the classic 1972 LP from the country's original Kings of Boogie – Carson.
'Blown' arrived at a time when the Australian musical landscape was intensifying with ground-breaking albums from the likes of Chain, Spectrum, Billy Thorpe and The Aztecs, Daddy Cool, Buffalo, Country Radio etc. It was a vibrant era when Australian bands were stripping away old inhibitions and exploring their roots in order to expand their horizons.
As part of that push towards the roots of rock – the blues – Carson helped to establish the blueprint for the pub rock scene that was to follow. Recorded at the legendary T.C.S. studios in Melbourne, the album was full of dexterous, free-flowing, bluesy hard rock, with impeccable musicianship throughout.
The centrepiece is undoubtedly the high powered "A Boogie," a radically different cut from the familiar single version with a taut, razor-sharp quality to the guitar riffs. The band was known to pound this tune into the dirt for 10 minutes or more on stage, creating a monster groove in the process
