Goliath UK

The eponymous 1970 one-off LP from England’s Goliath delivered jagged, propulsive blues (or is that ‘jump’ blues) rock with shards of brass and metal, played with a contrapuntal intensity which alternately empowers and submits to the tough and salacious belting of Linda Rothwell, perhaps the most sexually aggressive (and demanding) British female singer of her generation. I’d like to say that this album was ahead of its time, yet only one later band, Fusion Orchestra, seemed to have picked up the gauntlet laid down by this frantically intertwined unit.
