Format: Audio CD
The legendary sdvertising campaign for this album featured a carichature of a pissed-off black kangaroo, standing on a pile of carnage whilst holding a smoking machine gun.

That's a pretty good visual approximation of what goes on musically in Peter Kaukonen's "Black Kangaroo."

But for every bit of balls-out, Harley-fueled riffage, there are equal parts of shimmering acoustic brilliance... Even a splash of heavy metal psychedelia.

In the 35 years or so since this album was first unleashed, its musical dexterity and variety has steadily grown a rabid cult following. And rightfully so. The meticulously crafted songs and production hold up remarkably well as this beautifully remastered, long overdue CD reissue will attest.

Prior reviews here make much of Peter's connection with the Airplane. But listeners will find this record has more in common with post-Hendrix hard rockers like Mountain, Johnny Winter or Robin Trower. (Jefferson Airplane did, in fact, cover "Up Or Down," but that version is as pale as, er well, an albino kangaroo next to this authoritative recording)

I hit on this album in 1972?? through reading a review. Loved it. Bought Artur Lee- Vindicator at same time. Unusual haunting (bluesy?)songs good (Hendrixy) style guitar. Peter is Jorma's (Jeff Airplane)brother. Worth a listen-Joey Covington on drums.Great artwork on sleeve!!
Has he done anything since?? let me know pblakey33@hotmail.com

Jorma's brother Peter offers up some decent guitar driven tunes here. Includes his own version of "Up Or Down", which was originally released by Jefferson Airplane. Worth checking out!!

A friend of mine had the record when it was first released and I loved it. Now I bought it as CD and I still love it after all these years. To all guitar players out there: get it!

This is an obscure album from an obscure artist that doesn't get his just dues. Peter Kaukonen should be mentioned in the same sentence as Jimi Hendrix. This album really rocks!
