- Is Jesse Harper by Doug Jerebine
1 review. Write a review for us »
The legend of Jesse Harper lives on. Or should I say, the legend of Doug Jerebine who was also known as Jesse Harper lives on. This New Zealand guitar slayer was touted as the next big thing, back in the late '60s, but events conspired to shut the door in the face of this promising talent. Well, when I say events I mean things like walking out of recording contract meetings because the head of the label offered whiskey and cigars to celebrate a potential deal...as a member of the Hare Krishnas, he found this act to be offensive, so off he trotted. Or the time when he thought some record company executives were “A bit too much like Mafioso” and refused to put pen to paper. Well, it trumps calling your sister in the middle of the night to come and get you because you're at a zebra crossing and you cant get across to the other side because you're afraid of black and white (come back Nick Drake ..we forgive you!!!). Tragi-comic tales aside Doug Jerebine's debut album is one for fans of classic rock acts like Cream, Hendrix (obviously!) and mebbe 10 Years After or summat like Randy Holden. It's full to the brim with MASSIVE BLAZING GUITAR RIFFS and copious amounts of psychedelic song structures. Also it turns out that Mr. Jerebine is one hell of a sitar playah. He incorporates this instrument into a number of compositions and it lends a very cosmic feel to this lost classic. Comes with revealing liner notes about the man himself. a rock album that should find a home in any classic rock fans collection...
