Casa de discuri: Repertoire
As this fascinating 1970 album shows, Black Widow was far more
sophisticated and musically advanced than contemporaries Black Sabbath.
Strongly influenced by jazz, their imaginative songs are enhanced by the
extensive use of flute, saxophone, organ and clarinet. The group from
the English Midlands comprised Jim Gannon (lead guitar), Zoot Taylor
(organ, piano), Kip Trever (vocals), Clive Jones (flute, sax, clarinet),
Bob Bond (bass guitar) and Clive Box (drums). Gannon composed all the
tunes featured on this debut album, with its controversial Black Magic
theme. It was engineered by Queen producer Roy Thomas Baker. ‘Sacrifice’
provides a grand finale and their best-known stage number, ‘Come To The
Sabbat’ is included as a bonus track.
