Five from the Masters Apprentices

Another week where Australia lost a classic rocker – this time Jim Keays from the Masters Apprentices. Formed in the mid 60’s the ban recorded some absolute classic rock tunes. Here are my favourite 5.

1. Because I Love You – who can forget ‘Do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be, yeah’ An immortal line of ever there was one. his song never fails to hit where it should hit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxCneDlLANM

2. Turn Up Your Radio – a change of pace here. So turn up your radio and blast your ears. Great guitar work, great riff, great voice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apX_ikzc5CE

3. Undecided – another great upbeat song. A little of Beatles influence perhaps, but great guitar riff (again). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnMytzzcRGI&index=3&list=RD852wTT42aDQ

4. Our Friend Owsley Stanley III – this is great example of early 70s rock. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiSK0xTDA0U&list=RD852wTT42aDQ&index=5

5. 5.10 Man – a bit of bluesy rock from the late 60s. The Masters Apprentices never fail to deliver on the guitar riff, rock track. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EX6hFKGyed0

Cheers
