Flamin Groovies: Flamingo [Kama Sutra, 1970]
The mix and the groove are fierce enough to accommodate "Keep a Knockin'," "Comin After Me" is worthy of Chuck Berry, and "Second Cousin" could have been written for Jerry Lee Lewis, which makes a trinity. I do miss the wacked-out head of such Supersnazz classics as "Laurie Did It" and "The First One's Free," but the fifteen minutes expanded on the last three cuts are a bigger problem--even the fast one drags. Sophisticated r&r primitivists are supposed to know about that stuff.
