The Edgar Winter Group – Frankenstein

First Hit #1: May 26, 1973

This is unexpectedly badass, a crunchy rock instrumental which sounds significantly harder than most of the other songs that show up here. That said, while it demonstrates a certain virtuosity with various instruments, especially the lengthy drum solo, it also seems frustratingly incomplete, almost as though it’s the start of a song rather than something intended solely as an instrumental. It demands a bare minimum of the human instrument, even some oohs would probably push it over the edge and complete the sound. It’s right on the edge of being amazing, so it becomes slightly disappointing that it’s merely really good.
