Simple driving rock music,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Christie feat. San Bernardino and Yellow River (Audio CD)
Christie's style of music was simple, high-energy rock with country influences. Jeff Christie was their main songwriter and lead singer. They made it to number one in the UK charts with Yellow river in 1970 although it was quickly knocked off the top my Mungo Jerry's classic In the summertime. Following that success, their next single, San Bernadino, became a top ten UK hit. Any hopes that they might have a string of hits after that were quickly dispelled as they only had one other UK hit - Iron horse, which only briefly crept in at the bottom of the charts. I get the impression that Christie were more successful in Germany, where their music has been made available on CD's such as this one (unlike the UK).
In the seventies, pop and rock music became ever more complex so the simple sounds of Christie soon went out of fashion. Nevertheless, their music is highly entertaining and worthy of a place in any collection of rock oldies.

Sorry Peter, but the words "high energy rock" just make me laugh. This category would rather apply to bands like Yes, Saga, Rush, Dream Theater - just to mention a few. Christie knew only one musical direction and they did fine here: POP! Easy-listening, Abba-esque pop songs with simple chord voicings, nice sing-along melodies and harmless drumming.
