Ro Ro "Meet At The Water" 1972

Competent, slightly melancholy-tinged country-rock in the vein of Bronco, Cochise, Moonrider, Quicksand and Quiver, to name but a few, although at times comparisons to Lindisfarne also wouldn’t be out of place – especially on the singalong title track, which closes vinyl side A! The vocalist possessed the kind of soulful, low-register throaty voice that marked the works of period Dutch popsters The Shoes (Van Es) and The Tee Set (Peter Tetteroo).

Melancholic, minor-key acoustic guitar instrumentals such as “Mandala” add a bit of variety to an otherwise pretty straight-laced period country-rock piece.

Vocalist/guitarist Alan Ross and bassist Warwick Rose formed the core of the band – hence the name Ro-Ro. Alan later formed his own band Ross which recorded two excellent mellow funk-rock albums for RSO that were not unlike the works of Tommy Bolin in the mid-70s.

John Weider had, of course, played with Eric Burdon and the Animals, Family, Stud and Moonrider.
