Mother Earth was an eclectic American blues rock band formed in 1967 in California, fronted by Tracy Nelson. Nelson, who hailed from Madison, Wisconsin, began her career as a solo artist, but formed the Mother Earth ensemble after moving to San Francisco.
The group performed at the Fillmore West in the late 1960s alongside Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Burdon, and was included on the soundtrack to the 1968 film "Revolution".The group signed to Mercury Records, recording four albums.
"Make A Joyful Noise" released in 1969 by Mercury Records (SR -61226) and remains an overlooked classic from the Mercury catalog.
On "Make A Joyful Noise" Mother Earth neatly divided their joint appreciations for rural and urban American music, the "City Side " and the "Country Side". Some of the guest stars on this set include Boz Scaggs, Hargus Robins, Ben Keith, D.J. Fontana, and Pete Drake.I chose "What Are You Trying To Do", "I Need Your Love So Bad" and "Come On And See". Enjoy!!!
