    "Crazy, Baby, Crazy!!", was a 1971 Various Artists compilation LP released only on the Brazilian arm of Vertigo Records.
    It was part of a series of 12 individual samplers issued by the label, all visually tied together by terrific groovy pop-art cover illustrations by the late great Alain Voss, and with the album titles contained within word balloons uttered by each cover's character.
    Voss later went on to design covers for the likes of OS MUTANDES & LES VARIATIONS before becoming better known for his comic work, such as the controversial 'Heilman' character which he drew for 'Heavy Metal' magazine in the mid/late 70's.
    Although many of these Vertigo samplers were representative of just one single musical style, "Crazy, Baby, Crazy!!", boasts far more variety, running the gamut from Heavy Rock to Singer/Songwriter fare & also taking in Prog Rock, Afro-Rock & Soul across it's running time.
    Whilst this reconstructed version of the album boasts the full length versions of each song, the original vinyl featured edited versions of the tracks which were mixed so that they segued straight into one another with no gaps, meaning each side of the original LP played like one long seamless song.
    Although this was quite a cool idea in theory, some of the stylistic jumps could be quite jarring in reality and often didn't work very well.
    This idea was resurrected in 2005 by DJ ANDY VOTEL who produced a full length album entitled, "Vertigo Mixed", featuring seamless blends of original recodings by acts from the same '70's Vertigo Records roster.
    He pulled it off with far better results than those nameless pioneers had managed, but he did prove that their idea was sound even if the original execution had lacked somewhat.
    Of the artists featured on "Crazy, Baby, Crazy!!", only BLACK SABBATH & URIAH HEEP went on to become genuine stars, but there are many musical treats to be found here amongst the lesser known bands too.
    On the heavier side of things, there are sterling contributions from the Canadian/UK outfit MAY BLITZ, San Francisco's legendary BLUE CHEER & Brooklyn Proto-Metal pioneers SIR LORD BALTIMORE.
    Former DEEP PURPLE man Nick Simper also makes a good impression covering THE EASYBEATS track 'St. Louis' with his band WARHORSE, and German act LUCIFER'S FRIEND featuring Brit vocalist John Lawton, (later of Uriah Heep), open the album with the classic driving pre-'Immigrant Song' sturm-und-drang of 'Ride The Sky'.
    Of the other contributions, former JIMI HENDRIX & BAND OF GYPSIES man BUDDY MILES impresses on his lively Soul cover of OTIS REDDING's 'Wholesale Love', the horn & percussion driven Afro-Rock of ASSAGAI becomes ridiculously catchy after a few spins, and HOTLEGS, featuring 3 of the 4 members of what would become 10CC, chime in with an understated suberbly crafted slice of breezy Blues Rock too.
    As is always the case with compilation albums like this, there are a couple of tracks which just don't float my boat, but the majority of the 19 songs on the LP are most definitely a cut above, demonstrating the sheer depth & breadth of the talent that Britain's premier 'progressive' label had on their impressive roster at that time.
    With good reason, the Vertigo catalogue remains highly collectible even today, with original mint vinyl copies of some of the most sought after '70s titles changing hands for ridiculous sums in collector circles.
