.The Roar Of Mama Lion Lynn Carey
.In 1973 record stores all over the world were hanging posters to promote a new record called “Preserve Wildlife” by a new, up and coming band: Mama Lion..

.On that poster was what was to become one of the most contraversial album covers in the history of rock and roll! It showed beautiful blonde lead singer Lynn Carey breast feeding a lion cub. Like most classic album covers, this one is still copied by many artists and strangely enough many of them still get censored !..Luckily the record inside the jacket was not overlooked and what everyone heard while still staring at the cover art was one of the most powerful woman singers in rock history as well. Helping to pave the way for other woman rock singers like Ann Wilson, etc. and proving that you can have a great voice and still pack a wallop on top of it! But Lynn Carey’s career doesn’t start with singing in front of a band in the 70’s. Her career goes way back to her early teens, acting for various TV shows and movies before joining up and recording with various bands. Catching the eye of Penthouse Magazine owner Bob Guccione, Lynn was asked to be December’s 1972 pet of the month. Lynn took Guccione up on his offer as long as she would also be able to promote her new band Mama Lion. I got the chance to meet and talk with Lynn about her career, her life, and her music.

Gracias por este álbum que creía perdido en las brumas del tiempo y del olvido. Posteos como éste merecen todo el reconocimiento y la disposición a corresponder de alguna manera, ustedes sólo digan cómo.
