Looking like something reissued by Akarma (but creeping out on Polydor), Kin Ping Meh’s self-titled 1971 effort is dripping with Deep Purple-esque organ and guitar, as well as a healthy dose of CSN&Y vocal harmonies. Like many B-list or C-list rock outfits of the period, Kin Ping Meh were adept, but lacking that extra ooomph that would have pulled them out of obscurity. The rockin’ numbers were by-the-book chuggers, save for the somewhat exceptional “Everything” and though they did delve into proggy, string-laden sprawlers on occasion (“My Dove”), most of the album’s content is simply adequate and marginally derivative of the heavier hitting acts of the early ’70s.
