Coyote - "2 Albums" {USA} ['70/'71]

"Mid-1970s hard rock album that wastes almost seven minutes on a goof of a song called “Horney Coyote” and also includes an ode to a “Flat Chested Woman.” Even the straight hard rockers here include lyrics like “I think he’s a turd.” This would all be well and good if the novelty songs were funnier, or if they rocked, but they’re as lame musically as they are lyrically. There are also a few throwaways (including an organ-heavy instrumental). All of the above is just side one. It’s hard to imagine why anyone ever would turn the record over, but surprisingly there are some decent hard rock songs on side two. The rhythm section is solid, and the keyboardist is quite good too. The style’s a bit prog/AOR, though, and the album ends with a terrible attempt at a soul ballad. You’ve been warned. The album cover is pretty twisted, by the way. "
review taken from here. Review is for the second album, while the review says not so good,i like it overall.

I hope we don't get caught..

thanks to Greenbaum :)

Hello,
The Coyote of 1970 is one of these thousands LPs which have no real interest ; in french, we say about that music, "gros rock qui tache",
BUT,
the Coyote of 1971 is a real good surprise : it's not at all hard rock (the singer is not a howler), but, heavy style and a very interesting one with little touches of jazz, funk &, especially, with a well advised southern spirit. I'm convinced !
When a reissue of this LP ?

"Coyote" 197 (Chariot) [1]

Silly mid-1970s hard rock album that wastes almost seven minutes on a goof of a song called “Horney Coyote” and also includes an ode to a “Flat Chested Woman.” Even the straight hard rockers here include lyrics like “I think he’s a turd.” This would all be well and good if the novelty songs were funnier, or if they rocked, but they’re as lame musically as they are lyrically.

This is not to be confused with the album by Coyote on the “Old Dog” label. It’s a different hard rock band with the same name.
