A Valentines gift to you, from Sister Midnight. A heartfelt 2019 cover of Coven's 'Blood on the Snow'-from 1974.
The 4th release from Sister Midnight, our special February/Valentines 2019 edition.
Originally recorded by the band Coven-in 1974, the title track of their 3rd LP. You should all know about the mysterious Coven by now…Their 1st LP from 1969 ‘Witchcraft Coven-Destroys Minds & Reaps Souls’ is an absolute heavy rock classic and a pricey vinyl collectable. Steeped in Satanic/Occult themed songs & images. The release of that LP Predated Black Sabbath’s 1st LP by 7-8 months. Ironically, the bands biggest success was actually a middle-of the-road-AM Radio-pop tune ‘One Tin Soldier’ used on the soundtrack of the hit early 1970s film ‘Billy Jack’, and not a Satanic/Occult rock epic. But again, you should already know that by now.
It would seem logical to cover one of the many amazing, Proto-Everything songs from the 1st LP, but that’s also a bit too obvious. Instead, 'Blood on the Snow’ was chosen because it rocks, plain & simple and features the vocal duties of our first female guest ‘Sister’ singer Amy.
Also a good excuse for a sloppy Guitar solo(s) and plenty of Cowbell, performed by our 2nd guest Sister, Mr. Ginger Vitus.
