Collectors information & Album Description:

 "BIRTH CONTROL ‎– Hoodoo Man" is a 12" vinyl LP released in 1972 in Holland by the German progressive rock band Birth Control. The album features six tracks that showcase the band's unique blend of hard rock, psychedelic, and jazz influences.

The opening track, "Buy!", sets the tone for the album with its heavy, bluesy riff and powerful vocals. The following track, "Suicide," is a slower, more atmospheric number that features haunting guitar work and a memorable chorus.

The album's centerpiece is the epic, "Hoodoo Man," which takes the listener on a journey through multiple musical genres and moods, including a dreamy psychedelic section, a frenzied jazz-rock instrumental break, and a thunderous finale.

The second half of the album is more subdued, with the gentle acoustic ballad "Get Down to Your Fate" and the atmospheric instrumental "Gamma Ray" providing a contrast to the album's more aggressive first half.

"BIRTH CONTROL ‎– Hoodoo Man" is a dynamic and adventurous album that showcases the band's impressive musicianship and range of influences. Its mix of hard rock, psychedelia, and jazz make it a unique and memorable addition to the progressive rock canon.
