Rhino? Background to this man, Larry Rheinhardt to repeat the whole would be but a bit too much of a good - that can be found here . Only this: Larry has the early 70's making music started, then with Berry Oakley and Dickey Betts, both then at the ALLMAN BROTHERS land - and that Larry would fit without problems also executed, such as the song Do not Know proves ALLMAN condensed, so to speak. Then sniffed Rhino in IRON BUTTERFLY over, and this makes each Classic (Heavy) rock fan's mouth is watery, have these guys in their pre-Larry phase but In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida the potentially phenomenal drum solo of all time created by , a 17-minute tour de force through a maze of guitars, drums and keyboards solos, written by keyboardist Doug Ingle. Larry was from the 70's album "Metamorphosis" (after the "garden of life") there, and helped the band to be somewhat oppressively heavy less / be, and they wrote the song Easy Rider (Let The Wind Pay The Way) which would actually have to be a hit, but was not.

Larry left IRON BUTTERFLY. In order to Rod Evans (ex Deep Purple ) and Bobby Caldwell (ex Johnny Winter Band CAPTAIN BEYOND to found) the, the three classic hard rock albums veröffentlichtne total, of which the debut of "Captain Beyond" outstanding, and the number two "Sufficiently Breathless "were very good. In the 70's one of those bands that have been mentioned somewhere in the newspapers constantly, but unfortunately it does not quite managed to top Sun Classical, sometimes slightly proggige (but so did the time you specify) Hard Rock merchandise, well aged and well today to hear more. In the second half of the 70 it was then passed with the captain Behind it, Larry was once here and once there (among others in the reincarnations of IRON BUTTERFLY and CAPTAIN BEYOND), and finally a solo CD ("Rhino's Last Dance," on the website is set up a purchase link) publish, and last but not least, just now RHINO AND THE POSSE's "Back In The Day".

As mentioned above, this has on a few tracks a closeness to the Allman in short form, and with two guitarists and a keyboardist on board on board indulges in one of the 70's songwriting. In order to provide views clear: these guys are not 'retro'. They have been making music for what is now retro, progressive was. They can not help it and have an authenticity, all of which can retro rockers only dream of. Downside: they are as old-fashioned, that the already modern, then this is unfashionable again. Sound-wise, song standard, instrumental so formed in the 70s that you can only shake his head, then nodding to the beat.

In order to give some space guitars the same, the songs are between three to five minutes long and crisp. Back In The Day is the archetypal hard rock song, Changes is lyrically and musically Back In The Day, Part 2 . rock'n'roll State Of Mind is crisp Allman (the voice is strongly reminiscent of Greg's) with long guitar lines, rock and others with nice electric piano solo embellished southern.
All the songs in the mid-tempo range located, only Shakedown - a shuffle - is a bit slower. But it is not resting on the cushion, the two legendary rock groups could provide the membership - the songwriting is good and everything made ??with love and thought out.

Solid songwriting, sound ... oh, who cares: who has any fondness for the classic material: access. The CD is to get at the moment only at KUNAKI, but will be available on ITunes and Amazon.

Latest release on RLDrecords Back in the Day. This album is a concept with a modern look back to the days of Classic Rock done with a 2011 view of the past roots of music. This album has it all for people that are tired of the classic rock stations that repeat the same old play list made not buy programmers but the corporate office's of the five big radio owner's. This album would be on the radio if not for the $7.000 or so payoff's it take's to get on the air waves these days, but that has not really changed it still the same as it was only the amount has. Give this record a chance and I think it will play. Rhino Reinhardt........



Legendary Iron Butterfly / Captain Beyond Member Larry 'Rhino' Reinhardt Releases New CD Featuring Original Great Southern Members

When you speak of real classic rock legends, Larry 'Rhino' Reinhardt, founder of legendary '70s rock group Captain Beyond and former member of heavy metal prototypes Iron Butterfly, is a firmly established constituent of this elite group. Guitarist, songwriter and producer Larry “Rhino” Reinhardt started in the Georgia based bands The Load (1967-69) and The Second Coming (1969-70), with Dickey Betts and Berry Oakley, who went on to help form The Allman Brothers Band. Rhino would join Iron Butterfly in late 1969, and recorded the highly acclaimed 'Metamorphosis' album as well as touring with the band worldwide. After Iron Butterfly split at the end 1971, Rhino wasted no time and formed Captain Beyond, together with Lee Dorman (bass) from Iron Butterfly, Rod Evans (vocals) from Deep Purple and Bobby Caldwell (drums) from Johnny Winter. Captain Beyond was called a super group, given that pedigree and skills of the individual members. Their first self-titled album left the world breathless and continues to sell, being an influence of a whole new generation of bands. Rhino‘s unique guitar playing and songwriting skills can be heard on all three Captain Beyond albums: the first, self titled album 'Captain Beyond' (1972) and their second album 'Sufficiently Breathless' (1973) were released on Capricorn, while their third album 'Dawn Explosion', released on Warner Bros. In 1977. The first two Captain Beyond albums are considered 'classics' and have been since remastered and reissued on CD.

Rhino made some selected guest appearances through the years: he appeared on two Bobby Womack songs,“Don‘t Let Me Down” and “I Don‘t Want To Get Hurt By Your Love Again” from 'Lookin' For A Love Again' album (United Artists 1974). The Robert Tepper album 'No Rest For The Wounded Heart' was released in 1996, having been recorded in 1991 as Iron Butterfly. After Captain Beyond split in 1977, Rhino formed his own band Rhino in 1979, which included former Tucky Buzzard singer Jimi Henderson. The band toured the US in support of Stephen Stills. Through the years, Rhino has been in several reformed versions of Iron Butterfly with Lee Dorman (1978, 80, 84, 89 and 92), that also included original lead vocalist Doug Ingle (1978, 84), drummer Ron Bushy (1978, 92) and guitarist Erik Keith Brann (1989). In 1998 he reformed Captain Beyond with original drummer Bobby Caldwell. After a fantastic debut at Sweden Rock Festival in 1999, sharing the stage with Deep Purple, Dio and Budgie, Captain Beyond recorded an EP, that contains the potential hit “Don’t Cry Over Me”. Unfortunately, due to management issues, Captain Beyond was discontinued in 2002. Rhino then joined Blue Swamp in 2003 also playing selected shows locally with Rhino & Doss.

In August 2008 Rhino Reinhardt released his first solo album in Florida, called 'Rhino's Last Dance'. The CD received critical acclaim, but, due to distribution problems the CD was hard to obtain. Unsupported by management he pondered what to do, and then in early 2010, Dicky Betts sudden retirement, opened the door to get together with old friends, Mike Kach (keyboards), Frankie Lombardi (drums), and Pedro Arevalo (bass), from Great Southern, Dicky Betts band, and Don Bonzi (guitar). Rhino formed Rhino and the Posse and a lot of songs and a new concept started a new album 'Back in the Day' based on the idea of music that was familiar sounding but with a fresh new approach.

Rhino says, “We will just have see what the fans have to say about it. If the concept is not misunderstood, we just may have a winner here!”
