JOHN DRENDALL, B.A. THROWER & FRIENDS - Papa Never Let Me Sing The Blues (1972 US Blues Folk Psych Acid Rock)


DRENDALL, THROWER E OS AMIGOS DICK DUNHAM, TOM CARUSO, MIKE SKORY E NELSON WOOD FIZERAM UM ALBUM MUITO BOM COM GUITARRAS ELÉTRICAS E ACÚSTICAS DE ÓTIMO NÍVEL, COM VOCAIS E ARRANJOS COMPETENTES E TUDO EM TORNO DO BLUES, MAS MISTURANDO VÁRIOS ESTILOS E INFLUÊNCIAS COMO FOLK, PSICODELISMO, RURAL-ROCK E COM UM POUCO DE BOA VONTADE AINDA PODE SE NOTAR RESPINGOS DE SPACE-ROCK!! APENAS 500 CÓPIAS FORAM PRENSADAS DESSE BOM ALBUM!! VENENO RARO E RECOMENDADO!!
 
Deacon Productions lançou 500 cópias desse album em 1972. Tanto João Drendall (vocal / guitarra) e B.A. Thrower (baixo / guitarra / órgão) moravam no campus da Universidade de Michigan, em Lansing. Os dois finalmente se mudaram para uma casa suburbana com uma garagem espaçosa. Esta garagem foi transformada em um estúdio onde o grupo praticou horas a fio. Eventualmente Drendall e Thrower iam para um estúdio em Kalamazoo para gravar seus experimentos. Amigos, Tommy "Dedo Duro Eddie" Caruso (slide guitar), Mike "Elmo" Skory (teclados), Vern "O Bopper" Albaugh (flauta), Nelson Madeira (harpa), Jimmie Spillane (fundos), e Ross Maxwell (sinos e qualquer
outra coisa) deram contribuições valiosas para o álbum.
 
As performances dos caras brilham com um bom nível de profissionalismo. Todos são excelentes músicos, o compositor é estelar, e a produção soa de alto nível - igual como um grande grupo de rock. Aqueles de vocês que gostava Euphoria (o grupo de country-rock Texas), Crazy Horse, e todo mundo sabe que isso é Nowhere era Neil Young vai se apaixonar por este registro em uma maneira grande.
 
Uma das músicas do Papa, "Old Man Gibbs," soa como Neil Young em suas primeiras gravações. A abertura do álbum, "Cold Night In August.", destaca-se como a maioria dos blues do álbum, são mais de 6 minutos de um country blues bem descontraído que vale a pena ouvir. Mesmo os números psicodélicas, "Black River Lady" e "I Feel" é música de humor fabuloso que evoca uma atmosfera intoxicante mais de acordo com o final dos anos 60. O álbum como um todo é uniformemente legal e forte e vale uma audição.
 
---------------------------------------------------
A truly excellent album, with almost no reputation among dealer circles. Not that it's unliked, but very few have heard it due to it's rarity. The recent CD reissue should help in that respect. Primarily country/rural flavored rock, with some psych and blues mat'l, as well as a few folk/rock moves. They were a Michigan outfit, and this album, released on their own Deacon Productions label, was the first of three.
---------------------------------------------------
Acid Archives says: “This is an extremely accomplished private press album. They play acoustic and electric blues-rock, psych/funk jams, snappy acoustic folk, honky-tonk, and moody near space-rock, all with great success. The guitar playing is excellent, the vocals world-weary and evocative, and the arrangements clever (listen to the way the organ swoops in and out of “Old Man Gibbs,” for instance).”  

A1 Cold Night In August  6:33 
A2 Old Man Gibbs  5:40 
A3 Friends  2:30 
A4 Papa Never Let Me Sing The Blues  5:22

ROCK RARO (VOLUME 2) - Um mergulho na arqueologia do rock


Já está disponível o novo livro "Rock Raro", do colecionador e admirador de rock dos anos 60 e 70, o paulistano e colecionador Wagner Xavier. O volume 2 traz 343 grupos e discos raros dos anos 60 e 70, sendo todos inéditos em relação ao volume 1 do Rock Raro, que também será reeditado até o final do ano. O Rock Raro volume 2 está muito mais colorido, com diversas fotos dos próprios discos do autor, traz grupos da América do Sul além de 3 bônus raros. Hard rock, progressivo, folk e o blues rock são os principais gêneros abordados.

É um trabalho único no Brasil e similar ao "Record Collector Dreams" do austríaco Hans Pokora , mas certamente o Rock Raro é bem mais legal porque cada álbum tem uma resenha muito bem feita, ficha técnica com a formação da banda, seu país de origem, data de lançamento do LP, gênero e lista de músicas, além de cotação, fotos coloridas de capa e contracapa. Tudo com material de primeira qualidade e feito de forma profissional.

Rock Raro é um livro espetacular e obrigatório, digamos que é biblioteca básica pra fazer parte do acervo de qualquer colecionador ou apreciador do rock obscuro e raro dos anos 60-70, bem como uma descoberta para as novas gerações. É um mergulho na arqueologia do rock. É a bíblia do rock. Os subterrâneos do rock trazidos à superfície.
Eu diria que é um veneno altamente recomendado!!
Não consumam com nenhuma moderação!!
 
O mestre do Rock Raro, Wagner Xavier

A REMSTERIZAÇÃO DAS FAIXAS FICOU EXCELENTE!!
 
The 40th anniversary of the original Nuggets-Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968 is very well celebrated with this excellent compilation which proves to be The Ultimate 60's Australian Garage-Rock Collection. The official title of this fine collection is Down Under Nuggets:Original Australian Artyfacts 1965-67. This compilation also follows the 2001 Nuggets II:Original Artyfacts From The British Empire & Beyond, which was an excellent 4-cd collection put out by Rhino. Here, Australia finally gets it's own Nuggets. Fans of 60's Garage-Punk recordings will be very pleased with this 1 cd, unique 29-track set of Aussie Garage-Rock which clocks in at almost 78 minutes of frenzied-fuzz-drenched psychedelia. The collection features swirling primitive organ fills combined with an even cruder sound of adolescent put-downs. As in the other Nugget collections, there is not a bad track here to be heard with a treasure trove of very good to excellent tracks for fans to truly enjoy. There is also a 20 page booklet that covers each group and tune to savor. Some of the groups included here are: The Master's Apprentices, The Missing Links, The Black Diamonds, The Atlantics, The Lost Souls, The Loved Ones, The Throb, The Creatures, The Easybeats, The Wild Cherries, The Blue Beats & The Sunsets. The Sunsets track is especially important because it is the band's 5:29 version of "The Hot Generation", from the motion picture with the same name, which is quite rare & difficult to find. There is also a very rare track by The Bee Gees from an early session named "Like Nobody Else". Actually, if one wanted to try to purchase most of these tracks individually, you would have to pay between $1,000-$3,000, if you could even track them down. All-In-All, fans of this musical genre will be leaping with joy over this excellent collection! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! this 29 track cd is well worth it for any fan of 60s garage rock or psyche, the remastering sounds awesome so most of these tracks have never sounded better, play this loud if you buy it as that was the only way this was meant to be heard!!!!!

REPOST: HAZE - Hazecolor-Dia (1971 German Hard Psych Rock)


BEAUTIFUL ALBUM!!! GREAT SOUND HARD PSYCH ROCK WHIT FLUTE SOLOS!!!
HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!

UMA MANEIRA DE ENCONTRAR O PARAÍSO E FUMAR O SEU HAXIXE!! ASSIM ERA DEFINIDO À ÉPOCA O SOM DO HAZE!! GRANDE SOM HARD PSYCH ROCK COM PITADAS DO BLUES, SOLOS DE FLAUTA QUE NÃO SE SABE QUAL INTEGRANTE TOCA, VISTO QUE NÃO HÁ ESTA INFORMAÇÃO NA CAPA E NEM NA HISTÓRIA DA BANDA!!! O CERTO É QUE É UM SONZAÇO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!!!
 
The sole album released by Haze featured another of those extraordinary artwork sleeves designed by Walter Seyffer of Nine Days' Wonder fame. It was made to look exactly like a slide picture, complete with die-cut cover and an attached transparency Picture center of the group Haze on both its front and back covers. What you get here is a photo reproduction of that artwork. Hazecolor-Dia was a Hauke & Dierks production, recorded during April 1971 at the Clerks Studio. All five tracks were written by Dietmar Low. Slow, cleverly-arranged heavy progressive rock numbers, psychedelically fueled with a faint blues tinge, featuring humorous lyrics: A Way To Find Paradise told about a hippy's struggle to get his hashish to smoke! Scherler really had a strange and wild voice (he usually screamed as loudly as he could), adding much to their gutsy freak rock style. Several tracks also featured flute (the flute player is not identified on the cover). Haze, in part, seem to draw inspiration from The Edgar Broughton Band, Arthur Brown, and Captain Beefheart. Their album is recommended for all freak rock fans!

REPOST: BIG BROTHER & Ernie Joseph – CONFUSION (1970 US Hard Rock Psych)


ALBUM RARO!!! RARE ALBUM!!NÃO CONFUNDAM ESTA BANDA COM  A BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY, EX-BANDA DA JANIS JOPLIN!! ESTA É OUTRA MENOS POPULAR E FORMADA POR ERNIE JOSEPH, EX-VOCALISTA E GUITARRISTA DA BANDA "GIANT CRAB"!! DISCO RARO E VENENO DO BOM QUE MISTURAVA HARD ROCK COM INFLUÊNCIAS PSICODÉLICAS!! VENENO RARO E RECOMENDADO!!

Ranging from fuzzed out psychedelic influenced hard rock, to straight blues rock, this album covers a few musical spectrums, but doesn't have enough stand out tracks. The vocals sound forced, and the recorded quality isn't anything spectacular.
 
A Californian band (commune/family) who recorded their first album in Hollywood. Produced by Bill Holmes, the album is patchy. Its best tracks are the hard-rocking ESP and the dreamy Wake Me Up In The Morning. The album also includes an interesting long version of Saint James Infirmary. Before Big Brother, Ernie Joseph was known as Ernie Orosco and formed several Santa Barbara outfits including Ernie and The Emperors, Ernie's Funnys and Giant Crab.
 
Big Brother Feat. Ernie Joseph - Confusion
Influenced by the guitar sounds of Hendrix, Cream and Jeff Beck, The Bill Holmes produced Confusion is an incendiary classic of British blues style guitar rock. The band, not to be confused with the similarly named and of course more popular Big Brother and the Holding Company made a name for themselves as a great live performance, often encouraging audience participation. Their on stage energy comes across well on the record, resulting in a loose charismatic album that only slows down long enough to sing a serenade on "Wake Me In The Morning." The rest blisters through with searing guitar virtuosity from Ernie Joseph and an organ sound that shows no signs of prog's impending overindulgence. A rock record from start to finish.


CORY COLT: guitar, bass, organ, vocals

BRIAN FAITH: drums, bass
ERNIE JOSEPH: vocals, led guitar, bass

TRUE MYTH - True Myth (1979 Canada Progressive Rock)


ALBUM BEM RARO!! RARE ALBUM!!
BANDA CANADENSE QUE FAZIA UM PROGRESSIVO PARECIDO COM YES, MAS COM UMA INFLUÊNCIA DO JAZZ!! UMA BOA PEDIDA PRA QUEM GOSTA DE PROGRESSIVO!! UMA CURIOSIDADE É QUE ESSE ALBUM FOI O SEGUNDO A SER GRAVADO DIGITALMENTE (LEMBRANDO QUE 1979 ESTÁVAMOS ENTRANDO NA ERA DIGITAL)!! O PRIMEIRO ALBUM GRAVADO DIGITALMENTE FOI STEVIE WONDER COM SECRET LIFE OF PLANTS!! VENENO RARO!!!
 
Background
Tom Treumuth is a legend in the Canadian music scene. Producer, arranger, musician, record label owner.. you name it, he's probably done it. His origins as a musician go way back into the late 70's, with this band True Myth (clever name huh?). From London Ontario, the band members came together at a music school, where they reputedly spun this band off from a class music project. The music was described to me as a pomp/prog crossover, though upon hearing this, it definitely has leanings toward the progressive, with jazz/fusion influences heavy in the mix. Interestingly, and from a technical viewpoint, 'True Myth' the album, was unique in that it was the second album ever to be produced digitally (remembering 1979 was in the middle of the analog era). Warner Bros co-opted top producer Jack Richardson to utilise a machine called the Soundstream to record the band playing live into this two track digital system. For trainspotters, apparently the first ever digitally recorded album was Stevie Wonder's 'Secret Life Of Plants'.
 
The Songs
Music wise, True Myth are quite a technical sounding band, time changes galore, and an approach that fuses prog luminaries Yes and U.K and no doubt many others if I sit down and think about it a bit more. The musical chops displayed by this band is remarkable at times. 'Reach For The Heavens' takes us through several different passages, from Treumuth's stabbing piano work to Bollinger's dexterous drum work. 'Light Years Before' is full of piano rolls, clavinet and interesting synth parts. It takes on a Yes like personality, with Tony Cook doing his best Steve Howe rendition. Going down the pomp path is 'It's Got To Be', with strong multi-part harmonies and ever-present rhodes piano. 'Time And Time Again' again moves in a Yes direction, and considering how Messrs Anderson, Wakeman etc were obsessed with 'time' in their lyrics, it's a good fit! The obligatory ballad on the album 'Space Promenade' also happens to be an instrumental. 'In The Mist' features excellent vocals from Cumming, the track a progressive workout with everyone taking a lead. Though mostly restrained, 'Song Of The World' picks up momentum, it's etheric sound reminding us of latterday Stencil Forest and Starcastle.

Repost: RIFF RAFF - Original Man (1974 UK Progressive Rock Fusion)


NEW POSTING WITH ALL COVERS!!

ÓTIMA BANDA, EXCELENTE ALBUM!! OS CARAS FAZIAM UM SOM QUE MISTURAVA COM MAESTRIA O PROGRESSIVO COM PITADAS JAZZ, BLUES E HARD ROCK!! TUDO NA MEDIDA CERTA!! NESTA BANDA HÁ UMA CURIOSIDADE, POIS TEMOS UM BRASILEIRO NA PERCUSSÃO CHAMADO AUREO DE SOUZA, UM CARIOCA JÁ RODADO NA INGLATERRA E QUE JÁ GRAVOU COM OUTRAS BOAS BANDAS, COMO POR EXEMPLO, A BANDA NUCLEUS!! "TOMMY EIRE" É UM MULTI-INSTRUMENTISTA E ERA O TECLADISTA ORIGINAL DA GREASE BAND DE JOE COCKER, TAMBÉM FEZ PARTE DA AYNSLEY DUNBAR RETALIATION EM DOIS ALBUNS DA BANDA!! TOCOU AINDA NA BANDA JUICY LUCY!! EXCELENTE VENENO E ÓTIMA RARIDADE!!
Original Liner Notes:
Riff Raff brings together four men of varying musical experiences whose sound spans both rock and modern jazz but cannot be pigeonholed in either camp.
Their music is their own; they write, arrange and produce themselves, and the result is music of today that succeeds in avoiding the self-indulgence of many of their contemporaries. They named themselves Riff Raff with tongues firmly in cheek, although the name serves to emphasize the individuality of each member of the band. All four musicians have known or known of each other for a couple of years or more: that goes double for bassist Roger Sutton and keyboard man Tommy Eyre, who both ended a two-year run with the Mark-Almond band during the Summer of 1972; guitarist Pete Kirtley is a Geordie last seen as an Alan Price sideman; and percussionist Aureo de Souza hails, as all good percussionists should, from Rio de Janeiro.
Tommy Eyre plays Fender Rhodes electric piano, organ, six- and 12-string guitar, concert and bass flute. He was classically trained on the piano from the age of three (an infant prodigy as they say), and should be best known as the keyboardist in Joe Cocker's original Grease Band (indeed he played on and arranged Joe's cover of "With A Little Help From My Friends"). Later joined Aynsley Dunbar's Retaliation (with Roger Sutton) with whom he made two albums. When Aynstey left to join Zappa, Tommy had a brief period with Juicy Lucy and then moved on to Mark-Almond. Roger Sutton's bass is a specially-made fretless Fender, to which he adds cello, double bass, and six- and twelve-string guitars. He has been a pro musician since he was 17, and played his first starring part as bassist for Brian Auger's Trinity in the days of Julie Driscoll: several Sutton numbers were recorded by Jools and the band. Next came Aynsley Dunbar's Blue Whale (with Tommy Eyre), Heavy Jelly, and in mid-1970 - Mark-Almond. Roger is one of Riff Raff's main sources of original material.
Pete Kirtley has played self-taught guitar professionally from the age of 16 and his first real band of note was Graham Bell's Griffin, which also included Alan White (now of Yes) and later Bud Beadle who added saxes to Riff Raff's album. Also spent some time as session man with Alan Price and met Roger Sutton during sessions in London. Now plays a Fender Telecaster for preference.
Percussionist Aureo de Souza was born in Rio de Janeiro and left Brazil in March 1971. He has played with Paul Horn and Nucleus, and when Riff Raff were looking for a drummer, they heard of him by reputation and signed him on. Altough completely at home with the conventional drum kit, and able to underpin the band with a solid beat, he has a vast knowledge of Latin American percussion techniques which gives his playing a subtlety, sensitivity, and variety not usually found in the majority of rock drummers.
Bud Beadle, formerly with Ginger Baker's Airforce, and currently with Riff Raff, plays saxes on the album. Riff Raff made a most encouraging if somewhat hasty debut at London's Conway Hall and in something like half an hour manifested a superb show amalgamating moods with exciting melodies, catchy hooks and lots of free blowing. In fact, they exuded too much music, too much energy for the human mind to comprehend - the only way to dig the music was on a visceral level like you would on a night when the Buddy Miles Band or Santana were really cooking or if Shorter, Vitous and Zawinul suddenly walked into your local jazz cellar and took over. About the same time as this concert, I was handed the first pressing of the band's album, recorded in the carefully chosen environment of the Manor Studios in Oxfordshire.
It took some considerable effort to pass onto the second track for having heard Roger singing in unison with himself on his own "Your World", the tendency was always to go back for more.
In as much as it is the only yardstick by which to judge Tommy and Roger's stylistic changes, Riff Raff highlight the inadequacies that existed within Mark-Almond. The group could never sustain itself without a lead guitar and in Riff Raff the emphasis is constantly changing between guitar, horns and keyboards. Pete Kirtley isn't the strident lead player I had expected, in fact, he is entirely cooperative in the true sense of the word.
Composers' credits are shared throughout. Two of Kirtley's songs show the different ways in which Riff Raff choose the handle composition and in each case the result is staggering: "For Every Dog" contains a fairly uniform backing illustrating a strong melodic theme written into the composition, whereas "You Must Be Joking" is total energy and improvisation, the only reconciliation point coming where the musicians join hands for the strong hook. Dig the humour in this one too - it's a wonderful piece of escapism.
It's easy to relate the Riff Raff discography to the many sources of music which Tommy and Roger site as being their sources of inspiration. And yet no album with this vitality can be taken on such a unilateral basis for in their exposition of West Coast jazz and West Coast rock. Riff Raff speak volumes of their own experiences. And if you want to see the claustrophobic climate known as the English rock scene through a musician's eyes, then cop an earful of this album. But superlatives soon become redundant - the validity of the music goes on forever.

THE ROLLING STONES - Necrophilia (1971 Rare Unreleased Album)


ESTE É UM ALBUM DOS STONES QUE NÃO FOI LANÇADO E QUE DEPOIS VIROU BOOTLEG RARÍSSIMO!! AS VERSÕES AQUI ESTÃO BEM DIFERENTES DAS ORIGINAIS E AINDA TEMOS ALGUMAS INÉDITAS PRA CURTIR!! VÁRIAS DAS CANÇÕES APRESENTAM APENAS JAGGER E RICHARDS COM OUTROS MÚSICOS E NÃO COM OS OUTROS STONES!!

NA VERDADE É O SEGUINTE: AQUELE DISCO CHAMADO "HOT ROCKS" ERA PRA SER INTITULADO NECROPHILIA E ERA PRA TER AS FAIXA SELECIONADAS PELO IMPREVISÍVEL "ANDREW LOOG OLDHAM"!! UM ENCARTE CHEGOU ATÉ A SER PROJETADO!! APENAS UM NÚMERO EXTREMAMENTE LIMITADO HAVIA SIDO PRODUZIDO QUANDO ENTÃO "OLDHAM" E UM OUTRO PRODUTOR TIVERAM UMA GRANDE DESAVENÇA POR CONTA DAS MÚSICAS ESCOLHIDAS POR OLDHAM QUE O OUTRO ACHOU MUITO ECLÉTICA PORQUÊ INCLUÍA MÚSICAS POLÊMICAS COMO "ANDREW BLUES" E "PAY YOUR DUES (QUE ERA UMA VERSÃO ALTERNATIVA DE STREET FIGHTING MAN)!! PORTANTO, AQUI ESTÁ UM BOOTLEG QUE NADA MAIS É DO QUE A TRANSFERÊNCIA DE VINIL PARA CD REMASTERIZADO DESSE ALBUM QUE NUNCA CHEGOU A SER LANÇADO OFICIALMENTE!!
This is the never-released album from 1971 (or was it 1972), which was pressed on a few acetates. Some acetates were sold, for a lot of money, a couple of years ago, and....surfaced on bootleg CD after a while. The songs are either completely different takes (like "Have You Seen Your Mother Baby"), or different mixes than the official versions (from Metamophosis) Pay Your Dues and the speeded-up Blue Turns To Gray are fantastic, IMOAs Metomophosis, several of the songs features Jagger, Richards and studio musicians, and not the other Stones members. This is a high quality vinyl transfer made using the original London/ABCKO unreleased vinyl source and then digitally remastered.

Notes: Tom Dowd is responsible for introducing Duane Allman and Eric Clapton. In 1970, Dowd was in the middle of recording the Allman Brother's second album, Idlewild South , when Eric's manager (Robert Stigwood) called to tell Tom that Eric would like to bring his new band, Derek and the Dominos, to Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida to record with him.

Tom later recounted the phone call that began it all. Now when the call came I was in the studio with Duane. I said, Hey, that's a hot one, kid! That was Eric Clapton's management talking about him coming here to record. Allman looks at me and goes You mean the guy from Cream? Do you think he'd mind if I just came to watch. I told him, no problem.

Eric and the rest of the Dominos arrived at Criteria Studios in late August. During the first week, most of the studio time was spent jamming and piecing together new songs

POSTAGEM AQUI NO BLOG"!! 
ESTOU REPARANDO MAIS UMA INJUSTIÇA HISTÓRICA POSTANDO ESSE ÁLBUM, POIS É UM VENENO EXCELENTE E QUE MERECIA JÁ A MUITO TEMPO ESTAR ENTRE OS VENENOS!!

ANOTHER POST SERIES: "I WAS THAT MUST POST IN THE BLOG HERE"!! REPAIR A GREAT INJUSTICE POSTING THIS ALBUM! IS A GREAT ALBUM AND I deserved LONGER BE HERE TO MUCH TIME AGO!!

ESSA POSTAGEM É O PRIMEIRO ALBUM DA BANDA E É UMA EDIÇÃO ESPECIAL COM OITO BONUS TRACKS!! VENENO RECOMENDADO!! ABAIXO UMA BOA RESENHA SOBRE A BANDA FEITA PELO AMIGO WAGNER XAVIER!!

THIS POST IS THE FIRST ALBUM OF THE BAND AND IS A SPECIAL EDITION WITH EIGHT BONUS TRACKS! VENENO RECOMMENDED! BELOW A GOOD REVIEW ON THE BAND MADE BY WAGNER XAVIER FRIEND!

"O Andrômeda foi uma daquelas bandas que possuem a capacidade de juntar, "antes da fama", vários craques que por outras circunstancias foram fazer sucesso em outras grandes bandas. Originalmente, a banda inglesa foi formada no maravilhoso (pelo menos lá por aqueles lados) ano de 1968, tendo em sua primeira formação John Cann na guitarra, Richard Sherman no vocal, Roger Dean no baixo e Keith Hodge nos teclados. Após algumas tentativas de êxito, o pessoal saiu, ficando apenas John Cann, que rapidamente recrutou Mick Hawksworth para o baixo e Ian Mclane na bateria para então formar o Andrômeda.

Apesar de alguns considerarem o Andrômeda como uma banda de rock progressivo, acredito ser mais fácil identificar a banda com um estilo mais próximo do hard psicodélico com algumas levadas progressivas. Após o difícil inicio, a banda conseguiu assinar com a RCA Records para um primeiro single. Com algum êxito, eles conseguiram fechar o contrato para a gravação do primeiro LP já em 1969.

O disco em questão é daquelas bons de serem ouvidos de ponta a ponta. Começa com Too Old (4'58), sonzão psicodélico com destaques para as guitarras e uma sensacional linha de baixo. Este início diz tudo: o instrumental beira a perfeição, o refrão pega de primeira, enfim, o disco promete. A segunda faixa é Day of the Change (5'02), música mais tranqüila do que a anterior. O baixo novamente impressiona pela qualidade e a melodia é de extrema beleza. A próxima é And Now The Sun Shines (4'00) uma levada mais jazzistica, destacando uma guitarra mais light e um vocal que beira algo mais baladeiro. Bela canção.

Turns to Dust (6'49) é a quarta faixa, e surge dividida em três partes: Discovery, Sanctuary e Determination. O resultado é pauleira típica do final dos anos 60. O acompanhamento do baixo é simplesmente genial. Lembra de leve algo dos três primeiros álbuns da fase pré hard rock do legendário Deep Purple, ou coisas do ótimo Warhorse. O solo de guitarra no meio desta música é algo para "viajar" de tão belo, e de extremo bom gosto. O baixo alucinado de Mick na parte final da música é algo particularmente sensacional. A melhor faixa do disco.

Return to Sanity (8'20), a seguinte, também é dividida em três partes: Breakdown, Hope e Conclusion. Esta é a faixa mais enigmática do álbum. O destaque desta vez fica por conta da guitarra que sola simplesmente o tempo todo. A sexta faixa é The Reason (3'32), a única cuja autoria não é de John Cann, sendo composta pelo baixista Mick Hawksworth. Apesar de interessante trabalho instrumental não está entre as melhores do disco. Na seqüência temos I Can Stop the Sun (2'10), a balada do disco. Lindo trabalho de vocais e apenas acompanhamento da guitarra.

Para finalizar o álbum surge When to Stop (8'32), também dividida em três temas, sendo The Traveller, Tunning Point e Jorney's End. Grande estilo para o fechamento deste clássico do psicodelismo inglês. A faixa começa calminha, mas atinge seu ápice no final, tornando-se uma das melhores do álbum, no nível de Turns to Dust. Apesar de sua reconhecida qualidade, o Andrômeda não conseguiu o sucesso esperado, permitindo que seus integrantes partissem para novos projetos, e alcançassem exito desta forma. Certamente o Andrômeda foi um belo estágio para eles.

Primeiro John, que virou DuCann, partiu para o antológico Atomic Rooster, ficando por lá por dois anos e tendo participado da gravação dos obrigatórios Death Walks Behind You e ...In Hearing Of, sendo sem dúvida os dois melhores álbuns da excepcional banda do organista talentoso e alucinado Vicent Craine.

Logo após a saída do Atomic Rooster, John formou junto com o baixista John Gustafson, ex-Quatermass, e o baterista Paul Hammond o maravilhoso Hard Stuff. O resultado da união foi a gravação da obra prima Bullet Proof, em 1972. John Cann ainda tocou no irlandês Thin Lizzy em 1974 para finalizar a tour européia da banda quando da saída do guitarrista Gary Moore. Ele ainda tocou com outras bandas além de alguns trabalhos solos durante os anos 80.

O fantástico baixista Mick ajudou a fundar o também sensacional Fuzzy Duck, tendo gravado em 1971 o ótimo e único álbum desta banda. Mick ainda participou da versão alternativa do Ten Years After, do guitarrista Alvin Lee, chamdada Ten Years Later, durante o final dos 70. Já o baterista McLane não conseguiu êxito após o fim do Andrômeda, tendo se retirado da cena musical.

Sobre os relançamentos do Andrômeda, é conhecida uma versão em CD lançada pela Repeitore Records em 1994, e que contém nada menos do que oito bônus tracks, sendo que as duas primeiras são as faixas do single gravado pela banda em 1968. O material inédito é bem interessante também.

Já o LP, é covardia. Andrômeda foi relançado em 2000 pela Angel Air Records, com capa dupla, fotos da época, que, inclusive, trazem cartazes de shows da banda sozinha ou com convidados como Black Sabbath, além de uma foto com o Andrômeda tocando com John Peel dando uma canjinha. A única reclamação é que mudaram a cor da capa de laranja (original) para lilás, mas tudo bem, a edição ficou muito bonita mesmo assim. Sem dúvida um dos grandes álbuns desta prolifera e criativa época dos bons sons."

Andwella were a Northern Irish psychedelic rock band formed in 1968, originally as The Method and later renamed Andwellas Dream. Their first album, as Andwellas Dream, Love and Poetry, was recorded in London in 1968, and featured jazz musician Bob Downes on saxophone and flute,[1] and Wilgar Campbell on drums on the track "Felix".[2]:44 However, the album failed to sell, and Lewis then recorded a solo album, privately pressed, on the Ax label in 1970; which included new versions of some of the Andwella's Dream songs.[1] Then in 1970 David Lewis wrote the music for and produced poet David Baxter's "Goodbye Dave" album, for which he was backed by Andwella. With the addition of Dave McDougall on guitar and vocals, the band was renamed Andwella. This line-up issued World's End, before Dave Struthers replaced Nigel Smith on bass and Jack McCullock joined as drummer.[1] This lineup recorded the bands' last album, People's People, in 1971, after which the band broke up in 1972. Lewis later went on to write "Happy to Be an Island in the Sun", recorded in the 1970s by Demis Roussos.

BLACK MERDA - The Psych Funk of Black Merda (US Psych Soul Rock)


NÃO AMIGOS!! NÃO É UMA BANDA DE MERDA NÃO!! TRATA-SE DE UMA BANDA AMERICANA ATIVA DESDE A METADE DOS ANOS 60 E INÍCIO DOS 70, OS CARAS SÃO MUITO BONS E PRECURSORES DO PSYCH FUNK ROCK!!! VENENO MUITO BOM E UM DOS MELHORES NESSE ESTILO DE SOM!! PARA QUEM GOSTA DE UM BOM FUNK PSICODÉLICO BEM SWINGADO, PEGA QUE É GARANTIDO!!

PARA QUEM ACHA O NOME DA BANDA ESTRANHO, ESTÁ AQUI ESSA CITAÇÃO QUE ACHEI NA INTERNET E QUE MELHOR RESUME ESSA QUESTÃO:

...vem do sotaque nos guetos negros americanos e do psicodelismo de uma época em que as bandas tinham nomes de cores: Blue Cheer, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, etc. Mas, para azar dos irmãos Hawkins & seus comparsas, o título que escolheram para sua banda de rock tem duplo sentido em pelo menos 3 línguas latinas. Quem explica é Veesee ‘The Mighty V’, que além do baixo comanda os vocais da banda: 

“Ficamos sabendo na internet que em português, francês e italiano ‘merda’ significa ‘cocô’! Originalmente nosso nome seria Black Murder, mas mudamos a grafia para Merda por causa da pronúncia em inglês, então nosso uso da palavra ‘merda’ não vem do português, francês ou italiano. Merda means murder! Mas de qualquer jeito, ‘shit’ é usada de diferentes maneiras na cultura afroamericana: ‘You need to get your shit together!’, ‘Where’s my shit?’, ‘Give me the real shit!’, ‘That’s some real good shit!’, ‘I really like your shit!’... Então, dá pra dizer que ‘Black Merda plays some real cool black shit!’...”

Pois bem, longe do que diz o nome em português, Black Merda significa, no jeitão do gueto norte-americano, "Black Murder", o que por sua vez, traduzido, quer dizer "Chacina Negra". Seus integrantes, além de serem excelentes músicos, também foram militantes políticos e fizeram parte dos Black Panthers de Detroit. Tocaram em diversas manifestações públicas e inclusive, dividiram o palco com os caras do MC5.

---------------------
A collection of ultra rare material from the mighty Black Merda and affilliates – including early work credited to The Soul Agents (a pre-cursor to Merda) and solo credits for lead singer VC L. Veasey! Psych Funk is a very apt description to pretty much all of the music in the set – with that sinister guitar groove, funky bass and rollicking drums. The vocals range from the soul funk school – especially the couple of tracks sung by Linnie Walker (the sister of Black Merda members Charles and Anthony Hawkins) – to more psychedelia-learned phrasings – not unlike early Parliament! Tracks include an alternate versions of the Black Merda tunes "Cynthy-Ruth" and "Reality", "People Let Me Know" and "Darn Well" featuring vocals by Linnie Walker, the Soul Agents excellent funk version of "Foxy Lady", and the VC Veasey tracks "Do Nothing Wrong" and "Original Man".  © 1996-2013, Dusty Groove, Inc.

PUGH'S PLACE - Live Paradiso (1972 Holland Hard Prog Rock)


ALTÍSSIMA RARIDADE!!
HIGHEST RARITY!!
ALBUM GRAVADO AO VIVO DA PUGH'S PLACE E COM MÚSICAS QUE NÃO ENTRARAM O DISCO DE ESTÚDIO DOS CARAS CHAMADO "WEST ONE" GRAVADO EM 1969 (JÁ POSTADO AQUI NO BLOG)!! BASICAMENTE É HARD ROCK COM TOQUES DO PROGRESSIVO, IMPROVISAÇÕES LEGAIS, MUITA GUITARRA E COM ALTOS SOLOS DE FLAUTA!! A FLAUTA ROLA SOLTA EM SOLOS SENSACIONAIS!! A MÚSICA "AFTER DEATH" É UM BOM EXEMPLO, POIS TEM SOLOS LONGOS DE FLAUTA E GUITARRA EM UMA JAM HARD PROG SENSACIONAL!! VENENO RARÍSSIMO E RECOMENDADO!!

Information:
Recorded live in Paradiso (Amsterdam), Exit (Rotterdam) and Pow-Wow (Leeuwarden)

This is a live album by Frisian rock band Pugh's Place. Surprisingly it contains solely tracks that weren't released as a studio recording, that is on their one and only studio "West One" from 1969. The music on this album is rather heavy, with plenty guitar and flute solos. Also the vibes, played by Kalma give this release a very distinct sound. As said, the music is heavy rock. The progressive parts come from the instrumental breaks. This can typically be said from the first song on the album, the second has a Jethro Tull falvor over it, mainly of course due to the flute solo. The third track starts rather lovely, but then evolves into a driving rhythm with extensive solos for guitar and flute. Great track. "Flying so high" is a beautiful melodic track and another highlight of the album. The closer, "After death" is the longest track on the album, and that usually means the highlight of the album. That principle goes here too. It is a dynamic track with lots of room for improvisations. All in all a good album. Musically it doesn't differ much from the studio album, albeit a bit more heavy and aggressive. (Dutch progressive rock of the nineteen seventies)

MONSTER RARE ORIGINAL DUTCH PRESSING LP! Just a small press!
Original early 70's Dutch pressing Heavy Psych , Heavy Rock lp with Pugh's Place , Children of Jubal & Rick and Dave on the tiny and weird Universe Record. Side one is Pugh's Place doing 2 blistering Deep Purple covers, Side 2 has 2 tracks by Children of Jubal that are amazing heavy psych band. It contains the only stuff ever released. These geezers came from Friesland, upper North, and the tune 'Blue Horizon', which was included in the Waterpipes and Dykes CD,   is where all psych and trips anywhere in this world seem to come together. A real rawly recorded psychedelic masterpiece lasting almost 5 minutes with piles of effects, GOOD!There other tune is cool too. Two Americans 'Rick and Dave'   have one cool crude moog psych tripped up tune. Home made type cover

INVADERS - There's a Light There's a Way (1970 South Africa Hard Prog Beat Rock)


BANDA SUL AFRICANA QUE NOS ANOS 60 SÓ LANÇOU EPs NA BASE DO BEAT ROCK E NESSE ÁLBUM DE 1970 APRESENTA UM SOM MAIS MADURO COM UMA SONORIDADE QUE PASSEIA ENTRE O HARD, PROGRESSIVO, BEAT E SOUL!! O ORGAN HAMMOND TRABALHA A MIL POR AQUI!! É UM DOS DESTAQUES!! NÃO É UM DISCO EXCELENTE, MAS SIMPLESMENTE UM BOM DISCO!! TEM UMA VERSÃO PARA "You Can't Always Get What You Want" DOS ROLLING STONES NUM ESTILO ROCK SOUL QUE FICOU BEM BACANA!!

Decent semi-progressive heavy rock with some late 60's beat influences. Nice guitar, singing, and Hammond organ work. The album includes a blistering soul rock version of the Stones classic “You can't always get what you want”. NOT A GREAT ALBUM, BUT SIMPLY A GOOD ALBUM!
