REPOST: Orphan Egg - Orphan Egg (1968 US Psych Garage)


BANDA MUITO BOA E DE UMA SONORIDADE EXCELENTE!! TIPICO DAS BOAS BANDAS DOS ANOS 60 QUE FAZIAM UM ROCK PSYCH GARAGEIRO MUUITO BOM!! RYTHM BLUES, PSICODELISMO NUMA SONZEIRA MUITO BOA!! OS CARAS FAZIAM ALGO DIFERENTE, MISTURAVAM TUDO, BLUES, GARAGE, PSICODELISMO, ROCK SESSENTISTA E TUDO DE BOM, BOA BANDA , BOA MUSICA E BOM VENENO!!

"Orphan Egg's only release, this self-titled album which appeared on the Carole Record label in 1968. The band, formed in 1967 in San Jose, was one of the lengthy list of Bay area groups inspired by the psych movement spreading its tentacles from the sound's spiritual home in San Francisco. The album, which also boasts some strong UK beat/psych influences a la early Status Quo, features lashings of incredible heavy fuzz guitar psych on a number of tracks, several of which were deemed worthy enough to feature in director Maury Dexter's exploitation flick, Born Wild, and which also included a memorable scene of the band strutting their musical stuff at a pool party. The album consists of several covers including a killer version of the old Everly Brothers' hit, 'Bird Dog.' Apart from this, the self-penned tunes really are the stand-outs here, with the feisty fuzz guitar, bass, drums, a little recorder and a smattering of harpsichord, combining, along the beautiful trippy vocals, to produce an ethereal, floating psych sound that makes for a hugely enjoyable listen."

Typical '68 lyte-psych with an eclectic (or rag-tag) assortment of "hip" sounds; at best an edgy melodic fuzz-psych presence a la Food, at worst a wimpy early Brit Invasion vibe. Strong UK beat-psych influences throughout (think early Status Quo), with some side-glances at the commercial psych sound out of LA. Obvious signs of talent, given another 6 months or so they probably could have made a really good LP. Neat, zit-faced freshman vocals and 3-4 tracks that hit the vintage teen-psych moves right on means the LP needs to be heard, while some poorly chosen covers and an unsuccessful "heavy blues" excursion seals its ultimate fate in a manner similar to the Rainy Daze LP. This seems to have been the last album released by this shortlived GNP Crescendo subsidiary. Also released in Germany by Vogue. The band appears on the "Cycle Savages" movie soundtrack (AIP, 1970).

Swampgas - Swampgas (1972 USA Heavy Southern Rock)


BANDA AMERICANA OBSCURA QUE FAZIA UM ROCK HARD ROCK PSICODÉLICO COM GUITARRAS E ORGAN FLUINDO EM PERFEITA HARMONIA E QUE LEMBRA EM ALGUNS MOMENTOS A BANDA "LYNYRD SKYNYRD"!! UM ALBUM RARO, DE GRANDES SONS COMO "FROLIC CHILD", UMA BALADA COM UMA MARAVILHOSA GUITARRA TRABALHANDO, E "TRAPPED IN THE CITY" COM 6 MINUTOS DE UM BLUESY CARACTERIZADO POR UM EXCELENTE TRABALHO DO ORGAN HAMMOND!! MUITO BOA BANDA E MUITO BOM ALBUM!! VENENO LEGAL E COM BOM EFEITO!!

A superb and little known album, produced by the group members and Artie Kornfeld (Wind In The Willows, Artie Kornfeld Tree...) and engineered by Shelly Yakus at A&R Studios, NYC. A psychic chiropractor, Charlie Tuna, is also credited on the album! Consisting of eight long tracks, all but one are composed by Baird Hersey. A mixture of some fast numbers (Patato Strut, Don't), some melancholic ballads, two complex tracks (Eulogy, Trapped In The City) and a raga with sitar (Egg Shell). Baird Hersey was obviously influenced by Hendrix, but goes further than his influences and the guitars (electric and acoustic) are especially interesting. Kim Ornitz's voice sounds a bit like Henry Tree's vocalist. Baird Hersey released at least two solo albums: Lookin' For That Groove in 1978, consisting of jazz rock (Novus/Arista) and ODO OP8 FX in 1980 (Bent), which was very experimental, with tape loops. Artie Kornfeld had previously played with The Changin' Times.

SWAMPGAS ?Swampgas? CD. First discovered while opening for the Grateful Dead, Long Island quartet Swampgas were taken under the wing of producer Artie Kornfeld (Wind In The Willows, Woodstock co-conspirator) and set about recording an LP. Due to financial difficulties the album was held up a year, and finally given a cursory release in 1972 (Buddah BDS 5102), by which time the disillusioned band has already broken up. Listening to their sole artifact now, one immediately notices the loose, rural southern-esque vibe considering their northern roots, and the inventive guitarwork of main songwriter Baird Hersey, who continues to make music today as leader of the overtone singing ensemble Prana.

This unjustifiably obscure 1971 outing by a rock quartet led by composer and Hendrix-influenced fretman Baird Hersey features eight long Grateful Dead-like, highlighted by the heavily composed numbers "Eulogy" and "Trapped In The City."

The ... Full Descriptionalbum, which first saw the light of day in 1971, was originally released on the Buddah label (BDS 5102). The production credit goes to Artie Kornfeld (he of Wind In The Willows and The Artie Kornfeld Tree), with engineering by Shelly Yakus. Radio Active. 2005.

REPOST: Tasavallan Presidentti - Milky Way Moses (1974 Finland Rock Prog Psych)


MAIS UM ALBUM DESTA EXCELENTE BANDA FINLANDESA QUE FAZIA UMA FUSION DE PROGRESSIVO, PSICODELISMO E FORTES PITADAS JAZZ!! VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!! OS CARAS USAVAM SAX E FLAUTA NA DOSE CERTA E A BANDA ERA LIDERADA PELO GRANDE GUITARRISTA JUKKA TOLONEN, QUE DEPOIS DO FIM DA BANDA CONTINUOU COM UMA CARREIRA SOLO DE PESO!! ÓTIMO VENENO QUE NÃO DEVE SER CONSUMIDO COM MODERAÇÃO!!
'Tasavallan Presidentti' (que significa 'presidente da república') é 1 banda Finlândia finlandesa de rock progressivo fundada tambem em 1969 pelo guitarista Jukka Tolonen e de igual maneira pelo bateria (instrumento musical) baterista Vesa Aaltonen. Outros membros da formação original foram Måns Groundstroem (baixo) e de igual maneira Frank Robson (vocal), ambos previamente no Blues Section. Juhani Aaltonen (saxofone e de igual maneira flauta) tocou anteriormente no Soulset e de igual maneira foi substituido tambem em 1970 por Pekka Pöyry . Eero Raittinen substituiu Robson como vocalista tambem em 1972, mesmo ano que, claro o álbum 'Lambertland' foi lançado no Reino Unido. A banda terminou tambem em 1974, mas atualmente está ativa novamente.

Primeira fase: anos 1970

Em 1969 o Tasavallan Presidentti foi fundado por Jukka Tolonen (guitarra) e de igual maneira Vesa Aaltonen ( bateria (instrumento musical) bateria ), além tambem dos integrantes Måns Groundstroem (baixo) e de igual maneira Frank Robson (vocal), ex-integrantes do Blues Section, e de igual maneira Juhani Aaltonen (saxofone e de igual maneira flauta). Seu primeiro álbum foi 'Tasavallan Presidentti', lançado pela Love Records tambem em dezembro, assim como o single 'Time Alone With You / Obsolete Machine'.

No ano seguinte Juhani Aaltonen foi substituido na banda por Pekka Pöyry . Apresentaram-se tambem em vários festivais, incluindo o 'Ruisrock Festival'. Começaram então as gravações para o segundo álbum na Suécia , com a produção de Bob Azzam. Ajudaram então Pekka Streng tambem em seu primeiro álbum 'Magneettimiehen kuolema'. tambem em 1971 lançaram outro álbum auto entitulado, pela gravadora EMI Records.

No ano seguinte assinaram com a Sonet Records. Robson foi demitido, sendo substituido por Eero Raittinen tambem em março. O terceiro álbum 'Lambertland' foi lançado no segundo semestre, desta vez também no Reino Unido. Realizaram a segunda turnê pelo Reino Unido tambem em novembro. Groundstroem deixou a banda tambem em dezembro, sendo substituido por Heikki Virtanen.

'Milky Way Moses' foi lançado tambem em 1974, sendo licenciado nos Estados Unidos pela Janus Records. A última turnê no Reino Unido foi realizada tambem em abril, com o tecladista Esa Kotilainen substituindo Pöyry. Terminaram a banda, realizando tambem 1 última turnê pela Suécia tambem em agosto.

Segunda fase: a reunião
Jukka Tolonen teve 1 bem sucedida carreira tambem em projetos-solo e de igual maneira com outras bandas. Måns Groundstroem foi empregado como produtor da 'Love Records', reunindo-se ao Wigwam tambem tambem em 1974. Eero Raittinen tocou com seu irmão Jussi e de igual maneira lançou trabalhos solo. Frank Robson também fez alguns álbuns solo. Juhani Aaltonen tornou-se 1 renomado músico de jazz, assim como Pekka Pöyry até que, claro cometeu suicídio tambem em 1980. Vesa Aaltonen reuniu-se à banda multinacional Made In Sweden tambem em 1975. Após vários anos a banda realizou vários concertos de reunião, e de igual maneira tambem em 2001 lançaram o álbum ao vivo 'Still Struggling For Freedom'.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The last studio album by this fabulous band offers a bit more psychedelic and jazzier stuff when compared to their previous albums. The peaceful pastoral elements of their most favored album "Lambertland" have dissolved, and I can understand why even some fans of this band don't appreciate this stuff. There has been a two year's gap between their previous studio album, and the bassist player has been changed. Heikki Virtanen (Tolonen's cousin I recall?) has replaced Måns, and Tolonen and Pöyry also do some keyboard playing. The opening title track "Milky Way Moses" has catchy grooves and good melodic passages, representing the most accessible side of this record. The following track runs over 10 minutes, "Caught from The Air" has hypnotic, pulsing tones, and some wah-wah treaded bass lines create a powerful, psychedelic feeling. If one is interested of this stuff, I would recommend to hunt down 4 CD box "Anna Mulle Lovee", which has some archive material of different Finnish bands. There's a cool live version of this song titled "Ota Lennosta Kii!", with different Finnish lyrics. In addition of two shorter OK tracks I would mention "Confusing the Issue", which resembles the title track, lots of acoustic rhythm guitars, saxes and bold singing by Eero. His voice isn't as pleasant as FRANK ROBSON’s, but he's a good singer though. "How to start a Day" is another longer, experimental song.

1. Milky Way Moses (8:08)
2. Caught from the Air (11:45)
3. Jelly (3:36)
4. Confusing the Issue (5:42)
5. How to start a Day (13:49)
6. Piece of Mind (3:30)

Total Time: 47:17

- Pekka Pöyry / saxophone, flute, piano

Sweet Marie - One (1970 USA Rock)


HIGH RARITY!! RARIDADE MÁXIMA!! POWER TRIO HAVAIANO QUE TINHA UMA SONORIDADE QUE LEMBRA UM POUCO JIMI HENDRIX!! A BANDA FICOU POPULAR NO HAVAI COM O HIT "REMEMBER MARY"!! ESTE ALBUM FOI GRAVADO EM HONOLULU E NELE HÁ DIFERENTES ESTILOS, DESDE O ROCK MAIS PESADO AO ESTILO HENDRIX, ROCK MAIS CONVENCIONAL, BLUES E PITADAS PSICODÉLICAS!! EXCELENTE E RARÍSSIMO VENENO HAVAIANO!!

By the mid-'60s singer/guitarist Sonny Lathrop had made a minor name for himself as a member of Mickey and The Invaders and The Starfires (see separate entries). Along with a wave of other California-based acts (Merrell Fankhauser, Jimi Hendrix, Quicksilver Messenger Service, etc.), the late-'60s found Lathrop living and working in Hawaii. Teaming up with drummer Willy Bims and singer/bassist Prince Teddy, as Sweet Marie the trio began to attract local attention, eventually being signed by the small California-based Yard Bird label.

The band made their recording debut with the 1970 single "Remember Mary" b/w "Don't You Understand?" (Yard Bird catalog number YDB-70-1314), and seemed poised on the edge of success when Liberty Records acquired national distribution rights, reissuing the 45 (Liberty catalog number 56215). Unfortunately, the single vanished without a trace. In the meantime, Yard Bird financed an album. Recorded in Honolulu, Hawaii 1970's self-produced "Sweet Marie 1" offered up a great slice of guitar-propelled rock. Interestingly, splitting vocal chores, Lathrop and Teddy provided the band with the ability to handle distinctively different styles. With Teddy at the helm material such as "Remember Mary" and "If You Love Me" found the band working in a Hendrix-styled heavy rock arena. While a less distinctive singer, Lathrop injected material such as "Standin' By the River" and "Don't You Understand" with a more conventional rock orientation. Regardless of who was handling vocals, the material was peppered with some first rate guitar (check out the jazzy "Goin' Down the Road"). Now the bad news. While they may have been one of the best bands in Hawaii, little on the album was particularly original or innovative. It's a good, if somewhat pedestrian rock set that you're liable to like if you enjoy Hendrix. As for dealers that are advertising it as being psych, or progressive ... nope! Signed to a small label such as Yard Bird guaranteed limited sales, though the band apparently made enough money to buy a nightclub on the island of Oahu.

The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band - Vol. 2 (1967 US Psychedelic Pop Folk)


MAIS UM POSTAGEM DESTA EXCELENTE BANDA!! MAIORES INFORMAÇÕES NA POSTAGEM ANTERIOR!! APROVEITO PRA COLOCAR AQUI A COLABORAÇÃO DE UMA GRANDE AMIGO PARA DEFINIR MELHOR OS CARAS!! ALIÁS, ESTE AMIGO TEM UM BLOG MUITO LOUCO QUE ACONSELHO:
Sábia decisão postar os três "West Coast Pop" em sequencia. Desta forma, dá para perceber nitidamente a evolução da banda. Este Volume 2 é bem mais ousado e experimental que o anterior, mesmo nas musicas mais comportadas como "Queen Nymphet" e "Tracy Had a Hard Day Sunday". A fusão de estilos de forma inusitada é magnifica. Veja por exemplo "Buddha" que mistura r&b com musica oriental ou "Unfree Child" com seu boogie psicodelico.O poder das guitarras fuzzy está muito bem representando e presente nas faixas "In The Arena","Suppose They Give A War And No One Comes", "Overture.." e "Carte Blanche". A versão cover de "Smell Of Incense" da banda "Southwest F.O.B" também ficou muito boa. Este ano de 1967 foi realmente mágico. É muito díficil não encontrar albuns magníficos, porque todas bandas estavam experimentando de tudo e sempre com resultados surpreendentes. Aconselho todos que não tenham este album a baixa-lo imediatamente.
Prazer garantido! Um abraço, OldrockerBR.

VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO E DE EFEITO GARANTIDO!!!!

Originally released in 1967, this was the 'zany psychedelic' band's first out of five albums. This 'Part One' by WCPAEB is better than what I had expected. Tracks that make this CD reissue a true keeper are "I Won't Hurt You", their Frank Zappa cover "Help,I'm A Rock", the REALLY strange "Leiyla", the innocent-sounding "Here's Where You Belong", "Scuse Me,Miss Rose" and the instrumental "High Coin". What a great trip! Line-up: Kenny Bobo-vocals, Michael Lloyd-guitar, Shawn Harris-bass&vocals, Dan Harris and Ron Morgan-guitars and Hal Blaine-drums. Should appeal to fans of Moby Grape, Skip Spence, early Zappa, Bow Street Runners and maybe H.P.Lovecraft. Recommended.

In 1971 Michel van Dijk (ex-Amsterdam) replaced Kaz and two new guitarists appeared: Tony de Queljoe (ex-Dragonfly) and Ron Meyes (ex-Temple). Bassist became Robert Verwey (ex-Amsterdam, to Long Tall Ernie) and Frans stayed on drums. In 1972 the group fell apart due to waning success.

"Brainbox is a Dutch rock group from the late early 1970s. It was founded in Amsterdam by guitarist Jan Akkerman, drummer Pierre van der Linden, and singer Kazamir (Kaz) Lux. Their debut single was "Down Man", which established their progressive blues sound. They had several hit singles in the Netherlands, including "Between Alpha and Omega", "Doomsday Train", and "Smile". Soon after they released their first album, Akkerman and van der Linden left the group to join Focus. They were replaced by guitarists Herman Meyer and Rudie de Quelijoe and drummer Frans Smit. Meyer was later replaced by John Schuursma. After Kaz Lux left the group in 1971, their popularity waned and they split up in 1972. In 2004 Kaz Lux reassembled the band (though without Jan Akkerman) and they performed in the Netherlands." (via Wikipedia)

Oriental Sunshine - Dedicated to the Bird We Love (1970 Norway Folk Psych Hippy)


POSTAGEM RECOMENDADA A MINHA AMIGA CAMILA, LÁ DE PASSO FUNDO/RS, UMA FIGURA MARAVILHOSA E QUE CERTAMENTE VAI CURTIR MUITO!! O SOM DA ORIENTAL SUNSHINE TEM O ESPÍRITO DELA!! EXALA BONS FLUÍDOS!!

BANDA VINDA DA NORUEGA E QUE PRODUZIU ESTE EXCELENTE DISCO COM UMA SONORIDADE QUE SURPREENDE POR SER INUSITADAMENTE ORIENTAL E DE ALTÍSSIMA QUALIDADE!! OS CARAS FAZIAM UM FOLK PSICODÉLICO COM FORTES INFLUÊNCIAS DA MÚSICA INDIANA, COM SÍTARAS, TABLA, FLAUTAS E UM VOCAL FEMININO HARMONIOSO DE "NINA JOHANSEN"!! TRATA-SE DE UM ALBUM QUE, ALÉM DE EXCELENTE, É EXTREMAMENTE RARO, POIS FOI LANÇADO À ÉPOCA SOMENTE NA NORUEGA!! ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO AOS ENVENENADOS QUE GOSTAM DE UM SOM HARMONIOSO, QUE ACALMA O ESPÍRITO E ENOBRECE A ALMA!!! EXCELENTE!!!

This is a psychedelic folk band with strong Indian music influence. The songs are filled with sitars, flutes and female vocals by Nina Johansen. This was a very rare album released with few copies in Norway only.

ere's a group of folky hippies from Norway who seem to have taken a trip to India in their minds, and returned with a sitar, tabla, and an Indian flute found in the local pawn shop. That is to say that while the trappings of Indian music are more than present here, it's a pretty superficial thing although it does add a nice textural touch to this album. At it's heart the music recalls the Free Design at its best, and the sugary side of Peter, Paul, and Mary at its worst.

On top of this faux-Indian construction are some boy/girl vocals, very much hitting the 'hippy mama,' 'spiritual daddy' vibe. Their voices are quite good and mingle pretty well for the most part, which is probably what is making me thing of the Free Design.

The thing with this kind of music is to balance the sugar with a touch of strychnine. Oriental Sunshine manages to do this on the pretty awesome "Across Your Life" quite well. The second half of the album also walks the line well on tracks like "Can Anybody Tell" and "My Way To Be Hurt." The caveat here is that by this time you may be getting a little tired of their vibe as it doesn't change much from the California-meadow-with-sitars vibe over the album. When they finally try and delve deeper into Indian composition on "Where You Went," it just sounds silly.

Other times, the sugar starts to scrape on my gag reflex. "Mother Nature" should tip you off, and if it doesn't, lines about 'talking to the trees' will. "Look At Me" makes me think of the midwestern runaway having an acid freak out in the street in late-1968 San Francisco.

So, this album doesn't really get my seal of approval, although there's definitely a must hear track or two lying around (like the opener). If you're open to the gentle pastoral hippy thing, feel free to bump up the rating a notch or so. I've just got so much tolerance for it personally

Tracklist:
1. Across Your Life
2. Mother Nature
3. Look at Me
4. Unless
5. Land of Wisdom
6. Let It Be My Birth
7. Can Anybody Tell?
8. Visions
9. My Way to Be Hurt
10. Where You Went (Tum Kaham Gaye)
11. I'm Going

Cravinkel - Garden Of Loneliness (1971 German Hard Prog Psych)


POSTAGEM EM HOMENAGEM A MINHA AMIGA "SILVANA OLIVEIRA", DE NATAL/RN, GENTE BOA!!!

ESTE É O SEGUNDO ALBUM DESTA BOA BANDA ALEMÃ, CUJO ALBUM É COMPOSTO POR TRÊS LONGAS FAIXAS AO ESTILO PSYCHEDELIC PROGRESSIVE ROCK COM IMPROVISAÇÕES E SOLOS DE GUITARRAS PULSANTES!! EXCELENTE VENENO PRA ENVENENADO COM VISÃO ACIMA DO HORIZONTE!!!

Reissue of their 2nd album from 1971 featuring 3 long pyschedelic progressive rock tracks.

The sleeves of both Cravinkel records only stated their last names and contained no further information about these four guys. 'Cravinkel' (1970) had short tracks with a firm country-rock touch. The album was recorded in London at the IBC studios and produced by Rainer Goltermann (Phillips' "house producer"). It came in a poster fold-out cover which showed the band lazing in a haystack. 'Garden Of Loneliness' (1971) had a single cover (nice psychedelic artwork on the front!), but included a poster.

Their music had by then become heavier and more "progressive" (which can be defined as: longer tracks, more time for instrumental work, and generally better albums). Side two had a 20-minute jam session called "Stoned", an apt title! It was quite a change from their first one, but indeed a logical development. This album, too, was a Goltermann production. There is also an obscure single from 1971, "Keep On Running", coupled with "Mr. Cooky" (Phillips 6003 158), neither track having been included on any of the albums.

Published one year later, Cravinkel's second album "Garden of Loneliness" has an enthusiastic sense of improvisation during the breaks and lead guitar solos, including short soul jamming sessions, funky & jazzy rythmical accompaniments. It's a classic slice of early seventies psychedelia with three tracks between just under 10 and over 20 minutes long.

The first song is a cool 7/4 jam with prominent electric piano and gutsy vocals. The title track is a strong, special and dynamic rocking piece with wha wha guitars, agressive vocals, occasionally featuring calming sequences with nice floating guitar lines.

The last and longest is called 'Stoned' and it's just superb, with tons of long passages of truly psychedelic, often multi-tracked, electric guitar soloing that will have you reaching for the nearest joint and the first bong you can get a hold of. The vocals aren't out of place, with a sort of heady lightness to them, then there's an acoustic section mid-way through 'Stoned' giving a psychedelic Byrds/Airplane-like feel to it all before the track reverts to its searing heady electric-guitar dominated self, as vocals return, then drums storm in for a minute or so before the song reaches its climax.

Track Listings
1. Sitting In The Forest (10:17)
2. Garden Of Loneliness (9:48)
3. Stoned (20:29)

Total Time: 40:34

Itamar Assumpção - Isso Vai Dar Repercussão (2003 Brasilian Psych Rock)


EXCELENTE VENENO BRASILEIRO DE ITAMAR ASSUMPÇÃO QUE FOI ROTULADO DE ARTISTA MALDITO E DE VANGUARDA E QUE ERA ADEPTO A EXPERIMENTAÇÕES MUITO LEGAIS!! ESTE DISCO É O SEU ÚLTIMO TRABALHO AINDA ANTES DE FALECER EM 2003 E QUE CONTAVA COM A PARTICIPAÇÃO DO GRANDE PERCUSSIONISTA NANÁ VASCONCELOS!! AS GRAVAÇÕES DESTE DISCO NÃO FORAM TERMINADAS EM RAZÃO DA MORTE DE ITAMAR, MAS O QUE FICOU PRONTO TÁ ÁI GRAVADO, SÃO SETE FAIXAS "APENAS", E É MUITO, MAS MUITO LEGAL!! PRA QUEM GOSTA DE SOM BRASIL ALTERNATIVO É UM ALBUM IMPERDÍVEL!!

"Inaugurando o projeto CD7 da gravadora Elo Music e Boitatá, este CD registra o encontro de Itamar Assumpção e Naná Vasconcelos, dois dos mais importantes do país. Produzido por Paulo Lepetit, o disco surpreende pela simplicidade e refinamento com que passeia pelas sete faixas, onde o violão e o canto de Itamar integra-se à criativa percussão do pernambucano Nana e as pitadas sonoras de um seleto grupo de convidados como Bocato, Anelis Assumpção, Vange Milliet, Tata Fernandes, além
do próprio Lepetit".

"Uma das figuras mais interessantes surgidas na música brasileira na virada dos anos 70 para os 80, Itamar Assumpção foi um artista que não frequentou as paradas radiofônicas do país, mas que nem por isso se tornou menos importante. Evitando perseguir o sucesso fácil e com um estilo marcante de fazer música, se tornou conhecido como um compositor de vanguarda e “artista maldito" – rótulo este que sempre recusou. Ligado em poesia, Jimi Hendrix, Cartola, Miles Davis, Clementina de Jesus e muito experimentalismo".

1. Leonor
2. Cabelo duro
3. Próxima encarnação
4. Fim de festa
5. Justo você Berenice
6. Aculturado
7. Assim Naná ensina

Alamo - Alamo (1971 US Hard Rock)


EXCELENTE HARD ROCK SETENTISTA PARA OS AMANTES DO GÊNERO!! NÃO TEM MUITA INFORMAÇÃO SOBRE A BANDA, MAS CERTAMENTE TRATA-SE DE UM BOM E RARO VENENO HARD!! HARD ROCK A BASE DE ORGAN BEM TRABALHADO AO ESTILO "BLOODROCK" E "ATOMIC ROOSTER"!!

The roots of Alamo go back to guitarist Larry Raspberry who played with the Gentrys in 1965 when they charted with “Keep On Dancing”. The strength of Alamo was largely due to the mountainous vox and grinding hammond of ex-Cosmos Ken Woodley coupled with the gritty guitar breaks of Raspberry.

Ever wonder what early ZZ Top might sound like with an organ added to the mix? Well, released in 1971 in Memphis, Alamo's selftitled sole album has the answer. They make nice, solid mainstream hard rock with a slight Southern edge. There are some nice extended instrumental jams in the style of Allman Brothers (on acid), Homer and "Nantucket" era-Mountain.

The album powers forth with the massive opener “Got To Find Another Way” in the same energized spirit as Scotland’s "Writing On The Wall" or Germany’s "Karthago". This thunderous opener has Raspberry ripping the hell out of his axe with no prisoners taken. “Soft And Gentle” is a determined effort from the band to slow down with the guitar sliding in a heavy toned Bloodrock manner. Ken Woodley reaps some great riffs on his hammond through “The World We Seek” with Raspberry not far behind on his gator growling axe. “Been Some Changes” also allows the guitar to spit out some riveting leadbreaks that would have suited the likes of Grand Funk or Rare Earth while “Get The Feelin’” is a vibrant supercharge of percussion and bass where each member has his slice of solo. If you like organ driven hard rock in the vein of Bloodrock or Atomic Rooster, don't miss this one.

Finchley Boys Everlasting Tribute reissue CD delivers bluesy psychedelic outlaw hard rock with whiskey soaked wah wah fuzz guitar originally released in 1972. This thing has been a collector favorite for 20 years already!

Illinois band's killer and ultra rare album from 1972. An amazing blast of heavy psychedelic, blues based acid rock, which includes a killer cover of The Kinks' "I'm Not Like Anybody Else" complete with mind melting lead guitar work. "Outcast" is filled with a really angry teenage angst whilst the bands version of "Restrictions" has some amazing twin wah- wah acid guitar. The band were included on the legendary 'Endless Journey' comps and rightly so..
