Satin Whale - Desert Places (1974 German Prog Jazz Blues)

ÓTIMA BANDA ALEMÃ QUE FAZIA UM PROG ROCK COM PITADAS DE JAZZ E BLUES REGADO A FLAUTA, SAX, ORGAN HAMMOND E SOLOS DE GUITARRAS MUITO LEGAL E BEM TRABALHADO!! NADA DE MUITA VIAGEM E UM SOM BEM OBJETIVO!! A FLAUTA SOA FORTE E MUITAS VEZES COMO OS BONS TEMPOS DE JETHRO TULL!! A DIVERSIDADE MUSICAL DOS CARAS ERA FANTÁSTICA E O DESTAQUE FICA POR CONTA DO EXCELENTE GUITARRISTA E FLAUTISTA "DIETER ROESBERG"!! O CARA ERA FERA!! ÓTIMO E RECOMENDADO VENENO!!

First album by this rather late Krautrock band was undoubtedly their very best one. Actually the only point of criticism one could quote is the fact that it might have sounded already a bit dated in its year of release. Being much in the vein of early Tull, Iron Butterfly, Cream or The Doors the tracks presented here are a wonderful demonstration of this early Art Rock or Proto-Prog style. The title song is the one reminding the most to Tull with a soaring flute and heavy organ. It's a very powerful and grooving one with a sort of psychedelic blues guitar play that's bringing Cream back to mind. "Seasons Of Life" is even in a stronger psychedelic vein, kinda The Doors meet Cream or Iron Butterfly, very groovin' stuff as well. This record doesn't let your foot stand still only for one second. Though it might be not considered as that much progressive for the year of 1974 "Desert Places" was nevertheless a brilliant album in organ driven Art Rock typical for beginning seventies.Probably not essential for any prog collector in general, but highly recommended for fans of jammin' and groovin' early 70s psychedelic blues rock!

One St. Stephen - Same (1975 US Hard Soft Acid Rock)

EXCELENTE ALBUM QUE NA ÉPOCA DE SUA GRAVAÇÃO TEVE UMA TIRAGEM MUITO LIMITADA!! A SONORIDADE É MUITO LEGAL E COM UM VOCAL MARAVILHOSO QUE EM CERTOS MOMENTOS PENSAMOS ESTAR ESCUTANDO SYD BARRET!! MAS O QUE VAGA PELA NOSSA MENTE É MESMO JIM MORRISON REENCARNADO E CANTANDO MAGISTRALMENTE!! CONSIDERO ESSE DISCO UMA PEQUENA OBRA PRIMA E QUE ENTRA SUAVE NO OUVIDO E PASSEIA SERENAMENTE EM NOSSO CÉREBRO (POR VEZES LIMITADO)!!

DON L. PATTERSON PARA GRAVAR O DISCO USOU O PSEUDONIMO DE "ON ST. STEPHEN" EM HOMENAGEM A UM MUSICO DE JAZZ FAMOSO E DEPOIS DESSE ALBUM, APESAR DE UMA TIRAGEM PEQUENA, A GENIALIDADE MUSICAL DO CARA SE ESPALHOU E COM ISSO TEVE OFERTA DE DUAS GRANDES GRAVADORAS PARA PRODUZIR MAIS UM ALBUM, PORÉM NÃO ACEITOU E SAIU FORA DA CENA MUSICAL!! ONE ST. STEPHEN TEM SIDO UM ALBUM MUITO PROCURADO E CULTUADO POR COLECIONADORES!!

This is an album which is generally regarded as one of the finest heavy acid psych albums of its time. One reviewer described it thus: 'Side 1 opens and closes with extended, awesome moody psychers which will blow you away. Poe, heroin and Jim Morrison all help shape the One St. Stephen outlook, which results in one of the more distinct late autumnal moods [ever] manifested on vinyl. Good vocals, some howling fuzz and occasional use of Moog in typical '70s acidhead fashion'.

Don L. Patterson wrote the music and lyrics, was lead vocalist, played electric guitars, directed and produced the album 'One St. Stephen' in March of 1975. The music was originally intended for a film Don was developing with the working title 'The Devil's Reservation'. Due to a famous Jazz musician with the same name, Don used the alias of One St. Stephen. The music was recorded at the legendary Owl Studios (Columbus, Ohio), using the same 8-channel analog recording deck that was used to tape the audio at Woodstock in 1969. Because everyone who heard the LP wanted a copy, Don pressed a very limited amount from Queen City Record Company (Cincinnati Ohio).

He also designed the album sleeve and label. The response by regional disc jockeys was phenomenal. The album got a lot of regional air play. A few months later, Don was offered a recording contract from two major record companies in New York City. Don was asked to tour. Don was never interested in the world of rock and walked away from a music future. Since then the album has been sought by record collectors around the world and bootlegged twice in Europe. This is the first time he has ever released the LP on CD.

Tetragon - Stretch (1971 German Prog Jazz Rock Fusion)

SUCESSORA DE OUTRA BOA BANDA CHAMADA TRIKOLON (JÁ POSTADA RECENTEMENTE AQUI NO BLOG) ESSA ÓTIMA E OBSCURA BANDA ALEMÃ FAZIA UM ROCK PROGRESSIVO COM LONGAS FAIXAS NUMA FUSION ENTRE O PROGRESSIVO, JAZZ E O PSICODELISMO!! COM O NOME DE TETRAGON OS CARAS LANÇARAM APENAS ESSE ALBUM!! MAIS UM VENENO ALEMÃO RELANÇADO PELO EXCELENTE SELO "GARDEN OF DELIGHTS"!! RECOMENDADO!!

TETRAGON, successor of TRIKOLON, were founded in Osnabrück (Lower Saxony) in the spring of 1971. They released their first and only LP, Nature, in the same year. At the end of 1971, Tetragon recorded in a Hamburg studio five long tracks in their well-proven style for their second LP, the release of which, however, failed. Fortunately, the master tape has survived until the present day, so that now, 38 years past schedule, the work is released on CD. Three of the five songs were written by the band, one by Eddie Harris (“Listen here”) and one by John McLaughlin (“Dragon song”). The two latter ones had already been worked on by Brian Auger. Especially remarkable are HENDRIK SCHAPER’s exceptional play on keyboards and JURGEN JAEHNER’s hot guitar play. The other two, however, are their equals in skill and talent.

REPOST: Missus Beastly - Nara Asst Incense (1970 German Rock Prog Psych)

BANDA ALEMÃ DE EXCELENTE SONORIDADE!! FLAUTAS, ORGAN E GUITARRAS PSICODÉLICAS FAZEM DESTE DISCO UMA OBRA PRIMA!! O CARA DA FLAUTA "HANSI FICHER" DEPOIS FORMOU A BANDA "EMBRYO" E O CARA DA PERCUSSÃO "DIETER SERFAS" INTEGROU DEPOIS A BANDA "AMON DUUL II"!! NARA ASST INCENSE É UM DE MEUS DISCOS PREDILETOS!! VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!!

Missus Beastley were among the earliest bands of the new progressive rock wave, being foundedin Herford in 1968, recorded their debut album in January 1970 with Hansi Fischer (flute, fromXhol, later Embryo) and Dieter Serfas (pereussion, from Amon Duul II). This was a glimpse intoearly German underground jazz-rock with lots of flute, psychedelic organ and guitars.

The bandcould be compared to Xhol and Embryo. Soon after the recordings finished, Missus Beastleyexpanded to become a sextet with Paul Vincent and Michael Scholz. Half a year later, Vincentwas replaced by Roman Bunka and a seventh member, Jurgen Benz, joined. By the end of theyear, the band were bankrupt and their activities terminated. Nothing more was heard fromMissus Beastley until Autumn 1973, when reformed the band and went on tour in Germany.

Thisquintet (D) also recorded an album for Nova in 1974, containing a slick, funky jazz-rock, totallydifferent to the previous album. Lutz Oldemeier and Miekautsch left in 1975 to be replaced byButze Fischer and Burkard Schmidt. In the interim, Jim McGillivray of Epitaph drummed threemonths for Missus Beastley. Along with Embryo, Ton Steine Scherben and Sparifankal, MissusBeastley founded the independent record company April.

Badge & Company - Badge & Company (1977 US Southern Blues Rock Psych)

EXCELENTE POWER TRIO AMERICANO QUE FAZIA UM BOM SOUTHERN ROCK COM LEVADAS BLUES E PITADAS PSICODÉLICAS BEM AO ESTILO DA BANDA MOVING SIDEWALKS E LEMBRANDO, MAS SÓ LEMBRANDO UM POUCO ZZ TOP, MAS BEM MAIS LEGAL QUE ESSA ULTIMA PRINCIPALMENTE!! EXCELENTE E RARO VENENO!! RECOMENDADO!!
The official and first-ever CD reissue of the USA 1977 Psych-Blues LP!! Badge & Company was an American psychedelic southern blues rock group from Augusta. The band formed in 1976 with original members Randy E. Coven (vocals , bass & fiddle ), lead guitarist Terry D. Williams and drummer Virgil Eugene Martin. A supernatural psychedelic blues delight like Moving Sidewalks & early ZZ Top. This southern rock trio surgically strikes at what most like-genre bands can only feign. This little ol' album is simply soul-quenching. A prime side of beefed up well done Texan psychedelica and weirdness smothered in spicy blues.

Necronomicon - Tips Zum Selbstmord (1972 German Hard Psych Prog Rock)

MAIS UM RELANÇAMENTO DO SELO "GARDEN OF DELIGHTS"!! BANDA OBSCURA ALEMÃ DE UM ALBUM SÓ E QUE FAZIA UM HARD PSICODÉLICO BEM LEGAL REGADO A EXCELENTES RIFFS DE GUITARRA E TECLADOS TUDO NUM CLIMA QUE SOA MEIO SOMBRIO E GARAGEIRO!! VENENO RECOMENDADO!!

With a title that means "How to Commit Suicide," Necronomicon's one album, from 1972, featured bleak progressive garage rock with long instrumental passages. With wailing acid guitar solos, dark organ swirls, and angst-ridden singing in German, Necronomicon has created a dark and powerful vision that blends psychedelic and progressive music with a proto-punk garage band sensibility. They throw in some operatic vocals on several of the tracks; these are most effective in a couple places on "Requiem der Natur" to make the music sound almost like the Slovenian band Laibach.

They were one of the few Belgian blues-rock groups that were on par with several Dutch ones, such as Cuby & The Blizzards and Livin' Blues. They wrote their own material, mostly long slow blues numbers augmented by electric guitars and screaming vocals. The band didn't last much more than a year before they called it a day. Michael Heslop later formed Doctor Downtrip.

Short Cross -Arising (1972 US Heavy Psych Blues)

BOA BANDA AMERICANA E SEU ALBUM RARO QUE MUSICALMENTE PODE SER DEFINIDO COMO HARD BLUES PSICODÉLICO OU ATÉ MESMO UMA SEMELHANÇA COM BOOGIE ROCK!! NA AUDIÇÃO NOTA-SE QUE HÁ UM BOM TRABALHO DE GUITARRA E QUE TODOS SEUS INTEGRANTES SÃO MUSICOS DE QUALIDADE CONSIDERANDO QUE NA ÉPOCA DA GRAVAÇÃO DO ALBUM NENHUM DOS COMPONENTES TINHA MAIS DE 18 ANOS!! A GRAVAÇÃO TEVE UM BAIXO ORÇAMENTO E EDIÇÃO LIMITADA!! UM BOM VENENO!!

Reissue of wonderful early 70s hard rock bluesy private press record with lengthy jamming guitars and great vibe.From Sandston, Virginia, this band evolved out of the Hustlers, whose members included, at various stages, ex-Reactors Steve Hicks and ex-Outlaws Butch Owens alongside core members Velpo Robertson, Gray McCalley and Ben Luck. The latter left to join the Barracudas, of "A Plane View" LP fame.

Their rare album can best be described as heavy psychedelic blues, at its purest on "Suicide Blues". There's plenty of good guitar work throughout, "Wastin' Time", "Just Don't Care", "Till We Reach The Sun" and "Hobo Love Song" all have their share, whilst "Ellen" is a slow bluesy ballad. The album lacks sufficient originality to make it special but if this musical genre is where you're at you shouldn't be disappointed.

REPOST: Twenty Sixty Six And Then - Reflections (1973 German Heavy Progressive Rock)

GRUPO ALEMÃO COM GRANDE ENERGIA, SOM POTENTE E FURIOSO! HARD ROCK PSICODÉLICO DE EXCELENTE QUALIDADE!! VEJAM A RESENHA ESCRITA PELO MEU GRANDE PARCEIRO E AMIGO WAGNER XAVIER DO SITE ROCK RARO QUE REFLETE BEM A HISTÓRIA DA BANDA!!

A banda alemã Twenty Sixty Six and Then conseguiu a proeza de lançar, num único disco, um conjunto de canções onde a qualidade, criatividade e capacidade foram a tônica do álbum, famoso e raríssimo para os colecionadores. Lançado em 1972, Reflections traz grandes canções (tanto na qualidade quanto na duração), onde os teclados esbanjam vitalidade e criatividade.

Lamentavelmente, este álbum teve suas fitas originais perdidas após seu lançamento, fazendo com que apenas alguns felizardos conseguissem sua cópia em vinil. Finalmente na década de 90, o projeto de relançamento do álbum foi criado, utilizando gravações anteriores às originais, além de 2 novas faixas extras. O projeto, chamado de Reflections on the Past foi lançado pela excelente Second Battle, com capa original em digipack, fotos em preto e branco e um ótimo acabamento gráfico, que nos brinda com o álbum na integra, em uma competente remasterização que faz brilhar ainda o potencial desta excelente banda.

A primeira faixa é At My Home (7:57), um hard rock com excelente condução dos teclados, flauta ao fundo, tocada pelo convidado Wolfang Schonbrot, e uma guitarra também bem legal. O vocal rouco de Geff Harrison, que apesar de não ter uma excelente voz, acaba não comprometendo. A guitarra lembra bastante Blackmore nos 3 primeiros álbuns do Deep Purple.

Na segunda, chamada Autumn (9:06), o vocal se encaixa bem mais com o andamento lento da música. Novamente o destaque é o teclado, com algumas passagens francamente progressivas. Um ótimo som!!!

A próxima é Butterking (7:17), que começa um pouco estranha, com vocal apenas falado e acompanhamento de uma vigorosa bateria. Na seqüência entra o teclado no melhor estilo Jon Lord. Torna-se um das melhores do disco, inclusive lembrando o grande Frank Zappa nos melhores momentos de Joe's Garage, com aqueles bate papos musicais durante o andamento nada previsível da musica.

A quarta música é a faixa tema - Reflections on the Future (15:48). Apenas pelo tempo pode-se perceber o que vem pela frente: belas passagens, solos de guitarra de extremo bom gosto, enfim, a canção mais complexa do disco.

Na seqüência temos The Way That I Feel Today (11:11), canção também de rara beleza. Também de longo alcance, a faixa traz um andamento mais jazzístico, onde o piano e o baixo se destacam. É a canção mais sofisticada do álbum. A bateria com levada bem quebrada e, em algumas vezes, a flauta a la Ian Anderson nos brinda com um som pra lá de interessante. O vocal carregado de emoção acaba se encaixando perfeitamente na música. A letra colabora com um certo romantismo, principalmente em frases como "How would you feel after she's gone"... Linda canção...

As duas ultimas faixas são os bônus incluídos nesta edição e que também não fazem por menos. A primeira é I Wanna Stay (3:59) é um hard rock bem interessante, com andamento mais cadenciado. Para finalizar, Time Can't Take Away (4:30), que encerra o disco em alto astral, pois se trata de uma bela balada, com um backing vocal de fazer inveja a qualquer um, além de um refrão de arrepiar. Realmente um grand finale para uma obra prima.

Sem dúvida, apesar da curtíssima carreira, o Twenty Sixty Six and Then conseguiu pegar a onda do momento e gravaram um dos melhores álbuns do excelente rock alemão em todos os tempos.

Welsh band Aquila arose from the ashes of late 1960's band BLONDE ON BLONDE. Founding guitarist Ralph Denyer left that band in 1970 to work on his Aquila project. Blonde on Blonde recruited new vocalist/guitarist David Thomas (an old school friend of Denyer) to replace Denyer, and went on to record their best album "Rebirth".

Aquila's music, while substantially based in art rock, draws in influences from a diverse range of influences, including jazz and heavy rock. Deyner was the clear leader of the band, writing all the songs on their sole release, a self titled album.

Quite what happened to the band thereafter, and why they split up so quickly is something of a mystery, especially since they were signed o a major label (RCA). Wind instrumentalist George Lee joined ARRIVAL, a mainly vocal collaboration who enjoyed brief singles success (before his arrival with "Friends". (Answers.com notes that this is the same George Lee who was born in Ghana, real name Kwame Narh Kojo Larnyoh, who was a member of Burning Spear and Toots & the Maytals, but I suspect this is inaccurate.)

Dies Irae - First (1971 German Hard Rock Psych Bluesy)

BANDA ALEMÃ QUE GRAVOU ESSE UNICO ALBUM TOTALMENTE OBSCURO!! OS CARAS FAZIAM UM HARD ROCK BLUES COM PITADAS PROGRESSIVAS E COM MUITA HARMÔNICA!! ALIÁS NA FAIXA "TIRED" RAINER GERD LITERALMENTE DETONA A HARMÔNICA NUM SOLO DUELADO COM A GUITARRA DE HARALD THOMAS!! VENENO ALEMÃO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!! ** VEJAM ABAIXO NOS COMENTÁRIOS O RECADO QUE O PRÓPRIO VOCALISTA DA BANDA DEIXOU AQUI RECENTEMENTE!!
Very little is known about Dies Irae, except that it is rumoured that Manfred von Bohr started his career with them. They were hardly typical of bands on the Pilz label, with a heavy brand of Krautrock, blending in jazz, blues and psychedelic touches. Mostly they used straight rock structures, with much psychedelic spice, and good songs. All creatively and imaginatively played, and inter-cut with all sorts of surprising twists and turns. Maybe less distinctive than most Krautrock of the era, Dies Irae were nonetheless excellent! Virus meets Mc Church Soundroom. Psychedelic Bluesrock at its Best!Produced for legendary Pilz - label and engineered by Conny Planck in 1971.

Out Of Focus - Palermo (1972 German Prog Rock Jazzy)

TERCEIRO DISCO DESSA EXCELENTE BANDA ALEMÃ GRAVADO AO VIVO EM 1972 EM PALERMO NA ITÁLIA E RELANÇADO PELO EXCELENTE SELO "GARDEN OF DELIGHTS"!! O SOM CAPTURADO PELOS GRAVADORES É DE ÓTIMA QUALIDADE!! A BANDA TINHA O ESTILO DA BANDA KOLLECTIVE COM MUITO SAXOFONE, FLAUTA E ORGAN!! É ROCK PROGRESSIVO PURO E DO BOM!! VENENO RARÍSSIMO E RECOMENDADO!!

(Garden Of Delights) Catalog no: CD135

Palermo 1972 is Out of Focus’s third album, and what a progressive rock journey it is. Consisting of six tracks, recorded live at the Teatro Biondo, Palermo, Italy, on the twenty-six of May 1972, all of which flow in the style of Soft Machine or Kollective, with Saxophones, Flutes, Organs, and Drum solo’s a plenty. It is pure Progressive Rock, often spacey, mellow, chaotic, and all the while it takes the listener on a definite journey somewhere, to where is totally up to the listener. But rest assured that it does spin the head, which obviously is a must for me! The quality of the recording is very good and the ambience of the concert has been captured beautifully. Also, according to the accompanying booklet, this was the best gig of their 1972 tour of Italy, and luckily, all channels on the recorder worked perfectly, as other gigs it did not function on all channels. So, what we have here is Out of Focus at their best, and it is a joy to listen to the creative energy that flows from the recording. The CD is over seventy minutes in length and it rarely pauses between tracks, giving almost constant music throughout. Most of the tracks are jazzy in a fashion; mixing rousing Sax freak out’s with tight and imaginative organic instrumental sections, and it is for this reason that I mention The Soft Machine as a likeness, although Out of Focus are not totally instrumental, there are vocals. It is well worth a listen.

REPOST: Sopwith Camel - The Miraculous Hump Returns From the Moon (1972 US Psych Prog-Folk Rock)

UM DOS MEUS ALBUNS PREDILETOS PRA VIAJAR BEM TRANQUILO!! ESSA É UMA BANDA TÍPICA PSICODÉLICA DE SAN FRANCISCO QUE LEMBRA MUITO GRATEFUL DEAD E JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, MAS COM PITADAS BEM DIFERENTES QUE MISTURAM JAZZ, ROCK E FOLK!! O INSTRUMENTAL DOS CARAS É UMA OBRA COM SÍTARAS, HARMÔNICA E PIANO ELÉTRICO!! O VOCAL MUITO LEGAL E HARMÔNICO...ENFIM...VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!! REALMENTE UMA VIAJEM BOA!!

Since i posted my favorite Camel record last time, I had to put up my favorite Sopwith Camel record as well. The Sopwith Camel is very addictive, so be careful. They sound nothing like the San Fran psych background that they come from (played headlining over the Dead and Jefferson Airplane). These guys take a sort of happy eclectic approach to their music, pulling some from jazz, but also rock and folk, with innovative instrumentation (sitar, horns, harmonica, electric piano to name a few), mellow rhythms, and a laid back vocal delivery with playful lyrics. Very listenable stuff here. They are way overlooked.
