Only 50 copies made and originally recorded in UK 1968 like the Things to Come scenario. Heavy psych in the best Chocolate Soup mold covering 3 songs by the legendary "Five Day Rain". The first release of this album was 1978 but all recordings is from 1968.
The 1960's in London were probably the most exciting years in the history of music as groups and singers from all over the country headed for the Capital to lay down their works of art in some of the best studios in the world. Recording engineers started to play an important part in the "new" sounds that had started with a stranger’s idea.
The next band they got involved with was FIVE DAY RAIN, this time producing an album that has stood the test of time and is still selling to this day. During the making of the album Damon and Brian discovered that could write songs with each other and as Damon was a multi musician (playing drums, bass, lead guitar and keyboards), it was not long before they were laying down tracks of their own. Although busy working late into the night with their various clients they eventually had written enough songs to approach a leading music publisher. This was to be Acuff Rose, who published the great songs of The EVERLY BROTHERS and ROY ORBISON.
When they got the chance Damon and Brian would be in the studios recording their latest composition but this could take a long time as there were only the two of them. Starting with a basic acoustic guitar each instrument was added or mixed together by bouncing across to another track, that is until better multi track came along and made life a little easier. Another time saver was the use of the Mellotron which allowed them to be able to add strings and brass. As Brian Carroll remembers, "Our days were pretty hectic with Damon working through the night in one studio on the "TOMMY" sessions or with STATUS QUO and me working in another cutting records, so it was quite hard to get together. Damon was one of those people who could have made music from any instrument and I'm sure that if he had not spent so much of his life making other people's music sound good he could have gone on to bigger things. Whenever we had the spare time I would go and stay at his house in Woking (a town in southern England) where he had a spare bedroom turned into a mini demo studio. We would just kick a few ideas around until we came up with something, put it down on tape and then we went back to IBC to lay down the master tracks".
In the seventies an album was released called "TIME IS RIGHT" on the PRESIDENT label by a band named "ONE WAY TICKET". This was in fact a mixture of various bands that they have been involved with producing through HOMEGROWN, plus some of their own tracks. The original idea was for it to be an album of just their own material, but even the sleeve notes had to be made up to conceal their identities because of their contract with their publishing company.
Years later they were able to put together the album that should have been released with tracks from the Acuff Rose vaults plus some of the demos that were never finished which was released on a record label in Japan.

A Fraternity of Man foi um grupo norte americano de rock psicodélico e blues rock dos anos 60. Eles são mais famosos por sua canção de 1968, Don´t Bogart Me, que foi apresentada em 1969 na trilha sonora do filme Sem Destino - Easy Rider, escrito por Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper e Terry Southern, produzido por Fonda e dirigido por Dennis Hopper. Os membros originais da Fraternity of Man incluíam três músicos, Richie Hayward (depois fundou o Little Feat e mais tarde juntou-se ao grupo The Factory, liderado por Lowell George), Warren Klein e Kibbee Martin, ao que se juntou Elliot Ingber dos Mothers of Invention e Wagner Larry. Os solos de blues eram feitos por Elliot Ingber, e a parte psicodélica por Warren Klein, incluindo Oh No I Don´t Believe It (amplamente atribuída a Elliot, devido à sua associação com The Mothers). A banda se separou depois de gravar dois álbuns.
The Fraternity of Man is an American blues rock and psychedelic rock group from the 1960s. They are most famous for their 1968 song "Don't Bogart Me" which was featured in the 1969 road movie Easy Rider. Its original members included three members from the Lowell George-led group "The Factory" – Richie Hayward of Little Feat, Warren Klein and Martin Kibbee, who joined Elliot Ingber from The Mothers of Invention and Larry Wagner. Blues leads were handled by Elliot Ingber, and psychedelic leads were played by Warren Klein including "Oh No I Don't Believe It" (widely attributed to Elliot due to his association with the Mothers). The band broke up after recording two albums. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

QUASE NADA SE SABE SOBRE A BANDA QUE GRAVOU APENAS ESSE ALBUM NUMA EDIÇÃO PRIVADA!! AS MUSICAS SÃO INTERLIGADAS UMA NAS OUTRAS E NÃO TEM FIM, POR ISSO TEM QUE GRAVAR AS MUSICAS SEM NENHUM ESPAÇO ENTRE ELAS PRA QUE FIQUE COMO UMA AUDIÇÃO CONTÍNUA!! O SOM DOS CARAS É UM POUCO DIFÍCIL DE DESCREVER MAS É UMA MISTURA DE VIOLÕES ACUSTICOS, MELODIAS PROGRESSIVAS, FOLKS, PSICODÉLICAS, POR VEZES COM PITADAS POP MAS TUDO SOANDO MUITO TRIPPY MÍSTICO!! ESSE ALBUM ESTÁ NA LISTA DOS TOP 10 ENTRE COLECIONADORES DA PSICODELIA!! AS MASTER TAPES DESAPARECERAM HÁ MUITO TEMPO E ESSE TESOURO SOMENTE A POUCO TEMPO FOI RESGATADO DAS MAIS PROFUNDAS CATACUMBAS DA OBSCURIDADE!! ONLY FRONT COVER!!
This was described years ago in a catalog as Gandalf the Grey meets the Moody Blues. I can still not think of a better comparison than this. This is a unique and magical LP of enchanting songs with haunting melodies and harmonies backed by an elaborate and equally haunting instrumentation, led by superb (though not flashy) guitar work. Dreamy and hypnotic, an excellent mixture of folk and psych sounds,, every song is winner.
On many hardcore psych collectors' Top 10 lists (including one via Patrick Lundborg's Acid Archives book), this insanely rare and impossible-to-describe 1973 brain-fryer from Minneapolis is utterly soaked with mystic, thoroughly-dosed higher key psychedelia -- think Zerfas meets Bobb Trimble, but you're still nowhere near the lysergic laboratory. Damin Eih rambled off to India to clear his head after leaving behind this lone, legendary offering, never to be heard from again. Painstakingly and spectacularly re-mastered from two virgin copies of the original vinyl (the master tapes have long since disappeared), this treasure is now rescued from the deepest catacombs of psychedelic fatso obscurity for all to hear.

This group from Iceland played high rated rock music with interesting duel between the guitar & violin. They used progressive elements mixed on some places with folky features. One of the best Scandinavian albums from early '70.

EXCELENTE VENENO!! ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!! ESTA POSTAGEM DIFERE-SE UM POUCO DAS OUTRAS PORQUE É O ALBUM QUE TEM SETE BÔNUS TRACK!! UM PLUS DO VENENOS DO ROCK AOS ENVENENADOS!! PAN ERA UMA BANDA FORMADA NA DINAMARCA E QUE FAZIA UM ROCK PROGRESSIVO COM PITADAS PSICODÉLICAS, E TINHA COMO LÍDER E FUNDADOR O FRANCÊS “ROBERT LELIEVRE”. E O INTERESSATE DA HISTÓRIA É DE QUE ESTE FRANCÊS TAVA FUGINDO DO SERVIÇO MILITAR E POR ISSO FIXOU-SE NA DINAMARCA, ONDE ACABOU ENTÃO FORMANDO A BANDA EM 1970, ANO EM QUE TAMBÉM LANÇOU ESTE SEU ÚNICO ALBUM, SENDO QUE EM 1973 “ROBERT LELIEVRÊ” ACABOU SE SUICIDANDO E PONDO COM ISSO UM FIM A QUALQUER FUTURO DA BANDA.

THIS ALBUM HAS A CLIMATE BOOGIE BLUES ROCK VERY COOL!! EITH MANY COVERS OF OTHER BANDS!! A GOOD AND HOT POISON!!
Formed in Walthamstow, London, where they ran their own club 'The Bottleneck Blues Club', Sam Apple Pie soon attracted a large live following, with a mix of goodtime blues and boogie, interspersed with humour. In October 1969 they played the Amougies festival, in Belgium, where Frank Zappa jammed with them.
They wrote all but one of the songs on their first album Sam Apple Pie (1969) which featured lead singer Sam "Tomcat" Sampson with Mike "Tinkerbell" Smith and Steve Jolly on guitars, bassist Bob "Dog" Rennie, Malcolm Morley on keyboards and Dave Charles on drums.
In 1970 they played the first Glastonbury Festival, after which Morley and Charles left to form Help Yourself and Steve Jolly to join Procol Harum offshoot Freedom. After several more line up changes, the band recorded their second album East 17 in 1973, with Sam Sampson and Bob Rennie from the first album supported by Andy Johnson and Denny "Pancho" Barnes on guitars, and Lee Baxter Hayes on drums.
They disbanded in 1974, but reformed the next year. During the hiatus, from mid 1974 to February 1975, the band members performed with Vincent Crane as Vincent Crane's Atomic Rooster. Further line up changes included bassist Gary Fletcher, who subsequently joined The Blues Band and drummer Martin Bell. The band continued into the late 1970s, changing its name to The Vipers, (not to be confused with the new wave band of the same name) before disbanding.
Former member, Andy Johnson, died from throat cancer on Friday 5th March 2010 in Hastingwood, Essex, at the age of 62.

Popular title on the Rockadelic label and clearly above average transition document from late 60s S F Bay Area eclectisism into crude Northwest hardrock. The band was once thought to be an early version of Fraction which is not true, although their 45 (on Fraction's label) packs a similar intensity and is present here in two versions, both excellent. The LP is enjoyable all through with highpoint in a couple of hard guitarpsych excursions on side 2, and the band shows more talent and variation than the standard basement outfits from the era. Extra points for obvious teen psych remains, and even the goodtimey track about being busted for pot in S F is agreeable. One of the best of the label's more recent releases. Very nice gatefold packaging although the Stonehendge image may remind some of "Spinal Tap". (Acid Archives)

BO GRUMPUS was formed in Boston in 1967 .In the spring of 1968, Before The War was issued on the Atco label. A couple of tracks were engineered by Chris Houston, former member of The Undertakers. Felix said that the roots to his rock group, Mountain, can be traced to this recording. When Bell Records approached Felix with an offer for him to produce a record, he wanted Bo Grumpus to be the band. The problem was, The Richmond Organization (the group’s publishing company) owned the rights to the name Bo Grumpus being used for a musical group. That meant another name change.

This is a long lost gem from 1968 by a little known, somewhat psychedelic group called Bo Grumpus. Originally issued on Atco Records. 180 gram vinyl. Bo Grumpus was formed in Boston in 1967 and are not to be confused with the group using the name in the 1990s-2000s. N.D. Smart and Jim Colegrove traveled from Ohio to team up with guitarists, Eddie Mottau and Joe Hutchinson. Eddie and Joe had performed as a duo in the mid-sixties called Two Guys From Boston. They had done some recording with Noel "Paul" Stookey as their producer but had only one single released on the Scepter label. N.D. had met the Two Guys when they performed in Dayton, Ohio at the local folk club, The Lemon Tree. N.D. then both recorded and performed with them. When they asked him to join them to make a band he was prompt to say yes. N.D. asked Jim Colegrove to join them on bass.The group first performed at The Loft on Charles Street in Boston using the name The Bait Shop. It wasn't long before Eddie and Joe called their friend Felix Pappalardi in New York to come to Boston to hear the group play. Felix had played bass with The Two Guys on their recordings. At the time, Felix had already produced The Youngbloods records for RCA and was in the midst of recording Cream for their upcoming Disraeli Gears LP. Felix came to Boston and heard the group. He and his partner, Bud Prager, liked the band and set about to secure a recording/publishing deal for them. The Bait Shop moved to New York City in June, 1967 and prepared to record.

Somewhat typical Brit-pop with mild psych influences and good period flavor. Some cuts sound distinctly like a stripped down version of early Yes. No, it probably won't bowl you over, but it is certainly a very respectable album, well worthy of investigation by anyone interested in late 60's mat'l, not just Yes/Howe fanatics. There is some pretty decent songwriting here, with the almost always exceptional guitar work of Steve Howe. I think it's definitely on par with Tomorrow's only album (maybe a tad weaker), but is certainly of higher quality than it is given credit for on NET (it's very different from Yes).

Ax Genrich's first release after quitting Guru Guru has none of his signature acid guitar freakouts that made him famous on the first Guru Guru albums! Over all, this sounds a lot like a series of jams, played with friends dropping by to play, of course it helps that his friends are members of Guru Guru, Cluster and Kraan! The whole thing is very relaxed. It reminds a lot of Mani Neumier's album "Mani und Seine Freunde" which came out the same year and had a lot of the same musicians. Since it's a collection of improvisations, there's no real focus and the songs amble from one style to another. The best track is 'Kosmische Phyrze', a gentle rock-guitar based instrumental. This album may not be on anyone's 'Top Ten' list or anything but it's still a worthwhile release, as these guys are all world-class players and the musicianship is top-notch. - Acid Visions -

Group 1850 was a Dutch psychedelic rock band. The band was founded in 1964 in The Hague by the name Klits and renamed Group 1850 in 1966, when their debut single, "Misty Night" / "Look Around", appeared on the tiny Yep label. Though few copies were pressed, it established them as one of The Netherlands most original bands (alongside the Outsiders and Q65) and they soon signed to Philips. More singles ensued, in a highly psychedelic vein, including the "Mother No Head".
Their debut album, Agemo's Trip To Mother Earth, appeared in late 1968. In The Netherlands its sleeve had a 3-D image on the cover, and came with a pair of 3-D glasses. A UK release (also on Philips) did not help the band gain a footing outside The Netherlands, and Philips dropped them soon afterwards. Their next album, Paradise Now, appeared on the Dutch Discofoon label in 1969 and was only marginally less acid-influenced than its predecessor.
The band disbanded soon afterwards, but was sporadically active through the 1970s. Especially notable was another single, 1971's "Fire" / "Have You Ever Heard?", which appeared on Polydor. In subsequent years related albums have appeared by S.I.X. (Sjardin's Invisible X-factor), Sjardin's Terrible Surprise and Orange Upstairs.
