Aardvark - Aardvark (1970 UK Hard Rock Progressive Japan remastered)



NO ELECTRIC GUITAR!! KEYBOARDS RIFFS!!!!!
QUE BELO VENENO!! SOM PODEROSO E MUITO LEGAL!! O CURIOSO DESTE DISCO É QUE O GRUPO NÃO USA GUITARRA ELÉTRICA E MESMO ASSIM FAZ UM ROCK PROGRESSIVO DE PRIMEIRA LINHA, VISTO QUE O ORGAN HAMMOND SIMULA O TRABALHO DE UMA GUITARRA DISTORCIDA!!! OUTRO DESTAQUE DA BANDA É QUE, ORIGINALMENTE, TORNARAM-SE CONHECIDOS PRINCIPALMENTE PORQUE O TECLADO QUE CORRE SOLTO FICA POR CONTA DO TECLADISTA STEVE MILLINER QUE JÁ TOCOU NAS BANDAS BLACK CAT BONES, LEAF HOUND, ODDISSEY E FREE!!! BANDA PORRADA E INOVADORA NO SENTIDO DE NÃO USAR GUITARRA ELÉTRICA!!! VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!!!

A prog act without a guitar player? That's exactly what this early 70's British foursome is. Originally, they became known mainly because Paul Kossof and Simon Kirke played in the band before leaving to form legendary band FREE. From then on, AARDVARK were mostly a studio act and by the time they recorded their only album, the line-up consisted of Stan Aldous (bass), Frank Clark (drums), Steve Milliner (keyboards, recorder, vibraphone) and Dave Skillin (vocals).

Comparisons are not easy but one could probably say their music has the power of EMERSON, LAKE & POWELL mixed in with a little R&B à la PROCOL HARUM and early MOODY BLUES. Shades of GRYPHON, GREENSLADE and PINK FLOYD are also present.As is to be expected, AARDVARK's material is highly keyboard oriented, the brunt of the music being carried by the fuzzed-up Hammond organ which more or less simulates the job of a distorted guitar. The soaring vocals by Skillin are pleasant and the music, although not highly original and somewhat lacking in variety, is quite melodic - nice 60's sounding melodies.

The album contains some ear-friendly piano/keyboard interplay as well as some good R&B guitar riffs and harmonic choruses. The low points: following the fashion of the early 70's, many tracks drag on far too long. Also, possibly because the dominant Hammond did not stand the test of time, the album unfortunately sounds quite outdated. Finally, the cuts that work best tend to be the less progressive ones.
Overall, AARDVARK is an honest musical effort for the times, an interesting early art rock experiment with a slight progressive edge.Recommended strictly for collectors of early 70's, heavy organ-dominated prog. Fans of SPRING, CRESSIDA or FIELDS should also give them a try.

Glory - A Meat Music Sampler 1969


Um projeto de estúdio criado em 1969 pelo produtor, vocalista e percussionista Linden Hudson. O álbum é o resultado de longas jam sessions. A guitarra ácida de Ted Hawley dá uma vibe blues que lembra o Billy Gibbons do período da Moving Sidewalks. O album inclui intensos momentos acústicos com gaita e percussão.

A studio project created in 1969 by producer, vocalist, and percussionist Linden Hudson. The album, released on Texas Revolution Records that same year, is the result of long jam sessions. The acid guitar of Ted Hawley gives a blues vibe that reminds one of the Billy Gibbons of the Moving Sidewalk period. Including intense acoustic moments with harmonica and percussion. One of the best kept secrets of the great ’70s rock tradition.

Glory - On the Air (1970)


Banda formada em San Diego, California. Este registro foi gravado em uma rádio local em junho de 1970, lançado apenas em 2002. É um rock n' roll bem cru e despretensioso, mas executado com firmeza e com bom instrumental, com ótimos vocais e solos de guitarra matadores. Soa como um Demian mais inflamado, remetendo aos melhores momentos da Alex Harvey Band, em um tom garageiro de jam-sessions na pegada do Sweet Smoke, acrescido de uma boa dose extra de veneno.

Q65 - Revival (1969 Holanda Garage Rock Psych)



Q65 FOI FORMADA EM 1965 QUANDO "JOOP ROELOFS" E "FRANK NUYENS" DECIDEM MONTAR UMA BANDA RYTHM BLUES COM O CANTOR "WILLEM BIELER"!! POSTERIORMENTE, DEVIDO A PROBLEMAS COM DROGAS DE WILLEN, A BANDA SE SEPAROU TEMPORARIAMENTE EM 1968 PRA DEPOIS VOLTAR REFORMADA EM 1969,!! ESTE ÓTIMO QUINTETO HOLANDES TINHA NA SUA FORMAÇÃO GRANDES MUSICOS COMO "FRANK NUYENS", EX-CUBY & THE BLIZZARDS E RAINMAN E "JAY BAAR", EX-CUBY & THE BLIZZARDS!! ESSE ALBUM É COMPOSTO POR SINGLES E O ULTIMO MATERIAL LANÇADO PELA BANDA!! MELLOTRON E GUITARRA TRIPPY COM UMA SONORIDADE COMPARÁVEL A BANDA PRETTY THINGS!! É PURA GARAGEM COM RHYTHM BLUES E PITADAS PSICODÉLICAS!! AMIGOS CONSUMIDORES ESTE É UM VENENO MUITO BOM E DE DIFÍCIL AQUISIÇÃO!! COISA RARA!! DA LATA!!

Q65 was formed in early 1965 when guitarists Joop Roelofs and Frank Nuyens (Ex-Cuby &The Blizzards e Rainman) decide to start a band with singer Willem Bieler. The line-up is completed by bass player Peter Vink and drummer Jay Baar (Ex-Cuby & The Blizzards). The band is inspired by Rhythm and Blues traditionals and the songs of Robert Johnson and Willie Dixon as well as The Kinks, The Animals and The Rolling Stones. Q65 started their performances in the Spring of 1965. During a concert at skating rink De Eenhoorn, they met producer Peter Koelewijn. Very impressed by their show, he invited them to an audition at the Phonogram studio, where they record two of their own songs: And Your Kind and You're The Victor. Koelewijn decided to release them on vinyl. In January 1966, their debut single You're The Victor was released and later peaked at #11 on the Dutch Top 40. Then Hans van Hemert replaced Koelewijn. Two other chart toppers reached the Dutch charts the same year: The Life I Live (#5) and I Despise You (#19). Under Van Hemert's guidance their first album entitled Revolution was recorded and released by Decca Records. In 1967, they topped the charts once again with the singles From Above (#13) and World of birds (#8). Due to drug problems and military service duties of singer Wim Bieler, Q65 disbanded in 1968. Q 65 reformed in 1970 with Beer Klaasse on drums, and signed to Negram Records, staying together for one year and two LPs, Afghanistan and We Are Gonna Make It, which had a slightly more psychedelic orientation. The Q 65's line-up changed during the early 1970s as Nuyens exited to join Baar in a band called Rainman, while Q 65 continued with a new line-up, featuring John Frederikz on vocals and Joop van Nimwegan on guitar.

PELA CAPA DO DISCO JÁ SE VÊ QUE O CARA GRAVOU ESSE DISCO NO CLIMA DO CAMPO!! PRA VIAJAR TRANQUILO!!

Originally released only in Holland, this is the first CD reissue of the superb 1970 solo LP from Frank Nuyens aka Rainman -- the lead guitarist of legendary Dutch blues/psych-rockers, Q65 and Cubby & The BlizzHe released this solo debut in Holland on Negram in 1971 in between stints in Q65. The title track is a saucer-eyed headnodder with excellent CSNY harmonies, and congas, flute and piano add a psychedelic Bee Gees vibe to "Natural Man", suggesting Nuyens kept his ear to the undergound UK radio of the day. "Don't" is soothing, acoustic Tull, and the rest of the album beams with laidback folk with psychedelic flourishes, like the Lennonesque "You Will Be Freed By Me" and the dreamy melancholia of "Get You To Come Through. Elsewhere, "They Didn't Feel" is a marvellous blend of Neil Young and The James Gang with a touch of "No Expectations" tossed in for good measure, and there's a rockabilly twang to "The Joy That Is Inside." The package completes with the chirpy pop of the non-LP single, "The Bird." So, while fans of Q65's heavy blues may be disappointed, Nuyens has expanded his palette enough to attract a wider audience, not just fans of cult, Dutch psychedelic r&b.-- Jeff Penczak

The Beginning - This Is (1998 UK Psych Acid Bluesy Rock)



AQUI ESTAMOS DIANTE DE UM DOS GRANDES GRUPOS PERDIDOS DO ROCK!! ESSE É O ÚNICO REGISTRO DOS CARAS COM UMA SONORIDADE QUE É UMA COMBINAÇÃO PSYCHEDELIC ROCK, ACID ROCK, STONER, BLUES E PASSAGENS TRIPPY COM DUAS GUITARRAS!! ALGUMA SEMELHANÇA COM PINK FLOYD PODE SER VERIFICADA, BEM COMO QUICKSILVER MESSENGER SERVICE, GRATEFUL DEAD E LED ZEPPELIN!! ELES SE REUNIRAM EM 1998 E GRAVARAM ESSA JÓIA RARA QUE TEM UMA SONORIDADE DESCARADAMENTE RETRÔ ANOS 60, UM TÍPICO PSYCH FUZZ ROCK DE SAN FRANCISCO!! O ALBUM FICOU ADORMECIDO POR UMA DÉCADA ATÉ QUE FOI DESCOBERTO PELA GRAVADORA MOLTEN RECORDS E LANÇADO, PORÉM, LOGO ESGOTADO!! HOJE ESTÁ DISPONÍVEL SOMENTE PELA GRAVADORA ALEMà"ELEKTROHASCH"!! VENENO RARO E RECOMENDADO!!

This one and only album from The beginning was released 7 years after its recording, in 2005.  It is a combination of psychedelic rock, with a rather stoner and bluesy trippy-ness. It is nice to hear is how just sporadically psychedelic ideas from the previous heritage of rock sips through, like a small bass line of the inspired “Interstellar Overdrive” (Pink Floyd), or ways of psychrock improvisation, but not too much distracts from the acid trip.

The Seeds - Fallin' Off The Edge (1965-67 US Garage Psych Rock)



UM DOS LPs MAIS RAROS DA BANDA E QUE NOS APRESENTA UMA COMPILAÇÃO DE RARIDADES, TAKES ALTERNATIVOS DE MUSICAS MAIS CONHECIDAS EM VERSÕES SUPERFICIALMENTE DIFERENTES DAS ORIGINAIS!! A SONORIDADE AQUI É GARAGEM BLUESY PSYCH DE PRIMEIRA LINHA!! ESSE FOI UM DOS PRIMEIROS LPs QUE ADQUIRI DA BANDA E O MESMO AINDA NÃO FOI REEDITADO EM CD!! VENENO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO PRA QUEM GOSTA DA BANDA E DO ESTILO!!

This is GNP Crescendo '77. collection of outakes and non-LP singles trax recorded circa 66/67. The title track to this collection of rarities and alternate takes, "Fallin' off the Edge (Of My Mind)," is, improbably enough, a psychedelic hoe-down. Literally. Sure, the lyrics are suitably mind-bending, but Jan Savage's guitar playing is pure country. It works in spite of itself, but is hardly representative of the rest of the material (it's the only song co-written by Kim Fowley). It also proves that, contrary to popular belief, the Seeds did have other musical interests beyond psych, garage, and blues. "Daisy Mae," the B-side to "Can't Seem to Make You Mine," is another oddity. In it, Sky Saxon (b. Richard Marsh) wraps his wavery, sandpaper-edged tenor around an R&B number that sounds like a cross between Buddy Holly and Little Richard. The other numbers adhere to a more traditional psych standard. They include alternate versions of "Wind Blows Your Hair" (plus a reprise), "Nobody Spoil My Fun," and "Pushin' Too Hard," their signature hit. Although there's no topping their first two releases, Seeds and Web of Sound, fans are sure to find Fallin' off the Edge of interest.
