Fantasticaly obscure debut album by the spectacular Bacon Fat. This album is jam packed with blues rock so fine you could serve the Queen on it. Bacon Fat originally recorded the album in LA in 1969 then released it on Blue Horizon in 1970 to praise throughout the blues world; it has gone on to gather acclaim from critics and musicians alike. Vocalist and harmonica player Rod "Gingerman" Piazza leads the pack blowing his harp all the way into next week. Recommended!
Big Sleep were a Welsh band whose inflence was far beyond their sole album offering released in 1971. The band members (formerly with Eyes Of Blue) would all soon head for greater things in bands such as Gentle Giant, Man and Wild Turkey (formed by ex-Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick) and Rick Wakman'ss band. An album that features many fine songs and styles, "Bluebell Wood", (originally released on the highly collectable Pagusus label), has been sought after by collectors for many years thanks to its influence and place in the history of British progressive rock and in the annals of Welsh rock. This release is sure to appeal to followers of Man and Gentle Giant in particular.
2 great lost albums on 1 CD by this UK '70s hairy freak outfit who used to be '60s UK psych legends Vamp and also a part of Sam Gopal's Dream. This CD includes their 3rd album 'Gestalt' (originally on Deram) with the unreleased 4th album 'Blues". Both feature the outstanding guitar work of talent of Mick Hutchinson.
Interesting 1971 album by this Californian rock/folk, rock/country-band. This could have been made in 1967/68 with its psychedelic touches. Worth a listen for folk-, country- and acid rockers, provided they're not provoked by titles like "Mother Earth I Love You".
2 Originals by Kuni Kawachi one of which with the famous Japanese psych rock band Flower Travelling Band.similar to the Satori album mixed with spacey interludes and some bluesy blow-outs. For any fan of Japanese psych-rock.Digitally remastered.
A UK project by Giles Farnaby, instigated in 1971, that aimed to create a wonderful broth of electric folk music with strong medieval influences. The music is played with a combination of early and modern instruments (primarily made up of flutes, violins and various horns). An entirely unique sound is conjured up using the diverse instrumentation available to a band of the 1970's and tunes originally written for country dances way back in 1651. An interesting find - for those brave enough to indulge - and much like early Gryphon.
Long overdue reissue of this American band's debut double LP. Drivingly progressive West Coast styled jazz-tinged rock is what this band play best, and no where better than on this album's opener, the organ-led progressive pop nugget "Gypsy Queen". This band feel as if they should have been huge and this reissue is a great insight into a band dealt an unfair lot by the distracted 1970s audience. Gypsy were making great, commercially viable rock music... while no one was looking or listening.
With their unique blend of Santana inspired jazz-tinged acid rock and their love of the progressive rock sound coming out from the UK during the early 1970s, this US band were placed in the perfect position to ride the wave of popular music. Unfortunately it wasn't to be, but by the grace of Walhalla we have been granted this reissue of the band's 1971 sophmore album.
Reissue of this Danish cult classic from 1970. Full on psychedelic hard rock with searing guitar licks and Hammond organ fills. Includes a storming version "Pleasant Street" ( Tim Buckley) and an electrifying version of the Joplin classic "Piece Of My Heart". One to check out!!
Originally released on Deram in 1973, this album featured Miller Anderson who, apart from recording a solo album back in 1971, was also in The Voice, At Last The 1958 Rock'n'Roll Show, Keef Hartley Band, T Rex, and Dog Soldier (1975).The album is more or less a vehicle for Anderson's songwriting output (he wrote all of the album's material). This is a good British soulful blues rock album typical of the early 70's in that it's melodic and unpretentious. Also of note is the excellent keyboard work from Michael Weaver (also of the Keef Hartley band).
Scarce 1969 11-track debut album from this UK blues outfit (now includes 3 bonus tracks) originally on the Blue Horizon Label. This LP was produced by Mike Vernon and is more bluesy than their later efforts and is typical late '60's Blues Boom (Fleetwood Mac/John Mayall/Ground Hogs).This was the act who evolved out of the Chocolate Soup psych band The Accent.
CD re-issue of the band's second album from 1970 that was released on the Blue Horizon label.The band features Paul Butler who later went on to join Chicken Shack and Pete Wingfield on keyboards and vocals.This is great UK blues rock that sits alongside bands like Sam Apple Pie, Savoy Brown, Head Hands And Feet etc.Contains 3 bonus tracks.
Keef Hartley's first claim to fame was his stint as drummer for John Mayall, after he parted company with John he went on to form the Keef Hartley Band which swung to the rock side of British Blues and over the next few years isued numerous succesful albums. The 1970 album Battle of North and Six was his sophmore release and is now receiving a vital reissue.
Following his break away from John Mayall, Keef Hartley looked rockwards and saw it was all good. A prominent and important figure in the British Blues explosion Hartley stamped his individuality all over the albums he would release as the Keef Hartley Band. Halfbreed(1969) is, along with Battle of North West Six, one of the best albums Hartley would release either as a sidesman or as group leader and it presents Keef's fresh approach to British blues rock.
Official reissue in mini gatefold LP sleeve of Japanese mega rarity from 1971with amazing psychedelic space rock excursions, killer acid guitar, weird synth passages, drifting orchestrated sections with flute etc, freaked out guitar bass and keyboard jams..... the lot! A superb album..
CD of the essential scarce US psych/punk album from 1967 featuring Fred Cole (later of Zipper and Dead Moon) and Ed Bowen on guitar. Includes the classic "You Must Be A Witch" amongst a collection of powerful garage rock and psychedelia. Similar to a heavier version of Love's first album. Great psych art sleeve!
Reissue of the rare and excellent solo album by the UK guitarist Miller Anderson (who played with Dave Cousin's, Keef Hartley etc) Miller wrote all the songs, performed the vocals and played acoustic and electric guitars. He's joined by the late Gary Thain on bass, Neil Hubbard on additional guitars, Peter Dines on organ and piano and Mick Weaver doing all sorts of wonderful instrumentation. The result is a beautiful progressive tinged melodic rock album that's, filled with strong atmospheric songs with an environmental message. A Great album originally released on Deram.
2 Originals, both the first and second album by UK psych/prog oufit that rose of the ashes of another Uk psych outfit called Hungry Wolf the supergroup from highly respected, seasoned session man (including Clem Cattini and Peter Lee Stirling).Up there with Ugly Custard, Blue Phantom and other "progsploitation" groups.
Previously unreleased album from the legendary freaked-out '70s Japanese ensemble. Basically one seamless eerie piece, spread over two full length CDs, that incorporates various western and Eastern instruments into a trippy amorphous whole which at first seems formless, but has integral strands running through it.Acoustic instuments such as violins, tubas, trumpets and mandolins mix with various synthesizers to create a stoned ethereal sound, Stoned, and, at times, immaculate.
CD re-issue of a killer progressive rock album from 1978, it was the 2nd and Last From Tarantula.This Spanish Band blends keyboard dominated prog, Incl Mellotrons, Moogs tightly into the mix. This album has a lot more energy than the first and is a great example of progressive rock that is very similar to the Italian 70's School of prog.Check out the excellent 9 minute "La Tarantula De Granada".
Certainly one of the greatest bands to emerge from the frozen plains of Iceland, Trubrot evolved from the second greatest band to emerge from Iceland, Hljómar aka The Icelandic Beatles aka Thor's Hammer (who appeared on Diggin' For Gold & Nuggets II). Featuring the same line-up as Thor's Hammer but with a different musical direction; the group shifted its focus from their fuzz-laden Dutch beat like sound to a harder edged heavy progressive rock vibe. Music from the land where the sun rarely sets and when it does it stays down... intense! This is great music for any fan of 1970s progressive rock and should appeal to fans of King Crimson or Focus who are searching for something with big, cold, teeth.
Originally released in 1968, this is the definitive album from Mr Frog, a.k.a. MickWeaver, described as 'Bolton's answer to BOOKER T.' Jazz-rock organ sounds from the late 60s by this UK band, now much beloved of zoot-suited Mods everywhere.
CD re-issue of the hopelessly rare 'Sunshine Superfrog' originally only available as the Island label 12-track LP.12 top quality mod soul Hammond tracks and the LP never really lets up for a minute. A choice mixture of covers such as "Somebody Help Me","Sunshine Superman", "Hold On, I’m Coming" and "(Don’t Fight it) Feel It" and more the classic " original ‘"I Feel So Bad". Now here it is with one bonus track "I'm A Man".
Great '60's gargage psych album reissued at last ! Very much in the Nazz mould (but with a heavier edge) the band are prime 68 US Anglophile psych garage pop but despite a three year long association with UNI Records, Russ Regan never seemed to know quite what to do with this band. Most likely due to an almost constantly fluctuating lineup, an album wasn't released until 1969, and as good as it was, it was a case of right place wrong time. "Two Of Us" and "Devil Woman" are hard psych gems drenched in guitar. "Friends" and "Never Put Away My Love For You" are engaging ballads. "Moonfire" is vaudevillian, "I'm A Man / Here 'Tis" is blues, and "Boogie Woogie Baby" is updated fifties rock. Overall worth investigating and in many ways a minor classic long over looked.
