    the Pink Mice ~ 1971 ~ In Action + 1972 ~ In Synthesizer Sound

    genre: sympho prog

    country: germany

    quality : lossless (ape, cue, log,  scans)

    time: 1:11'49" size: 491 mb

     

    Cosmic Dreams:

    One of the many projects from the Lucifer's Friend-musicians, all recorded at the request of the budget price company Europa. Pink Mice was an outlet for keyboard and Moog-dominated versions of classical compositions and as you will have figured out yourself, this is of only minor interest unless you are 'switched on Bach' (i.e. enjoy the albums of Walter Carlos)!

    Tapestry od Delights:

    This was originally a very loosely knit band which came together as a sort of drinking gang/motorcycle club for Steve Took (after he was sacked from T Rex), Twink and The Deviants. They were also known as Shagrat at this time. Some of the early members soon drifted away. Their second drummer, David Bidwell, died of a heroin overdose. They eventually stabilised into line-up and after a gig at The Roundhouse signed to Polydor. This line-up cut the first 45 and album. After this Twink left to spend a spell in Morocco. Meanwhile the band, along with Hawkwind, developed a reputation as one of Britain's top hippie bands invariably playing for free at key rock festivals in the era. They often did joint 'Pinkwind' sets with Hawkwind.

    Pholas Dactylus ~ 1973 ~ Concerto Delle Menti

    genre: avant

    country: italy

    quality : lossless (ape, cue, log, booklet scans)

    time: 36'18" size: 305 mb

     

    ProgArchives:

    PHOLAS DACTYLUS was an Italian avant-garde group in the beginning of the seventies. The group consisted of Paolo Carelli (vocals), Eleino Colledet (guitar), Valentino Galbusera (keyboards), Maurizio Pancotti (keyboards), Rinaldo Linati (bass) and Giampiero Nava (drums). The guitarist Eleino Colledet was the founder of the group. The most interesting detail in their music is the vocals that are not sung but spoken. The recited lyrics are also the main reason why this group is often considered avant-garde. The music itself is traditional Italian progressive but it continuously has moments of avant-garde, jazz, Krautrock and jamming. This makes the music a blend of many influences. The music isn't exactly like any other Italian group of that time but the overall atmosphere is rather similar to the heavy progressive Italian groups of the seventies.

    The only album "Concerto Delle Menti" was released in 1973 on Magma records. This album consists of only two tracks that were divided in both sides of the LP. The group disbanded after this album and apparently none of the members continued their careers as professional musicians.

    One of the most challenging seventies Italian albums and highly recommended! ~ Markus Mattsson, FINLAND

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:

    Evolving out of the remains of The Ashes, which has included Brackett, Merrill and Robinson, they recorded their first 45 for Vault before signing with the major-label Columbia in November 1966. Much of their material was written by Brackett and Merrill and produced by Gary Usher. It was well produced and often orchestrated. Their first album was a fine debut. The stand-out track was Then Came Love, a beautiful love song on which Sandy's gorgeous voice was supported by excellent orchestration. Also of note were the goodtime sounds of You Took Too Much and Why Did l Get So High? which sounds like an anti-drug song. The chorus lyrics to this one were:-

    'Why did I get so high?'
    Just to fall from the sky
    Why did I get so high?
    Just to see our love die
    Oh, why did I get so high?'
    (from Why Did I Get So High?)
    The second LP was in similar vein, bursting with ravishing harmonies and psychedelic lyrics (e.g. "Everyone has a bomb / In their mind / And when it explodes / Blows your mind" from the transcendent Living, Loving Life). The single off the album, Turn On A Friend found its way on to the Rock Machine Turns You On compilation

    However, the end of the flower-power era sounded the death bell for the band. Their third album dispensed with the folk-rock and psychedelia in favour of gospel-rock and gruff male vocals fronting horns and girlie choruses (the CD bonus tracks, however, do include a couple of glorious Barbara Robison vocal performances). After the album's failure, Al Brackett went into session and production work, Lance Fent played for Randy Meisner and Bill Wolff (who'd also played with Sound Machine) later joined Fusion. Sadly, Sandy Robison died a few years back.

    genre: canterbury

    country: belgium

    quality : lossless (flac, cue, log, booklet scans)

    time: 1:01'16" size: 416 mb

    issue: 1996


    ProgArchives:

    Formed out of the ashes of Belgian bands such as WALLACE COLLECTION, WATERLOO and ARKHAM, PAZOP was heavily influenced by Frank ZAPPA, Canterbury bands but also classical composers such as Tchaikovski, Dvorak, Mozart, Verdi etc.. PAZOP is a typical Belgian zany group of those years and they fit quite nicely into the Belgian more experimental tradition that will later include AKSAK MABOUL, UNIVERS ZERO, COS etc.. Frank Wuyts on KB, Dirk Bogaert on vocals and flute, Patrick Cogneaux on bass and Jacky Mauer on drums and percussions of all sorts, were joined by Polish member Kuba Szczepanski on violin.

    Their sound is rather unique due to the fact that no guitars appear on the album. Although they had no problems getting a record contract and they recorded quickly they had all sorts of problem to get the album released due to commercial potential in France and had to copy their master tape to be able to release it. A second album was also partially recorded (included on the Musea release) before the band folded.

    PAZOP's music is likely to appeal strongly to all Canterbury sound fans as well as ZAPPA. Much recommended.

    Parzival ~ 1972 ~ BaRock

    genre: prog folk

    country: germany

    quality : lossless (flac, cue, log, covers)

    time: 50'16" size: 299 mb

     

    Cosmic Dreams:
     Along with Ougenweide, Parzival were one of the few German bands to follow in the steps of British groups like Gryphon and use medieval folklore as the basis for their refined progressive music. The nucleus of the group was the trio Lothar Siems, Walter Quintus and Thomas Oliver. Siems and Oliver had played together since 1965 in the Bremen group The Chamberlains, before joining the Quintus Ouartet. Their repertoire comprised increasingly folky styles. In 1971 they took the name Parzival and obtained a recording contract with Telefunken. Legend (1971) was a fine album of lyrical, electric folk-rock with much use of flute, violin and acoustic guitars. Featured guests were: Matthias Muller-Menckens (flute, piano), Joachim Reichhold (cello) and Hans Jaspers (viola). Some of the tracks had the slight melancholia I associate with Novalis at their best. Unlike Ougenweide and Novalis, Parzival sang in English and lacked the German distinction of the folk-rock bands on the Pilz label. Like Pell Mell, Parzival also incorporated classical music, but not in a pompous large scale manner. Technically they enjoyed the steady support of producer Konrad Plank. An obscure single ("One Day" coupled with "Souls Married To The Wind") followed in 1972.
    Their second and sadly last album BaRock emerged at the beginning of 1973. The group had expanded with the addition of cellist Walter v. Seydlitz and helped by Muller-Menckens and Harald Konietzko (bass, vocals). This was similar to their first album, although in parts closer to rock than Legend. Parzival's legacy is to have recorded two of the best German folk-rock albums which avoided the trappings of over-ambition. Most of their songs were short, melodic, charming and beautiful. For this reason, their original albums are fast increasing in value, currently a bit short of 100 DEM each.

    Pangea ~ 1976 ~ Invasori

    genre: prog

    country: italy

    quality : lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)

    time: 48'07" size: 250 mb

     

    ProgArchives:

    Pangea was really just a name given to the solo project of Mauro Paoluzzi, a producer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist. He produced, among others, the two albums by the jazz-rock outfit Madrugada. Their bassist Billi Zanelli and keyboardist Gianfranco Pinto returned the favor here by joining this "band" called Pangea. They are joined by Paoluzzi's wife Luciana on vocals and Claudio Pascoli on saxophone. Released (or nearly so, as noted) in 1976 "Invasori" is one strange fish. The album is a sound painting, an avant-garde work covering a variety of styles. There is no other output from the group. ~ Jim Russell
