    Achim Reichel & Machines ~ 1971 ~ Die Grune Reise

    genre: kraut

    country: germany

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

    time: 40'59" size: 287 mb

    issue: '07

     

    Cosmic Dreams:

    What a godfather of German rock Achim Reichel (born 28.1.1944) has been! His musical career started when he founded The Rattles with Herbert Hildebrand in 1961. They were kind of Liverpool-beat clones, regularly performing at the Star Club (in Hamburg), attempting to fill the vacuum when Beatles returned home. In 1968 he departed to form Wonderland. Reichel and Dostal continued to work together with more experimental music as Wonderland Band and Frankie Dymon Jr. Reichel's first four solo albums, as A.R. & Machines, were also experimental to say the least! Die Grune Reise (1971) was a twisted and whimsical work for echo-guitar, voice and bass, Reichel's idiosyncratic battle against the machines!

    Reaction ~ 1973 ~ Reaction

    genre: hard

    country: germany

    quality : mp3 (256k, scans)

    time: 33'54" size: 66 mb

     

    Cosmic Dreams:

    A "no compromise" hard rockin' trio. Little Wing, which re-released their one and only album in 1990, claimed that Reaction were a reaction against British bands like Agnes Strange and Incredible Hog. This was hardly the case, as these bands issued their albums at the same time or after Reaction (1972 and 1975). However, the German trio was an equally loud and aggressive band, eager to surpass the blues-based guitar-rock of Cream and Jimi Hendrix. If you're looking for refined, sophisticated 'art rock', please look elsewhere! Reaction contained nine pieces of primitive blues-rock-boogie the way it used to be performed. Personally I think that Peter Braun's vocals are their weakest point. This album was hardly noticed in 1972, and it seems as if Reaction soon disbanded. As a result, their album was quickly deleted and has become increasingly difficult to find. Originals now sell for 200 DEM or more. I advise you to buy the re-release with its great new artwork!

    Rare Bird ~ 1970 ~ As Your Mind Flies By

    genre: prog

    country: uk

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

    time: 37'32" size: 255 mb

    issue: 2007

     

    Tapestry of Delights:

    Rare Bird formed in London in October 1969 and began rehearsing in a room at organist's Graham Field's London apartment. Indeed Field and keyboardist Dave Kaffinetti played a key role in conceiving the group's then novel two keyboard sound. Gould proved to be a powerful vocalist and their drummer was former Turnstyle member Mark Ashton.

    Within a few weeks the group was offered a residency at London's Marquee and before the end of the year they'd issued a much acclaimed debut album, which got to No 117 in the US Charts. This included the atmospheric Sympathy, which would prove to be a minor hit here in the UK, but it was very popular on the Continent too. The final cut, God Of War, was both atmospheric and innovative in its use of percussion, whilst You Went Away and Beautiful Scarlet featured powerful vocals and good keyboards.

    As Your Mind Flies By was another fine album of keyboard-driven rock punctuated by Steve Gould's often melodramatic vocals. The whole of Side 2 was taken up by the ambitious four movement track, Flight, but the whole of Side 1 is recommended listening too. The group's line-up was expanded for Epic Forest (which was varied ranging from the heavy riffing of Hey Man to mellower numbers like House In The City and Fears Of The Night) but somehow they failed to maintain any sort of momentum over here, although they remained very popular on the Continent.

    Fred Kelly had earlier been involved in the Astral Navigations Thundermother project.

    ItalianProg:

    Founder member of Formula Tre and well respected session guitarist, Alberto Radius also had a good solo career following his band's split.

    His first solo album, regarded as one of the italian prog rarest though not particularly representative of the genre, was issued in 1972 when Formula Tre were still active, and was a sort of jam session with important italian musicians of the time, including Franz Di Cioccio from Premiata Forneria Marconi and Area's Demetrio Stratos and Giulio Capiozzo along with Gianni Dall'Aglio and Vince Tempera that were later with him in Il Volo. The album was produced by Lucio Battisti under the fantasy name of Lo Abracek

    Later works were halfway between pop and rock, with Nel ghetto from 1977 being a successful single.

    Raccomandata con Ricevuta di Ritorno - 1972 - Per...un Mondo Di Cristallo

    style: prog

    country: italy

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

    size: 191 mb

     

    ItalianProg site:

    RRR (as they were often referred to at the time due to their long difficult name) were from Rome, all coming from various minor groups.

    Their only album, Per... un mondo di cristallo, housed in a curious gatefold cover containing a nice drawing from the Up&Down Studio (as in Procession's Fiaba), mixes a typical italian prog sound with acoustic guitar, flute and keyboards in evidence, with jazz influences, and the result is sometimes disjointed, with great tracks such as Un palco di marionette mixed with less convincing jazzy tunes like Il mondo cade su di me.

    The band played in the main italian pop festivals in 1972-73 before splitting.

    Singer Regoli and guitarist Civitenga formed Samadhi, while drummer Froggio Francica played with Procession on their 1974 second album Frontiera, and for a short time with Kaleidon.

    Luciano Regoli has pursued his interest in art becoming a popular painter.

     

    GibralatEPR:

    Raccomandata Ricevuta Ritorno's Per....Un Mondo Di Cristallo is one that I've found very difficult to get into personally which intrigues me to no end. Crimson is evident here, especially with some of the dissonance that resounds throughout the album, but again this album is unquestionalbly Italian.

    When the band dissolved, Luciano Regoli (Vocals, Guitar) and Nanni Civitenga (Guitar) went on to play in Samadhi.

    Very italian, this six-piece blends some elements of Jazz, King Crimson type rock (although I'm seldom reminded of KC while listening), the early folk sound of PFM, some north African/Arabic influences, classical, and a little of the type dissonance found in the music of Area. Very tasty, with lots of dynamic stretch, excellent vocals, flute, sax, piano, this is possibly one of the best italian reissues around, certainly one of my very favorites, I'd put them right up there with classics like Il Balletto Di Bronzo, Area, Arti+Mestieri, Opus Avantra, and others. I don't know of anyone who was aware of this albums existence back in the seventies, seems like its reissue came right out of nowhere.

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:

    Formed in 1964 at Goddard College in Vermont, this band became part of a burgeoning Boston scene (well before the "Bosstown sound" hype). Contemporaries of, and often compared to, The Remains who were said to be Boston's answer to the Beatles, the Lost assumed the Stones' mantle. Musically however they were much more diverse. Whilst embracing the new Invasion sounds they did not discard their own heritage and influences - elements of rock & roll, folk and jazz were mixed into a dynamic stew by songwriters Ted Myers and Willie Alexander. Their unique strength however was having four vocalists in the band, each capable of taking the lead part. This added a new dimension to set them apart from others with an infusion of Byrds or Beach Boys influences into the melodies and finely structured vocal arrangements (coincidentally they supported the Beach Boys 1966 tour of the region). ......

    Limbus 4 ~ 1974 ~ Mandalas

    genre: fusion

    country: germany

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

    time: 37'09" size: 174 mb

    issue: 1999

     

    Cosmic Dreams:

    This little known band from Heidelberg and Karlsruhe was among the pioneers of ethnic rock fusion. Unlike bands like Embryo and Between, Limbus made almost totally improvised, spontaneous music. The result sounded as if Kluster had gone ethnic! Cosmic Music Experience (1969) was issued under the name Limbus 3, with all three musicians playing piano, bass, guitar, cellos, violin, flute, whistle, recorder, tambourine, tablas, foray, tsikadraha, valiha and other exotic percussion instruments. They were university students who wanted to express philosophical and psychological ideas through their music. The album was a private release, and is now of course extremely rare. It has a fold-out cover with a simple drawing on the front, a picture of the group walking in a park or forest. Inside there was general information, a text about the Limbus 3-music and Francis Bacon's "New Atlantis" (1623) and another picture of the group. "New-Atlantis" was also one of the music pieces of the record, taking up side two. For Mandalas (1970) the group was expanded with the addition of Matthias Knieper (various instruments) and thus became the quartet Limbus 4. This was the second Ohr-release with a Reinhard Hippen-designed sleeve. It had the Ohr speciality - a cut-in on the front sleeve with a balloon attached. Musically this was in similar style with four new improvisations, though their first album was their most successful.

    time: 1:05'38" size: 131 mb


    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:

    Tribal rock precursor to Redbone, sought-after and included here because of the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band connection - their Liberty recordings were produced by Bob Markley. Their Heya 45 sold well in France, precipitating a further 45 there, Na-Ru-Ka, which is excellent "navajo rock" with strong guitar parts. J.J. Light was in fact Jim Stallings, the Sir Douglas Quintet bassist.

    Heya was covered in 1970 by the German group Jeronimo.

    Their third 45, produced by Jim Stallings and P.Boyde is weak pop and best avoided.

    time: 28'36" size: 57 mb

    issue: 2006


    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:

    This was a Los Angeles-based studio project involving J.J. Cale and the Tillisons, a folky couple who had migrated to LA and released one 45 as Gypsy Trips in 1965 which was subsequently covered by The Electric Prunes on their debut 45. The album, which was released on Amos "Snuf" Garrett's Viva label is notable for being Cale's first album appearance. He wrote the self-penned material on and co-produced the album. It consists mainly of covers of the 'in' sounds of the time including Eight Miles High, Psychotic Reaction, Over Under Sideways Down, Sunshine Superman, Kicks (by Paul Revere And The Raiders), Mr. Tambourine Man and Along Comes Mary.

    Roger Tillison later released a good solo LP in 1970 Roger Tillison's Album with Jesse Ed Davis.

    Cosmic Dreams:

    La Dusseldorf were the logical successor to the duo Neu, which disbanded when Michael Rother left in 1975 to pursue a successful solo career. His collaborator Klaus Dinger recorded a new album from September to December 1975 with the two percussionists that contributed to the Neu '75 album: Thomas Ginger and Hans Lampe. This "new Neu project" was named La Dusseldorf. Harald Konietzko (bass) also guested on the album, recorded with Konrad Plank in the Plank studio. The sleeve also mentioned another guest, Nikolaus von Rhein - this was none other than Klaus Ginger himself! Musically this was a return to industrial and urban electronic rock, as opposed to the almost rural atmosphere on Neu '75. It's very tempting to compare La Dusseldorf's music at this stage to Ktaftwerk's Autobahn phaze - highly electronic and monotonous as it was, and even featuring similar minimalistic and naive lyrics. The difference was La Dusseldorf's use of guitar and acoustic drums, bringing their sound slightly closer to "rock". As such, Klaus Dinger & Co. were undoubtedly inspiring many forthcoming bands of the Neue Deutsche Welle (circa 1979-1984); Rheingold, Der Plan, etc. The two tracks on side one were heralding different aspects of the city of Dusseldorf, mainly via the use of symbolistic keywords.

    To the Bone is a 1994 album by English rock group The Kinks. The album is a collection of acoustic reworkings of some of the band's earlier recordings, a popular trend in the 1990s among established acts due to MTV's Unplugged. In 1996, an expanded double CD-version with 29 tracks was released. Two tracks on the U.K. issue - "Waterloo Sunset" and "Autumn Almanac" - were omitted from the double-disc U.S. version.
