    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    From Cleveland, Ohio, a good psyche hard rock outfit which did achieve some modest commercial success. Their first album is excellent, with surprising covers of Last Train To Clarksville, Morning Dew and You Don't Love Me, plus a good original penned by William "Bill" Constable. The Second Damnation is also interesting, with Back To The River, Money Tree and In The Morning. There's already a Southern rock feel in some songs.
    After three albums, they renamed themselves Glory and released an LP on Avalanche in 1973.
    Eric Stevens, who later worked with Brownsville Station, produced their albums and Bill Schwark had previously played with The Alarm Clocks.

    Biography:
    Denny Laine (born Brian Frederick Arthur Hines, 29 October 1944, Tyseley, Birmingham) is an English songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, best known for his roles as former guitarist and lead singer of The Moody Blues and, later, co-founder (with Paul McCartney) of Wings.
    Denny Laine is of Romani descent, was educated at Yardley Grammar School in Birmingham, and took up the guitar as a boy under the influence of jazz legend Django Reinhardt; he had his first solo performance as a musician at the age of twelve and began his career as a professional musician fronting Denny & The Diplomats, which also included future The Move and Electric Light Orchestra drummer Bev Bevan.
    In 1964, Laine left The Diplomats to join Mike Pinder in The Moody Blues and sang their first big hit, "Go Now"; other early highlights included "From The Bottom Of My Heart", "Can't Nobody Love You" and the harmonica-ripping "Bye Bye Bird". However, Denny's tenure with the MB's was short-lived and, after a number of comparative failures, Laine quit the band in late 1966(the last record issued by The Moody Blues that featured Laine was "Life's Not Life"/"He Can Win" in 1967, but "Boulevard De La Madelaine" looked ahead to the fancier sounds that the MB's would later become famous for).
    After leaving The Moody Blues, he formed The Electric String Band, which featured Denny (guitar, vocals), Trevor Burton (guitar, another former member of The Move) and Viv Prince (drums), also featuring electrified strings in a format not dissimilar to what Electric Light Orchestra would later attempt. They made two singles, "Say You Don't Mind / Ask The People" (Apr 1967, Deram) and "Too Much In Love / Catherine's Wheel" (Jan 1968, Deram); and, in June 1967, they shared a bill with The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Procol Harum at the Saville Theatre in London. However, national attention was not to be, and the pioneering Electric String Band broke up. (There was apparently a third single recorded called "Why Did You Come?". Why it never released is unknown, but there has been rumors that the finished track - and probably the B side as well - was sent by post to Decca and was lost.) Laine and Burton then went on to the band Balls from 1969 until the band's breakup in 1971, with both also taking time to play in Ginger Baker's Air Force in 1970. (Only one single was issued by Balls; "Fight For My Country" / "Janie, Slow Down" on UK Wizard Records. Strangely, the top side was re-edited and reissued on UK Wizard and issued in the US on Epic under the name of Trevor Burton, which was odd since Laine and Burton shared lead vocals on the B side. The single was reissued again as B.L.W. as "Live In The Mountains" for a small Pye distributed label. There was supposed to have been a Balls album recorded, but it has never seen the light of day). Laine's 1967 song "Say You Don't Mind" was a hit when recorded in 1972 by ex-Zombie, Colin Blunstone.
    In 1971, Denny joined Paul McCartney to found the group known as Wings, and would stay with them for a full ten years until they officially disbanded in 1981; Denny provided lead & rhythm guitars, backing vocals, keyboards, bass, writing and co-writing skills, as well as being a solid solo performer. Together with Paul and his wife, the late Linda, they formed the nucleus of the band, being called that "strange, 3-winged beast". It was with Wings that Denny enjoyed the biggest commercial and critical successes of his career, including co-writing the smash hit "Mull of Kintyre".
    In January 1980, McCartney was arrested upon arrival for possession of marijuana at an airport for a tour in Japan. The tour was cancelled and Wings unofficially had their wings clipped; they recorded through the year on new tracks as well as old tracks still in the vaults, but a press release by Paul in early 1981 officially announced that Wings had come in for a landing. The new tracks ended up on Paul's next two solo albums, and Laine's relationship with McCartney soured(speculation also has it that financial matters were close to the heart of this dissolution, similar to the McCartney/Jackson partnership).
    The title track of Denny's first solo album after Wings, called "Japanese Tears", appeared to be a visible attack on McCartney much like John Lennon's "How Do You Sleep?" in 1971; however, closer inspection to the lyrics shows that it more likely tells the tongue-in-cheek story of a japanese fan's disappointment after Wings' tour got cancelled(or possibly even tears of excitement at Wings' arrival in Japan in the first place).
    Denny filed for bankruptcy in the mid-80's after selling his lucrative co-publishing rights to "Mull of Kintyre" to co-author McCartney. However, he has continued to record music at a prolific rate and has appeared at Beatles conventions and on tributes to both The Beatles and Wings. He is currently working on an autobiography.
    He was briefly married to Jo Jo Laine (born 13 July 1953 — died 29 October 2006), with whom he had a son Laine, and a daughter, Heidi.

    oe: superb sympho prog *****+

    The Spanish Progressive Rock Encyclopedia:
    Fans of symphonic progressive with flip their tails over this one! THE best rock adaptation of classical music EVER, and that is NO exaggeration! It's a rock adaptation of Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" with some original music added to make the concept flow. The original music consists of electronic music, vocal music and the like, but based on Vivaldi's original themes and motives. The mixture of multiple keyboards (mellotrons, synths, acoustic and electric pianos), powerful vocals, some rock, some choral and some operatic and manic Akkermanesque guitar make for varied and interesting listening. The arrangements of the string quartet pieces for rock band work beautifully, especially on the adaptations of the "Spring" and "Winter" sections, which work surprisingly well as rock music. They even include a short "Christmas carol" in one track! Originally a 70-plus- minute double album, issued on a single CD. My highest recommendations go out to this one! Mike Ohman.

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    From Levittown, Long Island, New York. This outfit's album is a superb and very under-rated progressive album with long organ tracks, fuzz, pleasant piano interludes and some effective female vocals in places. The opening cut, All Of Them Witches, is one of those long extended, elaborate tracks that characterised the progressive era, but the whole of side one in particular is excellent.

    Nucleus ~ 1970 ~ Elastic Rock + 1971 ~ Well Talk About It Latergenre: jazz

    time: 41`23"+45'38" size: 511 mb
    issue: 1994

    Tapestry of Delights:
    Nucleus first attracted attention by winning first prize at the Montreux International Festival in 1970 for their improvised and integrated music which was an amalgam of jazz and rock. They were originally formed in 1969 by trumpeter Ian Carr. He was joined by ex-Battered Ornaments guitarist Chris Spedding and Karl Jenkins and John Marshall (who both went on to Soft Machine) on the first three albums. Elastic Rock was their most successful, actually climbing to No 46 in the Album Charts. Their third album, Solar Plexus, was spacier than the two which preceded it and is particularly recommended. In 1972 Jenkins and Marshall both departed to join Soft Machine.
    Belladonna was essentially an Ian Carr solo album, although he did enlist the services of guitarist Allan Holdsworth. Produced by Jon Hiseman (of Colosseum fame) it is Carr's most sought-after work for Vertigo. Of the later albums Snakes Hips Etcetera is well regarded. They eventually split up in the early eighties.
    Nucleus are still considered to be one of Britain's top jazz-rock bands.

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    This band were students at University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Their album, which was recorded in New York in December 1966, is definitely worth investigating and is a minor collectable. Its very Anglophile sound garnered it a U.K. release, although the band had split by April 1967.
    Bassist Jim Opton told U-Spaces:- "We were a band that was making a pretty good living playing fraternity parties around the campus, and a few cellar clubs in Chapel Hill. My fraternity, Phi Mu Alpha, was sponsoring a charity concert for our scholarship fund, and we decided to go for broke that year and book a big name. We contacted William Morris Agency in New York, and booked Chad and Jeremy. We needed an opening act, so I booked my own band... got us real cheap. The deal was that Rob Heller, who was with the Morris Agency would come and hear us play. He signed us immedately after the concert. A week later he hooked us up with Elliot Mazur, who became our producer. Elliott also worked as a song peddler for E.B. Marks Music, who published the music. We got a recording contract with Decca, I don't know how, but Rob put that deal together with Elliott, and the next thing I know, we are in the studio with all kinds of famous people that had us in awe for the first 35 seconds or so. I do know that somebody thought we were kind of special, because the studio was absolutely closed to visitors while we were there, and we were not allowed to take home raw tape to play for anyone. We did a lot of things that were pretty advanced for our time. Listen carefully to Morning Dew for example. The strange vocal effects were done by feeding the vocals through a Leslie Tone Cabinet from a Hammond B3. Also, the bass lead is the first bass feedback lead I think I can remember in a rock song. I blew up the amp doing it!! Cost me $750 (a LOT of money I didn't have in 1966)!! But, it was a hell of a lick. The album was essentially recorded by five of us: Randy, Bill, Joe, Cam and me. Phil had departed for law school. I believe he is alive and well, and practicing law in Charlotte, N.C."
    "Actually, there is one little piece or two of rock and roll history that goes with that album. It was the first ever recorded using the very new, and relatively unknown, Dolby NR System. It took up a good size room at the time. The engineer for the album, Fred Cretera, was also the engineer for Simon and Garfunkel."
    Joe Mendyk had earlier played in Tri-Power, The Better Days and The Warlocks (with an excellent 45 on Decca). The 'A' side of their first 45, excellent harmony pop-punk ~

    Tapestry of Delights:
    The Nashville Teens were formed in Weybridge, Surrey in 1962. The founding members Arthur Sharp and Ramon Phillips had been lead singers in two rival groups which had joined forces in 1962. The group bit their teeth in the Hamburg clubs during 1963-64. This era saw a few personnel changes with Dunsford and Groom being replaced by John Allen, a guitarist from Woking, and drummer Pete Lace, who was in turn replaced by Barry Jenkins. They also added a third vocalist, Terry Crow, for a while although he decided to remain in Germany when their residency at the Star Club ended. During their time in Germany they backed Jerry Lee Lewis on a live album (Live At The Star Club, Hamburg (Philips BL 7646) 1965.
    Returning to the UK in 1964, they were managed by Don Arden and Mickie Most became their producer after seeing them back Chuck Berry, who was over here on tour. Most was vocalist with The Minutemen at the time. For their debut 45, they chose a barnstorming R&B rendition of North Carolinan John D. Loudermilk's Tobacco Road. The song, which was notable for its strident piano, pulsating beat and twin vocals, climbed to No 6 here and No 14 in the US. In fact it was a smash hit in several other countries too. Sharp had come across the song whilst working in a record shop but this proved the start of a close relationship between the group and composer.

    This Hollywood-based quintet were a popular attraction around LA's bars and clubs for some years. Their album attracts some interest among collectors of psychedelia. Offbeat hippie-psych - 'canyon music' might be an apt description recalling the post 'flower power' scene exhorted by Kim Fowley as the next 'in-thing'. Indeed Kim Fowley produced the album. Unfortunately it didn't catch on. The album came in a wonderfully colourful cover.

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Tacoma, Washington was their home town and they were one of the finest punk bands to come from the Northwest in this era. The Witch was an enormous hit in the Pacific Northwest, indeed The Sonics were immensely popular there. Their follow-up Psycho was also a local hit. Most of their material was original and written by Gerry Roslie, although they also did cover versions of tracks like I'm A Man. Arguably they were left behind in the San Francisco-based rock renaissance of 1967.
    Their third album, which was produced by Jerry Dennon, was called Introducing because it was their first on a major label. This album was later re-released in the late seventies under the title The Sonics' Original Northwest Punk. The last 45 recorded by the original line-up was Any Way The Wind Blows. After this members departed to go to college or join other bands - with Rob Lind being the last original to leave in 1968.
    Jim Brady came in on lead vocals in 1967, from The Mercy Boys and by 1968 was leading the band. From Love-itis onwards they perfected a new sound adding strings and horns but it didn't go down with their fans and they slowly faded out of the limelight.
    Jerry Roslie, reformed the band in 1979 with a new line-up to record (6) for Bomp.
    Doug Heath and Ron Foos formed The City Zu and Danny Hoeerer went on to play for Tower Of Power. Rob Lind now lives in LA where he is involved in the film industry. Gerry Roslie still records and writes songs today.

    oe: this is our content or no, how you defined this  nicely supertrampish band? Please comment need this strange band here or no.

    New Zealand's Split Enz began their recording career in pleasantly uncommercial fashion, writing gently eccentric tunes that echoed the softer side of Foxtrot-era Genesis. A compilation of demos, Mushroom's The Beginning of the Enz chronicles those earliest days and finds Tim Finn's bittersweet singing style starting to work its magic.
    For Mental Notes--their first proper album--the Enz took shape as a sprawling seven-piece, including spoons player Noel Crombie. They had grown overtly weird and flamboyant, with many tunes resembling little, distorted symphonies. The effects don't always work, simply because flakiness carried past a certain point can't be taken seriously on any level. The Genesis parallel holds here as well.

    By the time Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera produced the second Mental Notes, the Enz were ready for the world beyond. Bizarre carnival costumes and distorted upsweep hairdos served as colorful attention-grabbers. Tim Finn's wistful voice adds a sweet patina to disoriented and lyrically offbeat outings like "Stranger Than Fiction" and the morbid "The Woman Who Loves You."

    Tapestry of Delights:
    A progressive Anglo-American rock combo, who are probably best known for their track Living In Sin by virtue of its inclusion on CBS's popular 1970 budget-priced double compilation, Fill Your Head With Rock. This pleasant, melodic track was taken from their debut album and is arguably their finest moment. The album is well worth seeking out, though. It contains Tell Me, a mellow song with a beautiful melody; Mazsha, a fast organ-dominated instrumental with a long sax solo; Country Aire, an instrumental folk piece with flute and harpsichord; All Alone, a slow, melodic song about loneliness with pleasant sax and a long organ solo; the mellow mid-tempo Night Time with lots of flute and jazzy piano improvisations and Highway, a fast R&B influenced progressive piece with long sax and organ solos.
    By the time of Skintight in 1973 they were playing more commercial, mainstream rock with lots of orchestration and brass arrangements. Side A is disappointing but there are three decent tracks on Side B:- Instermental, a soul/funk orientated instrumental; The Heep Turns Human, which brings to mind The Who in the Who's Next period and the bluesy hard-rocker Maverick Woman Blues, which featured strong vocals and slide guitar. The album was produced by American Don Nix and remixed at Ardent Studios, Memphis.
    Nick Graham was also in The End, Atomic Rooster and Tucky Buzzard. It's unconfirmed whether drummer Tony Knight was he of the Chessmen fame

    ItalianProg:
    A trio formed in Florence in the early 70's by keyboardist Vincenzo Coccimiglio along with bass player Agostino "Tino" Nobile, that had previously played in Noi Tre, a legendary band that also included guitarists Franco Falsini of Sensations' Fix and Paolo Tofani that was in Area and later known as Electric Frankenstein.
    After trying various drummers, they found a suitable one in Giorgio Sorano and Triade was born.
    Signed to the Derby label, the group only released an album and a single in 1973, and had a good live activity supporting the likes of Banco del Mutuo Soccorso and Premiata Forneria Marconi and even playing some dates on their own (like a couple of memorable concerts at Pierlombardo in Milan).
    1998: La storia di Sabazio includes a totally instrumental first side with strong classical influences (much in the ELP direction) and a three-track second side with vocal parts, the result is a good album but a bit disjointed and not completely representative of the genre.
    The album was the result of the different tastes of the two composers, first side being almost completely composed by Coccimiglio, while the second side (that's sometimes compared with Le Orme) was more song-oriented and composed by Nobile.
    Two tracks from this vocal second side, Caro fratello and 1998, with very good acoustic guitar playing, were also released on single.
    The group disbanded not long after the album release, due to some internal friction and little interest by their management.

    Tapestry of Delights:
    Harvey and Gulland (who formed the band) were both former students of the Royal College of Music. Indeed, Harvey was a first-class recorder virtuoso. Their musical roots were very much in medieval folk but after their first album, which achieved some minor Chart success, they experimented more with long instrumentals. Side two of Midnight Mushrooms consisted of one track commissioned by Peter Hall for a National Theatre production of 'The Tempest'. They went on to play film Soundtracks for 'Pope Joan' and 'Brother Sun, Sister Moon' and arranged the title theme for 'Glastonbury Fayre'. In 1975, Harvey recorded a solo album of recorder music,Divisions On A Ground (Transatlantic TRA 292). In 1975, when Graeme Taylor left, the group expanded from a quartet to a sextet. Baird had previously played with Contraband. If mid-seventies progressive/techno-rock is your scene the group may be for you

    Touch ~ 1969 ~ Street Suitegenre: psych blues

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    A local St. Louis, Missouri band. Only 100 copies of their album were pressed and the above two non-LP 45s were often given away free with it. We're talking an ultra rarity of the highest order here. There are a couple of throwaway country tracks (Happy Face and Got To Keep Travelling On) and the finale, Gettin' Off, is marred by a tedious drum solo but the rest is for the most part mindblowing psychedelia. The best of these are Catfish, with some bluesy psychedelic guitar work, and two social commentary songs, Get A Gun and Let's Keep The Children On The Streets, a song about the riots of the sixties.
    Ray Schulte had earlier played in Bob Kuban and The In Men in 1962, before helping to form The Guise and, with his brother Jerry, an act called The Sheratons. Tiring of the pop and R&B scene, Touch were formed in mid-67, to create a more powerful fusion of psychedelic blues, and they quickly picked up support slots for acts such as Steppenwolf, Cream and Iron Butterfly, also playing at a Free festival with Big Brother & The Holding Co. and The Allman Bros in '68.
    Shortly after their album was recorded, Paulette headed west to join a commune, and Ovid quit. A new line-up recorded two further 45s, which feature some good fuzzy guitar work and in particular their version of Light My Fire, which is slower and fuzzier than The Doors', comes off well.
    One final session in 1970, with Royal on electric harpsichord and lead vocals and David Surkamp (later of Pavlov's Dog) on rhythm guitar, resulted in three songs, that have recently been included on the Gear Fab reissue. In particular The Magic Inside You is noteworthy for some particularly fine lyrics, echoing the changing times. Incongruously, the band then landed the job as back up band for Tony Orlando & Dawn, who were riding high on a wave of commercial success from hits such as Tie A Yellow Ribbon.
    Today, Royal and Ray Schulte are still performing in the St. Louis area as The Essence. ~

    Ten Years After - 1996 - I'm Going Homegenre: blues

    quality : lossless (ape, cue, log, scans)
    time: 1:18'14"
    size: 454 mb
    issue: compilation

    Tapestry Of Delights:
    The antecedents of this band were a mid-sixties band, The Jaybirds, who backed The Ivy League for a while. Alvin Lee formed the Nottingham-based rock'n'roll/R&B outfit in the early sixties with Leo Lyons and drummer Dave Quickmire. When Quickmire left in the Summer of 1965 Ric Lee came in as a replacement. The band became a popular live attraction in the Midlands and also, like so many of their contemporaries, spent time in Hamburg. In 1966 manager/agent Chris White took them on and they supported The Bonzo Dog Band at The Marquee as The Blues Yard for one gig before becoming Ten Years After. They soon became closely identified with the late sixties blues boom largely due to Alvin Lee's lightning guitar work.
    They signed to Decca in October 1967 who put out their recordings on their Deram subsidiary. Their debut album didn't chart but the live follow-up, Undead, peaked at No 6 in the UK (and 61 in the US). 1969 was the year they really made the big time. Their next album, Stonedhenge, made the UK Top Ten and on 3 July they became the first and only rock band to play the Newport Jazz Festival at Rhode Island in the USA. However it was their appearance at Woodstock in August of that year which transformed them into overnight stars, after Lee's 11-minute guitar extravaganza on I'm Going Home was filmed for the movie.
    Cricklewood Green was their most successful album in the UK. It spent 27 weeks in the Charts, peaking at No 4. It also spawned Love Like A Man, their only UK Chart entry, which had the studio album cut on one side and a long live version which played at 33 rpm on the flip.

    Tea & Symphony ~ 1969 ~ An Asylum For The Musically Insane

    genre: psych
    country: uk
    quality : lossless (flac, cue, log, booklet scans)
    time: 40'14" size: 250 mb
    issue: 1995

    Tapestry of Delights:
    A progressive outfit from Birmingham who played some of the most esoteric and experimental music released on the Harvest label. They had some similarities with Principal Edwards Magic Theatre insofar as their act was a sort of travelling theatre incorporating music, drama and mime. They followed the above 45 with an album of interesting material which utilised a diverse range of instruments and some attractive vocal harmonies. They were assisted on this effort by members of Bakerloo and Locomotive. This is a pandemonium of wilful, oblique and obscure tunes, all filled with a manic musical magic that will either appall or take you by storm. Improbable instrumental combinations and unexpected barbed-wire dissonances are treated with excellent musical craftmanship. There is no sloppiness like Dr. Strangely Strange, nor any tendency to get mystical like The Incredible String Band. Instead the madness is musically and lyrically defined, which makes this album obligatory to anyone into this kind of style. A title like Maybe My Mind (With Egg) speaks for itself.
    The follow-up, Jo Saga, was every bit as adventurous as their debut. The side-long title cut was an interesting attempt to relate the problems of a young Caribbean jazz musician living in Birmingham, but it pales in the company of the short tracks on the other side. These are more in the vein of the first album, but even better - ranking as among the best British acid-folk cuts. Sadly it was a bit too esoteric for wide public consumption and only sold a few hundred copies. It is now one of the label's rarest and most sought-after items. Both albums are recommended. The group split not long after its release but vocalist James Langston later resurfaced in the short-lived heavy rock outfit Mean Street Dealer in 1979.

    Gibraltar:
    One may occasionally bemoan the lot of the prog consumer, whose never-ending search for great music can quickly separate a fellow from his money, and often consists of wading through the extremes of industrial racket, ambient ooze, 3rd-rate rock bands and everything in between in order to discover those rare gems. Advent is one of the gems. For no other reason than their name they will draw comparisons to Gentle Giant. There are similarities especially in some of the vocal arrangements and of course, their excellent Gentle Giant tribute piece, "BITB". In most cases however, the similarity is merely that both groups feature complex and finely crafted compositions. These musicians understand the kinds of influences that helped to generate the progressive movement in the first place, so they don't come across as merely aping some of the characteristics of the seventies bands, rather they draw from the same well of inspiration. Rock & Roll, early liturgical polyphony, 20th century rhythm and harmony, and even a little Henry Mancini figure into a mix of influences that swirl under slight gothic overtones. The Ptak brothers, Mark & Henry, handle most of the composing, keyboards, and vocals. In particular, Henry Ptak's compositions and arrangements are featured and he proves to be an outstanding and highly imaginative musician, obviously trained in the art of thematic development; you won't find unrelated ideas haphazardly strung together here. Also in the group is multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Allan Benjamin, who contributes guitars, bass, stick, violin, backing vocals, and some fine compositional ideas of his own. The music on this disc is busy, tight, detailed and squeaky clean; everything in its place. So if your preference is the grungy, repetitive, heavier side of prog, look elsewhere. The band is aware that they will get some flak for the "demo" sound quality, though the sound is acceptable and often quite good. The use of the hated drum machine may draw critical fire as well, but this music is a rare case of strong ideas and performances transcending whatever technical limitations may have been imposed. One of America's finest unknown music ensembles. -- Ken A. Watson (Gibraltar Newsletter Vol. 7 #21, Aug. 1997)

    Dreams Fantasies & Nightmares:
    Another Montreal, Quebec-based band and Allen and Armstrong had both been born there in 1946. Bator was Hungarian, and McCall and Elger were both born in the U.K. - hence the name. Some of the album is rather lightweight but there's some pleasant harmony pop (Only A Dream and Corduroy Coat) and a few tracks (The World Would Understand and Don't Run Away) have a more psychedelic edge.

    From LetItRock :
    Yugoslavia, the most open of all the communist countries, saw many classic albums by Anglo rockers released so it's a little wonder that its scene thrived with bands capable of rivalry if allowed to go West. POP MASINA, a powerful vehicle, played progressive-tinged blues rock of a GUN kind that swoops on you from the blistering bass and guitar work of "Na Drumu Za Haos", melodic priority given to instruments rather than voice, and it's just a teaser as the song ends all too soon for "Pesma Srecne Noci" to come in. A thin slice of organ elegantly underlines jaunty vocals contrasting with dramatic feel the trio renders skilfully - live, this could expand onto CREAM territory.
    Track sequencing is important here and, after the rumble, quiet "Mir" with "Planet Caravan"-like solo comes very fittingly to be followed by "Kiselina" sporting jazzy groove and eerie electric piano and guitar improvisation. "Kiselina" meaning "Acid" eats into you, indeed - more so in "Trazim Put", a raga color sprayed onto rock'n'roll canvas in the vein of BLIND FAITH when guitar solo is a main attraction but it can soften, and "Povratak Zvezdama" proves an arresting instrumental wail. "Svemirska Prica" in its early SABBATH turn signals return to the album beginning (a single version added was recorded a month later and appears a bit more interesting) yet acoustically-dominated "Slika Iz Proslih Dana" adorned with flute, though exqusite, lacks the edge so, to round the opus, here's a short shuffle of "Jark".
    Few bonus tracks, recorded before and after "Kiselina" serve for catching the MASINA in motion - what a pity, it went off the rails.

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Originally from Sauk City, Wisconsin, this band was based in Detroit . The Capitol LP is notable for the side-long psychedelic rework of John Coltrane's India. It was produced by John Rhys and recorded at Ter Shirma Studios, Detroit. All the tracks on side one were group compositions. The album also crept into the U.S. Album Charts peaking at No 197.

    'Broken Barricades' may be Procol Harum's greatest album. It features lots of great guitar work from Robin Trower, and unlike their previos effort, 'Home,' the lyrics are not as downer. 'Broken Barricades' is a classic album, and a true must-have album.

    Armed with one of the most distinctive voices in popular music--a gravely, smoke-scratched rasp that crosses Joe Cocker and Louis Armstrong at the end of a particularly bad bender--Tom Waits has spent the past two decades writing and performing some of the most fascinating and creatively stimulating music around. Bringing acute intelligence to a seemingly casual (and dissolute) sensibility, Waits' lyrics read as if they were written in some eerie collaboration with the likes of (depending on the LP) Mickey Spillane, Charles Bukowski or Captain Beefheart.
    Waits' career generically divides into two periods: the melodic, barroom jazz-poet sound of his Asylum years (1973-'80), and the harmonic dissonance of his Island releases, beginning in 1983. But within such parameters, Waits has repeatedly changed direction and kept things interesting.

    The debut, Closing Time, shows the young Californian at his least confident and most vulnerable, searching for a sound but having his work whitewashed by Jerry Yester's formulaic production. While his artistry and originality are evident in such emotive tracks as "I Hope That I Don't Fall in Love with You" and "Martha," the album is polluted by attempts to shoehorn Waits into a bland singer/songwriter mold. Overburdened by acoustic guitars and occasional backing singers, the songs don't focus enough on Tom's expressive lyrics or vocal talents.

    Tapestry of Delights:
    A short-lived progressive/hard-rock outfit. The album is now quite sought-after. Except When My Momma's Not At Home, which is essentially a mainstream rock 'n' rollin' piece with a brass arrangement, the remaining tracks, Sonata In Z, Have I Left The Gas On?, A Skeleton In Armour and Talk To The Man In The Sky are superb, especially the first two. Sophisticated compositions with astonishing and strong female vocals, superb manic guitar leads, powerful drumming, electric piano, flute and harmonica solos make this recommended listening. (CA).

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    With his blatant reverence for Buddy Holly, fellow Texan Bobby Fuller (born October 22nd, 1942) was a bit of an anomaly in the mid-sixties. With his Stratocaster guitar and brash, full sound, at his best Fuller sounded like Holly might have had he survived into the sixties. Cracking the Top 30 in 1966 with a cover of Holly's Love's Made A Fool Of You, and then the Top Ten with I Fought The Law (written by one-time Cricket Sonny Curtis and featuring future Moby Grape guitarist Jerry Miller), Fuller had just become a star when he died in mysterious circumstances in a parked car in Hollywood (the police thought it was a suicide, just about everyone who knew him disagreed). Fuller's relatively short period of national stardom actually crowned a good half-dozen years of recording, during which he released many outstanding tracks. After a few local singles in his hometown of El Paso in the early sixties, he moved to California with his combo in 1964, and briefly had aspirations of playing surf music before hooking up with producer Bob Keene. In the short time he recorded for Mustang in 1965 and 1966, he waxed quite a few fine tracks (most self-penned) besides his hits, including Let Her Dance, Another Sad And Lonely Night, My True Love, Never To Be Forgotten, Fool Of Love, and The Magic Touch. Rocking, tuneful and infectiously joyous, they showed Fuller to be a worthy inheritor of early rock 'n' roll and rockabilly traditions without sounding self-consciously revivalist. While it's hard to imagine Fuller maintaining his success in the era of psychedelia, he no doubt would have gone on to produce interesting work.
    A talented and prolific songwriter and a studio wiz who drew from Eddie Cochran and (though only slightly) the full guitar sound of the British Invasion as well as Buddy Holly, he recorded a great deal of unreleased studio and live material that was issued in the 1980s, when the depth of his loss began to be appreciated.
    His brother Randy later joined Blue Mountain Eagle and Dewey Martin's Medecine Show.

    the Tapestry of Delights:
    McCusker put this techno-rock outfit together in Belfast in the early seventies although they later relocated to London. They were a popular band in the club/college circuit but never broke into the big league. Musically they were similar to Yes and Genesis, classically inclined progressive pop/rock.
    All titles on their first album were composed by McCusker and arranged by McCusker and Houston. It was produced by Denis Taylor. Farrelly was responsible for the beautiful cover painting. All the tracks on the album are good examples of classically-tinged progressive rock, with good string arrangements and often melodramatic keyboards.
    Farrelly did the cover artwork for their Seven Secrets album too. This was similar in style, although some tracks had a hint of medieval-influenced instrumentation such as the opener, Faced With Shekinah, which was penned by Houston. There are more fine McCusker songs, too, notably White Eyes. Elizabeth is a predominantly instrumental number with some beautiful piano pieces, penned by Houston, though the final track, The Seventh Secret was a throwaway number. Houston left after this album with John Mason coming in as a replacement.
    Produced by Ian McDonald, Modern Masquerades is a little less classically-influenced than their earlier efforts. McCusker's Masquerading With Dawn and Mystery Might are excellent tracks with some at times captivating instrumentation. John Mason contributed two tracks, too - the sad Gormenghast and the finale, Sheba's Song.

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    A Boston group whose sole album, recorded at CBS Studios in New York, is excellent - full of the acid imagery which typified the Bosstown sound in 1968. Almost every track is of interest. For example Land Of Diana has a compelling organ intro, Visions Of My Own some fine woodwind instrumentation and Inside People unusual fuzztone vocals and pleasing keyboards.
    In the mid-'70s, Bob Margolin became a member of Muddy Waters' band and he later played with the Johnny Winter Group. He is still touring and recording Chicago Blues albums. Nick Carstoiu too remains active in the music scene.
    In 1978, Mike Spiros released, as "Mic Spiros and the ITMB (Incredible Two Man Band)", a rare album of atmospheric prog rock based on keyboards and synthesizers. ~

    Forced Exposure:
    This is the first and second album by young bohemian Americans Fingletoad, Strange & Siho. Their self-titled first album was recorded in 1969 in Chicago as Fingletoad & Strange, and very few acetates were pressed. The follow-up Mazzola was recorded in 1970, and perhaps less than 100 records were pressed. This double CD includes all original songs from both albums, taking the listener on a psychedelic trip merging imaginary landscapes and dreamy folk with teenage angst. Clearly influenced by the top musicians of the time, The Beatles, Neil Young and Jimi Hendrix, they undoubtedly manage to create a sound all their own ranging from beautiful lyrical ballads with harmony vocals to over-the-top fuzz and feedback frenzy. All professionally executed while still retaining a garage atmosphere and production, creating the perfect mix.

    ItalianProg:
    Little is known about this band from Bari, except the name of three of their five members that three years later reappeared in jazz-rock band Baricentro.
    Diario di viaggio della Festa Mobile is a fantasy concept album, with large space given to keyboards and vocals a bit too low compared to the musical background. The album has its good moments though not one of the best in the symphonic prog style. Some jazz influences are evident.
    Brothers Boccuzzi and bassist Napolitano formed Il Baricentro with two albums in 1976 and 1978 on EMI; Giovanni Boccuzzi has had an intense activity as music composer, teacher, writer until now.

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    A local Massachusetts rural rock outfit, their first album is now catching on with collectors. The first 45 features two album cuts, but the second 45 tracks are non-album.
    They apparently had a long local career as they recorded a rare second album in 1975, which is reputedly more polished than the first one.

It was masterminded by producer Derek Lawrence. It's basically R&B played in a hard rock style. It's mostly comprised of cover versions, including Creation's Makin' Time, and is notable for Earl Jordan's strong vocals.

    time: 1:27'07" size: 486 mb
    issue: 1995

    Tapestry of Delights:
    A heavy progressive outfit whose recordings all attract interest from collectors. Basically we're talking progressive symphonic rock here with a lush mellotron sound. The first album, which has been reissued on Beat Goes On with the original artwork, begins with a pretentious Introduction, which gives way to Heaven, an acoustic guitar and mellotron number followed by the heavier Hell, which is full of distorted vocals, unnerving keyboards and phased percussion. Side two kicks off with the more laid back Fugue In 'D' Minor, which features some pleasant guitar and harpsichord work. This is followed by the lengthy The Dream with frantic vocals, swirling keyboards and some thumping drum work.
    Their second album came on the budget-priced Philips International label. It included the majestic Blood Red Sun, but the band folded soon after its release.
    Vocalist Paul Davis later guested on the Jesus Christ Superstar album ("Peter") and recorded a solo album as Sandy Davis. Cowderoy later went on to work for Stiff Records.

    "Left and to the Back":
    Goliath were one of several prog-folk acts to emerge almost exactly at the same time as the sixties faded, and whilst as a genre it didn't really have any big-hitting names like Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin, it nonetheless ploughed its own particular furrow for a rather long period of time. Unlike many of their rivals (or perhaps we should say "fellow travellers") however, Goliath had a distinct blues influences to their work as well, and were probably one of the only acts of the era to combine raunchy vocals- courtesy of lead singer Linda Rothwell - with puffing flutes. As the various cultures clash and compete for your ear's attention across the grooves, it should be a tremendous mess, but amazingly it all hangs together very well.
