    David Crosby ~ 1971 ~ If I Could Only Remember My Name …
    genre: blues, folk, psych
    country: us
    quality: lossless (folk, cue, log, scans)
    time: 46'32" size: 324 mb
     
    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Recorded shortly after the death of his girlfriend, Christine Gail Hinton, the first solo album by David Crosby contains some decent tracks but will not appeal to everyone, and many will find it boring. It's main interest today is probably the stellar backing group: four members of the Dead (Garcia, Lesh, Hart and Kreutzmann), two from Santana (Shrieve and Rolie), four from the 'Airplane (Grace Slick, Kantner, Casady, Kaukonen), one from Quicksilver (Freiberg), plus Graham Nash, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Laura Allen.
    The music is very laid back and as one may expect, given the personnel, contains some good guitar parts. The material was penned by Crosby with some help from Young, Nash, Garcia, Lesh and Shrieve. The strangest track is an accapella version of the French traditional Orleans, Beaugency.
    The album was enginereed by Stephen Barncard, who also worked with Chet Nicholls and went on to form Oasis (the US one!). David Crosby worked throughout the seventies and eighties with Graham Nash and occasionally Steve Stills and Neil Young. He also spent various periods in jail. After some severe health problems, he is now intensively touring and recording, solo or with his two groups, CPR and the reformed CSN&Y.
    David Crosby was of course one of The Byrds. ~ (Stephane Rebeschini)

    Creepy John Thomas ~ 1968 ~ Brother Bat Bone + 1969 - Creepy John Thomas
    genre: heavy blues
    country: australia / uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 1:08'47" size: 446 mb
    misc.: 2002
     
    Tapestry of Delights:
    A little known and underrated talent. John Thomas had two hits with The Flies in Australia before coming to London to form his own band in 1969. Both albums are consistently good, strong material and raw vocals, which suit the guitar-driven musical format. There's some good guitar work on both albums. Ride A Rainbow is certainly the most commercial track on the first album but Trippin' Like A Dog And Rockin' Like A Bitch is really the magnum opus. The second album is excellent too. The opening cut Down In The Bottom sets the tone for more guitar driven hard rock from which the title track, Brother Bat Bone, is really the highlight, but dig the melodic guitar work on This Is My Body and Standin' In The Sunshine illustrates his mellower side. This is slightly the stronger of two but both are recommended.
    Unfortunately the German release of the first album wrongly states that Kiernan O'Conner (drms) and George Hart (bs) were members of the group. Both were only in the live band for a brief period.
    2nd Lp's Line-up stayed together for more than two years. John Thomas later played for Edgar Broughton in 1975 and now lives in Berlin, running a band called Johnny and The Drivers.

    Kevin Coyne & Siren ~ 1994 ~ Rabbits
    genre: rock
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 1:08'00" size: 373 mb
    misc.: compil. rec. '69-'70
     
    Tapestry of Delights:
    One of the more interesting characters of this era, Coyne entered the world on 27 January 1944 in Derby. He went to Art College there and later worked as a social therapist in a Preston mental hospital from 1965.
    In 1969 he relocated to London, working as a social worker in Camden and beginning to pursue a music career. He soon became vocalist for Siren, but when they split he quit his day job, too, concentrating on a solo career.
    Snapped up by Dandelion he put out a debut album which was full of his eccentricities and is now cherished by collectors. Much of his music was totally anti-commercial and entirely lacking in conventional song structures. In 1973 he signed to Virgin who put out a double album of his work, Marjory Razorblade.
    In 1974 he formed a support band to play dates in Britain and Europe. After it collapsed he put together an enlarged band in January 1975 comprised of Tim Penn (keyb'ds), Gordon Smith (slide gtr), Andy Summers (gtr), Steve Thompson (bs) and Peter Woolf (drms). The resulting album, Matching Hands And Feet, was not one of his best though. In April 1975 Penn and Smith went on their way and the slimmed down band embarked on a long UK tour and recorded a further album, HeartburnIn Living Black And White, a live album, included Zoot Money and Andy Summers in the line-up. It also featured extended versions of two of his finest works, House On The Hill and Marjory Razorblade. However, by April 1976 it had become apparent that Coyne, whose music was always an acquired taste, couldn't afford to keep a band on the road and he was forced back to a solo format. He continued to record as a cult figure.

    time: 45'37" size: 244 mb
     
    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    An heavy rock outfit notable for the screaming female vocals of Jinx Dawson. They released at least three albums. Produced by Bill Traut (AortaShadows of Knight...), their first one attempted to mix psych rock with Black Mass "liturgy" for generally enjoyable results and contained ten tracks: Black SabbathDignitaries Of HellPact With LuciferFor Unlawful Carnal Knowledge... The album came with a nice gatefold cover with lyrics and several pictures of the "ceremony".
    Their subsequent releases were in the same style. ~ (Stephane Rebeschini)
