    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    A late sixties San Francisco outfit, whose album is tull of fuzz-blues material sounding rather like a psychedelic Groundhogs. Its more psychedelic tracks included Underground River and For Suki. Only two covers are present, a bluesy version of "The Letter" and "Born Under A Bad Sign", both were chosen for their 45. The album is now a very minor collectors' item and was produced by Tom Wilson.
    Mclliwaine produced many solo albums in the seventies when she spent much of her time in Canada. Paul Album was also in Chrysalis. ~ (Vernon Joynson/Stephane Rebeschini)

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    This Maine - based group contained the Leavitt brothers who had previously led the Cobras, Ralph Mazzota from Lazy Smoke and Maris, who was the bass player for The Ones. Pedigree aside, this is a powerful and inventive psychedelic heavy rock album(!) that stands on its own as a great work. With its backwards bits and oddly-effected vocals, the album stands with one foot in the 1960s and one in the 1970s - leaning into the tracks with a heavy - handed metallic attitude. The album is recommended but has not been reissued yet, so it may be difficult to obtain. Gary Leavitt was killed in 1975, which effectively ended the band - a popular live attraction in the Northeast through 1974. Jay Leavitt still performs with his group Bluesberry Jam in the Maine area. ~ (Clark Faville)

    Scented Gardens of Mind:
    Known for their pop-rock adaptations of classical music, this dodgy outfit sold a lot of records all over the world. Their idea was to turn well-known classical pieces into up-beat pop-rock instrumentals. The result is closer to the James Last Orchestra (sharing the same awkward brass arrangements) than anything resembling progressive rock. On offer are mechanical renditions of orchestral favourites, lacking the power of rock music as well as the originally intended dynamic range and variety of instruments. This is as harmful to rock's reputation in classical music circles as vice versa. Keyboard-player Rick van der Linden's later albums are admittedly much better.

    Mary Hopkin ~ 1995 ~ Those Were The Days
    genre: pop
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, booklet scans,  size: 311 mb)
    time: 54'22"
    misc.: '68-'71 A's & B's
     
    This collection is partly related to the similarly titled 11-song LP compilation of Hopkin's work that appeared during 1972. That release was premature, a result of Apple Records' thrashing about trying to generate revenue, but time has made the need for such a collection a little more clear. Hopkin ended up leaving behind a considerable number of singles that never made it onto albums, all of which are featured here along with most of their B-sides; the latter are extremely important, because Hopkin usually preferred the B-sides, feeling they represented what she was really about as a singer far better than her A-sides. Almost all of the material is eminently listenable and much of it is extremely enjoyable. Hopkin may have regarded herself as a folksinger, but her intonation and articulation made her a very formidable pop talent as well, as revealed in her smoothly elegant version of "Que Sera Sera." Whether she was singing in Italian or English, or in a folk or a pop idiom, Hopkin brought beguiling sensitivity and emotion to her recordings, and is consistently interesting to hear for her finely nuanced diction. And just when listeners think they know what to expect from her, along comes her country-styled "Jefferson," which, with its gentle, good-natured whoop of delight from Hopkin and some careful overdubbing, sounds like a rehearsal take from the Emmylou Harris/Linda Ronstadt/Dolly Parton trio album. A few places drag, such as the overproduced 1971-vintage single "Let My Name Be Sorrow," which demands more drama than Hopkin can comfortably bring to the song, but it is balanced by the presence of "When I Am Old One Day," a previously unreleased outtake from Earth Song/Ocean Song -- which, with the three songs off of the latter album, comprise the best material on this collection -- and "Kew Gardens," a Ralph McTell song that was previously only available as the B-side of a single. The sound is state of the art circa the mid-'90s, with a lot of warmth and detail, and the notes are reasonably thorough and accompanied by a detailed release history of each song. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

    time: 45'30"

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    This band recorded in Houston although they originated from San Antonio in Texas. Musically they ranged from psychedelia to more progressive rock. Their first 45 was a strange rework of Willie Nelson's I Never Cared For You on the 'A' side. The third, particularlySunrise, marked the pinnacle of their achievements in the arena of psychedelic rock. Their album is more progressive than psychedelic but it features some fine guitar work and is recommended. Christopher Cross, who achieved considerable success as a solo artist in the early eighties, had some involvement with their LP and rumour has it that Van Wilkes played on their 45s. ~ (Vernon Joynson / Max Waller)

    time: 48'55" size: 320 mb
    misc.: 2000
     
    Tapestry of Delights:
    Evolving from student beat groups, UtopiaToast, in sixties BathGringo toured in Europe and even made a living with a club residency on the south coast of France. They were opening act on a UK tour featuring Barclay James Harvest and Caravan. Their recorded legacy is a quality album of pop-tinged progressive rock that still sounds fresh, with a lightness of touch and many distinctive twists. The song-within-a-song piece, Emma And Harry, is worthy of note, but all nine tracks are good. It is tempting to wonder if Land of Who Knows Where may have been inspired by a certain Caravan album released the same year!
    Gringo split and John Perry joined Spreadeagle but not in time to play on their only album. The Caravan connection reappeared and he joined that band in time for the Girls Who Grow Plump album. He played later with Quantum JumpCurved Air and Aviator and did a host of session and solo work. Henry Marsh sampled chart success with Sailor, and Simon Byrne worked with Brotherhood of Man among others. There you have Gringo, an overlooked band and album, worth discovering. The B-side of their single is a non-album track. ~ (Neil Murray)
