    Zakarrias ~ 1971 ~ Zakarrias
    genre: psych
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 40'55" size: 241 mb
    misc.: 2003
     
    Tapestry of Delights:
    By now, this has turned out to be the rarest Deram album. Musically it is a strange eclectic mixture of hard rock with acoustic guitar and bluesy folk with strongly romantic lyrics. The accompanying band plays tight enough, but most of the songs are a bit too common to excite. Zakarrias is at his best on the slower tracks when he doesn't try to rock out. The lyrics are above average:
    "We are like counts and kings
    presented with rings and diamonds.
    In a suit of iron we sleep
    which our dreams hang on."
    (Marcel Koopman).

    Geoff Leigh went on to play in Quiet Sun, Mouseproof, Henry Cow and Radar Favourites. Peter Robinson had played with Chris Farlowe and went on to Quatermass, Curtis Maldoon, session work and a spell with Al Stewart.

    Zabu ~ 1972 ~ My Coffin's Ready

    musearecords.com:
    ZABU, also known under the name Lucien ZABUSKI, was the first MAGMA's first singer. A part of the Theleme label, so dear to Laurent THIBAUT, "My Coffin's Ready" (1972) proves to be very different from anything we could expect, given that it is actually a French blues album. Without any pretence, this masterpiece manages to captivate the listener all along. The singer's rough and energetic voice dominates the music with great ease. We'll also notice the participation of such prestigious musicians as Christian VANDER, Francis MOZE, Teddy LASRY, Yochk'o SEFFER and Marc PERRU. As you already know, most of them are obviously part of the Zeuhl universe. Here is then a definite historic document !

    the Michael Yonkers Band ~ 1968 ~ Microminiature Love
    genre: acid psych
    country: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 48'22" size: 301 mb
     
    A cult artist the likes of  Captain Beefheartthe Fugs and the Godz, Minneapolis' Michael Yonkers has been toiling in obscurity since the late '60s. With a solid foundation of surf rock and garage, Yonkers pushes the limits of distortion with guitar and effects modifications, and a raw and blunt approach to underground rock & roll. Born in 1947, Yonkers began playing guitar in the early '60s. Raised on Link Wray and the Trashmen, he officially started his music career as the leader of Michael & the Mumbles who played proms and dances in the Twin Cities area. Constantly redefining and stretching the limits of their sound, the group eventually evolved into Michael Yonkers Band with Michael's brother Jim on drums and Tom Wallfred on bass. In 1967, Yonkers cut his Telecaster down to a plank and began the other modifications on his equipment that would solidify the band's unique approach. Soon, Minneapolis music impresario Peter Steinberg landed the band a contract with Sire Records -- not unusual for a time when major labels were combing the underground for bands like the Mothers of Invention. Microminiature Love was the group's first full-length and was intended to be released in 1968, but for reasons still unknown, the deal with Sire fell apart and the band broke up, their brilliant debut left languishing on a shelf. In 1971, Yonkers' back was broken in an on-the-job-accident at an electronics warehouse -- a twist of fate that led to years of exploratory surgery that only made matters worse, and an allergic reaction to X-ray dye that left the guitarist with a degenerative spinal cord condition. But Yonkers kept recording, and released three solo albums on his own label in 1974 -- Grimwood (recorded in 1969), Michael Lee Yonkers (recorded in 1972) and Goodby Sunball (recorded in 1973) -- as well as Borders of My Mind with Jim Woehrle. Thy Will Be Done followed in 1976 and then Yonkers was relatively unheard of for two decades. In 1997, Get Hip Records released a compilation of songs recorded at Richfield, Minnesota's Dove Studios called Free Flight: Unreleased Dove Recording Studio Cuts 1964-69 which contained two songs from Microminiature Love, "Puppeting" (which was mislabeled as "Microminiature Love") and the anti-Vietnam war song "Kill the Enemy." These stripped-down, seminal art rock tracks caught the attention of De Stijl's Clint Simonson, who spent over a year searching for Yonkers. Simonson released the virtually forgotten Minneapolis psychedelic-garage album Microminiature Love in 2002. The vinyl-only edition quickly became a record collector favorite, and in 2003 Sub Pop put out the CD of this strange, lost album complete with six bonus tracks recorded circa 1968. ~ Charles Spano, Rovi

    Tapestry of Delights:
    Back in 1969 Richard Davies met Dutch millionaire Stanley August Miesegaes (commonly known as Sam) in Munich whilst playing in a band called The Joint. He offered to sponsor Davies if he formed a new group and Davies duly put together line-up after advertising for players in a rock music paper. The new group was originally going to be named Daddy but after much correspondence between roadie Peter Viney and Richard Palmer, the band took its name from W.H. Davies' book, 'The Autobiography Of A Supertramp', published in 1910. Their first album, Supertramp, made little impact when released in 1970. It was full of lengthy and uninteresting solos and Bob Miller suffered a nervous breakdown soon afterwards.
    The band regrouped in 1971 with new members Currie and Farrell and original bassist Hodgson switched to lead guitar. Their second album Indelibly Stamped fared no better than the first and after their sponsor Sam paid off £60,000 worth of debts, all the band members quit except for Davies and Hodgson.

    the Standells ~ 1964 ~ The Standells In Person At P.J.'s
    genre: garage
    country: us
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, scans)
    time: 33'12" size: 204 mb
     
    A year or two before they really hit upon the garage rock style for which they're most known, the Standells were a popular club band in Los Angeles, grinding out covers of recent hits. In Person at PJ's is a document of their live set at the time, the ten tracks devoted mostly to well-worn R&B/rock tunes like "Money," "Louie Louie," "Bony Maronie," "Linda Lu," "So Fine," and "I'll Go Crazy," with a nod to the British Invasion in the Beatles' "You Can't Do That." If this is a disappointment, it's only in relation to the far more original work the Standells would do only shortly thereafter. If judged as a frat rock album (disregarding its having been recorded in a prominent urban club rather than a frat), it's actually considerably above the average; the group plays well and with verve. But the lack of original material and particularly distinctive approaches to the songs means it's not nearly as interesting as what they'd record later, and the sound quality is actually a bit subpar, though certainly listenable. You can hear a hint of what was to come in Dick Dodd's lead vocal on one of the less famous songs, Jimmy Reed's "Help Yourself," but largely this bears little relation to the Standells' best records. ~ Richie Unterberger

    Tapestry of Delights:
    Another fine underground band, which appeared regularly on John Peel's Top Gear, Skip Bifferty were discovered by Manager Don Arden, who secured a contract with RCA after seeing one of their early gigs at the Marquee. They had based themselves in London and secured a series of 10 Marquee gigs to help establish them. Bell and Gallagher had previously played with Chosen Few.
    They released a number of singles of which the hard rocker On Love was the first and the best. The 'A' side contained a very catchy guitar riff. The follow-up Happy Land was more flower-power orientated. Despite a degree of airplay neither entered the Charts. Their final single, Man In Black was taken from the album which featured other fine tracks notably Guru unusual for its sole drum backing, the psychedelic Time TrackInside The Secret and Clearway 51. Man In Black, incidentally, was produced by The Small Faces' Ronnie Lane and arranged by Stevie Marriott.
    Unfortunately, they failed to break through, and after conflicts with their manager they answered an ad in 'Time Out' and recorded the seven minute long I Keep Singing That Same Old Song under the name of Heavy Jelly. The track received wide recognition as a result of being featured on the Nice Enough To Eat sampler album.
    In the seventies, Bell went on to Bell and Arc, which also included Gallagher and Turnball. Gibson played with Snafu in the mid-seventies. Gallagher was in several other bands including Parrish and Gurvitz, Frampton's Camel and Loving Awareness.

    Trapeze ~ 2003 ~ Live At The Boat Club 1975
    genre: heavy
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, cover)
    time: 1:08'27" size: 437 mb
     
    For many, Trapeze truly hit their peak in the early '70s, with such releases as Medusa and You Are the Music...We're Just the Band, and more specifically, when their lineup consisted of Glenn Hughes, Mel Galley, and Dave Holland. By 1975, Hughes was long gone from the group (having split to join up with Deep Purple a couple of years earlier), but Galley and Holland soldiered on with Hughes' replacement, Pete Wright, and another guitarist, Rob Kendrick (with Galley assuming vocal duties). And it's this era and lineup that are featured on Live at the Boat Club 1975. For those who assume that the Hughes-less Trapeze was incapable of creating some on-stage excitement, this set will certainly prove you wrong. For starters, Galley has a surprisingly strong voice, and is able to -- for the most part -- match Hughes' soulful delivery on such ditties as "You Are the Music" and "Jury." But the group blows the doors off the venue with a simply explosive/set-closing rendition of "The Raid." While most fans will understandably seek out a Hughes-era live recording if they're on the hunt for a Trapeze concert disc, Live at the Boat Club 1975 is better than you'd think. ~ Greg Prato
     
    Recorded at the legendary Nottingham club for a live radio broadcast. 70 minutes, nine tracks, of high energy classic rock & riffs including material from their four mid-70s albums.
