    Quiet Sun ~ 1975 ~ Mainstreamgenre: prog, jazz
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers, 233 mb)
    time: 39'18"

    Tapestry of Delights:
    This band's roots lie in a series of Soft Machine-influenced groups from Dulwich College. They formed in 1970 but later disbanded in February 1972 having found it hard to get gigs or a recording contract (Warner Brothers had financed some demos but nothing had come of them). In February 1972 Phil Manzanera joined Roxy Music, MacCormick went off to Matching Mole and then Gong and Hayward joined Mal Dean's Amazing Band (who didn't make it onto vinyl), High Tide (in their final months) and Gong.
    The album was recorded when Manzanera reformed the group in December 1974 on the strength of his success with Roxy Music. Mostly instrumental, it's essentially a jazz-rock orientated progressive album, which is unusual in both rock or jazz-rock terms. Its finer moments include Sol Caliente, which has a slightly Spanish feel and very good fuzz guitar leads by Phil Manzanera, and Bargain Classics, a very different dreamy number with floating keyboards.
    MacCormick and Manzanera went on to play together as members of 801 (1976-77).

    Quatermass ~ 1970 ~ Quatermassgenre: heavy prog
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers, 348 mb)
    time: 1:01'00"

    Wikipedia:
    Quatermass was a British progressive rock band formed in London, England in September 1969. Lauded as a band of the future on the release of their debut album and supplementing single, "Black Sheep of the Family", major commercial success eluded the band throughout its brief duration.
    The trio consisted of bass player and vocalist John Gustafson, keyboardist J. Peter Robinson and Mick Underwood on drums, all well-established and previously distinguished musicians who had met while playing in Episode Six. As Quatermass, a distinguished organ-tinged sound was striven for by these musicians, with swinging rock coupled with striking ballads. Their first and only album sold itself through "...compactness, wealth of ideas, forceful lead vocals and complicated arrangements, enriched by pianist Robinson's tasteful use of classical strings which are on display along with spacious keyboard passages at their height in the mold of The Nice." One track, Laughin' Tackle, includes 16 violins, 6 violas, 6 cellos, and 3 double bass. The strings were arranged by Robinson. This track also includes the requisite drum solo by Underwood. In 1994, Underwood, and Nick Simper joined in a project titled Quatermass II. Gustafson contributed two songs on their eventual album, Long Road (1997), which also involved Gary Davis and Bart Foley on guitars, with Don Airey on keyboards.
    The band took its name from Professor Bernard Quatermass, a fictional scientist who had been the hero of three science fiction serials produced by BBC Television in the 1950s.

    Pussy ~ 1969 ~ Pussy Playsgenre: psych
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers, 196 mb)
    time: 35'51"

    Tapestry of Delights:
    This band was originally known as Fortes Mentum. Their album is one of the very best of the British progressive rock ultra-rarities. A five-piece band, whose complete personnel remain unknown. The album's a real gem. It kicks off with Come Back June, a keyboard-driven rock number, which is followed by one of their finest, All Of My Life. With its unusual, melodramatic vocals and fine keyboard arrangements it's well worth getting to hear. In contrast, one of the album's other nuggets, We Built The Sun, is characterised by some lovely melodic guitar work and eerie harmonies. The other highlight is The Open Ground, which is again unusual and quite trippy with partly spoken lyrics. Comets is a maze of cosmic theramin-filled sound effects and there are also some instrumental cuts Tragedy In F. Minor (which features a nice mellotron intro.) and G.E.A.B. which aren't so good. If progressive rock's your scene, this is definitely an album to check out .

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    From Cleveland, Ohio, this black group played a mix of soul funk and psych rock with fuzz and wah-wah guitars, clearly influenced by Hendrix. After some tracks like Living In The Ghetto, We Got To Pull Together or What You Do To Me, the album ends with fifteen minutes of guitar jams. The album also has really nice cover art. ~ (Clark Faville/Stephane Rebeschini)

    the Purple Gang ~ 1968 ~ The Purple Gang Strikesgenre: rockpsych
    state: ud
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers, 308 mb)
    time: 50'01"

    wikipedia:
    Although they were associated with the London psychedelic scene, they originated in Stockport, then in Cheshire, as The Young Contemporaries jugband. The band adopted the name, The Purple Gang, when they changed their image to the well-dressed, clean-cut "gangster" style in the 1960s. In London, they engaged Joe Boyd as their record producer, and shared a studio with Pink Floyd as they recorded their first single, "Granny Takes A Trip" (named after the eponymous shop in the Kings Road). Pink Floyd were making their own first single, "Arnold Layne", at the time.
    The BBC spotted the word 'trip' in the title and, assuming it to be a reference to LSD, banned the record from their airwaves. Also noting that the band's lead singer at the time (Pete Walker) was nicknamed 'Lucifer', the BBC Controller said “. . . a song with a dubious title designed to corrupt the nation’s youth – and a band that boasts a warlock for a singer will not be tolerated by any decent society . . .” An album, The Purple Gang Strikes was released in 1968, but failed to sell, although Pirate radio station DJs such as John Peel praised the group.

    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 249 mb)
    time: 41'31"

    Fuzz Acid & Flowes:
    From New Haven, Connecticut, The Pulse evolved out of The Bram Rigg Set and The Shags, and were originally known as The Pulse Of Burritt Bradley. The track, Burritt Bradley, is a surreal slice of psychedelic madness.
    By contrast, their album is a furious heavy rock affair and rated highly by some collectors.

    time: 38'54"

    discogs:
    Slovak rock group. Formed in 1963 as “The Jets” (English for “Prúdy”) by Pavol Hammel. The first Slovak rock group to have an LP album released: “Zvoňte, Zvonky” in 1969. In the 1970s the group morphed into being more of Hammel’s “trademark” for his backing band with ever changing line-ups; for instance, in the late 1970s the line-up was nearly identical to Fermáta.

    „Zvonky, zvoňte“ – 9:59
    „Pred výkladom s hračkami“ – 3:49
    „Balada o smutnom Jánovi“ – 10:01
    „Jesenné litánie“ – 3:45

    „Keď odchádza kapela“ – 3:31
    „Poď so mnou“ – 3:39

    Prudence ~ 1976 ~ 11-12'75genre: heavy prog folk
    state: norway
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 585 mb)
    time: 43'01"+49'00"
    misc.: live

    Scented Gardens of Mind:
    This group from Namsos took their name from the famous Beatles song "Dear Prudence". Partly influenced by Bob Dylan, The Band, Jethro Tull and The Beatles their idea was to make a new kind of rural Norwegian rock with the unhip accordion as one of their main instruments (along with electric guitars, mandolin and recorder).
    Their first album Tomorrow May Be Vanished (1972) was an uneven affair, but included some of the best tracks they ever wrote ("Going Through His Life" and the title track).
    Drunk And Happy (1973) was a more united rural rock effort. No. 3 (1974) showed some signs of stagnation and their songs sounded rather dull this time around. At this point they gave up their international aspirations.
    Their last studio album Takk Te Dokk (1975) was an improvement and now featured only Norwegian lyrics. As Prudence was known as a great live band, a double live album became a suitable epitaph.
    In the final analysis, none of the Prudence albums are fully convincing but as they more or less invented "Trønder-rock", Prudence have an important position in Norwegian rock history. Åge Aleksandersen and Terje Tysland later became highly successful solo artists.

    Proto-Kaw ~ 2002 ~ Early Recordings from Kansas 1971-73genre: prog
    state: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 526 mb)
    time: 1:13'04"

    Wikipedia:
    In the early 1970s, the band Kansas went through three incarnations, the common member in all three being composer and guitarist Kerry Livgren. The sound of the band changed along with the group members. Proto-Kaw is a modern name given to the second version of Kansas, whose arrangements prominently featured guitar, keyboards, and saxophone (an instrument not found in the following line-up.) The famous Kansas was actually the third edition of the band, and before a name change it was the third incarnation of Topeka band White Clover.
    Formed in 1971 and disbanding in 1973, "Kansas II" played mostly original material written by Livgren. After Kansas II broke up, the group went their separate ways with Livgren reaching fame with the more-popular Kansas and the others assuming normal lives. Then in 2002, the band's demos saw release as Early Recordings from Kansas 1971-1973, which gave the band the new moniker Proto-Kaw. Most members had not had any contact with each other for the intervening 30 years and many did not play music during this time. However, when they came together to celebrate the album's release, they rediscovered their old chemistry. Proto-Kaw reformed and at last got to record its first proper album, "Before Became After" (2004).
