    Ramases ~ 1975 ~ Glass Top Coffingenre: sympho prog folk
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 50:20 size: 271 mb

    Forgotten Sons:
    The failure of Space Hymns and the elapse of three years before the release of Glass Top Coffin seem to have taken their toll on Ramases' musicianship. Gone are the obvious religious overtones within the music as well as the tantric chants that characterized the debut album. Instead the music presented is totally unreflective and has practically no musical link at all with Space Hymns.
    In fact one feels that over this period, which was an especially long period in musical terms during the seventies when groups would churn out even two albums a year, that Ramases has matured musically. The overall layout of this album involves a rich orchestral sound coupled with straight forward ear-friendly tracks, almost sounding like a musical at times, yet on the whole a pleasant album to listen to.
    Musically, Glass Top Coffin is by far superior to Space Hymns, however, this album like its predecessor has sunk without a trace. In actual fact it makes a very relaxing listen as the orchestration as well as the vocal parts is superb. Monotony and repetitiveness is almost non-existent on this album (unlike Space hymns) while the religious undertones, when present, are almost negligible.
    Unfortunately history would dictate that this album would flounder to the extent that it has not even been made available on CD as yet, which is a pity. From a progressive rock point of view, this would be of no great loss as Space Hymns should be the one to appeal to the progressive rock fan. Having said that Glass Top Coffin does have its moment and the combination of rock and orchestra is brought out to full effect here and it is of particular interest to see how a musician could have progressed from two widely different bodies of music in such a short time span. ~ Nigel Camilleri

    state: us
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 38:18 size: 202 mb

    wikipedia:
    The first album without original members John Cipollina and David Freiberg. Nicky Hopkins had also left at this point to continue his successful journeyman career. Only Gary Duncan and Greg Elmore remained from the original quartet. The album also saw a major decline in sales: whereas their previous four albums had reached the Top 30 on Billboard, Quicksilver failed to dent the Top 100.

    Peter, Paul & Mary ~ 1963 ~ In The Windgenre: folk
    state: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 38:13 size: 360 mb

    wikipedia:
    Third album by the American folk music trio.  In the Wind was so successful that when it hit #1 on the Billboard album charts, it caused their two previous albums to re-enter the Top 10 as well. The album was released in October 1963, a few months before the arrival of the Beatles heralded the British Invasion. At this point in musical history the folk music revival was in full flower.
    The lead-off single of Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" became world famous when it sold a phenomenal three hundred thousand copies in the first week of release. On July 13, 1963, it reached number two on the Billboard pop chart, with sales exceeding one million copies. It spent five weeks atop the easy listening chart. The second single from the album, "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right", another song by Dylan, peaked at number 2 on the Adult Contemporary chart and number 9 on the Pop Singles chart.
    At the Grammy Awards of 1964, their recording of "Blowin' in the Wind" won the Best Folk Recording and Best Performance by a Vocal Group.
