    wikipedia:
    Passage is the band's first album with a true progressive rock sound. On this album, the band sounds strikingly different from their earlier releases due to significant changes in their line-up. Warren Ham (lead vocals) was added in place of departed original members Jim Rutledge (lead vocals) and Lee Pickens (lead guitar).

    Passage:
    "Help Is on the Way" (Rick Cobb / Stephen Hill) – 4:35

    Whirlwind Tongues is the final studio album continues in the path of its previous release, Passage, by contrasting with the band's earlier material in favor of a progressive rock sound. Rick Cobb III (drummer) was replaced on this release by Randy Reeder (drummer).

    Blind Ravage ~ 1970 ~ Blind Ravagegenre: heavy
    country: canada
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, covers)
    time: 37'26" size: 278 mb

    Dreams Fantasies & Nightmares:
    Album by this Montreal, Quebec-based hard rock band with psychedelic overtones and some excellent guitar work is highly-rated. Apart from the Hawkins-Lewis-Broadwater composition, Susie Q, all the tracks on the album are originals. Only problem is that musically it lacks diversity, but the final two tracks, Disaster and Loser catch the ear.
    Charbonneau, born in Riguad, Quebec, on 16th March 1947 was something of a multi-instrumentalist. He first played music at the age of 7 and can play piano, bass, mouth organ and guitar. Their organist, Serge Fleury, born in September 1944 in a Montreal University, was a music professor at a Montreal high school for four years, prior to joining the band. Bassist Robert Dufour was the band's main songwriter (though most of them were co-written with Charbonneau). He was born in Chomeday, Quebec, in November 1940 and played mouth organ and guitar too. Finally, drummer Andre Deguire was born in Montreal in March 1948. Prior to joining Blind Ravage, he'd done session drumming for several top acts. He also wrote My Life, which figured on their sole 45.

    Blackfoot Sue ~ 1974 ~ Strangersgenre: rock, pop
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers)
    time: 48'19" size: 304 mb

    wikipedia:
    Blackfoot Sue was a British pop / rock band, formed in 1970 by the twin brothers Tom and David Farmer and Eddie Golga. A single released in August 1972, "Standing in the Road" on the Jam label No. JAM 13, reached number 4 on the UK Singles Chart. Lack of further tangible success left them labelled as one-hit wonders. However, they did have another record enter the UK Singles Chart. "Sing Don't Speak" reached number 36 in December 1972. In November 1972, they appeared on the German television programme, Disco. According to Allmusic, "they were written off as a teen sensation and broke up in 1977".
    The band stopped performing live in 1977 but under the name Liner recorded a studio album, Liner, in 1979. Released on Atlantic Records and produced by Arif Mardin, it was recorded in both the UK and the U.S., using session musicians from both sides of the Atlantic, including Mel Collins, Dick Morrissey, Frank Vicari and Ronnie Cuber on saxophones; plus Cissy Houston, Maretha Stewart and Beverly Ingram on background vocals. The group scored a minor US hit, "You And Me". The fourth member of the original band, Alan Jones, later emigrated to Sydney, Australia.
    By 1984, they had formed as a trio, Outside Edge, recording a further four albums under that name.
    In 1993, the band reinvented themselves as Blackfoot Sue, with a final gig at the London Astoria in 1999.

    Black Sabbath ~ 1973 ~ Sabbath Bloody Sabbathgenre: heavy
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers)
    time: 42'27" size: 283 mb

    WikiPedia:
    Fifth studio album by English heavy metal band Black Sabbath, released in December 1973. It was produced by the band and Tom Allom and recorded at Morgan Studios in London in September 1973.
    Following Black Sabbath's 1972–1973 world tour in support of their album, Volume 4, the group returned to Los Angeles to begin work on its successor. Pleased with Volume 4, the band sought to recreate the recording atmosphere, and returned to the Record Plant Studios with new producer and engineer Tom Allom. The band rented a house in Bel Air and began writing in the summer of 1973 but, due in part to substance abuse and fatigue, were unable to complete any songs. "Ideas weren't coming out the way they were on Volume 4 and we really got discontent," guitarist and songwriter Tony Iommi said. "Everybody was sitting there waiting for me to come up with something. I just couldn't think of anything. And if I didn't come up with anything, nobody would do anything." In 2013, bassist Geezer Butler told Mojo magazine that after the tour in support of Vol. 4 the band was "absolutely, completely exhausted" and by the time they played the Hollywood Bowl, "Tony collapsed. It was really touch-and-go at one point whether he'd survive or not because he was totally depleted. So we had to cancel the rest of the tour and we actually took time off for the first time since the band started. We got away from each other and had a social life. Then we came back together to start on the next album, and couldn't come up with anything." In his autobiography I Am Ozzy, singer Ozzy Osbourne states that in the time leading up to the Hollywood Bowl "Tony had been doing coke literally for days - we all had, but Tony had gone over the edge. I mean, that stuff just twists your whole idea of reality. You start seeing things that aren't there. And Tony was gone. Near the end of the gig he walked off stage and collapsed." Regarding his writer's block, Iommi admitted to Phil Alexander in 2013, "I panicked because I didn't have a single idea about what to write. It might have been the drugs, it could have been the pressure, but either way I felt it was my fault." The band were also disappointed to discover that the room they had used previously at the Record Plant had been replaced with a "giant synthesizer" by Stevie Wonder, who had recently recorded there. ...

    Jerry Berkers ~ 1972 ~ Unterwegsgenre: kraut
    country: germany
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers)
    time: 34'12" size: 180 mb

    progarchives:
    Jerry Berkers was born in the Netherlands. He is best remembered for his work with Wallenstein ('Blitzkrieg' and 'Mother Universe') as well as his appearance on two of the Kosmische Kurrier LP's ('Lord Krishna Von Goloka' and 'Tarot')
    He only made one album in solo called "Unterwegs" (1972). The content is made of acoustic instruments, percussions with subtle keyboards parts. For the occasion, J. Berkers invited many of his friends and musicians with whom he had participated to several works for the Pilz / Kosmische Kurrier labels (Jurgen Dollase, Witthuser & Westrupp.). The compositions are melodic, pop, moody with a few complex progressive sounds put into structured short songs. The album was dedicated against the war in Vietnam (as suggest the lyrics.)

    Sleepy John ~ 2003 ~ Sleepy Johngenre: heavy
    country: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers)
    time: 1:12'39" size: 413 mb
    misc.: recorded in 1970's sessions

    AllMusic:
    Hard-driving Lewiston, ID, rock quartet Sleepy John came together at the tail end of 1969, formed by David Lee (keyboards, vocals), Tom Williams (drums), Jim Bartlett (bass, vocals), and Frank Trowbridge (guitar, vocals). Lee and Williams had begun playing together all the way back in 1963 in the Lounj Men, a first band for both teenagers. Like a majority of the garage combos that popped up in that year, the appearance of the Beatles on the American scene was their stimulus and model, though they mostly played instrumental rock & roll on the order of the Ventures. When Lee's family moved to Boise in 1965, he met Trowbridge and, over the subsequent few years, the two formed a pair of beat outfits, the Wondering Kind and Destiny, until the threat of the military draft convinced the friends to relocate to Seattle.
    Coincidentally, that very same month Williams, Jim Bartlett, and guitarist Clark Osterson had decided to move their band, Free, from Valhalla, ID, to Seattle as well. In a fortuitous bit of synchronicity, they found themselves bunking in the same boarding house as Trowbridge and Lee. Free found limited success in the summer of 1969 playing the regional open-air festivals, while Lee's new outfit, Silver Bike, worked the local club circuit. When Osterson decided to leave Free, Williams and Bartlett persuaded Trowbridge to return to Lewiston and start a new band. Silver Bike broke up at about the same time, and with Lee also joining the fold, the newly christened Sleepy John -- named after Tennessee "crying" bluesman Sleepy John Estes -- became a four-piece.
