    Walrus ~ 1970 ~ Walrusgenre: heavy prog
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 44:10 size: 302 mb

    In the late sixties, bassist Steve Hawthorn came up with an idea to fuse rock and jazz. By 1969, he'd formed Walrus, an eight-piece monster (the band's roster in the tradition of large orchestral groups would fluctuate many times throughout Walrus's short career) and the band toured heavily around the London area.
    In June of the same year, Walrus was picked up by Decca Records, handed some money, and told to produce an album. Their self-titled debut was released in December [though technically a 1970 release] on Decca's Deram label with Hawthorn on bass along with John Scates on guitars, Barry Parfitt on keyboards, Nick Gabb's & Roger Harrison's drums, the vocals of Noel Greenway, and Don Richards, Roy Voce & Bill Hoad on various brass instruments, the track "Who Can I Trust?" being pushed as the single.
    However, the outfit was not to be. Another album was never realized and by 1972, despite having attained a large and faithful live following, the band split up. Among the many Walrus alumni, only occasional percussionist Ian Mosely went on to musical success, becoming a member of Marillion.
    Although Hawthorn's dream was for Walrus to become a fusion of jazz & rock, the band's style is more reminiscent of orchestral early blues a la Jethro Tull or Room. However, it is progressive blues with the lengthy jams of Tull mixed together with the chaos of Amon Duul II and a touch of early King Crimson to keep everyone sane. A rare treat for fans of early 70s classic prog. ~ Whistle

    Walpurgis ~ 1972 ~ Quenn Of Sabagenre: prog
    state: germany
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 38:16 size: 223 mb

    Crack in the Cosmic Egg:
    Strongly inspired by the likes of Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, etc., the Berlin band Walpurgis hit blues rock and West Coast American styles against space music reasonably successfully.
    On their sole album QUEEN OF SABA, they opened with the aptly titled "Disappointment". But, from thereon, despite a cranky vocalist, it gets better and better, and the guest appearance of Jürgen Dollase (of Wallenstein) fills the sound out nicely, later taking the music on to Ash Ra Tempel and Agitation Free realms.

    Wally ~ 1974 ~ Wallygenre: prog, country
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 41:30 size: 267 mb

    Wally, led by the singer-songwriter Roy Webber, was an English progressive rock band, which originated in Harrogate, Yorkshire, in the early 1970s.
    Their debut album, Wally, released in 1974 was co-produced by Harris, along with Rick Wakeman who had seen one of the band's warm up gigs before the Roundhouse final.
    After its release the band, now managed by Brian Lane, best known as the manager of Yes, embarked on a series of tours taking in most of Britain, Japan and the United States. They supported Yes at a headline London concert at the Alexandra Palace and also made an appearance on The Old Grey Whistle Test. On their second album, Valley Gardens, Nick Glennie-Smith replaced Paul Gerrett on keyboards. However by that time continual touring had taken its toll, and the band eventually split after Atlantic decided to cut their losses and pulled the plug.
    In 1975, the band performed in Japan, as the backing band of French singer Michel Polnareff.

    Scott Walker ~ 1969 ~ Scott 3genre: art pop
    state: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 37:23 size: 212 mb

    The third solo album by singer songwriter Scott Walker.
    Upon release in 1969, it met with slower sales than his previous albums, as pop audiences struggled to keep pace with Walker's increasingly experimental approach. The dense lush string arrangements by Wally Stott seemed to evoke a Vegas-style lounge crooner atmosphere, but one tinted with surreal drones and touches of dissonance.
    Since its release, it has been regarded by many of Walker's fans as a favourite.

    Gary Walker & The Rain ~ 1968 ~ Album No.1genre: great mersey beat
    state: us/uk
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 51:52 size: 293 mb

    Tapestry of Delights:
    A London-based US-born artist, who was backed by The Rain, a pretty typical beat-cum-psych late sixties outfit. More interesting than the above 45s is the album, Gary Walker And The Rain Album, No 1, which was only released in Japan. It includes some of the better 45 cuts but also contains a few psychedelic gems, particularly If You Don't Come Back, which is very psychedelic and has some great guitar work and an instrumental, Thoughts Of An Old Man. Two other cuts, Magazine Woman and Market Tavern are sort of mod/pop/psych, the latter with lots of phasing too. Recommended.
    Gary Walker, incidentally, was one of The Walker Brothers, until he was ousted in 1967. As Gary Leeds he'd been in the early Standells. Then in 1966 frustrated at his limited role in the band he began a solo career. His first two efforts were minor hits and then he formed Rain with former Cryin' Shames' guitarist Paul Crane and ex-Masterminds' guitarist Joey Molland.
    They kicked off with a cover of Spooky, which had been a big US hit for The Classics IV. They followed this with a cover of The Easybeats' Come In You'll Get Pneumonia, which was backed by the self-penned Francis, a superb slice of pop-psych. Gary Walker sometimes went under the name Gary Leeds and his 45s are often credited as such.
    The Gary Walker And The Rain, No. 1 album has been bootlegged on vinyl, and has also been reissued officially on CD with three bonus tracks - Francis, I Can't Stand To Lose You and Come In You'll Get Pheumonia.
    Joey Molland was later in Badfinger. Lawson (ex-Universals) went on to play in
