    Tapestry Of Delights:

    Originally from Warwick, The Edgar Broughton Band were an important part of the underground scene in the late sixties and early seventies. The Edgar Broughton Band's vocal style was undoubtedly influenced by the growling Captain Beefheart and their first two albums as a three-piece, while containing some interesting ideas lyrically, were patchy musically. Highlights included Death Of An Electric Citizen and American Boy Soldier from Wasa Wasa and Aphrodite, Momma's Reward and The Moth from Sing Brother Sing. Recruitment of Victor Unitt (formerly connected with The Pretty Things) led to a more accessible style musically but they remained an underground politico / rock band. Their third album, the infamous meat cover self-titled album remains their supreme achievement. In particular Side One is a tour de force of evocative lyrics, good rock music and an excellent acoustic track Poppy - a 1971 equivalent of The Stranglers' Golden Brown.

    Their fourth album has a gimmick cover (hence the title Inside Out) and is stronger lyrically than musically. Highlights are Get Out Of Bed and Homes Fit For Heroes and an interesting song about the sexual possibilities of a rake. Their fifth album and last to feature Victor Unitt - Oora - is more mainstream rock and makes use of girl backing singers. Highlights are Hurricane Man, Things On My Mind and Exhibits From A New Museum. The band then had a three year sabbatical from recording and even then Bandages was delayed a further year due to legal wrangles. Highlights were I Want To Lie and Signal Inspector. Their seventh studio album Parlez Vous Anglais was recorded in 1979 and their eighth Superchip in 1982. Neither of the last two can be recommended even if Peter Hope-Evans of Medicine Head played harmonica on two tracks of the Parlez Vous Anglais album. The Edgar Broughton Band may not have made it big but they endeared themselves to the early seventies concert-going public because of their extensive gigging and appearances at most of the UK open-air festivals of the time. They were very popular on the Continent, particularly Germany, and with the Broughton's mum driving the tour bus they became known as the 'Legendary' Edgar Broughton Band.

    Their manager was killed in a tour bus road accident, Edgar suffered mental health problems but the band survived and were still touring in the early nineties when Edgar had become a social worker. All their studio albums are now available on CD. incidentally Steve Broughton appeared on Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells.

    John Thomas also recorded as Creepy John Thomas.

    Blue Sandalwood Soap ~ 1996 ~ Loring Park Love-Ins

    time: 50'44" size: 314 mb


    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:

    Hailed from Minneapolis. Max Waller drew the 45 to my attention. The 'A' side is a mellow psychedelic ballad with a catchy instrumental refrain - keyboard dominated with brass that's not too intrusive. The flip features nonsensical psychedelic lyrics and is somewhat fragmented - a strange trip (shades of the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band?).

    Harley Toberman, also produced some of T.C. Atlantic's material, and also wrote material for them under his nickname "Toby".

    Le Orme - 1974 - Contrappunti

    genre: prog

    country: italy

    quality : lossless (ape, cue, log, scans)

    time: 33`33" size: 200 mb


    Review by Matt P. @ Ground and Sky:

    At 33 minutes, it's abnormally short. But I'd much rather hear 33 minutes of really good music this way than dispersed across a 70 minute CD (a problem all too common with new releases these days). I think this is where Le Orme finally broke through and made a distinctive, top-shelf album. The previous releases definitely had their strengths, but Le Orme seemed unable to be at their most "progressive" without sounding like ELP. Apart from the title track, I don't find that to be the case here at all, as the band seemed to explore a more deliberate, almost mathematical approach to the construction of their pieces. That this album is dominated by keyboard textures makes this all the more significant, since it was these kinds of songs that the band previously struggled with the most insofar as finding their own voice: Le Orme always wrote superlative short melodic vocal tunes featuring acoustic guitars.
