    Al Stewart - 1969 - Love Chroniclesgenre: folk
    country: uk
    quality : lossless (2007, flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 52'03" size: 387 mb

    Al Stewart's second album is most renowned for the 18-minute title track, an autobiographical recount of different love affairs with guitar by Jimmy Page. That track was also quite controversial for its day in its use of the word "f*cking" at one point in the lyrics, though that's not typical of the tone of the composition. It's actually not the best of the six songs on the record, which saw Stewart wisely discard the orchestration of his debut in favor of fairly straight-ahead folk-rock backing. "Ballad of Mary Foster" is Stewart's best early song, as a two-part suite neatly divided between brusque cynical commentary on a bourgeois English family and the introspective musings of the ravaged wife. That second part bears considerable similarity in melody and tempo, incidentally, to sections of the far more famous Stewart song "Roads to Moscow." The rest of the album has additional solid vignettes in the standard gentle yet detached Stewart mold, the best of them being "Life and Life Only," which exploits his knack for insistent, repetitive minor-keyed hooks. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

    Tapestry of Delights:
    Their album, which was produced by Trevor Walters, is now a minor collectable. It contains a reasonable version of Season Of The Witch and a less impressive cover of Davidson's Angry Faces, but it's the group and Ian Willis compositions which catch the ear. The best group compositions are Cold Embrace, The Dark Lord and Midsummer Nights Dream. All three are heavyish psychedelic rock with some good guitar work. Willis' contributions ranged from Escalator, another heavy, quite psychedelic number and probably the album's finest moment to the mellower The Sky Is Burning and the sensitive, slightly Eastern-influenced Yesterlove. Four album tracks also appeared on an EP.
    The Psychedelic Salvage Co, Vol. 1 includes Horse, which is well worth a listen. Vol. 2 of the same series includes their reasonable stab at Back Door Man. Neither of these two cuts were on their album. 'Lemmy' was later in Hawkwind and Motorhead.

    Sagittarius ~ 1968 ~ Present Tense
    genre: baroque pop, psych
    country: us
    quality: lossless (WavPack, cue, log, scans) & mp3 (320k, scans)
    time: 28'05"  size: 173 or 70 mb
    misc.: 2004

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:

    Sagittarius were a studio group created by producer, Gary Usher (who had earlier produced albums by The Byrds, Gene Clarke, Chad & Jeremy, The Millennium and The Peanut Butter Conspiracy). Curt Boettcher helped with the arrangements and Terry Melcher was also involved in the projects. Both albums were of particular interest for their high degree of orchestration and polish. In this respect, they were ahead of their times.

    Glen Campbell and Bruce Johnston (later of The Beach Boys) were involved in the first single, My World Fell Down, which came from a bunch of John Carter demos intended for Chad & Jeremy, who refused to cut the vocal... Usher made the backing track a bit freakier (i.e. adding more stops and starts, using The Firesign Theatre) and recorded it himself. Glen Campbell sings lead on the recording with Bruce Johnston and Terry Melcher providing backing. It's possible that Chuck Girard and some other Beach Boys etc. are in there too, although only Bruce and Glen are on the contract card for the session. My World Fell Down received considerable airplay in New York, although it failed to make the Top 40. It can also be found on the original Nuggets compilation, and it's expanded Nuggets 4-CD counterpart.

    Their second 45 Hotel Indiscreet was arranged by Boettcher for outrageous multipart vocals and also features the writers Jim Griffin, (later in Bread), Michael Z. Gordon and The Firesign Theatre... Another couple of tracks on the first album feature these kind of combinations, featuring the nascent Millennium and such unlikely figures as Angelo Badalamente (of "Twin Peaks" fame) as players and writers... the remainder being basically a combination of unused Ballroom tracks, and new songs which were worked up for the Millennium and consequently bumped up to "Grandiose Stereo" mixes. The singles are entirely and radically different versions to the album ones... with the first two minus the 'sound collages' in their album form.

    The second album was recorded on Usher's own Together label and contained some beautiful love songs such as Will You Ever See Me, I Still Can See Your Face and I See In You. More coherent in theme though not as immediate as the first, ecology and religion/philosopphy are to the fore, as they were in Ushers next project, Celestium, which carried the sound and themes of Blue Marble into a more somber, almost Krautrock vein.. kind of like Gary Usher meets Bowie's Low!

    Scented Gardens Of The Mind:
    This concept album has attained much interest among collectors over recent years. While some parts have medieval folk mixed with modern textures, others are dominated by spoken vocals. You shouldn't acquire this record unless you understand French. The music alone can't justify its expensive price tag. Try Ripaille instead!
