    Genesis ~ 1970 ~ Trespassgenre: psych, prog
    country: uk
    audio: lossless (ape, cue, log, scans)
    time: 42'43" size: 230 mb

    From ProgressiveRock :
    Having graduated from Charterhouse, the boys decided to become professional musicians and in the summer of 1969 set off to do so. Replacing Silver, drummer John Mayhew was found via a Melody Maker advert. They settled into old classmate Richard McPhail's parents’ cottage and began writing and rehearsing. It was here, in these idyllic surroundings and under the influence of Crimson’s debut that the band’s early compositions and live set congealed. Meanwhile, they began gigging - anywhere anyone would book them. At a brief residency at Ronnie Scott's (Upstairs), Tony Stratton-Smith first went to hear them (on producer John Anthony's recommendation), and in a leap of faith signed them to his Charisma label. They entered Trident to record their second album in June. Trespass was gentle and immature - and one hundred percent Genesis. Everything was within, although in nascent form: the twelve strings, the lyricism and drama, and above all the originality. You had to hand it to Charisma; Strat left his bands to their own devices from which they evolved their own particular and peculiar styles. Genesis was no exception. "Looking for Someone" was delicate, but full of dynamics. Standouts included the elegant "Stagnation" with one of Tony Banks most sensitive organ solos, and their raucous and electric set closer on "The Knife". Shortly after recording Trespass, Anthony Phillips decided to leave the band. One of the primary writers, the Genesis’ future would again be left to uncertainty. However, with the support of Charisma relief was just around the corner.

    the Gods ~ 1969 ~ To Samuel A Songenre: heavy psych
    country: uk
    audio: lossless (ape, cue, log, scans)
    time: 47'35" size: 274 mb

    Tapestry of Delights:
    Not to be confused with the American group of the same name, this Gods were formed in Hatfield in 1965 by Mick Taylor and the Glasscock brothers (all ex-Juniors). Taylor was a great John Mayall fan and left to join his Bluesbreakers in the Summer of 1967. He left behind a faltering blues band.
    Line-up 'B' sought to revive their fortunes on the club/college circuit and relocating to London, secured a residency at the Marquee. The problem was that Greg Lake was too talented for the background role the rest of the band had in mind for him and in the Summer of 1968 he split to join King Crimson. The band had to re-group again but line-up 'C', with John Glasscock back in the fold, recorded a couple of interesting progressive rock albums and a few 45s. Of these Hey! Bulldog, the Beatles track, is their best known.
    Their Genesis album is also certainly worth checking out, consisting as it does of an imaginative amalgam of psychedelia and progressive rock. Its better tracks like Towards The Skies and Time And Eternity are full of heavy ploughing Hammond organ and distorted guitar riffs and Ken Hensley's unique and rather dramatic vocals add a further dimension. The recent Repertoire reissues also includes bonus cuts.
    The Best Of The Gods compilation is another good way to access their material which is for the most part pretty typical late sixties pop/rock, epitomised by songs like Radio Show and Yes I Cry. There are shades of Vanilla Fudge on their cover of West Side Story extract Maria but only on a few tracks like Candlelight and Real Love Guaranteed is there an inkling of the heavier sound Hensley and Kerslake would propagate in their next venture, Uriah Heep.
    Curiously it appears that the Glasscock brothers, Konas, Hensley and Kerslake were also responsible for the Head Machine album, recorded under pseudonyms in 1970. This too, is worth hearing.  ~ (Vernon Joynson/Martin Dench)

    Gnidrolog ~ 1972 ~ Lady Lakegenre: prog
    country: uk
    audio: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 38'39" size: 231 mb

    This is the second and last Gnidrolog album (not counting the 'Live' album of the same year) before they split for a long 17 years. Apart from Gnidrolog, these first of all are UK (after "Danger Money"), Argent (after "Counterpoint"), Light (after "Light"), and a few more, maybe. 
    First off, "Lady Lake" is the work of unique originality. In spite of the presence of already universally recognized (a lot of) Titans and (lots of) other quite strong and original bands cultivating the same fields of Progressive Rock, "Lady Lake" is full of Inspiration and free of influences.
    This is an album of excellent sound quality, which is quite rare for those years. As a real Classic For the Future, "Lady Lake" today is even more than simply listenable work (of genius). While all its vocal themes are excellent, all the instrumental parts within each separate song are simply outstanding with their powerful (real!) jams, full of incredible, diverse interplays between all the instrument(alist)s but especially between saxophones / flutes and lead guitar.
    Twin-brothers Stewart (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Colin Goldring (rhythm guitar, lead vocals) composed all these songs separately from each other, too, as they were / still are going quite diffferent ways in composing. And if instrumental arrangements (that are made by all the band members, though) in all their songs have some obvious similar structures, Colin prefers more melodic vocal themes, whereas Stewart uses his brother's lyrics for more adventurous singing. The final song is a purely instrumental piece played virtuostically by Stewart on acoustic guitar only. This is one a few real gems of that 'style' together with Mood For the Day (by Steve Howe, from "Fragile", Yes-1972-I), Horizons (by Steve Hackett, from "Foxtrot", Genesis-1972), ...

    Hawkwind ~ 1977 ~ Quark, Strangeness And Charmgenre: psych
    country: uk
    audio: lossless (ape, cue, log, scans)
    time: 36'55" size: 231 mb

    PsychedelicShark : 
    The first post-Turner LP, but Calvert is on his most wired, top form. 'Spirit Of The Age' is a wry letter home from the other side of the universe, 'Damnation Alley' evokes Zelazny's post-apocalyse nuclear wasteland and the title track is a snappy poke at Einstein and boffins in general. 'Fable of a Failed Race' and 'Days of the Underground' look back to the high times of the counter-culture. A great album, with the band adapting with ease into the post-punk world.

    Spirit of the Age
    Damnation Alley (Calvert, Brock, House)
    Fable of a Failed Race
    Quark Strangeness And Charm
