    Grand Funk Railroad ~ 1971 ~ Survivalgenre: heavy
    country: us
    audio: lossless (wv, cue, log, covers, 284 mb)
    time: 40'50"

    Survival is Grand Funk Railroad's fourth studio album, and was released in April 1971 by Capitol Records. It was produced by Terry Knight. Drummer Don Brewer was never happy with the drum sound on the album, due to Knight's insistence of having Brewer cover his drum heads with tea-towels, after seeing Ringo Starr using that technique in the Beatles' film Let It Be.

    "Country Road" - 4:22
    "All You've Got Is Money" - 5:16
    "Comfort Me" - 6:48
    "Feelin' Alright" (Dave Mason) - 4:27
    "I Want Freedom" - 6:19
    "I Can Feel Him In The Morning" (Don Brewer, Farner) - 7:15
    "Gimme Shelter" (Mick Jagger, Keith Richards) - 6:29

    All songs by Mark Farner unless otherwise noted.

    Mark Farner - vocals, guitar, harmonica, keyboards
    Mel Schacher - bass
    Don Brewer - vocals, drums

    Gentle Giant ~ 1972b ~ Octopusgenre: prog
    country: uk
    audio: lossless (wv, cue, log, covers, 243 mb)
    time: 34'12"

    Octopus is an album by British progressive rock band Gentle Giant, released in 1972. It marked a change in drummers from Malcolm Mortimore to John Weathers. The new line-up of the band delivered the Octopus album later in 1972, generally considered to represent the start of the band's peak period. The hardest and most "rocking" Gentle Giant album to date, Octopus  was allegedly named by Phil Shulman's wife Roberta as a pun on "octo opus" (eight musical works, reflecting the album's eight tracks). In 2004, Ray Shulman commented "(Octopus) was probably our best album, with the exception, perhaps of Acquiring the Taste. We started with the idea of writing a song about each member of the band. Having a concept in mind was a good starting point for writing. I don't know why, but despite the impact of The Who's Tommy and Quadrophenia, almost overnight concept albums were suddenly perceived as rather naff and pretentious". The album maintained Gentle Giant's trademark of broad and challengingly integrated styles. One of the highlights was the intricate madrigal-styled vocal workout "Knots", lyrically inspired by the work of R. D. Laing.
    In the Q & Mojo Classic Special Edition Pink Floyd & The Story of Prog Rock, the album came #16 in its list of "40 Cos
    mic Rock Albums".

    Gasolin' ~ 1976 ~ Live Sådangenre: hard
    country: denmark
    audio: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 594 mb)
    time: 1:10'22"

    Gasolin' was a Danish rock band from Christianshavn in Copenhagen formed by Kim Larsen, Franz Beckerlee and Wili Jønsson in 1969. Their first drummer was the late Bjørn Uglebjerg. He was replaced by Søren Berlev in 1971. At the formation the guitar playing of Franz Beckerlee was inspired by Jimi Hendrix and the singing and lyrics of Larsen was inspired by Bob Dylan, while the rhythm playing of Jønsson and Berlev owed much to The Beatles. However, they would soon develop their own musical style. The pop sensibility of Kim Larsen, the artistic attitude of Franz Beckerlee and the musical competence of Wili Jønsson would prove to be a recipe for success. Gasolin's lyrics were generally written by the entire group, often with the assistance of friend Mogens Mogensen.

    audio: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 426 mb)
    time: 1:10'22"

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Greenwood in Mississippi was home to this band which came together in 1963. They were actually known as The Kingsmen. They called themselves The Gants when Johnny Sanders replaced Johnny Freeman on guitar. The name was taken from a local shirt manufacturer! In their early days, they sounded much like The Beatles and by chance The Animals' manager Mike Jeffries spotted them playing in Mississippi and booked them as a support act for an Animals tour.
    Before long they were in Alabama's Muscle Shoals studio recording their own arrangement of Bo Diddley's Roadrunner. It was very popular locally and after release on a couple of local labels it was picked up by Liberty and this national distribution took it to No. 46 in the national charts. An album followed and was made up from material recorded at the same session. It was a mixture of punk covers like Gloria and House of The Rising Sun and Sid Herring compositions like the melodic My Baby Don't Care and Six Days In May which underscored Herring's songwriting skills.

    time: 41'50"

    Free Your Mind... and Your Ass Will Follow is the second studio album by American funk band Funkadelic, released in July 1970 by Westbound Records.
    The album was recorded at United Sound Studios, Audio Graphic Services, and G-M Recording Studios in Detroit. The inspiration for this album was, according to George Clinton, an attempt to "see if we can cut a whole album while we're all tripping on acid.
    The album's gatefold cover forms something of a visual pun, echoing the sentiments of the album title. The sight of a woman holding her arms towards heaven in an ecstatic pose is subverted upon opening the sleeve to find that she is nude
