    the Human Beinz ~ 1968 ~ Evolutionsgenre: psych
    country: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers)
    time: 34'16"  size: 228 mb

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Human Beinz came from Youngstown Ohio, and were originally known as The Human Beingz. The split Gateway album, with The Mammals, included four cuts by them, which display their British invasion influences - but as with their Gateway 45s, are now virtually disowned by the band.
    Under the guidance of their producer Alex "Lez" De Azevedo, they developed into a fine psychedelic pop group with a sense of humour. Their second album, contained one of the all-time punk classics, Nobody But Me and the third too is recommended - consisting of anglophile pop, weird psychedelic ballads and some great psychedelia - inconsistent in places but good overall. The third album also contained a 7 minute guitar freakout April 15th, which was arguably their finest moment.
    Nobody But Me remains one of the best recordings of this period, and second and third albums are worth checking out.
    Dick Belley later had a spell in The (Pied) Pipers. ~ (George Gell/Max Waller/Mike McKay/Stephane Rebeschini)

    time: 38'44"

    Tapestry Of Delights:
    This was a short-lived hard rock outfit. Rick Parnell was later in Atomic Rooster. The opening cut, The Sacrifice, is in the mould of Black Widow. Overall, it's only likely to be of interest to hard rock fans. 
    Adrian Hawkins and Rod Roach later played in Saturnalia.

    the Iveys ~ 1969 ~ Maybe Tomorrowgenre: beat
    country: uk
    audio: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers, 245 mb)
    time: 45'53"

    Tapestry of Delights: 
    From South Wales this lot started life as The Iveys. Paul McCartney was sufficiently impressed by a demo tape they sent to him to have them signed to Apple in 1968. Their debut 45 didn't sell in the UK but did climb to No 67 in the States. Griffiths departed at this point and was replaced by Molland. Their second 45 also got released in Europe in 1969 but later that year, having recorded a Paul McCartney song, Come And Get It, they changed their name to Badfinger.
    Although the album was scheduled to be released worldwide, the release in the US and UK at that time was halted without explanation. Many reasons for halting the album have been suggested by the band and Apple employees, but the most common theory in that Apple's newly hired president, Allen Klein, stopped all non-Beatle releases on Apple until he could examine the company's finances, which were in disarray at the time.
    A majority of the album's songs were later issued as Badfinger songs on the Badfinger album Magic Christian Music.

    Itoiz ~ 1980 ~ Ezekielgenre: folk, jazz
    country: spain
    audio: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers, 226 mb)
    time: 37'26"

    Scented Gardens of Mind: 
    This Basque group are best known among collectors for their first album, which is among the rarest from Europe in its original first press with a plastic window front sleeve. It's not common for late 70's rare albums to fetch amounts beyond 1,000 Euro and particularly not those falling into the 'symphonic' genre, which this arguably does. Itoiz is a soft, graceful album with poetical qualities, not least the 10-minute track "Goizeko Deiadar". Itoiz sing in their own tongue, which makes the lyrics incomprehensable for everyone else ! Piano and artificial strings are frequently used, augmented by organ, flute and sudden bursts of lead guitars. The pompous arrangements remind one of Genesis and Camel, although Itoiz also draw from their own folklore, as on the beautiful and emotional "Errotaberri". The tender and passionate (or even pathetic) vocals are similar to certain Italian bands. The status of this album is understandable, although those looking for powerful rock must search elsewhere!
    Ezekiel (1980) was a more up-beat affair, moving more towards folk and jazz than symphonic rock. Synthesizers were omitted and sax and violin added. The compostions were not quite up to the standard of the previous album, but are still fairly good.
    Alkolea (1982) followed more or less the same path as Ezekiel (some tracks were closer to conventional soft rock but still satisfying). Itoiz continued to make albums in the 80's, although these are quite commercial and consequently of little interest.

    genre: psych, prog, country
    country: us
    audio: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 237 mb)
    time: 38'09"

    The second Lp from It's a Beautiful Day is an exceedingly more pastoral effort than the band's self-titled debut. As many of the Bay Area groups -- most notably the Grateful Dead with Workingman's Dead and American Beauty -- had begun to do, the band realigns its sound from the dark psychedelia and proto-prog of its earlier works and into a lighter and earthier country-flavored rock. Marrying Maiden does, however, continue highlighting both the sextet's stellar instrumental proficiencies as well as vocals -- featuring the entire band -- throughout. "Don and Dewey," the album's opener, is a hot-steppin' spotlight for David LaFlamme's classically trained violin work. Presumably, the tune is an ode to the late-'50s/early-'60s R&B duo of the same name. The track has distinct hints of the concurrent contributions that LaFlamme had been making in an incipient incarnation of Dan Hick & His Hot Licks. It likewise sets the tenor for the remainder of the disc's down-home feel. The cover of folkie Fred Neil's "The Dolphins" is notable for Fred Webb's honky tonk piano fills and LaFlamme's vocals, recalling some of the earliest New Riders of the Purple Sage sides. One of the more solidly unifying factors linking the NRPS and It's a Beautiful Day is the guest appearance by Jerry Garcia, who is featured on two numbers. As he had done on Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's "Teach Your Children," Garcia lends a few distinct pedal steel guitar riffs to the perky "It Comes Right Down to You." The track also features former Charlatan Richard Olsen on, of all things, clarinet. Another sign of the times is the pickin' and grinnin' on the appropriately titled "Hoedown" -- on which Garcia adds some fiery banjo fretwork. ~ Review by Lindsay Planer

    Iris ~ 1972 ~ Litaniesgenre: sympho prog
    country: france
    audio: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 190 mb)
    time: 34'54"

    Scented Gardens of Mind:
    Their only album contained nice, quiet, soft progressive rock. The emphasis lies on melody with tender, high-pitched vocals, sometimes in close duets. Organ is the principal instrument, sharing some classical aspirations with Procol Harum. Arguably, this music is closely related to the softest elements of several late-60's UK groups, such as Soft Machine (Wyatt's "Hope For Happiness"), Pink Floyd (their post-Barrett singles) and The Who (their falsetto vocal pop songs). No other French group I can think of had this attractive, lush, lightness at this time. Tony and Alain Carbonare later played in the folk group Machin.
