    La Pentola di Papin ~ 1977 ~ Zero 7genre: prog
    state: italy
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers, size: 248 mb)
    time: 35'55"

    Scented Gardens of Mind:
    A minor league progressive band who attracted little attention in the late seventies. Their album didn't contain many ideas beyond the average, and was dominated by string synthesizers, piano and a remarkably strange, almost psychedelic, distorted guitar sound. Apart from that, the album is comparable to Corte Dei Miracoli and the keyboard work of Hugh Banton in Van Der Graaf Generator. The track "Introduzione" (9:43) contains some fine instrumental work, but the rest of the album was largely song-based.

    01. Introduzione 9:46
    02. Stacco I 4:09
    03. Cieli Aperti 4:05
    04. Una Vecchia Storia 6:00

    the Peep Show ~ 1999 ~ Mazygenre: psych pop
    state: uk
    quality: mp3 (320k, covers, size: 100 mb)
    time: 43'11"
    misc: recorded '67-'68

    This obscure London-based four-piece group is best remembered for Mazy, a dreamy, rather haunting slice of flower power. Apparently, their 45s were jointly produced by Peter Meadon, who'd helped mould The Who in their early days as The High Numbers, and Norman Jopling, who worked at 'Record Mirror'. Your Servent, Steven was also recorded by The Blues Magoos.

    01. Your Servant Stephen 2:56
    02. Mazy 3:21
    03. Big giant man 2:55
    04. Lost my lover 2:30
    05. Lovey dovey feeling 2:27
    06. Silver queen of the screen 2:32
    07. When you're getting tired 1:59
    08. Rum sensation 2:09
    09. Called and chosen 2:11
    10. Esprit de corps 2:53
    11. The hovercraft song 2:22
    12. Goodbye child 2:28
    13. Morning 2:52
    14. Do not wait for better times 3:26
    15. Mazy (two-track original) 3:02

    Panna Fredda ~ 1972 ~ Unogenre: prog
    state: italy
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers, size: 206 mb)
    time: 33'44"

    With a great album, highly representative of the italian prog sound, Panna Fredda should have deserved some more success, but theirs is the typical story of a band having a record deal and not being able to produce an album. Uno was delayed for many months after its recording and even broadcast in radio programs before its release, but the record company, Vedette, didn't support  it at all and the band disappeared.
    Their first album, Panna Fredda Uno, was finally released in 1971, but as mentioned above, the group had already ceased to exist by the time of its release, as the various members had to join the army for their call-up.
    All the tracks on the album were composed by singer/guitarist Angelo Giardinelli, and the LP contains six long cuts, mostly based on a very effective guitar-keyboards interplay. Some english prog influences can be heard, like on Un re senza reame based on Heaven from Gracious' first album. Classical influences are evident, especially in the keyboard parts, but the music is convincing and impressive. The voice is good, the lyrics original and the album has no weak points. 
    Original keyboardist Giorgio Brandi entered i Cugini di Campagna with which he has had a long and successful career, until the mid 90's, and now owns a recording studio.
    Roberto Balocco was later with Capsicum Red.

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    A San Jose band who formed at Saratoga high school. They played at local dances and won a battle of the bands contest at their school, which led to the above album. Produced by Guy Hemric and Jerry Styner, it is quickly becoming a significant collectors' item. Probably the two most promising tracks on a rather disappointing LP are Falling and It's Wrong. Circumstance is also notable for some wild, early Blue Cheer-style guitar pyrotechnics. ~ (Vernon Joynson/Stephane Rebeschini/Doug Creager)

    Oriental Sunshine ~ 1970 ~ Dedicated To The Bird We Lovegenre: psych, raga, folk
    state: norway
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, size: 174 mb)
    time: 30'30"

    Supremely mellow, tender Eastern psyche from Norway circa 1970, Oriental Sunshine bombed hard on the initial release of Dedicated To The Bird We Love – perhaps Norway wasn't hip to the sound of sitar psyche back then? 
    There's really no good reason for this not to have become a classic album in its time – it's truly beautiful, high-quality psychedelic rock amongst the best of its generation. Thankfully, the fine folks at Sunbeam have shown great generosity in bringing Oriental Sunshine back to the surface again. 
    Comparisons to the softer psyche sounds of Magic Carpet, Mellow Candle, Linda Perhacs, Vashti Bunyan, Velvet Underground and H.P. Lovecraft are warranted. The music is so sophisticated that at times I even think of the early albums by Return To Forever with Flora Purim. 
    Singer Nina Johansen has a gorgeous flowing, airy voice with a very nice vibrato that soars elegantly over freely dancing forest flutes and masterful sitar voyages. Percussion is of the soft and ethnic variety. Pianos round out the sound. 
    Fans on incense-heavy, flower power Eastern-tinged psyche will find nothing finer than the smooth sound of Oriental Sunshine. This is probably the best psyche album I have heard in years, and considering how many lost classics are seeing the light of day lately – and then finding their way onto the Left Hip stereo, that's no small compliment. Very highly recommended.  ~ Gordon B. Isnor
