    Pilot ~ 1974 ~ From The Album Of The Same Namegenre: glampop rock
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, cover, size: 396 mb)
    time: 57'02"

    Tapestry of Delights:
    Pilot came together in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1973. Paton and Lyall had previously played in teenybop outfit The Bay City Rollers. They recorded a series of demos in London eventually getting signed up by EMI. A fourth Scotsman, Ian Bairnson, a session guitarist who came from the Shetland Isles, was added to the line-up at this stage.
    They played a lightweight but well-crafted form of pop. Twenty years on they are remembered for good tunes like Magic and January, the latter was a No 1 here. In the States their biggest hit was Magic, which got to No 5. After a couple more minor hits - Call Me Round and Just A Smile (the latter was a reissue of their first 45) - their sales soon plummeted and they went their separate ways. A final album, Two's A Crowd (Arista SPARTY 1014) was released in 1977 along with three further 45s which made little impression. Bairnson and Paton both went into session work, Tosh joined 10cc and Lyall recorded a solo album Solo Casting. Lyall later joiner Dollar but died in late 1989 of an A.I.D.S.-related illness.
    More recently Ian and David have re-recorded their 1977 album Two's A Crowd. ~ (Vernon Joynson/Hans-Juergen Merkel)

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    This album, which has attracted little interest from collectors to date, to my attention. It's a typical West Coast-sounding album with some nice female vocals from Cheri Gage, although most of the tracks feature harmony vocals. Mostly soft rock it includes one good rocker, The Dancer.

    Pickettywitch ~ 2001 ~ That Same Old Feelinggenre: sunshine pop
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, covers, size: 581 mb)
    time: 1:18'02"

    Tapestry of Delights:
    Pickettywitch, which was named after a Cornish village, first caught the eye in 1969 when they appeared on ITV's 'Opportunity Knocks' singing Soloman Grundy, which was composed and arranged by Tony Macauley and John McLeod. The song appeared on the flip side to their debut 45, but it was the follow-up, That Same Old Feeling, that took them into the Charts. It also got to No 67 in the USA. A string of mostly Macauley-McLeod compositions followed but failed to attain the same commercial success and the group ended up on the cabaret circut, before splitting up. Polly Brown later went solo and got to No 43 in the UK Charts in 1974 with Up In A Puff Of Smoke. In the US it fared better climbing to No 16. She was later in a soul-reggae duo called Sweet Dreams.

    John Phillips ~ 1969 ~ John, The Wolf King Of L.A.genre: folk
    state: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, covers, size: 207 mb)
    time: 33'51"

    John Phillips (John, the Wolf King of L.A.) is the first solo recording by the Mamas & the Papas leader John Phillips. All songs were Phillips originals, dealing mostly with recent events in Phillips' life, including references to his new girlfriend Geneviève Waïte and longtime friend Ann Marshall ("April Anne"). The backing musicians included members of Wrecking Crew. Today the album receives favorable reviews from fans and critics alike. The album was selected as one of ShortList's 50 Coolest Albums Ever.
    As Phillips was the backing singer in the Mamas and the Papas, with the other three serving as lead singers, the album mix tends to de-emphasize his lead vocals. Denny Doherty stated that, had the Mamas & the Papas performed this album, it would have been one of their finest, because of the strength of Phillips' songs. The single "Mississippi" reached the US Billboard top 40. Phillips and the other members of the Mamas & the Papas were threatened with a lawsuit just as the album was released, discouraging the label from promoting the album.

    Anthony Phillips ~ 1977 ~ The Geese And The Ghostgenre: prog, folk
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, covers, size: 577 mb)
    time: 49'34"+58'06"

    The Geese and the Ghost is the debut solo album from former Genesis guitarist Anthony Phillips. It was originally intended as a duet between Phillips and former bandmate Mike Rutherford, but Rutherford's difficulty in devoting time to the project ultimately mandated that he be dropped from co-billing with Phillips to guest musician status.
    In 1969, just prior to an extensive tour for Genesis, Phillips and bassist Mike Rutherford wrote a good deal of music, committing the material to tape to preserve a record of the work. Among the tracks was a piece entitled "D Instrumental", a song that would eventually become the album's title track. Following his departure from Genesis in 1970, Phillips wrote many of the songs that would ultimately constitute the rest of the album. Phillips at this time became more interested in his musical studies and work on the material was put aside until 1973 when he re-connected with Rutherford to work on small projects including a prospective single release, "Silver Song"/"Only Your Love", that included Genesis drummer Phil Collins on vocals. This material convinced Genesis label Charisma Records to front the money for initial work on an album to begin.
    Always intending the album project to be a collaboration with Rutherford, Phillips found it difficult to schedule time when the two could work together, as Rutherford's Genesis schedule was proving hectic during the recording of their double album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. In 1974, an injury to Phillips' Genesis successor, Steve Hackett, provided the opening Phillips and Rutherford needed and a great deal of work on the album was recorded in October of that year. While Rutherford rejoined Genesis, Phillips continued work on the album until another break allowed them to continue work on the album in the summer of 1975.

    Phafner ~ 1972 ~ Overdrivegenre: heavy psych
    state: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, covers, size: 132 mb)
    time: 25'47"

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    This band formed in Marshalltown, Iowa in 1969 playing a form of hard-edged, drug-induced rock'n'roll. Their album was recorded in a basement studio in 1971 and just 50 copies were pressed on the Dragon label. In 1972 they recorded some rough cuts for what was to be their second album, Meathook. Sadly the band fell apart before the album was completed but two of these previously unreleased tracks, Breakdown and Cat Black Claw, can now be heard on the Animus Ochlus retrospective album - which is not a straightforward reissue of Overdrive, as it omits some of the original material. Overdrive features some pretty fine and varied guitar work. The opening cut, Plea From The Soul, has lots of fuzz and mouth harp; Uncle Jerry and Rock n Roll Man feature breckneck guitar work whilst by contrast Whiskey Took My Woman is slower and bluesy. Recommended.
