    Rumplestiltskin ~ 1970 ~ Rumplestiltskingenre: heavy
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 286 mb)
    time: 56'13"

    In 1970, Flowers / Cattini / Parker and Hawkshaw as well as singer Peter Lee Stirling, were the nucleus of an outfit working as Hungry Wolf who cut there now sought-after eponymous album for Philips. The same year Rumplestiltskin's first album was released on the Bell label.
    Shel Talmy, the producer of the Who and the Kinks , has this to say:  “I produced a band called “Rumpelstiltskin”, which was a put-together band of very good session guys, and we almost made it with that one.  We had a whole concept.  We were going to do a comic strip and all kinds of stuff.  It was really a fun thing. And good songs, great music, ’cause these guys really could play. That went on Bell Records, [who] just totally screwed the whole thing up.
    It was really unfortunate.  We made two albums that I was very pleased with; that I think should have made it.”

    Ruben And The Jets ~ 1973 ~ For Real!genre: doo-wop, rock'n'roll
    state: us
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers, 337 mb)
    time: 56'13"

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    In 1972, Frank Zappa decided to renew his explorations of the fifties/early sixties music, which he had already begun with his Ruben And The Jets album in 1968. This time it was "for real" and he assembled a group to re-use the name. It's an interesting complement for Zappa fans, as Sherwood, Camarena, Duran and De Guevara all played with Zappa at various times and the two covers were designed by Cal Schenkel.
    The musc is really enjoyable and, if its roots are clearly in the doo-wop and rock and roll styles, the pedigrees of the musicians ensure the listener to hear some excellent guitar parts, good vocals and funny lyrics (Low Ridin Cruiser, Cruisin Down Broadway, All Nite Long).
    Zappa produced and arranged the first album, Denny Randell the second. ~ (Stephane Rebeschini)

    Royal Servants ~ 1971 ~ Wegenre: rock, psych
    state: germany
    quality: lossless (wv, cue, log, covers, 462 mb)
    time: 56'13"

    Crack in the Cosmic Egg:
    Originating from Reichenbach (near Stuttgart) as a school band called the Sounders in 1964, they became the Royal Servants in late-1965 with a repertoire of The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Kinks, and such-like. Over the years, up to recording their debut LP, numerous members came and went, until the only original member was Matthias "James" Thurow. Detlev Nottrodt had joined from The Hardships meanwhile, and virtually took-over the band, credited with penning all their 1970 material.
    A patchy affair, WE opened on a jazzy psychedelic footing, with a very English sound almost certainly inspired by the likes of Traffic, Colloseum and Blodwyn Pig. Thereafter, we have two lengthy (largely instrumental) tracks and a few short pop numbers, with the title track freaking-out close to Xhol or Nosferatu, and the big opus "Latin Underground" adding a Santana edge and the excuse for lots of winding solos. These 26 minutes of quality material make it well worth a listen, setting aside the questionable English lyrics.
    After a change of direction, and deciding to sing in German instead, four members (Detlev Nottrodt, James Thurow, Ronnie Libal and Günter Klinger) went on to become the nucleus of the legendary Eulenspygel.

    the Royal Guardsmen ~ 1995 ~ Anthologygenre: beat, pop
    state: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 314 mb)
    time: 59'21"

    Originally known as the Posmen, the Ocala, Florida-based sextet adopted their anglophile moniker during the British Invasion, led by The Beatles and other British artists. The group was originally composed of Bill Balough (bass), John Burdett (drums), Chris Nunley (vocals), Tom Richards (guitar), Billy Taylor (organ), and Barry Winslow (vocals/guitar).
    The Guardsmen's first single, "Baby Let's Wait", failed to make the charts, but their second offering, "Snoopy vs. the Red Baron", reached #2 in the Billboard Hot 100, remained in the bestsellers for 12 weeks, and was certified gold by the RIAA in February 1967.
    The original group split in 1969, but a band with some replacement players continued for another year. Tom Richards died in 1979 and Pat Waddell became lead guitarist. Waddell with several former bands throughout Central Florida got his start as Bass guitar with a local Ocala garage band, with Corey Richards, (younger brother of Tom Richards of the Guardsmen) (lead vocals), Harold Rankin, (Rhythm guitar), Mike Driver, (Lead Guitar), Terry Walters, (Drums)
    The Royal Guardsmen made a comeback in December 2006, when they released a new Snoopy song, "Snoopy vs. Osama", which became a hit on The Dr. Demento Show. Rick Cosner has been the alternate drummer since 2006, substituting for John Burdett as needed. The current band performs regularly around the United States.

    the Rose Garden ~ 1968 ~ the Rose Gardengenre: folk
    state: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 177 mb)
    time: 30'01"

    American folk rock band from Los Angeles, California which was active in 1967 and 1968. They are most remember for their hit single "Next Flight To London".
    The band formed from a band known as The Blokes which was founded in 1964 and would cover much of The Byrds work in its later years. By 1967, the group's full lineup was complete and they became known as The Rose Garden. The members were Diana DeRose (who originally was from Parkersburg, West Virginia) on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, John Noreen on 12-string guitar and backup vocal, James Groshong on lead vocal and guitar, William Fleming on bass and Bruce Bowdin on drums.
    Diana DeRose graduated from Parkersburg High School in Parkersburg, West Virginia, in 1964 before she joined The Rose Garden.
    In the year 1967, they signed with Atco Records and had enjoyed a hit record with "Next Plane To London" which reached #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at the end of that year. They released their eponymous album in April 1968, which included the hit song. Subsequent releases were unsuccessful, and dissension within the group led to its break-up by the end of 1968.

    the Rolling Stones ~ 1965c ~ December's Children (& Everybody's)genre: rhythm'n'blues, rock'n'roll
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 161 mb)
    time: 29'04"

    Drawn largely from two days of sessions recorded in September to finish the British edition of Out of Our Heads and to record their new single—"Get Off of My Cloud"—December's Children (And Everybody's) also included tracks recorded as early as 1963.
    Half of the songs appearing on the album were written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, as they penned strong album cuts like "I'm Free" and "The Singer Not the Song" as well as such major hits as "As Tears Go By" and "Get off of My Cloud".
    December's Children (And Everybody's) reached No. 4 in the US and went gold. Bassist Bill Wyman quotes Jagger in 1968 calling the record "[not] an album, it's just a collection of songs."

    the Rockets ~ 1968 ~ the Rocketsgenre: blues, folk, psych
    state: us
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers, 170 mb)
    time: 28'57"

    Fuzz Acid & Flowes:
    The Rockets are in fact the first version of Crazy Horse, the "classic" backing-group of Neil Young. From California, they managed to get a record deal in 1968 with White Whale, the Turtles label. Produced by Barry Goldberg (who knew Notkoff from the recording of the Electric Flag's The Trip), their only album is a now minor collectable. All the tracks on the first side were composed by Danny Whitten (except a Talbot /Molina song) and the second side was written entirely by the Whitsell brothers.
    A mix of rock and West Coast vibes, the best tracks are probably Hole In My Pocket (later used by Goldberg for one of his solo albums), Pills Blues and Let Me Go. The vocals are not always outstanding but the guitar and electric violin parts are good. The lyrics of Pills Blues are quite explicit about their habits...
    In 1969, Whitten, Talbot and Molina met Neil Young, began playing with him and became Crazy Horse. Everybody Know This Is Nowhere, the first album they recorded with Young contains the superb Running Dry (Requiem for the Rockets) with Notkoff's haunting violin. Crazy Horse, their first "solo"album, with Cooder, Lofgren and Nitzsche, is excellent too. Whitten died of an heroin overdose in 1972 and the following Crazy Horse albums are best avoided. ~ (Stephane Rebeschini/Ed Worcester)

    Rockadrome ~ 1969 ~ Royal American 20th Century Bluesgenre: heavy psych
    state: canada
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 232 mb)
    time: 34'55"

    Dreams Fantasies & Nightmares:
    This Toronto, Ontario, band's album is one of the rarest to come out of Canada. Musically, it's a mixture of psychedelia, blues and rock. Some tracks like Inside Out, Inside In and Royal American Twentieth Century Blues Reprise sound strongly influenced by The Beatles circa Sergeant Pepper and Magical Mystery Tour. There's some nice guitar work on Thirteen Miles Down and a nice chimey intro to Good Dream. The remaining tracks are frankly rather ordinary. There was a repress in the late eighties, buy this before forking out for an original.

    the Rising Storm ~ 1967 ~ Calm Beforegenre: rock, psych
    state: us
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers, 391 mb)
    time: 1:17'02"

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    The album contains fine versions of hard-rockers Don't Look Back, In The Midnight Hour and Baby Please Don't Go, alongside Arthur Lee's A Message To Pretty and a number of self-penned compositions, such as the driving I'm Comin Home and slow, sensitive numbers like Frozen Laughter and The Rain Falls Down.
    Alive Again At Andover was a reunion concert recording and is surprisingly good. Brought back together for the 15th Reunion of Andovers' Class of '67 ten of their gymnasium gig numbers are captured plus a version of Baby Please Don't Go from their first reunion stint at the Flowermarket Cafe, Boston in October '81. The original line-up is intact bar Todd Cohen whose place is filled by the ubiquitous Andy Paley. Unlike other reunion LPs which cash in on past glories this one stands up well on its own and, although these guys had done nothing in the music sphere since graduation, the spirit and fun of those heady days is reincarnated.
