    Uncle Dog ~ 1972 ~ Old Hatgenre: blues
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 35:53 size: 231 mb

    Tapestry of Delights:
    A short-lived rock group including Carol Grimes, who fronted Delivery in 1970 and also made solo recordings. John Pearson played drums on four of the tracks and John 'Rabbit' Bundrick, who was later with The Who, played piano on a couple of tracks. Most of the songs were penned by Dave Skinner, although there are a few covers, including Dylan's I'll Be Your Baby Tonight and Sam C. Phillips/Hermann Parker's Mystery Train. Carol Grimes' vocals are the most appealing thing about this album. 
    Guest musicians on the LP were Paul Kossoff, guitar on "We Got Time".
    John Porter became a producer and produced The Smiths and John Lee Hooker's comeback album in 1989. Mitchell played with Clancy and The Sandmen. Skinner also played in Clancy and 801 while Legendary Ace Drummer Terry Stannard formed the hit band Kokomo later.
    John Porter is a producer nowadays and produced The Smiths and John Lee Hooker's comeback album in 1989.

    Ultimate Spinach ~ 1968b ~ Behold and Seegenre: psych
    state: us
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 67:13 size: 373 mb

    Second Lp. More complex compositions, such as the suite in four movements "Genesis of Beauty" and "Fragmentary March of Green", two pieces soaked in mysticism, are included in the second album Behold And See (MGM, 1968). "Jazz Thing" and "Mind Flowers" experimented with even more unusual tempos and atmosphere, while "Gilded Lamp Of The Cosmos" exemplifies their psychedelic folk ballads.

    the Ugly Ducklings ~ 1966 ~ Somewhere Outsidegenre: garage
    state: canada
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 54:52 size: 256 mb

    Dreams Fantasies & Nightmares:
    Formed in the spring of 1965 as The Strolling Bones, a blatant Rolling Stones-inspired outfit featuring Brian Jones look-a-like, British-born Glyn Bell. After making its live debut at Cedarbrae High School in Toronto's Scarborough district (the entire band minus Boers studied there), the group changed name to The Ugly Ducklings and won a residency at Charlie Brown's Place. In late 1965, the band attracted the attention of Yorktown Records, who recorded the group's debut single, the Bingham-Mayne collaboration, Nothin' for a mere $300 on a 2-track machine at Hallmark Studios. The record was picked by local radio and became a local smash in March of the following year. On the back of the single's success, the 'Ducks landed their dream gig - opening for the Stones at Maple Leaf Gardens in June 1966.
    The group's debut album Somewhere Outside, recorded in New York and Toronto was issued around this time and contained all of the group's early singles. The opening cut, Nothin', was also their finest moment, with its snotty punk vocals and guitar assault. She Ain't No Use To Me was a punk shouter with some snappy guitar work, whilst That's Just A Thought I Had In My Mind is more restrained, veering more towards pop. Also of note on the album were Do What You Want, a mid-paced beat number; Just In Case You Wonder, which featured some good fuzz guitar; Hey Mama (Keep Your Big Mouth Shut), notable for some fine psychedelic guitar work; a snotty version of Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Any More, the only non-original and the closing cut, Windy City (Noise At The North End), an atmospheric instrumental complete with sound effects and more fuzz guitar. However, the label's decision to bring in producer Brian Ahern against the band's wishes, and its failure to distribute the 'Ducks records properly in the US led to the first of several personnel changes in early 1967. Read dropped out (later working in the photographic retail business) and was replaced by Howie Smith.

    UFO ~ 1970 ~ UFO Igenre: hard, rhythm and blues
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 39:03 size: 323 mb

    Tapestry of Delights:
    UFO formed in the Wood Green/Enfield area of North London in August 1969. They played a unique amalgam of underground/progressive pop, R&B and folk-rock in those early days, which was augmented by more power and a little blues when Andy Parker joined the line-up in place of their original drummer.
    In March 1970 they signed to the Beacon label and recorded UFO I in six evenings at Jackson Studios in Rickmansworth. It was produced by a South London car dealer on a four track machine and licensed all over the world. Nobody really noticed it at all in Britain but it sold quite well in Germany and Japan. More important, two 45s from the album were released in Japan and became hit singles; in fact, C'mon Everybody got to No 1. Amazingly the group, which was surviving on a hand-to-mouth sort of existence in Britain, was in demand to visit Japan. A tour was arranged for them to support Three Dog Night, but when the latter pulled out, UFO found themselves headlining the tour and leading the lifestyle of superstars. Their second album, Flying (One Hour Space Rock), will appeal to fans of the genre.
    When Mark Bolton left the band to quit the music business in January 1972, they got Larry Wallis in as a replacement. Wallis had earlier been with Shagrat and Blodwyn Pig. He wasn't with them long but taught them how to move around and dress up, important considerations in the glam rock era. By the time he left in October to join Pink Fairies, after a personality clash with Phil Mogg, the band had cultivated a distinct visual image, appearing on stage in snakeskin boots, tights, sequins, glitter, leather trousers, arm bands and so on.

    genre: rock, psych
    state: australia
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 53:06 size: 352 mb

    Dreams Fantasies & Nightmares:
    A Sydney-based band, although they originated from the Blue Mountain Region of New South Wales, who were once known as The Black Diamonds, a raucous garage / punk combo.
    Musically very versatile, they could handle material ranging from vibrant pop, raucous punk to progressive rock. They also performed under the name The Love Machine in 1968 to support a Pat Aulton-created single.
    Why?, the opening track on their album, can also be heard on Group Therapy. Along with Nuts, the album's best cut, it represented the hard psychedelic strand on their ambitious, wide-ranging album, which doesn't really gell. Other styles represented include country (Sweet Release, Joseph Straite, Home Song and Take Me Back), folk (Reflections), R'n'B (I Love, You Love), country-pop (Won't You Try) and a rambling keyboard/guitar progressive style eight minute attempted opus called Shake Off, which ranks as one of the album's best tracks but falls short of being stunning.

    Twice As Much ~ 1999 ~ Sittin' On A Fencegenre: psych pop
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 78:47 size: 433 mb

    Dave Skinner (born David Ferguson Skinner, 4 July 1946) and Andrew Rose (born Andrew Colin Campbell Rose, 12 March 1946, Edgware, Middlesex) were harmony singers who also wrote much of their own material.
    Andrew Loog Oldham signed these two ex-public schoolboys to his Immediate label in 1966. Their debut 45, Sittin' On The Fence, a Jagger/Richard song was a minor hit, but that was the nearest they got to success.
    The pair recorded four singles ("Sittin' on a Fence" b/w "Baby I Want You"; "Step Out of Line" / "Simplified"; "True Story" / "You're So Good For Me"; "Crystal Ball" / "Why Can't They All Go And Leave Me Alone") and two albums, Own Up and That's All (featuring Vashti Bunyan) between 1966 and 1968 for Immediate. Most of these recordings were pop in the Peter and Gordon/Chad and Jeremy mold, with light orchestral pop/rock arrangements, that sometimes employed a touch of the baroque.
    Their songs have been recorded by Del Shannon ("Life Is But Nothing", Easy to Say"), Chris Farlowe ("You're So Good For Me", Life Is But Nothing"), P. P. Arnold ("Everything Is Gonna be Alright", "You're So Good for Me", "Life Is But Nothing") and Nicky Scott ("Chain Reaction", "Everything Is Gonna be Alright").
    Their only UK Top 40 success as performers was a cover of the Mick Jagger's and Keith Richards' composition "Sittin' on a Fence" (1966). The Stones' version of the song, although recorded in December 1965, was not released on a Stones' album in the US until 1967 and not in the UK (where it again emerged as an album track) until 1969, and so was unknown at the time of the Twice as Much single.
    In 1972, Skinner joined Uncle Dog, a group including vocalist, Carol Grimes. He penned most of the tracks on their album, Old Hat. He was also a member of Clancy. In 1977/8, Skinner toured as the keyboard player with Roxy Music. He also contributed to albums by Phil Manzanera and Bryan Ferry.
