    the Yardbirds ~ 1965a ~ For Your Lovegenre: rhythm and blues
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 64:24 size: 224 mb

    For Your Love is debut studio album by English blues rock band The Yardbirds. Released in June 1965, the album is a mix of US-only tracks and previously released singles compiled by Yardbirds' producer, Giorgio Gomelsky. The album, which was released as the Yardbirds were preparing for their first American tour, reached number 96 in Billboard's Top LPs chart.
    For Your Love features three songs from Jeff Beck's first recording sessions with the Yardbirds: "I'm Not Talking", "I Ain't Done Wrong", and "My Girl Sloopy" (these songs were later released in the UK on the Five Yardbirds EP). Eric Clapton provided the guitar for the remainder of the tracks, which included the three Yardbirds singles (with B-sides) released up to that time and two demos which were not released in the UK until the 1980s (see discography for singles information). Clapton, who had left the band four months earlier, is not pictured on the album cover nor mentioned in the liner notes.

    the Yankee Dollar ~ 1968 ~ The Yankee Dollargenre: west coast psych
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 37:21 size: 251 mb

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    This group formed at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, California. Their album is a delightful potpourri of West Coast-sounding flower-power and psychedelia with lots of fuzz guitar. There are some superb cover versions of Donovan's Catch The Wind, Dylan's The Times, They Are A-Changin' and Dino Valente's Let's Get Together, which are every bit as good as the originals, interspersed with some excellent self-penned material like Follow Your Dream's Way and Johann Sebastian Cheetah.
    Two tracks on the album, City Sidewalks, Sanctuary and Good Ole Friends were written by Carter-Gilbert (John and Tim), the creative source behind Denver's Rainy Daze, and curiously, these were also recorded by Hardwater, in the same year.
    Another notable feature of the album is beautiful Jefferson Airplane-like male - female layered harmonies. Recommended. ~ (Vernon Joynson / Max Waller)

    Xhol Caravan ~ 1969 ~ Electripgenre: kraut
    state: germany
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 39:35 size: 284 mb

    Crack in the Cosmic Egg:
    The history of Xhol is not that well documented. Though we do know that they originated in the mid-1960's as Soul Caravan, changing name in late-1968 to Xhol Caravan after playing at the Essener Songtage. This new name heralded a more progressive blend of new ideas, and the developing their sound with a big conceptual opus now documented on disc 1 of the MOTHERFUCKERS LIVE set.
    Still finding their feet, and moving on Xhol Caravan debuted with a single in the vein of SHADES OF DEEP PURPLE, still soul-edged but much more progressive. Though, it never hinted at all at the album that was to follow a few months later. ELECTRIP was one hell of a remarkable album, especially for the 1960's, an electric saxophone and organ fronted fusion (kind of classic "Uncle Meat" jamming Zappa territory) with a great deal of invention and energy, hinting at later records by Nosferatu, Faust, et al. It is also full of surprises and unlikely diversions, dazzling studio trickery and humour amongst its features. Remarkable throughout!
    Whether they existed much beyond this, we don't know. We do know that the band name led to some confusion, and the name was shortened to just Xhol. The latest recording we knew of, dated from July 1970, and that's the "posthumously issued" live album HAU-RUK, which continues from ELECTRIP on a more esoteric level, overtly trippy in feel with one lengthy improvisation per side, the cosmic Annexus Quam like "Breit" and the psychedelic blues "Schaukel" with its X-rated variation on "Rock Me Baby". Confusingly MOTHERFUCKERS GMBH & CO KG proclaimed on the cover to be "2 years old" placing it in-between ELECTRIP and HAU-RUK. Obviously a collection of archive recordings: a few snippets of Soul Caravan can be heard in the opening "Radio" as well as a short slice of ELECTRIP, a Faust-like opening to a very varied album, with its superb lengthy organ piece "Orgelsolo", spaced-out flute lead instrumentals and a lengthy psychedelic blues number "Love Potion 25". A superb epitaph.

    Robert Wyatt ~ 1974 ~ Rock Bottomgenre: avant, canterbury
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 39:35 size: 214 mb

    The second solo album by former Soft Machine drummer Robert Wyatt. It was released on 26 July 1974 by Virgin Records. Although Rock Bottom is technically Wyatt's second solo LP, he has stated in several interviews that he considers its predecessor The End of an Ear as juvenilia and not part of the recognised "canon" of Wyatt solo records. The album was produced by Pink Floyd's drummer Nick Mason.
    The band Matching Mole disbanded soon after the release of Little Red Record in 1972, and Wyatt began composing the material that later appeared on Rock Bottom. The album's preparation was interrupted by an accident on the night of 1 June 1973. During a raucous party, at Vale Court, Hall Road, Maida Vale in London, an inebriated Wyatt fell from a third-floor bathroom window and was paralysed from the waist down. Wyatt has used a wheelchair ever since. He later called the event the beginning of his maturity and in hospital he continued to work on the songs that would appear on Rock Bottom "in a trance." "I was just relieved that I could do something from a wheelchair," Wyatt confesses. "If anything, being a paraplegic helped me with the music because being in hospital left me free to dream, and to really think through the music."
    Within six months he was back at work in the recording studio and appeared on stage at London's Rainbow Theatre with Pink Floyd and Soft Machine, who lent financial support by playing a benefit concert for him. Although the music itself is intense and often harrowing, and the lyrics to the songs are dense and obviously deeply personal, Wyatt has denied that the material was a direct result of the accident and the long period of recuperation. Indeed, much of the album had been written while in Venice in early 1973 prior to Wyatt's accident, where his partner and future wife (the poet Alfreda Benge) was working as an assistant editor on Nicolas Roeg's film Don't Look Now.

    Wurtemberg ~ 1980 ~ Rock Fantasia Opus 9genre: sympho prog folk
    state: france
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 37:49 size: 267 mb

    Wurtemberg is the musical project of instrument-maker Alain Carbonare. If you don't know this name, he is best known internationally for the making and playing of his own "traditional" style instruments, the dulcimer, psaltery, lyre, among others. The group places a heavy emphasis on sophisticated arrangements, as nice parts on acoustic guitar and authentic medieval stringed instruments.
    The music on "Rock Fantasia Opus 9", only cd of this French band, is totally instrumental fusing classical, renaissance music, French folk and progressive rock. The music is calm and breezy, with a lot of air between the strings and piano. For fans of bands such as Clearlight, Gryphon, early After Crying, Malicorne, and Minimum Vital. An essential addition to any collection of French symphonic music. Good stuff, so don't miss it!
