    the Lovin' Spoonful ~ 1969 ~ Revelation: Revolution '69genre: pop, folk
    state: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 39:49 size: 277 mb

    Revelation: Revolution '69 is the final studio album by the group. It features Joe Butler as lead singer on most tracks, following the departure of former lead vocalist and songwriter John Sebastian. Almost all the songwriting for the album is divided fairly equally amongst three songwriting teams: Garry Bonner and Alan Gordon (notable for their earlier compositions for The Turtles); Ralph Dino and John Sembello; and producer Bob Finiz and Joe Butler. Butler also wrote one song on his own. The album also included "Never Going Back", which was written by John Stewart and had been released in 1968 as a single.
    The album was originally scheduled to be released with the title "Till I Run With You". First pressings of the album bear labels with this title, and the front cover (a naked woman running after a naked Joe Butler, with their genitals covered by a running lion, and the woman's breasts obscured by either a body suit or photo retouching) bears witness to the intended original title. The title track "Till I Run With You" was released as a single in advance of the album, but was a total flop, failing to even make the "Bubbling Under" charts; this may be the reason the album title was ultimately changed.

    Tommy James and the Shondells ~ 1967 ~ It's Only Lovegenre: bubblegum, pop
    state: us
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 60:56 size: 204 mb

    ... At first, Tommy James and His Shondells played straightforward rock and roll, but soon became involved in the budding bubblegum music movement. In early 1967 songwriter Ritchie Cordell gave them the No. 4 hit "I Think We're Alone Now" and the No. 10 hit "Mirage". In 1968, James had a No. 3 hit with "Mony Mony". Co-written by James, Cordell, Cordell's writing partner Bo Gentry, and Bobby Bloom, "Mony Mony" reached No. 3 in the US and was a British No. 1 in 1968. The title was inspired by a sign for Mutual Of New York that hung outside James' apartment window. He followed it with the song "Do Something to Me". However, James was labeled as a bubble-gum rock artist, which he hated. Therefore, he changed his style to psychedelic rock.
    From late 1968, the group began writing their own songs, with James and Lucia penning the psychedelic tinged classic "Crimson and Clover". The song was recorded and mixed by Bruce Staple, with James tackling vocal duties and playing all instruments, and featured the then unusual use of electronic gadgetry such as vocoders and phasers. The group had toured with Vice President Hubert Humphrey during his presidential campaign. Humphrey showed his appreciation by writing the liner notes for the Crimson and Clover album.

    Iron Butterfly ~ 1970b ~ Metamorthosisgenre: acid, psych, heavy
    state: us
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 40:48 size: 275 mb

    Fourth studio album by Iron Butterfly, released on August 13, 1970. Iron Butterfly's album METAMORPHOSIS, was the new line up with Mike Pinera on Guitar and Vocals and Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt on Guitar. Ron Busy on drums, Lee Dorman on Bass, Doug Ingle on vocals and Keyboards. Though it was not as successful as its predecessor Ball (1969), it reached number 16 on the US charts.. Erik Brann, who left because of band disputes, was replaced by four session guitarists. Two of them, Mike Pinera and Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt (called El Rhino on the sleeve), would become members of Iron Butterfly shortly after the album's release. Officially, the album is credited not to Iron Butterfly, but to "Iron Butterfly With Pinera & Rhino", in reference to the two aforementioned guitarists.
    The album spawned the single "Easy Rider (Let the Wind Pay the Way)," which reached number 66 on the Billboard chart,  making it the band's biggest hit aside from "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida". The album is noted for having one of the earliest uses of the Talk box on a rock album.
    Allmusic's Stephen Thomas Erlewine rated Metamorphosis three out of five stars. He explained that "the group continued its musical explorations, adding a layered production to its sound." He also stated that "[the] ambition [...] makes for an interesting listen."

    Illusion ~ 1979 ~ Enchanted Caressgenre: prog
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 46:44 size: 284 mb

    British band formed in 1977. They released two albums, Out of the Mist and Illusion on Island Records. Their music was classically inspired, sophisticated, and polished. The band undertook a number of tour dates but found their style of music out of fashion with the rise of punk rock and disbanded.
    Illusion were intended to be a reunion of the original line-up of Renaissance (whose second album was titled Illusion), but singer and guitarist Keith Relf died before the project was realised. Jim McCarty moved from drums to play acoustic guitar and share vocals with Jane Relf, while Eddie McNeill replaced him on drums and John Knightsbridge took Keith Relf's place as guitarist following his death.
    In 2001 the four core members issued Through The Fire, an album of new material under the name Renaissance Illusion, but did not play any concerts in support of the album.

    Randy Holden ~ 1969 ~ Population II + 1996 ~ Guitar Godgenre: heavy
    state: us
    quality: lossless (flac tracks, covers) 
    time: 79:02 size: 351 mb

    ... Frustrated with lack of control over the bands, Randy formed his next new band with drummer Chris Lockheed. Lockheed, also a keyboard player, uniquely played both drums and keyboard simultaneously in live performances. During this time Holden obtained a sponsorship deal with Sunn amplifiers. Through this he received his legendary sixteen 200 Watt amplifiers. His new band was dubbed "Randy Holden - Population II" which was a reference to the fact there were only two members in the band as well as being an astronomical term "Population II" that defines a special kind of Star Group cluster type, having Heavy Metal in its composition. An appropriate description for the original style of the music attributed to Holden's new band. The band recorded its only album, Population II (1969). Trouble with the release of the album led to Holden going bankrupt, losing all his equipment and his departure from music for over two decades. The album has been a much sought after collectors item over the years. After more than two decades he returned to his guitar, and began creating music again, reportedly by the continual urgings of a loyal fan. He recorded Guitar God in 1994 and released Guitar God 2001 in 2001, followed in 2008 with the release of "Raptor".
    In 2008 Richie Unterberger said "He's a good candidate for selection as the great unknown 1960s rock guitar hero. No other American guitarist was as skilled at creating the kind of sustain-heavy, snaky guitar lines pioneered by Jeff Beck in the Yardbirds. His recordings with the Fender IV, Sons of Adam, Ugly Things the The Other Half, Blue Cheer and as a solo artist don't only contain some feverishly innovative playing. They also chart the overall rainbow of changes undergone by California 1960s rock guitar as a whole, from surf to pseudo-Merseybeat to psychedelia, hard rock and heavy metal."

    Steve Hackett ~ 1978 ~ Please Don't Touchgenre: prog
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 54:29 size: 351 mb

    The second solo album by English guitarist Steve Hackett, and his first after leaving Genesis in 1977.
    The album featured several guests including R&B singer Randy Crawford on "Hoping Love Will Last", American folk icon Richie Havens on two songs, the drummer and vocalist for the progressive rock band Kansas (Phil Ehart and Steve Walsh respectively), Frank Zappa alumnus Tom Fowler, Genesis concert drummer Chester Thompson (also a Zappa alumnus), and Van der Graaf violinist Graham Smith.
    This was also Hackett's first album to feature his pioneering use of the Roland GR-500 Guitar Synthesizer.
    Hackett had previously released a solo album, Voyage of the Acolyte, while still a member of Genesis, but he was frustrated by the collaborative process of Genesis which left much of his creative work unreleased. He wrote a song, "Please Don't Touch", that Genesis rehearsed but ended up setting aside, partly because the other members of the band did not want to use it. He also wrote a second song, "Hoping Love Will Last", that he felt was appropriate only for a female singer, which was something that the band could not use. Eventually, the track Wot Gorilla? was decided on as the last track on the first side of Wind and Wuthering, and this decision sealed Hackett's decision on leaving Genesis. Hackett quit Genesis and began to record the album Please Don't Touch, using the rejected Genesis song as the title track.

    Little Feat ~ 1975 ~ The Last Record Albumgenre: southern , boogie
    state: us
    quality: lossless (wv, cue, log, covers) 
    time: 39:37 size: 229 mb

    Fifth studio album.
    Reviewing the album for Allmusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine writes of the album's tracks: "Those that succeed, however, are quite good, particularly Paul Barrere and Bill Payne's gently propulsive "All That You Dream," Lowell George's beautiful "Long Distance Love," and the sublime "Mercenary Territory." ... There are enough signs of Little Feat's true character on The Last Record Album -- the three previously mentioned songs are essential for any Feat fan -- to make it fairly enjoyable, but it's clear that the band is beginning to run out of steam."
    The back cover which listed the song's lyrics also included a listing/lyrics for the song "Hi Roller" which was marked out in black ink with the annotation "Maybe Next Time". The song was indeed included on their next album Time Loves a Hero.

    Arthur Lee ~ 1972 ~ Vindicatorgenre: heavy rhythm and blues, psych
    state: us

    time: 51:41 size: 360 mb

    ... In July 1972, Lee released his first solo album, Vindicator, on A&M Records, featuring a new group of musicians also playing as the band Love. At one point in time they would use the name Band-Aid, a name originally suggested by Jimi Hendrix for a briefly considered lineup of himself, Lee, and Steve Winwood. This album failed to chart. Lee recorded a second solo album in 1973 entitled Black Beauty for Buffalo Records, but the label folded before the album was released. Lee contributed the title track to the 1974 blaxploitation film Thomasine & Bushrod.
    Lee's next move was to credit the backing group for Black Beauty with the addition of guitarist John Sterling as a new Love for Reel to Real (1974). Once again, the album went nearly unnoticed.
    A new Lee solo album, called just Arthur Lee, appeared on Rhino Records in 1981, featuring covers of The Bobbettes' "Mr Lee" and Jimmy Cliff's "Many Rivers to Cross" and musicians Sterling on guitar, George Suranovich on drums and Kim Kesterson on bass as well as some of the members from "Reel to Real".
    Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, there were various attempts to reunite the original Love lineup. At the suggestion of guitarist John Sterling who first joined Arthur for Reel To Real, one such show from the Whisky in Oct. 1978 was recorded by Sterling on cassette. It featuring Lee and Bryan MacLean with Sterling on guitar, George Suranovich on drums and Kim Kesterson on bass, and was released on Rhino as a live album picture disc entitled Love Live (1980) on Rhino Records. In 1982, MCA released Studio/Live, which was a collection of tracks from the early 1970s incarnation of Love coordinated by rock lawyer/journalist Stann Findelle, including never before heard tracks recorded from Bill Graham's Fillmore East. ...

    The ninth studio album. It was released in November 1969 by Parlophone, their second album that year coming 6 months after an entire album of Bob Dylan covers. It was their first album of original compositions since the departure of Graham Nash and the second album by The Hollies to feature Terry Sylvester, on rhythm guitar and first to feature Terry Sylvester compositions as well as an instrumental composition by bassist Bernie Calvert. The U.S. version, titled "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", included the hit single by the same name, while omitting the tracks "Soldier's Dilemma" and "Marigold: Gloria Swansong". The UK album did not chart, but its U.S. version peaked at #32.
