introduction needed. Nick Drake is, IMO, the greatest and most soulful
of all folk guitarists/songwriters. What's more, the words of his songs
are not merely lyrics: they are POETRY, great, introspective, fragile
poetry. His music has been my company for more than ten years; yet,
every time I listen to his songs, I feel like it's the first time.
There isn't even a single song by Nick Drake that I don't like. All of
them are perfect...
I bought this album after I had
collected all his official releases. It contains songs which he
recorded at home (hence the bad so... Read more »

I was happy to see the Colwell-Winfield Blues Band included on a Bosstown Sound sampler because I thought they were forgotten and maybe would not be invited to the party because they were not playing rock. They were definately part of the scene. A lot of us rockers were finding the blues during this period. One of my most thrilling musical experiences was seeing BB King at the Boston Tea Party. I vaguely knew Clapton drew from him. BB's quitar playing opened up a whole new world to me and that night the audience reacted to every bend and trill. I always thoug... Read more »
Neil Percival Young (born November 12, 1945, Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician and film director.
Young's work is characterized by deeply personal lyrics, distinctive guitar work, and signature nasal tenor singing voice. Although he accompanies himself on several different instruments—including piano and harmonica—his style of claw-hammer acoustic guitar and often idiosyncratic soloing on electric guitar are the linchpins of a sometimes ragged, sometimes polished sound. Although Young has experimented widely with differing music styles, including swing, jazz, rockabilly, blues, and electronic music throughout a varied career, his best known work usually falls into either of t...

Another record that remains undiscovered and is stuck in the wishlists of several collectors for a long time. No information available about this band, just unconfirmed relations with a couple New Mexico bands (Hooterville Trolley and Xit). Released in 1970 on Uni Records (which released also the Strawberry Alarm Clock, Druids of Stonehedge, Alexander's Timeless Bloozband, and American Blues, along with R'n'B, Neil Diamond and Elton John records), this came out in a nice gatefold sleeve (like many albums from this label).
If Magic Sand reissued today would be labeled as Xsian Blues/Psych and this would be 2/3 true (all reissues had to be labeled psych though...). In the 11 tracks of the album there are 7 blues or rhythm'n'blues numbers (some of them standards with altered lyrics), an instrumental played with fiddle which must be a traditional Irish or Scottish dance ("Magic Sand"), two folk/country tracks with nice banjo, and an exploito psychedelic track ("Get Ready To Fly"). "I Take What I Want" is a tight r'n'b with an exceptional drum part, complete with female vocals, "Bab... Read more »
Far East Family Band (Japan) - 1974 - "The Cave" Down To The Earth
Tracks : 1. Northern Land 2. Birds Flying To the Nest 3. The God Of Water 4. Saying to the Land 5. The God Of Wind 6. Moving, Looking, Trying, Jumping 7. Wa, Wa 8. Mystery of Northern Space 9. The Cave Down To Earth 10. Four Minds 11. Transmigration
A bit of
classic rock, a bit of prog, a hint of psychedelia, a spirited whiff of
punk, and a whole lotta rock 'n' roll.
CD, called 'Teenage Folklore' and showcasing the
band's love of pure pop, punk, glam- and prog-rock and the combination
thereof, along with the confidence to get fancy with them, is pretty
impressive for a debut release. Guitar, drum loops, percussion,
keyboards, drums, bass, pretty harmonies, etc., merge smoothly, and
over the course of the album, the band repeatedly pulls out engaging
ideas. Kudos, again, to Mike Martin at the Broom Factory for an
excellent recording job; 'Teenage Folklore' sounds incredible." -

Rocket Park is a band that
sticks out like a sore thumb in any crowd. While other bands carefully
strive for genre purity and aesthetic homogeneity, Rocket Park revels
in all its messy contradictions. Bassist Dave Harris whips up the c... Read more »

Here's what Vernon Joynnson sais in "Tapestry of Delights" :
Noel Redding (real name David
Redding) was born on Christmas Day 1945. He first came into the public
eye when he joined The Jimi Hendrix Experience in September 1966 on
bass. At the time he was in a mid-sixties band called The Loving Kind.
He played with Lord Sutch and His Heavy Friends in the early seventies
and also with Fat Mattress before forming Road, a UK-US three-piece.

was composed of characters (sometimes as many as 20 at once) from some
of the greatest of the Quebec prog bands, including the Franck
Dervieux, Contraction, Toubabou, and Harmonium school (Seguin,
Laferriere, etc...). One part excellent instrumental prog, one part
big-band rock. Occasionally cheesy but often fantastic.
wasn't actually sure where to classify this. Most tracks are in the
Northern Soul vein, yet personnel hails from other genres.
of Ritchie Blackmore would probably know this album. It was recorded in
1970 in De Lane Lea studios, London, and it allegedly began as a
session jam. Ritchie Blackmore, Albert Lee, Big Jim Sullivan & Tony
Ashton are among the musicians. It was produced by Derek Lawrence and
engineered by Martin Birch. The tracks are mostly in the Northern Soul
style, as I mention above, and production quality is fairly good. The
musicians are in a loose form and Blackmore doesn't really sound very
decent, since he manages to overindulge in those fast-and-tedious riff... Read more »
'Manassas' is the 1972 debut double album from Stephen Stills' band of the same name. The album peaked at #4 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart. "It Doesn't Matter" was released as a single and peaked at #61. Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones plays bass on and co-authored "The Love Gangster." Stills considers the album to be among his best work. It is perhaps the most highly regarded of Stills' solo albums... Read more »
