How To Blow Your Mind and Have a Hookfoot party

Hello again,

Have 2 quite diverse elpees to share this evening. First up is Hookfoot's Roaring album, released in 1973 on A&M records (cat. # SP-4409). This was ripped in 320kbps directly from the vinyl album so a little surface noise will be present, but the LP was a really clean dj copy so it's fairly minimal. I serched the web for a pic of the cover and came up empty handed, but I did find a really cool (and small) Fin Costello photo to post of the band in action.

Here's the link to the tunage, which by the way is of the classic hardrock variety with a touch of southern rock added in a stylish way.

Lastly in the catagory of exploito-psych comes one of my fave LPs, by the Unfolding called, How To Blow Your Mind and Have A Freakout Party. Not much known about this one but as far as this kinda stuff goes, it is one the harder titles to find. It was released on the Audio Fidelity label in 1967.

This one was not ripped by me and is in 192kbps. Being as hard to find as it is, I was glad to get it at all!!

Thanks muchly for the Hookfoot. I urge all to try this piece of early 70s british take on US southern rock and then go out and look for their other LPs. When you find these other LPs please let us know as we can't find 'em!!
Thanks again, going to be playing this one a LOT!

Some Hookfoot (on cd) here,


Remember seeing them at college and I think I've got a copy of 'Good Times A Comin' stored away.

Funny thing is they were the support band and I can't remember who the main act was.

Nottingham, UK

Time Traveller - Get in touch - Roger Pope (drummer) is my partner I can tell you all you want to know.

Did you know that David Letterman recently asked Eric Clapton what it was like being the world's greatest guitarist and he said "I'm not Caleb Quaye is"
