Randy Holden's first band & more (plus some shares from a friend)

Here is Randy Holden's first band...the Other Half. Although this album doesn't include their best known track (Mr. Pharmacist) it has a lot of similar garage-psych tunes. It was released on Acta records (#38004) in 1968. The album liners tell us that the band always records with their amps turned all the way up and that everyone should listen to the album at least once at FULL VOLUME. I think you should listen to everything that way, but that's just me. What?

Finally before a nice added surprise, here is the 1969 lone Lp from the US band Cykle. The LP was released on their own Label, ingeniously called Label (#9-261) . Not much is known about these guys, but it's one I will leave up to you to decide wheather or not it's a keeper.

I already killed it, but it's no biggie, plenty more stuff to put up. I only had one or two downloads of it anyway.

The Cyrkle album seems to be missing the first seven tracks.

It would be very gratefully accepted if you can locate and post them.

Thanks!

Hello,

It's not missing the first eight, it was on a CD with another non group and the tracks started at 8. I didn't change them so track is actually track 1 and so on.

Time Traveller said...

That should say non related group.

Thaks for the reply, Time Traveller.

Very sorry for the complaint, I just wasn't expecting the old "Other Band Sharing The Release Used The First Seven Tracks" trick.

The blighters are too cunning, I tell ya!

Thank you also for posting Nektar, who I have most of on LP. Always a wonderful listen...

I remember hearing when Cyrkle first emerged that the unusual spelling was thanks to John Lennon. That gave them the notice they needed to get their music noticed.

Okay, I'm an idiot. Can you explain what to do with the password? The links take me to a website where it allows a 'free' download if you wait a while, and then a premium download, but I don't seem to see a place to put a password. Perhaps I'm too old, but if someone could point me in the right direction, I'd be quite appreciative. Thanks.
