Small post today, but I am working on an idea........



Astral Projection - the Astral Scene
This was a request over at lost and found albums blog and I thought it might have some interest here. Really, it seems to me to be an exploito type deal, but definitely walks a fine line between psych and exotica-lounge type recordings. But it still gets listed as psych in places so for your listening enjoyment, here it is, and I recommend using extreme caution if driving or operating any machines while listening because this may cause drowsiness. Originally released on Metromedia in 1968, this is from a Gear Fab reissue.

the Tiffany Shade - same

I am not going to say much about this very hard to find LP released on Mainstream records in 1968 (S-6105). The band was comprised of Michael Barnes on guitar and lead vocals, Bob Leonard (who is listed only as songwriter), Tom Schuster on drums and Rob Murphy on bass. It is bubblegummy pop psych and not at all what I expected for an album of it's reputation. Some people give it 2 thumbs up and I've seen it called brilliant so I'll let you folks decide. Standouts (to me) are the leadoff track "Would You Take My Mind Out For A Walk (great title!!), "No Reality" and "Not Worth the Pain".

Now, here is my idea, but I would like some feedback before I go ahead with it. I have a huge want list of around 1,000 or so items that I am looking for. Some are not that hard to find(I am trying to replace a rather large chunk of my CDs that were stolen during a move a few months ago) and some are damn near impossible to find. I am putting together a text file with the want list and my idea is, I would be willing to trade for items from my huge of available titles (I believe it numbers around 8,000 titles at this point) many of which I won't post here due to my own set restrictions on the items being out of print (or only available on expensive imports). If there is interest in it, I will go more into detail on it tomorrow, but if there is little interest I will abandon the idea. In either case I will still be posting albums here, it's just a way I figure that I can help people out and people could help me also. Any improvements on the idea or criticisms are welcome.

Always willing to make trades. Have a pretty extensive collection and would be love to work out a trade.

Only question: are you talking MP3 Shares or CDRs?

Gnome

I'd be interested! Same question as Gnome - MP3, CDR, FLAC?

Hey guys, glad to see a bit of interest already. Well, I'm still working on that part (means of trade). Iguess that could be left up to the 2 people trading, but what I had in mind when it first came up was private link trading, but that could be a lenghty proposition if the trading got hot and heavy (damn those slow uploads). I have the means to do trades by mail (CD-r) or the aforementioned rapidshare deal. I'm still kinda new and not up to date on the flac sharing. Isn't that no loss format they use on bit torrent or am I wrong?

I am still putting both of lists together so it would be a couple days til I can get started but if both of you let me your prefs I'm sure we can work out something. Please get back to me!!

Oh, and one thing I haven't gotten around to yet, but any lists I make will be in txt format and I would need to receive them in that format also, because I decided to go back into the dark ages and delete my quattro and works so I'd have more room for downloads....

Silly, isn't I?

Well, I've been trading for years, but only hard to find stuff, mostly prog in all its variants ...

I am for it.

Time Traveller said...

Looks like we have a going proposition. I am getting the lists together as I speak, it will probably take until late Friday or Saturday because I have been typing like a mad dog and I gotta take breaks. More details today, when I post my a few albums for you to enjoy.

I've been to your blog and you have some amazing stuff!! I only hope I have some stuff you need.
Same with the Riff man, I know the kind stuff you have!! And can't wait to see the goodies the rest of you have!


Looking forward to trying this out so I will post the details later on Friday. Making these lists is giving me carpel tunnel syndrome.
