Diversity is the spice of life.........

These were requests for people over at groovy fab. I decided to put them over here too. Kathy & Carol was a rare barely released LP on Elektra records back in '65 until the good folks at Collector's Choice released it. It bombed too, but I found a copy at my library (they come up with this but try to find Joe Walsh or Bob Dylan there) and ripped a copy. It's just Kathy, Carol and an acoustic guitar on most tracks (on the others its Kathy and Carol without guitar). I detect a bit of celtic influence here but what do I know. I am no expert on folk. I will say these girls sing much better than Dave Van Ronk.........

From 1973 here is Cleveland Ohio's own Granicus. This is their only LP and it's Led Zepish hard rock. In fact the singer sounds quite a bit like Bob Plant from time to time (also sounds a bit like Dave King from Fastway too, but Dave was probably going for Plant too). But this is hard for '73, bluesy and soulful too. This was recorded from vinyl by a friend a long time ago and is a single file.

Songs: You're in America/Bad Talk/TwilightPrayer/Cleveland, Ohio/Nightmare/When You're Movin'/Paradise.

I also uploaded the Ram Jam albums too, but they ended up over at Zinhof's so if you want it, go to get it there.

I don't have a clue what to put up here next, anyone up for the Grease 2 soundtrack? How about Engelbert Humperdinck? Heino? Mrs. Miller? anyone? anyone? hello?

Well personally I'd like to see a very obscure '80s prog band called 'Omega', no, not the Eastern European one! But an English band who released only one lp as far as I know: 'The Prophet' on Rock Machine in 1985. I remember side one being an absolute classic...

Blackwater Park - Black box is one I'm curious to hear ...

Do you, by any chance, have Enoch Light's "Provocative Percussion" (vols 1-3)? ... or how 'bout a band called "The Hook"; their only LP was "Will Grab You" (1968). I remember doing a tune called "Son of Fantasy" with my first rock band...

Time Traveller said...

Anon - I have actually heard of the Omega album, but do not have it.

Danny - Blackwater Park is on a blog somewhere I think, and I think it's called Dirt Box not Black box.I will check it out, if not I will post it. Check back here later today.

bongolong - check a blog called Planet Xtabay for the Enoch stuff, they may not those specifically, but I bet they might have something you want. The Hook actually had 2 LPs, Will Grab You and Hooked. I have WGY that I got from Chrisgoesrock (it upgraded my scratched up album) so it may still be up there, I will check that one out too.

Hi, Iam looking for the Woody Kern album, maybe you could help? Also Methuselah would be fine and the fourth LP of IF (also called Waterfall)+ any good progressive jazz rock albums. Hope you can halp!
Thanx for the great music btw.
Best,
Wojtek

K&C may sing better than Dave but the one time I was fortunate enough to catch him live he DID manage to bring tears to my eyes with at least one song (forget which one---I was probably quite drunk--it was late 70's in a Woodstock NY bar...)

Would love to hear some Englebert. Now there's a man who could really sing!!!!

sorry, Dirt Box, of course ...

Do you have any atlantis? Inga Rumph is great. How about leaf hound. Maybe some jim neighbors?
thanks maybe i'll find something to send ya. thanks Bruce

Time Traveller said...

Wojtec - I've got some stuff I will post in the next few of the jazz prog variety. Don't know about the specific one's you requested.

Secretly ATW - I've a great Van Ronk album with the Hudson Dusters and he does an early version of Joni Mitchell's Clouds (which became Both Sides Now for Judy Collins) that is VERY moving. I have to rip it but I'll stick up here sometime soon. If I post any Engelbert (I'm not sure if I even have any, it just rolled off the top of my head) I'll post it over at groovyfab.

Danny - working on Blackwater now for you.

Bruce - I can do Atlantis for you (I've 2 or 3), I agree about Inga, I used to have a solo LP she did and I got rid of it, damn me. Leaf Hound has just been posted on a blog somewhere (I'll see if can get any details) and sorry I'm all out of Jim Nabors, I used to have the Shazam! (Gomer Pyle) LP but I also got rid of that.

Heino! Heino! Heino!

Danke!

ps Is there anywhere that people are posting about this bizarre situation with Hanszun?

Time Traveller said...

I was jokin' bout Heino. I may have an old album but I don't think it would fit in here.


About Hans, I don't think he wants any hoopla about this situation, he wants it over with. Look around and you just might find him again.

Thank you for all the amon duul! A completely underated band. It is a shame.

And thank you for putting up so many new things i have never heard before!

Since you field for a few suggestions i thought i pitch a few:
John foxx- metamatic or the pleasures of electricity.

Some late seventies hawkwind(thanks for the quark one) warriors on the edge of time, early 80's hawkwind (chronicles of the black sword).

Ivor cutler? He's quite funny!

Tally on!

One Bite said...

Do you have two Curt Boettcher related albums,
1.Friar Tuck And His Psychedelic Guitar (I Think it`s Session Man Mike Deasy 1967)
2. Song - Song (1970)
Thanks in advance

Time Traveller said...

I'm doing some more Hawkwind, the one you are looking for is posted on musicforthenations.blog I belive, but I have tons of the Hawk.


one bite--I do have the Friar Tuck Lp, an old rip from fair condition vinyl, but I will up it tonight.
