Moonrakers - Together With Him. Released in 1969 on Shamely a subsidiary of Uni records.
Tracks are listed in comments thanks to a helpful person, and please read the comment I wrote right after that post.) This is an album I ripped to CD a few years back and I cannot find the paper I wrote the song titles down on. And this album ranks highly on list of favorites. A musical link between Iron Butterfly and Steppenwolf, if you can believe that (at least those are the 2 bands I hear comparisons to). Also a heavy Christian theme throughout.But at least there's some claims to fame from this album-some of these guys went on to form Sugarloaf.
Here's a cool link for more info (but no damn songtitles): www.moonrakers.us (also cool links to info about related bands and some cool radio spots.
When I was 10 or 11 years old, I found this album at a flea market in a fifty cent bin. Of course my brain was filled with Kiss and Deep Purple at the time so when I gave this a spin I couldn't really grab the vibe (although my friend and I used to put on the song "Kissy Face" and laugh our asses off). So I took this to the record store and traded it, probably for more Kiss or Peter Frampton stuff (God, I wish I had kept it!!!!!!). Years later, I knew I had to have it again and found it on CD with bonus tracks (the bonus tracks are just alternative mixes, but .....) . Now that I can appreciate this material, I just have to say this is one fabulous album. Great late 60's U.S. psych at it's best--the Maze Armageddom.
Minotaurus - Fly Away. 1977. More nice progressive stuff from Germany. Not really a fave but I figured some of you might enjoy this.
Electric Sandwich - 1972 self titled prog jazz from Germany. Great cover too!!!
Demon Thor - Written In the Sky 1974. Yet more prog jazz from Germany. Nice lenghty tracks and great musicians.
And finally back to the U.S. for 1971's Tripsichord Music Box. Their lone album is a little late in the game for this kind music, which is West Coast vibe stuff kinda like the Dead and (especially) Jefferson Airplane and a little Quicksilver thrown in for good measure. Fairly rare LP but I guess since it's time had passed before it got released it must have just slipped into the void. Nice psych well worth checking into, in my opinion.
I am still working on vinyl and will get the stuff I promised ASAP, except for the Space Rangers by Neil Merryweather which was just way too beat. I spent way too much on my new stylus to attempt anything really beat, but the rest is coming very soon.
Have fun and as always, enjoy!!!!!!
