Here's some more stuff for ya!

Was kind of bored today so I decided to upload a bunch stuff and stick it up here for everyone's listening pleasure. Enjoy. All but Alrune Rod and Atomic Rooster are ripped from vinyl, but most are taken from extremely clean albums and sound great. All ripped at 256 except Circus Maximus ripped at 320.



Fever Tree - Another Time Another Place. Californian hard rock/psych released on the Uni label. Some great somes here, Fever, Death Is The Dancer and I've Never Seen Evergreen spring to mind as favorites.

Sweet first album from Jerry Jeff Walker and his 60's psych band Circus Maximus. Nice stinging fuzz guitar on some cuts and others are more laid back and introspective. Good stuff on both ends of the spectrum, but my fave cut is the closer, Wind, a mellow cut, but yet has lots going on in the grooves. Nice vocal dynamics on the track People's Games. Released in '67 on the Vanguard label, which released a lot of great psych between '67 and '70.

Found this in a thrift store a year or so ago and was pleasantly surprised. Released in 1970 on the Liberty label, it is a trippy LP, folky at times, and hard at times, with a 16 year old vocalist named Lydia Miller who is almost a dead ringer for Janis Joplin in the song Understand (which she also wrote). She does other styles here too. Some songs on this album also features male-female counterpont vocals along with long instrumental passages. Stoned Cowboy is a great song also. Whatever happened to these guys? Highly talented band that disappeared after this one slab o' wax.

Great prog from these guys who need no introduction to anyone who is a fan of hard prog. This is ripped from the out of print One Way CD, and is their 1972 LP Made in England. Fantastic album. Not really a bad track in the bunch from this great band led by keyboard wiz Vincent Crane.

I saw a live album from 1974 by Alrune Rod on another blog and decided to stick the debut LP from 1969 up here for those who liked it. Interesting stuff from these Norweigan proggers. I had mistakenly called them Italian progressive and a reader pointed out my error.

Couldn't find a picture of this one, but it's some decent sunshine pop/psych from Procession. Released in 1969 on the Smash label. A spotty LP but worth it for the opener You-Me, Take Time and Mind Magician, but some of the tracks get uncomfortably close to lounge on this often too laid back album. Nice one for a lazy Sunday afternoon, I guess.
