More requests and more other stuff
Wow, the old visitor counter is past 400,000!!! Either a lot of folks have stopped by or a few of you have stopped by way too many times. Either way, thanks for checking out my little corner of blogdom. Today is all requests (at least from me, there is another Urchin sent from Desultory at the end).
A late one for this style of music (1971) this one sounds like kind of Doorsy (early Doors) but more backwoods style psych and the album goes for megabucks. Pretty good stuff if you dig the rural psych genre.
And here's some covers I forgot to put in the rar
If you like Gentle Giant you'll like these guys. Lotsa Ian Anderson style flute tooting over some GGish melodies. One I find myself digging out quite a bit because it's a really strong album!
This is the first Hawkwind album I ever bought myself when i was about 12 years old. My favorite song on here is Kings of Speed and now that I know what a speedfreak Lemmy confessed to being the song takes on a whole new meaning. But there is not a bad track on this album from 1975 which features a bonus track, the original version of Motorhead, the song that foretold Lemmy wasn't going to stand still in space rock land much longer.
And again covers, sorry......
And from Desultory here is another batch o tunes from Urchin. This was sent to me by Bigfoot Kit with Desultory's permission and thanks to both.
Urchin - The Friday Rock Show Session with Tommy Vance on BBC Radio 1 Recorded late 1977
(i'm not sure if the date is 100% accurate, i don't think the show started 'til late '78/early '79)
Also, bands only usually did 3 or 4 songs per session, so this may actually be two seperate sessions.
Whatever, it rocks mightily and is rare as hens teeth, what more can you ask for?
01. See Right Through You
02. Walkin' Out Over You
04. Walked Another Way
05. Call Me Out
06. Show Me
And also added two new sites to the links, one a Krautrock site and the other a Live365 radio station. Check 'em out if you have time
