Well as the old clock hits midnight I turn the dreaded (for me) age of 40. And I also start a new job tomorrow. It's gonna be a real interesting day. I have to train for three days and I've got the rest of the week off to forget all I learn, so I will probably have time to do a little better post later this week. But on the upside I sit here doing what I like to do, working on my blog. That makes me happy. So away we go..........
First one for today was a problem. I got it from a guy I trade with and it was listed as the self titled LP by a band called Outside Looking In. I couldn't place it, but I couldn't find any info on a band called "Outside Looking In". I found a few close matches, but nothing. And with the help of some of the fine folks that come here I found out it was actually this one. What's really embarassing is I've had the damn album for years. See why I don't wanna be 40, if my memory is this bad now, what the hell is gonna happen in ten years? Twenty? Ahhhhhhhhhh!!! I don't even wanna think about it. But anyways here is the Tangerine Zoo's 1968 LP Outside Looking In. God help me!
Here's the fairly obscure LP by White Witch's frontman, Ron Goedert called Breaking All the Rules. Pretty good stuff but a bit different that the stuff he did with the Witch. Of course the times had changed from the early 70's, production values had improved drastically so quite possibly this could be what an updated version of WW would sound like, who knows. But by all means if you liked the White Witch stuff this a least deserves a listen .
And from the request line from a while back here's Q65's great psych LP from 1968 entitled Afghanistan. This is the reissue with bonus tracks. They call this Nederbeat I hear. In any case, good Dutch psych.
And finally for tonight, Terry Reid's 1973 LP River. David Lindley (Kaliedoscope US, Jackson Browne & solo) adds some great instrumentation to this album on 5 of the 7 tracks, but my favorites on this one are the two more introspective cuts with Reid and his guitar that close the album.
