Back again

First up is an early hard rockin' Aussie band by request. I guest this was posted elsewhere awhile ago and there is plenty of info on these guys on the net. So I won't bother repeating it here. Great album from Buffalo, Only Want You For Your Body from 1974. Oh, and I'm back to megaupload and deposit files too. Too many deletions on rapidshare (as usual).

And more Canuck stuff with the great Hammersmith's LP It's For You. And to whoever requested this one, it's for him too. This is one of many albums I have for sale. Maybe I will list them here if anyone is interested.

Here is the 2nd Nutz album Nutz Too. Yet another request.

And I finally got off my ass and hooked my turntable back up again, so tomorrow I should have some more shitty vinyl rips (according to my biggest fan Mr. Fuck You who still sends me lots of enjoyable comments that I won't bore everyone by posting because they are all the same). And to the person(s) that keep reminding I missed that track on the Simon Stokes album, that is first on my list!!

Tomorrow will also feature a ton of great albums from the Nordic twilight. Lots of Head East, Russ Ballard, April Wine and some surprises!

Tuneage Incorporated

Well, it's been a week. I promise as I get more used to my job I will get back to at least two updates a week, but I am a slow creature when it comes to adapting, and I am going to try my best to plop another batch of tunes up in the next day or so. But for now here's a cool LP from the prog-rock force known as Lake. First caught these guys on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert and thought they had a kind of Supertramp vibe. But it turned out that was only a small part of what the band has to offer.
There is also an album or two of theirs posted over at walknthebass' site and hopefully they are still available because they are actually as good or better than this, their 1980 LP called Ouch!.

Next, a great heavy progger with an early stoner vibe (these guys played and hung out with Sabbath so.....what more proof could you ask for). I swear I saw this posted elsewhere but my requester assures me it's nowhere to be found so here it be. Covers and stuff in the rar on this one.

And another by request, the first Nutz LP. I think I may have posted it before,or seen it somewhere, but if not, cool. If it's somewhere else, let me know and I'll take it down. There is so much great stuff posted these days it's getting very hard to be original.

And for the final post for the evening. Requested in the last batch o'comments and yet another I didn't think I had but shasta-kazzamm* there is was on my list.

I had to copy all of these by hand from rapidshare who can't I can't seem to figure out how to get the links from anymore. So if a link doesn't work email me and I'll fix it.
*Holy Fuck!!!

Some news and some tunes

Sorry for the delay in posting. Been a trying week for me. Before I get into to this weeks tunes, I would like to address a few items. I am completely fed up with the stupid "fuck you" comments and people posting their "get rich quick scheme " and "buy our snake oil" links in the comments section. This is a music blog. If I wanted to get rich quick I'd rob a fucking bank, if I want to feel good I'd take some fucking drugs, okay? So comment moderation has been enabled. If your post relates to music, good or bad, I will post it. If it's to tell me my rips suck (I know they do) or the aforementioned bullshit I have a spam filter.

Secondly, I got so fed up with the nag screens I took the plunge and upgraded to the new blogger. It seems to work about 50 times better than the old one, so yippee for that.

Thirdly and lastly (more new words), I got tired of the emails to upload my stuff to rapidshare, so the last guy that emailed, I emailed back if you want rapidshare so goddamn bad, buy me an account. Well lo-and-behold, the person sent me 10 bucks to buy the damn thing so now I guess I'm back to rapidshare for awhile. If anyone asks me not to post to rapidshare and I'm going to lose whats left of my mind and start shooting.

Oh, and no, I still haven't uploaded that missing Simon Stokes track yet. I will soon, promise!

Sorry if I sound like Oscar the Grouch, but my fuse is very short and after that bunch of silliness that occured in the comments of the last post (take a look if you haven't seen it, but I delted most of the carnage), I have had enough. This is supposed to fun for christsakes. I've bitched enough now--sorry to the majority of you who don't deserve this shit.

Now on with the show------------

The last of the red hot Hookfoot LPs. This one is Communications from 1973. Very consistant band--if you liked the others I posted, you'll like this one. This one is on megaupload cuz it is ripped at 320k and was a bit too big for RS.

Had a request for this a long time ago and I told the guy I didn't have it. Well while scouring my MP3's looking for something else--there it was. I gotta get my shit cataloged.

This is kinda jazzy funky rock from 1974 and has a cool band history inside the rar file as well as front and back covers. Interesting cover too!

Ta-Daa! It's an album from Thundermug. Nice sized cover over at the left too. Sorry it was all I could scrounge up odd the web.

This was a request over at the other blog, but since Kit just posted a great set of cool shit, I decided to put it here. These guys were always highly touted 'round my town as a great seventies hard rock band. I was slightly disappointed at first listen, but I decided my expectations were set too high by hype and after judging them on their own merits have grown to really like these guys. If you like this one I have another so let me know. Good AOR-hard rock.

Another cool seventies hard rock album from Moxy. While I digging for a cover I found this concert ad floating on the net. Would this show have been cool or what?
Unbelievable line up there, bet the folks showing up for that show got their eardrums rattled.

And last but not least, trying to get back to basics of what this blog is all about, a great psych LP from the Third Power called Believe. Released late in the genre (1970) but still a sparkling example of it. Stunning stuff. And that wraps my post for today.

Link is fixed!!

A few more links sent from the land of Vikings

I got two emails with some more great stuff so I give them to you without pics or anything--just the links.

I will get that missing Simon Stokes track ripped as soon as possible.

Nantucket - Still Alive After All These Years.

Touch - The Complete Works. (this is the 70's hard rock band)

Wrabit - Wrough and Wready.

Wrabit - Tracks.

Wrabit - West Side Kid.

Francis Dunnery - Welcome To The Wild Country. Remastered.

Nantucket - Nantucket. 1978. (NOT good vinyl rip. Not my own rip)

The Godz - Nothing Is Sacred

The Godz - Mongolians

And there will be a few more over at the other blog tomorrow.

Requestamundo Part One

Alright kiddies, these are the ones you've been askin' for, the picks that click , all the happenin' hits right here at casa TT. First up, for Bigfoot Kit, my partner in crime over at Live and otherwise, who has patiently waited for my lazy ass to get my turntable up and runnin again, here is Simon Stokes & the Nighthawks 1970 LP. If you liked the Blackwhip Thrill band stuff I posted some time back, this isn't quite as rude or rowdy, but the bike gangs still loved it. And I bet Mick Farren has a copy. Kiss demos at the LOA tomorrow Kit!!

Front and back covers to left the left somewhere. (got tired of everybody cussin' me out over deposit files but I'm still usin' them for small files)

Goddo's first for somebody who wondered why with all the Canadian stuff posted they weren't included. Well now they is. This is the 1977 original ish in mint condish, but sorry for the low bitrate, but it still sounds great. Is my dj patter beginning to get old yet?

Well times three. It's been awhile since I've posted a good old dyed in the wool moldy oldie, and here, again, by request is Fire with the Magic Shoemaker. If I could find a pair of shoes that didn't tear up after 6 months of carryin' my ass around, those would be magic, by God. This one is from 1970.

A triad of Blue Cheer to blow out your eardrums to! First up is the 1969 album Outside Inside, then the reunion album
from '83 which is basically Vincebus Eruptum updated for the 80s with "new improved" sound from the band. The original cover is here, only the reissue covers are in the rar. And finally sans picture I have chosen a live potpouri from a boot called interestingly enough 68-74 Live. Decent sound, good song choices , best boot I own by these goons of megawattage.

The live one: (54.88 MB)

The Beast is Back: (67.93 MB)

Outside Inside (48.05 MB)

And to finish today's post on a quieter note, probably the mellowest album from the 'Van. Probably the least favored by fans of the 'Van (at least according to various websites). It's not my favorite either but it's really not bad for what it is, a 1976 lite-prog rock album. It was a bad year for the genre with that noisey punk music rearing it's ugly head in the UK and Boston and Peter Frampton ruling the airwaves in teh states. This album didn't stand a chance. But by request from at least a couple people here's Blind Dog at St. Dunstans. Hell they even mellowed out on the title. Remember Cunning Stunts (that Metallica shamelessly stole without giving credit) and For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night, or maybe If I Could Do It All Over Again, I'd Do It All Over You?

Back soon with more groovy requests and some new links sent from Viking land!
