.....I started to do a few requests and ended up going apeshit. So without further adieu, adon't and ahalfassdo, I bring you a megasuperpost that should have something for everybody. So if you like what I put up here please go over to the liveandotherwise blog and show me a bit of like by clicking on a few ads over there. I really could use the dough. Gas is ridiculous these days and I work at a gas station.
First up, since the other Babe Ruth I posted went over fairly well, here is yet another. From 1975 it's Stealin' Home.
And for some prog done German style you could do worse than these guys. Kaputter Hamster's self titled 1973 LP.
Some southern styled hard rock from 1979 is represented here by Two Guns with their lone LP called Balls Out. And Balls Out it is. Good stuff.
Here's some more West Coast pop-sike. From Frisco it's the Serpent Power's lone LP that was released on Vanguard in 1967. Heavy Dead, Airplane, (and especially) Country Joe & the Fish vibe on this one. My faves tend to be the two instrumentals and of course there is the seemingly manditory novelty drug reference song here, thankfully it's only 30 seconds long. This one is surprisingly good, and grows on you with repeated listenings.
Some pre-Sensational Alex Harvey Band hard boogie rock with Zal and the boys . Here's Tear Gas' 1970 LP (I think '69 overseas) Piggy Go Getter. This should be played loud (and often).
A repost by request. If you got this the last time I posted it and dug it, you may want to grab this, it's at 320kbps, but the tracks aren't separated. But it sounds so much better than the old rip I had.
Another request, this time for some (more) pop-sike. This is the Peanut Butter Conspiracy's third LP For Children of All Ages.
Yet another If LP, this one is an unusually long tile for these guys. I guess they got tired of the 1, 2, 3 Chicago style of album titles. And they are quite the comedians when they wanna be. Could that title be any more tongue in cheek?
Some Italian bluesy psych-hard-rock recorded in 1969, but not released til 1990 according to the website which I could only read little bits of. Great rippin' fuzz guitar and an ep length make this a good place to start with these guys. This is Il Balletto di Bronzo - Il Re Del Castillo
Next up is a great one from Creepy John Thomas. Bluesy hard rock from 1970 with Brother Bat Bone. Think maybe I should stop now?
Nah, I'm on a roll here. Yet another request (and sorry about this sorry cover) here is the Dirty Blues Band's 1969 LP Stone Dirt. The music? It's Dirty Blues for God's sake!!
Frijid Pink's were kind of missing in action when they released this 1975 LP, All Pink Inside to little or no fanfare. But it isn't really that far off from their earlier stuff, maybe a bit more mainstream. But still worthy of a little ear time.
Can't forget the folk fans, although this is kinda psych folk. But it does involve Richard and Mimi Farina and is a great listen. From 1969 it's a Message From Birmingham Sunday.
For the hard rock fans out there this the first of a couple I have posted for your enjoyment. This was originally posted at the great 6070rock blog about a year ago and I got a request for it, so I checked and the link was dead, so I took the liberty of reripping it. So here is Hydra's 1975 LP Land of Money.
And the second of of the hard rock, here's one I can't say enough great things about. Either released in 1973 or 1978 originally (the CD says '78) depending on who's site you go to. It definetly sounds more '73 style to me. The rewiews all point to Black Sabbath as the reference point, but I tend to think more along the lines of the first two Blue Oyster Cult albums as this is ominous sounding but not quite heavy or dirgelike enough to really compare with Sabbath. But it's fantastic stuff nonetheless and I love this one and have been playing it endlessly the past few days.
And finally, finally, here is the 1973 LP Substratum from Country Lane. I think Garcola originally had this on 8 Days, but I re-ripped it as a request for somebody.
Look for a post over at the liveandotherwise blog very soon, I've been slacking a bit over there, but Kit has been more than making up for my neglect. Great stuff over there, and click those ads (I know---shut up already about that).
