All over the place this time out

A new batch of goodies for ya'll. Baked fresh and just out of the oven for your consumption. Hope they taste good.

I goofed and lost my rapidshare account for a month, but all the links that are still active will remain so if I can get 10,000 points before August 18th (so download like a mutha if you like rapidshare).

The majority of the depositfiles are still active and so are the megaupload links from Nov 2006 to present. So there are still goodies to be found here, if you dig deeply. Until August 18th (or until 10,000 points whichever comes first) I have to use megaupload again.

I haven't had a whole lot of time lately to visit all the great blogs out there so if these are posted elsewhere I apologise, but I did do my own work here, I didn't leech anyone's links or anything underhanded like that.

And away we go:

This diverse batch of goodies starts off with some sunshine pop (or pop-syke if you please). This is Truck's Surprise Surprise. It's Malaysian psych and really was a surprise! Released in 1969, the major influence here would have to the Beatles hands down. So if you haven't gotten enough John Paul George and Ringo to get your fill lately, give this a try.


Absolutely beautiful artwork adorns this Italian hard psych release from Italy. This is I Raminghi's 1973 release Il Lungo Cammino Dei Raminghi. I love this and you will too (possibly).


A tiny blurb to go with this tiny artwork. The Japan psych has been popular so here is yet another. Good hard psych from Brush with their sole LP from 1971. The leader of this band moved on to Flied Egg after this. The LP has been reissued by Shadocks but it's vinyl only.


And for you fans of the U.S. stuff, here's some southern rock with the privately pressed It's For You from the band Missouri Dirt. Released in 1977 on the Illmo label, this one is hard to find.

NOTE: The track "Missouri Dirt" is screwed up. I got it that way. If I can figure out who I got it from and get a replacement I will repost it. Sorry, but the album is still worth grabbing!!!

No not another excuse!

Nah, not me. I'm just taking it easy during these hot summer months. The heat is brutal on us big bored goofballs. I promise---I am getting a post ready to unleash on you all late tonight or early tomorrow.

But I wanted to share with you a very cool site you should all check out A.S.A.P. if you don't already know about it. It has some great stuff, it's mostly AOR like the Erik the Viking stuff from awhile ago, but really good AOR. And there's quite a bit of obscure psych, prog and metal there too.

The blog is called Robots For Ronnie and the address is:


The owner sent me a invite in the comments and I finally got over there and went absolutely bonkers at the great stuff he's got going there.

First up today, here is Dickens' Royal Incarnation from 1971. Cool proggy psych with nice fuzzy guitars and above average song structures. Good stuff, sorry bout the fuzzy picture, maybe the guitarist got ahold of it!!


Since I posted their first album some time ago, I thought I'd drop the 2nd on you finally. This is Fraternity of Man's Get it On. This band featured Elliot Ingbar who was better known as Winged Eel Fingerling when he played for Captain Beefheart and also was one of the guitarists on Frank Zappa's Freak Out LP. This album has it's Freak Out's too and it pretty cool psych.


And lastly a proggy rock LP from UK band Wally. Released in 1974 it was produced by none other than Yes-Man Rick Wakeman. It's pretty cool stuff.


Here's some stuff I'm selling on ebay. If you are interested drop me an email.
If you'd prefer you buy it directly from me with paypal and get the same guarantee as if you bought it from ebay. I opened a store on there so new stuff will be apearing daily.
