Doing what I can, when I can, how I can for who I can!



Updated: 2017-11-20T05:14:20.150-08:00

 



If anyone is still around......

2008-02-24T18:54:54.360-08:00

Still no solution to my aforementioned problems, but since I still want to keep this blog rolling (pun intended) I have come up with an idea. What is happening is after an hour or so my uploads are timing out and I cannot get a full file to upload to either rapidshare or megaupload. So I am going to put this question to any and all who still may be lurking around my humble domocile:

Would anyone be interested in me uploading files song by song (i.e.: one file per song) or would this be a total waste of time? I think I can get it to work this way, and it would only be temporary until I get my shit together. I figure for those with accounts with rapidshare it probably wouldn't be a total pain in the ass, but for those without, it would probably take hours and hours. So let me know if this sounds okay for an interim solution and I will be back in a couple days to get a verdict. Please let me know either way.



Also wanna say hello and thanks to all those who haven't totally given up on me yet and thanks to Kit who has taken command of the liveandotherwise blog and turned it into one hell of a cool place to grab the hard goods!



Replies, delays, etc, etc, etc......

Howdy soakes, I mean folks. I am now encountering problems with uploading and I cannot figure out if it is due to my new internet service provider or because of something with Vista. I am searching the web trying in vain to figure out the problem and I seem to be getting nowhere. I am not very tech savvy. Problem is my uploads are so slooooooow, rapidshare times out on my uploads. I am using a new ISP called Clearwire and I am hearing bad things about upload speeds with them, but my downloads are wizzin' (as long as I don't try to dl too much concurrently).So I am not intentionally slacking, it's just I can't get this friggin' computer up to snuff.As far as the Simon Stokes goes, I am trying to go through the DVDs I ripped before my other hard drive went kapoopie. If I can find it I will get it back up here, I hopefully didin't lose it along with a ton of other stuff.As far as using the so-called link masks, I don't think they help as I encounter plenty of stuff at mass mirror, shareabee and lix that are deleted. So apparently there is no way to get around that.And lastly on the debate of being able to hear stuff before you buy it (my final 2 pennies, and I am saying no more--til next time hehe), I agree to some extent with both sides. There are a lot of people that actually buy the stuff they like (I know 2 guys first hand at work that spend 80 to 100 bucks a week on CDs---they have the disposable income , and yeah they usually dl it first to see if it's worth their bucks), and probably just as many or more who don't. But if the people who dig it go and buy a used copy is that helping these bands anymore than if they download it? Not hardly. Is it hurting them anymore than if they download? I would have to say no again. The only time a download hurts an artist is if that person that downloads their album was going to buy that album new and then doesn't BECAUSE of that download. I have downloaded a lot of crappy stuff that I would never spend a penny on, and it has met Mr. Recycle bin. I don't keep trash, my apartment would stink. But speaking for myself I am a very poor person and (blah blah blah, most of you have heard my life story already) cannot afford to buy this stuff at 25-35 bucks a pop. The sad truth is when I get the luxury of buying a new CD it usually goes to the local used store next time I am hard up for cash. So I mostly buy used, and depend on the ignorance of most of the used stores in my area to not know what the hell they have when an obscure psych or prog CD hits their store (and that is few and far between).But, say I download something by Band X and their tour bus pulls into town next Tuesday. I decide I can afford the 15-20 bucks (most bands I like haven't hit the arena prices yet) to catch them live and do so. I might even buy a trinket of memoribilia or a CD from them at the show.Have I not become a supportive fan of Band X? Am I still a dirty rotten scoundel? Well, let's see.........Now that money from the concert and trinket of worship will probably get to them, but Mr. Suit doesn't give a shit about that because I didn't buy the latest tin can lid he is making bucks on. So Mr. Suit decides to sue me, or hinder my ability to check out his band (no, I can't make a valid decision on a 22 second snippet or 1 or 2 songs, sorry! Lots of bands put out albums with 2 or 3 decent songs and 52-65 minutes of pure shit---and you know it, or you'd WANT me to hear it all). But yet still I understand your need to make a buck or two (or a hundred thousand), and until they come up with a way to make disposable downloads (i.e.: listen for 24 to 48 hours and they implode or something) I can understand your animosity to people like me. But just because you are upset about Band X getting downloaded, you don't have to go getting rare albums that will never see the light of day deleted to prove anything. Just ask and 95% of the bloggers will remove YOUR stuff. Then go to the painstaking efforts to have the other 5% removed. Most of us really don't wanna hurt anyone, even you. Do you reall[...]



Oh good God, here we go again........

2008-01-08T20:18:21.098-08:00

I leave the blogsphere for a couple months and the whole place goes nuts. I have spent the last few weeks trying to dig up all my old links that I'd lost only to find that there is another (the same one?) so called deleter out there again and he/they are virtually destroying some of the best blogs out here.

It begs many questions. Why someone would waste time reporting and getting albums that sold about 5 copies in the last twenty years deleted? Don't they realise that they are all but eliminating any chance these albums have got? Are they just trying to ruin people's harmless enjoyment, of which there are so few left in this fucked up world?

I have said this before, and I have to say it again--you cannot stop this, and we will find other methods of sharing. You can't stop people buying used stuff, and you can't stop the liraries from loaning out the stuff. Give it up and get a life. Go fight against something you can actually win, or even better, something productive (God forbid!!). You are fighting something similar to a war on drugs here.

I just got an anonymus (of course) comment that said "We're stopping you from stealing from us......" and to that I say, why not let the artists decide for themselves if they want you to be their gatekeeper. Who made you king of the blogs? Myself and many others have gotten plenty of praise from artists who were just glad to be remembered (and also a few who asked their stuff to be removed--which all bloggers I know comply with A.S.A.P.). I don't recall any "we" becoming the appointed mayor(s) of blogtown.

I will be back in a couple days with some stuff, and it will probably only last a few hours so you'll have to grab it quick. Or possibly I will upload it twice and save one link for the good folks I know well to trust with them. We'll see how it goes. You know, if some people could just use the time they waste on petty nonsense for good, this world could be a better place.



One last quickie for 2007, then it's a new year!!

2008-12-08T13:58:25.710-08:00

(image)

Well the last post of this turbulent year is a great hard rock album from 1972. I'm sure anyone reading this blog is familiar with these guys and if by chance you aren't, here's the perfect oppurtunity to do so.

Note: I have been extremely out of the loop of the internet for the past couple months so, hopefully this hasn't been posted elsewhere. If so, I'll gloat about my grand rip at 320K.

This was ripped and uploaded basically to make sure I had everything tweeked right on this new computer. I will be back in a couple days with a bigger and better post.

In the meantime I'd like to wish all a happy new year and myself a better one than last year!!

You can't Enjoy bercause it's been trolled by some twat. sorry, !




I think I'm back?!?!?!?!?

2007-12-27T03:18:03.329-08:00

Watch here for a post really soon.........


Thanks to all the well-wishers who have stuck around over this past year of trials and tribulations. I decided to go ahead and get a computer instead of trying to fix the old one, and so after some heavy shopping, i picked out yety another Dell (I guess I'll never learn). Anyways, I am sitting here trying to learn this bullshit Vista and digging through my discs of programs to find my ripping software and other stuff I need to run this blog (poorly at best). It'll be a couple more days as i try, mostly in vain, to recover lost passwords and other such stuff.........



Just droppin' in.....

2007-12-18T07:43:26.672-08:00

Sorry, still no new computer yet. But I wanted to drop by and wish everyone a merry Christmas
or happy holidays or whatever you celebrate (or don't celebrate) for that matter.

Hopefully things will get better soon and I can get back to some sort of posting real soon.

Thanks everyone for your patience and not giving up on me yet!!


B-



A couple new ones from BFK! Thanks!

2007-12-03T07:44:49.429-08:00

My plight is ongoing, but thanks to Bigfoot Kit, here are a couple groovy LPs to help keep you happy in the cold winter. I am slowly trying to get it back together, but I am trying to find a semi-reasonable place to try and recover my hard drive which had not only 35 gigs of rarities and cool shit, but also all my passwords and stuff. And please don't tell me I'm stupid for storing them on my drive. I already know that!! Back soon (hopefully)!!

Well, just when I thought everything was okay.......

2007-11-26T10:49:50.464-08:00

I went and fried my harddrive. I would say what the fuck else could happen, but I might get shown by some higher power. So again, until I can scrape the funds together to get a new PC or hard drive, we again will be having technical difficulties until further notice.

If anyone would like to contribute albums to the site in the meantime, please reply and I will post them here as I get a bit of access to the computer at work. At least this space won't go to waste.

I should have a new drive or PC by the middle of December so everyone please keep in touch.



Hit a few more bumps, but I think I have my shit together

2008-12-08T13:58:26.216-08:00

Let's hope so anyway. It took long enough!! Back to the tuneage.Up first in a line of stuff that will hopefully please many of you, is yet another in a line of albums by the UK prog-rock band Babe Ruth. This is Kid's Stuff, from 1976 and while not as strong as their early albums like First Base, still manages not to disappoint completely. Shorter songs, more pop direction and a general lack of adventure dogs this one a bit, but this band had talent and they maintained it until the end.http://www.megaupload.com/?d=HSGFMN1IAnd yet another in a long line of IF lps I've posted over the last year or so. This one is 1975's Tea Break Over...Back On Your "Eads. If you enjoyed the recently posted "Not Just Another Bunch of Pretty Faces" then this one won't disappoint.http://www.megaupload.com/?d=1OX78QZ3This album from 1970 is one of my new favorites. Created by one Sixto Rodriguez, a man with a huge myth, who was extremely popular outside the U.S. (Australia for one) this album was a kiss off of sorts to a girl. Consider the era it was released in as you listen and you'll have no trouble figuring out why an album with this kind of sentiment wasn't doing big business at the retail counter. Love, peace and harmony are just the tip of what you AREN'T going to find in these grooves.What you will find however is some very good rock, often hard rock with some biting lyrics and some very good songs. Give it a try!!http://www.megaupload.com/?d=L3EML0DHAnd finally for today, When the Raven Has Come to the Earth, a 1971 LP by the mysterious Strawberry Path. I gotta say it is one of the most visually unstimulating album covers I've had the pleasure of laying my corneas on. But this is a great smoking Japanese hard rock band with a singer who mildly resembles Tony Ashton, a keyboardist who ripped a page out of the Jon Lord playbook and a guitarist who hits on any number of early 70s rock axeslingers but still manages to make it sound fresh and yes, the man rips mightily song after song. Great fuzzed out rhythms and sharp stinging lead work are top shelf. Overall very good blues based early 70s hard rock with some mild prog touches.http://www.megaupload.com/?d=I6BTYK1RAnd there is more to come, and now that I have things a bit more under control I will do my best to update more regularly (for awhile at least--until the roadblock appears!!). And keep the requests comin'. I'll see what I can do.[...]



I moved and hopefully everything will get back to normal

2007-09-18T18:46:48.818-07:00

I had to get out of the house I was living in as everything went wrong. The furnace when kapoot, the roof sprung a major leak and the water main broke. Shit happens I suppose. I finally (just an hour or so ago) got my internet back so I will be uploading some new stuff very soon. For the folks who ordered albums from me, I apologize for the delay and will get them all mailed out as soon as I can (next few days) and thanks for your patience. A few have already been mailed.

Here's a couple leftovers from that megapost I made a few weeks ago that I forgot to post.

A quick note:

2007-08-07T15:14:52.930-07:00

Update coming this weekend. WELL THAT WAS AN OUTRIGHT LIE, WASN'T IT? Soon I promise!


Just a note, if you want responses to your comments, please submit your comment on the newest post (i.e.--this one!!) not posts from eternities ago. When you respond to them I have to try to search out the comment and that takes way too much time (blogger doesn't tell me which post you respond to).

So from this point onward, I will publish all comments, but I will not search for them. If you want a reply, top level post comments will get them.

For the person who asked for the Atlantis repost I cannot post those albums as I have had requests from a band member not to post any of their material.

See you all soon!

TT-



All over the place this time out

2008-12-08T13:58:26.774-08:00

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.http://www.megaupload.com/?d=664C7J38Absolutely 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).http://www.megaupload.com/?d=C3K336N3A 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.http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3H6Q5NP5And 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!!!http://www.megaupload.com/?d=T0DGOAE2[...]



No not another excuse!

2007-07-23T17:30:45.086-07:00

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:

http://www.robotsforronnie.blogspot.com/

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.

(image) 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.



http://rapidshare.com/files/41979054/FOM-GIO.rar









(image)
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.

News and music...........

2008-12-08T13:58:27.835-08:00

I finally started that new blog I have been threatening to start to post news and views on the state of the world. If my posts on the subject earlier were of any interest to you, I would like to invite any and all of you to check it out and anyone is welcome to contribute to that blog. My email address is there so drop me a line if you have any worthwhile news, anecdotes or , hell, anything. If you can find it in your hearts (as you've all been so nice and done in the past) , click on an ad or two while you are there. And I am working to get a few affiliates signed up (nothing so far) but I will be adding them as time allows. No corporate whores like amazon, just some mom and pop businesses looking to survive like you and I.http://www.drowningseaofmadness.blogspot.com/As I said before, with it being summertime, music posts are probably going be slow, but I will continue to to add stuff as time allows (for those who don't know, an average post of 4 albums takes around 3 to 4 hours start to finish). I am working on one for tonight. And here it is.........First up, and probably the most well known of all I am going to post tonight is Sky Saxon and his merry band of acidheads with their 1967 LP Future. I found covers for this but apparently it was only released in conjunction with another LP, but I stuck them in their anyway. Maybe the other album will turn up sometime soon, but I don't have it at this time.http://depositfiles.com/files/1101437The Unspoken Word is another in my line of cool West Coast psych I have been posting. This one was released in 1968.http://depositfiles.com/files/1101439A mega rarity here from Brazil. This is Bango's self titled release from 1971. Acid soaked psych with fuzz guitars and heavy tunes.http://depositfiles.com/files/1101432Some softer sounds from 1969. Mortimer were a psych folk group that released this one album on Philips. Good stuff to wind down a hectic day.http://depositfiles.com/files/1101435And finally for this fine summer eve is the self titled LP from Mike Pinera and Blues Image. Not as good as Open and nothing as significant as "Ride Captain Ride" on this one, but not too bad either. Mike would soon be heading to Iron Butterfly for one interesting album called Metamorphosis after one more (way more challenging) album with these guys.http://depositfiles.com/files/1101434That's all for tonight!! Back soon![...]



Stop me before I rant again!!!!!!!

2007-06-22T20:52:57.125-07:00

One or two more tiny rants before I get back to posting some cool obscure out of print music that I hope & pray CBS-Sony doesn't object too.
I was thinking about all this copyright this and copyright that bullshit I've been reading from several sources, and all of a sudden a big question popped into my head.....
Where the fuck are my rights? I guess I better buy a good pair of headphones because if Cary and his henchmen get their way, I might get sued for sharing sound waves of their precious bands. I am getting downright sick and fucking tired of everyone else's rights getting in the way of my rights as a consumer.
In a lot of ways this coincides with the post I made not too long ago about people getting alert and waking up to what is going down around them.
Back to the point----where can I find what rights I do have as a buyer of music (and movies as well) in the good old USSA. When I was twelve I bought a record album of Black Sabbath's Sabotage. When I was fourteen I bought the cassette, and a few years back I bought the damn CD. Now is it illegal for me to download the MP3's since I now have supposedly have some rights of ownership? Or can my 1995 burp and fart car be confiscated for doing so? Can I let my friends hear it legally? Will radio soon be only playing snippets of songs so no one can tape them of the airwaves? God forbid!!! Will the libraries soon only be able to loan out promo snippet copies of CDs and DVDs with constant 800 numbers flashing across the screen asking me to narc on the offending source of obtainment?
Does anyone know what my rights are and/or where I can find them? Or don't I have any other than being able to play my copy of my recording I purchased in a dark room by myself.



And to switch gears slightly and retouch on a oft-mentioned topic:


And to hit slightly on a related topic----It takes me back to the 80s when the RIAA was screaming foul at the makers of blank cassettes and boohooing that it would "kill the music". It didn't.
And here is a newsflash RIAA and henchmen. Bloggers aren't going to kill the music either and as long as MTV Cribs and all the other various TV tabloids are showing us the various houses of the stars (usually huge mansions with 8-10 cars parked outside) and all their flamboyant lifestyle choices, you aren't going to find many people sympathizing with you. Yes, again, I am a sensible person and I realize not all bands and artists are rich like that. But I can read, and I see the sales figures in billboard magazine and if the artists and performers aren't doing too well, it's probably got something to do with the life-draining contracts you've nailed them to, not the file swappers, and you just need a scapegoat.



Last word on a silly subject.......

2007-06-20T21:38:52.081-07:00

I have gone here before so I am not gonna go haywire on the subject. Emails are pouring on both sides (as usual) and comments are being made so here is the deal........First let it be said I have made notice in the past, and it holds for the future, that if anything I post here on this blog goes against anyone's wishes, please let me know and I will take it down immediately. I do not wish to infringe upon anyone's rights, weather they seem ridiculous or not.I used to get email notifications instantly when someone responded to my posts, and for some reason blogger stopped sending them. I though no one was responding to what I was posting. No big deal, I just figuredno one had anything to say. Maybe I turned something off somewhere, I do not know, but for whatever reason, they are not going to my email.On a whim I happened to go into blogger "dashboard" and found some 30 odd comments that needed moderation. Among them 2 requesting I remove an album I posted. One was a decent request to remove the said album, the second, a more venomous note with an implied warning or threat (perception in the eye of the beholder, may or may not be true).Now, that being said, I have had folks ask that I remove albums before, and usually I get a decent email from either a band member or an associate of the band with a request to remove said item(s). I have always compiled as soon as humanly possible to these requests and never made a big deal about it, because it is the band's music and if they don't want people grabbing it to check out that is their business. I am at least of average intelligence and I knew the risks when I went into to blogging. I try my best to only post out of print stuff, and yes I know out of print doesn't mean it has no copyright. And I am very familiar with all the good work one Salvador Bono did to make those copyrights laws absolutely absurd.But this has gotten way out of control. After my explanation of the reason why I did not comply to this person's request to remove said files immediately, that seems not to be good enough. Someone feels I need a lesson of facts I already know, and since they are being sent anonymously I cannot tell if these are associated with the person sending the original request to remove said files, if some rouge holier than thou is back in business, or what the hell is going on. Whatever it is, the file is gone forever, the band will never ever be mentioned in this blog again, and it is done and over with on my end. I have apologized three times now, and I will apologize no more. I fucked up, get over it. Gonna try to get money outta me? Get in line, my friend!As far as a record label suing me goes---let me fill you in on my sordid details in case you haven't already heard me complaining in the past.I am a 40 year old guy who works at a gas station. A clerk for christsakes. I am below poverty level's poverty level and I owe everyone and their brother at least a dollar. I couldn't borrow a quarter with 2 as collateral. My next three paychecks are spent already, friends! I ain't got nothing but an ever shrinking record collection that is slowly ending up at record stores/on ebay and this here computer (an eight year old Dell Dimension desktop) that is the one guilty pleasure I get out of life. And my internet gets shut off from time to time, they are one of the many that have to wait from time to time too. My back is completely fucked up, but I can't afford to take off work to go to the doctor, I support two kids that live with me and I drive a 1995 lawnmower on wheels with 123,000 miles on it . When it idles you could make milkshakes[...]



Time for a new batch

2008-12-08T13:58:28.675-08:00

Stuff mostly in a psych vein today, because that's where my head's been lately, listening to some mind expanding trippy sixties (and early 70's) vibrations. But as always a few surprises thrown in to hopefully give everyone a bit of enjoyment. First up for today is some psychy hard rock from the Floating Bridge. This Seattle, Washington band's only LP, released on Vault in 1969, is mainly good fuzzed out hard originals, and then two kinda Deadish jam cover tunes done as instrumentals. Although I could do without the cover tunes, the rest of the album is highly recommended.http://depositfiles.com/files/1036359I've probably said it before, but most of the so called Christian psych I hear sounds more like folk music to me, not that there's anything wrong with that, but when the word psych is thrown in, I wanna hear psych for Christian sake. That problem is not an issue here, however. This one, the Last Call of Shiloh, from 1969 ranks up there with People, Moonrakers and All Saved Freak Band on my list of dyed in the tye, hippie psych Jesus rock. Nice stuff with some good guitar licks and although the lyrics overbear a bit, it's some gosh darn good listenin'.http://depositfiles.com/files/1036363Here's an interesting rock album I picked up a few years ago based on cover (always a 50/50 chance of something good coming from it) and what I got turned out to an album with a bit of history. I'll share what I found out from an unknown (forgotten) site on the web:Produced by Peter Schekeryk; Engineered by Eddie Kramer & Bruce Staple. Recorded at the Electric Lady Studios, NYC, NY in 1972. Is alleged to features Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley on backing vocals, BUT this has not been substantiated. Five dollar Shoes was: Gregg Diamond (drums, percussion, vocals), Tom Graves (keyboards, vocals), Jim Gregory (bass, vocals), Mike Millius (harmonica, vocals), and Scott Woody (guitar, vocals). As for the music, it's kinda "Allman Bros. Meets New York Dolls with a touch of Pink Floyd" early 70's rock.http://depositfiles.com/files/1036348R. Meltzer compared them to the VU with a west coast vibe on the title track, Hackamore Brick's LP from '70 called One Kiss Leads To Another. Very cool stuff.http://depositfiles.com/files/1036361Saw this on a want list from 60/70 rock and hopefully he'll catch this one. This is a very early shred album from either '81 or '83 from a band called Meat Phredd. It was recorded in Columbus, Ohio and I could kick my own ass, because I sold mine a year and half ago for 5 bucks and it gets 150+ on ebay!!!! This one is a vinyl rip from that said LP and is unfortunetly divided into side one and side two mp3s with no song titles listed. Being that it is instrumental guitar music, I guess the song titles really don't matter, but they can be found on the net if one were to look a bit. Recommended if you are into the Joe Satriani Steve Vai type wanking, otherwise you may wanna avoid.http://depositfiles.com/files/1036367I just found this the other day in a bargain bin at a local CD store!! 3 bucks for this one. Turned out to be some really cool hard proggy stuff. I haven't really done much digging on the band (again, check the 'net, there's probably more info on it) but I'm guessing from the dates on the CD it comes from 1975 originally.Anywho, it's Brainstorm with their LP Last Smile.http://depositfiles.com/files/1036354[...]



Here's a few finally.......

2008-12-08T13:58:29.385-08:00

More Detroit rock and roll. Dick Wagner led the Frost, and it's hard rock with maybe a slight RnB tinge. Dick as many of you know went on to play with Alice Cooper supplying tasty licks to some of Alice's post Cooper band LPs . This is Frost Music from 1969, originally released on Vanguard in the states.http://depositfiles.com/files/998583This one I uploaded as a favor to a friend, and decided to include it here if anyone would like to check it out. In the late 60's Marshall Chess was trying to hop on trends, since his roster of 50's blues and RnB clients were considered passe and behind the times, he decided to pair them up with hip and happening new sounds (i.e: Chuck Berry with the Steve Miller band) and see if he couldn't score some action with it. This is Muddy's result. The gatefold LP's inner sleeve showing a picture of Muddy with a process hairdo and a long flowing robe says it all. He tried the same thing with Howlin' Wolf (the title was: Howlin' Wolf Does Not Like This Album.....) with mixed results. But Muddy's LP was actually pretty cool. He covers the Stones (logical choice bandwise since they were disciples of his, but song choice a bit iffy) and retooled some of his classics to "fit the times". A mixed bag, but one that is never boring.http://depositfiles.com/files/998585Another LP from '69, this time some Canadian psych from the Rabble with their LP "Give Us Back Elaine"http://depositfiles.com/files/998591And finally, some more mainstream rock, this being Brandywine's Aged LP from 1970. A few hard rock tunes intertwine with more mainstream rock sounds. Never bubblegummy or sappy, just nice AOR for the times and well worth checking out. I will admit I'd never heard this U.S. band until a couple weeks ago and was pleasently surprised.http://depositfiles.com/files/998579Hopefully I get a few more up tonight. Been working way too much and finally got a couple days off.Enjoy!![...]



Return to the Tune Age

2008-12-08T13:58:29.881-08:00

(image) Well, thanks everyone for your understanding and respect (at least most of you anyways) while I went off on a tangent. My apologies for taking so long to get back to the music, but here is some stuff for ya. Not a huge amount of stuff, but some stuff, nonetheless. For starters, here is Stan Webb & Chicken Shack's 1973 LP Unlucky Boy.








http://depositfiles.com/files/921584





(image)
And next up the only Nutz LP I haven't yet posted. This is their Live One from '77. Very cool stuff too!








http://depositfiles.com/files/921586








(image) Jim Dandy & the boys are still slogging it out after all these years and here is an album of their's that fell through the cracks. I don't much about it, because most people don't seem to care much about these guys anymore. They can still rock and this album from 2001 that is extrememly hard to find proves it.









http://depositfiles.com/files/921577


(image)
And finally a very nice psych LP from 1969. This is the Paper Garden's sole LP, released on the Musicor label which jumped on the psych bandwagon too late to matter (this and Rebbeca & the Sunnybrook Farmers where the extent of it, I believe). But this one is highly sought after and routinely goes for 80 dollars plus. And it's probably worth it too.

Hi again,

I hope I didn't scare everyone away with my previous post. I just felt I should say something about the state of things as I am perceiving them. I am going to get a music post up in the next day or so but I have been so wrapped up in current world events and amazed at how blind so many people seem to be to it or just don't seem to care.

I have decided to continue any posts on subjects not music related on a separate blog so those that seem to happy with the state of the world will not be offended by my remarks.

Eventually, when I gather my thoughts together I will start that blog, so check my profile and it will pop up sometime soon.

TT-



One of those "every once in a while" rants......

2007-05-19T17:44:24.103-07:00

For those of you who just hang around for the music, I just posted a few new ones so go on below and grab 'em.I am not gonna go off on deleter assholes or anything like that, I've just been reading a lot stuff the past few days that has gotten me to thinking about the state of the world and the absolute mess we are in.What terrifies me most is that things are getting worse daily, weekly and monthly and no one seems to want to stop any of it. Where are all the people crying out about the injustices in the world. Have we all become sheep? Why does everyone seem to be willing to let the government take our lives over and not let out a whimper.Watch the following and see if it doesn't unnerve you a bit. It is a parody of sorts but it is a chilling prediction of things to come. And if you think it can't happen here, listen to the Frank Zappa song with that title or any number of his early Mothers songs and see he was a bit more prophetic than he seemed 15 or 20 years ago.http://idorosen.com/mirrors/robinsloan.com/epic/ols-master.htmlWhat scares me is how the world is getting scarfed up at an alarming rate by a few individual companies whose main objective seems to be to rule this world. There used to be laws to keep this sort of thing from happening. Now all of these DMRC and IPPA laws are being legislated as a smoke screen to keep the agencies that should be watchdogging multi-national corporations busy watchdogging internet file sharers and people using pirated software. Don't worry about our country becoming the Fourth Reich, the Social Republic of WalMart, or the Eisner States of America, for Christ sake Johnny is downloading the new Madonna single. Never mind the fact Johnny can't afford that CD because he already works for us for subhuman slave wages, never mind the fact that record companies phased out real singles 15 years because no one was buying the rest of her horrid fucking album, and never mind that he can go to any library in America and "borrow" and rip the damn file in the privacy of his own home. He is on "our" internet and now he must pay dearly. Prison for Christsakes, or a portion of his subhuman slave wage check for the rest of his life here on "our" earth.Move out the mass murderers, move out the child rapists, move out the terrorists, because we need prison space for internet pirates.What is next folks? When two or three major companies own 90% of the world who do you think is going to make the decisions? Nobodies like you and me or the 5 major shareholders of WalMart whose combined salaries beat the combined total of everyone who works for them? And don't forget they are the world's biggest employer. What does that tell you? And stop and think as you buy that 4 pack of shit tickets for 79 cents less than the mom and pop store (if you are lucky enough to still have those, if not they were the guys down the street that actually cared to get to know you and your family) that is just a few dollars away from sticking that huge red going out of business sign in their front window, am I somehow partly responsible for killing the dream? Remember when the middle class ruled? Remember when you were a kid and your dad who worked for General Motors made a house payment, a car payment, payed all the other bills and still had enough left over to take you to the ballgame or maybe enough time to hang out and play ball in the front yard because he didn't have to work 3 jobs to survive under the conditions WE have sat back and le[...]



More Milky Way Revelations

2008-12-08T13:58:30.760-08:00

Here's another great Lighthouse LP for you fans of the compilation I posted a few travels ago. This is probably their best album, One Fine Morning from 1971. Nice kick back and enjoy life type stuff here, positive and uplifting, and it just doesn't matter that the world is fucked up, because Lighthouse is on......http://depositfiles.com/files/881763 Yet another repost by request. Can't remember when I posted it, but it wasn't that long ago, and the reason I posted it then is the same as now. It's just a great psych excursion. Here's the Fredric with Phases and Faces.http://depositfiles.com/files/881779Now for some hard prog. Got this not too long ago and was amazed by it. I can't believe this stuff was happening in 1974 (of course in 1974 my mind was being blown by Black Sabbath and Deep Purple and I had no clue about anything that wasn't on the radio, even though radio was much better then........). This is Pinnacle with Cyborg Assassin.http://depositfiles.com/files/881774 Since the Mops went over fairly well, I decided to post some more mindwrecking Jap-psych. This being Speed Glue & Shinki's 1971 album Eve. When the Japanese decide to take on a trend they either take it to new dimesions or totally warp the hell out of it, and I must say it is never less than intriguing. But this, friends, is fairly astonishing stuff. As Shinki would probably tell you "Pray Rowed" (sorry, had to do it)!!!http://depositfiles.com/files/881901Some garage stuff up next, this being an LP I actually had uploaded for that megasuperoverkill post I did last time out, and the cover disappearedso I did the same with the link. Found a new cover so here's the link. This is the 2nd and last Leaves LP from 1967 (or early 8 maybe). The band was falling apart as the album was being constructed so some of the ideas here seem a bit half-baked or ill-constructed. The finished product is basically a mish mash of garage rock-folky type stuff and straight pop (abeit with psychy overtones, it was 1967 as this was being put together). But there are a few diamonds in the rough here and all in all it's not a bad rekkid, and generally a fun trip, especially with the forgiving hindsight of the band's dilema. Reished on One Way back in the mid 90's here in the States, this one is sadly out of print and growing rarer. http://depositfiles.com/files/830582 Rhino Handmade finally made the Fugs Reprise albums available to the CD market a year or two ago in a pricey boxset (now no longer available, I'm told)that had every note Tuli and crew tooted for the label. Nice for those folks with mucho dinero. For po' folks such as myself, who dig the Fugs, but not enough to go without groceries for week to own their CDs, here is a rip of my favorite (studio) Reprise album, 1968's Belle Of Avenue A. There are two camps of Fugs fans, those who thrive on the early ESP recordings, rough and amateurish minimalist readings, and those who like the more expertly recorded (both musically and technically) later stuff. I fall into the later camp and this one is just a great listen, and while it's not as risque and out of control as the early stuff, the fidelity more than makes up for it. And the band STILL had plenty on their minds.http://depositfiles.com/files/881767Continuing with the seemingly popular West Coast psych I've been upping at a rate of about 1 elpee to a post, here is SanFrancisco's Day Blindness. Released in 1969, it is their sole platter, and is another g[...]



Well I kind of went a bit nuts here........

2008-12-08T13:58:33.157-08:00

.....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.http://depositfiles.com/files/830599And for some prog done German style you could do worse than these guys. Kaputter Hamster's self titled 1973 LP.http://depositfiles.com/files/830575 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.http://depositfiles.com/files/830608 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.http://depositfiles.com/files/830596 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).http://depositfiles.com/files/830603 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.http://depositfiles.com/files/830585Another request, this time for some (more) pop-sike. This is the Peanut Butter Conspiracy's third LP For Children of All Ages.http://depositfiles.com/files/830592 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?http://depositfiles.com/files/830564Some 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 Castillohttp://depositfiles.com/files/830569 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?http://depositfiles.com/files/830527 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!!http://depositfiles.com/files/830549Frijid 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.http://depositfiles.com/files/830514 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.http://deposit[...]
