Purple Wine - Purple Wine (1971)



Μάλλον θα σας αποχαιρετίσω ενόψει καλοκαιριού με αυτό το post που αφορά την ξεχασμένη ή μάλλον άγνωστη μπάντα των Βρετανών Purple Wine. Δεν ανήκει στους δίσκους που κυκλοφορούν στο νετ για αυτό και τον ανέβασα. Είναι βέβαιον πως όσοι από εσάς δεν τους ξέρουν, μόλις τους ακούσουν θα τους συμπαθήσουν ιδιαίτερα. Δίχως άλλο κατά την γνώμη μου πρόκειται για ένα διαμάντι. 


Αν σκαλίσετε το νετ θα διαπιστώσετε ότι κυκλοφορούν 3 ακόμα κομμάτια των Purple Wine σε ένα ας πούμε EP (δεν υπάρχουν στ δίσκο), με μία ξεχωριστή και πράγματι πού ασυνήθιστη ιστορία που μπορείτε να διαβάσετε παρακάτω. Τα τρια αυτά κομμάτια είναι τα «It's My Mind», «I'm Lonely» και «Friends». Μου λείπει το 3ο συνεπώς ελπίζω να το βρω και να επανέλθω κάποια άλλη στιγμή σε αυτούς. Ως τότε καλή ακρόαση. 
Purple Wine - Say It Now (1971)


Purple Wine - Make You (1971)



Purple Wine

Personnel
Brian Cox - Drums
Dave Moore – Guitar/ Vocals
Bob Tansley – Organ/ Vocals

One of the absolute rarest UK private pressings, made in 1971 for the band’s own use, with only three or maybe four copies having surfaced since then.  Superb teen prog pop/beat/psych album with a lovely dreamy Farfisa organ-based sound throughout on all-original material.  Sounding three or four years earlier than the actual recording date, this was compared in the guide book Galactic Ramble to “the poppier tracks on the first Complex album”, which is a pretty accurate description for tracks like ‘Say It Now’ and the gorgeous ‘Tomorrow Morning’.  The six-minute ‘Who’s To Blame’ (which features a great and fairly lengthy guitar solo) and ‘Dreaming’ have the same wide-eyed vocal and jamming prog-pop feel as the first Clouds album, ‘Make You’ and ‘I’ve Got To Move On’ are in the same vein as the psych-pop ballads on the Magic Mixture LP, while ‘Brick’ is a fantastic chunk of guitar/organ-led teen garage psych pop that concludes with an extended Farfisa solo.

A Fleeting Glance - A Fleeting Glance (1970)



Κάτι ακριβό και σπάνιο. Το συγκεκριμένο British private press βινύλιο πουλήθηκε από ότι είδα προσφάτως αντί 9.431 δολάρια διότι στην υφήλιο μόνο δύο κόπιες είναι γνωστό ότι υπάρχουν.

Για το περιεχόμενο του, βρήκα το παρακάτω αντιπροσωπευτικό κείμενο που εξηγεί με ακρίβεια ό,τι ακούσετε.  Καλό είναι να υπάρχει στη συλλογή σας διότι δεν το βλέπω να κυκλοφορεί στο νετ.

A Fleeting Glance


CHRIS LOWNDS - FOLK SINGER
AQUILA TRAD BAND
PUCKLES BLEND
FOLK GROUP – PENNY, PHIL, PAUL
DAVE AND JOHN

One of the most astonishing British private pressing rarities, only two copies have surfaced of this 1970 concept album. Telling the story of a woman's life from her own conception to giving birth, the LP was put together by a variety of musicians at a social club, and allegedly includes an uncredited appearance by Billy Fury. Linked by narration and sound effects, the music runs the gamut from heavy space-rock jamming (including a snatch of 'Interstellar Overdrive') to folk rock (an acoustic cover of 'Light My Fire' & a stunning version of 'Watch The Stars') avante-garde choirs, krautrock-styled interludes and even trad jazz. The result is among the trippiest albums I have ever heard, comparable only to Jumble Lane in terms of eccentricity, although the music is infinitely better, with a strong Pink Floyd spacy edge. Indeed, had Syd Barrett remained with the Floyd, one could well imagine 'Dark Side of The Moon' might have sounded thus."

Kusudo & Worth - Of Sun And Rain (1969)



Ελάχιστες έως ανύπαρκτες οι πληροφορίες για αυτό το Καλιφορνέζικης προέλευσης ντουέτο που έβγαλε αυτό μοναδικό Lp σε private press το 1969. Εξαιρετικού επιπέδου acid psychedelic folk.

Σπάνιο να το βρείτε για να το ακούσετε  και το οποίο σας το συνιστώ ανεπιφύλακτα να το έχετε στη συλλογή σας. Η τιμή του ορίτζιναλ δίσκου σε mint κατάσταση προκαλεί ίλιγγο. Νομίζω έχει ξεπεράσει πλέον τα 2.500 δολάρια.


Ο Ken Kusudo σε ηλικία 17 ετών ακόμα μαθητής Λυκείου και ο Jeff Worth ήταν τα δύο μέλη. Ανέβασα στο youtube ένα δυό από τα κομμάτια του δίσκου που νομίζω δεν είχουν ανέβει. Το πανέμορφο Elizabeth και 1-2 άλλα υπάρχουν.

Kusudo and Worth – Bittersweet (1969)


Kusudo and Worth – The Gull (1969)


Σκάλισα όσο μπορούσα να βρω πληροφορίες το τι κάνουν ακόμα μουσικά και βρήκα αυτή τη φωτό από μία εμφάνιση που έκαναν στις 17 Νοεμβρίου το 2012 στο MSJC Art Gallery του Mt. San Jacinto College στο Riverside County της Καλιφόρνια.

Το βίντεο που βάζω είναι από αυτή τη βραδιά όπου παίζουν το Once I Was του αξέχαστου Tim Buckley.


Tracklist:
1  Elizabeth
2  For You
3  Song To A Pelican
4  Love Is Naught
5  I Would Like To Hear Your Story
6  The Gull
7  Something From Nowhere
8  Bittersweet
9  Mill Valley Woodlands
10      Of Sun And Rain

The Good Earth Trio - Young Birds Fly


The Good Earth formed in New York City, starting out on the city's coffeehouse circuit as a folk trio before being discovered and promoted by Crewe on his DynoVoice label. Originally showcasing the talents of Jim Dawson, Bill Hinkle, and Bill Oliver Swofford, by the time the group released their debut LP, Dawson had bailed (artistic differences), replaced by Dan Shepherd. Produced by Crewe (Artie Schroek handling four songs), no matter how you looked at it, 1968's "How Deep Is the Ocean" was pretty lame. In spite of the vaguely psych-ish cover, Crewe's intention seems to have been to market them as a clean-cut, sensitive act that could appeal to folks who found rock and roll dirty and offensive. Needless to say, that marketing strategy didn't do these guys any favors. While all three members had decent enough voices, saddled with simply atrocious material (including three originals), there simply wasn't much they guys could do to salvage this one. With the exception of the bouncy 'Goodbye Girl' (not the David Gates tune) and the Righteous Brothers-styled 'River Is Wide', musically this was uniformly inept, harmony rich pop that was far too often cloying, rather than entertaining. Hard to believe it, but tracks like 'Young Birds Fly' and 'Now That You're Leaving' somehow managed to make The Association and other soft-pop outfits sound like heavy metal FM bands.

The Good Earth Trio - How Deep Is The Ocean?

How much do I love you?
I'll tell you no lie
How deep is the ocean?
How high is the sky?

How many times a day do I think of you?
How many roses are sprinkled with dew?

How far would I travel
To be where you are?
How far is the journey
From here to a star?

And if I ever lost you, how much would I cry?
How deep is the ocean?
How high is the sky?

How far would I travel
To be where you are?
How far is the journey
From here to a star?

And if I ever lost you, how much would I cry?
How deep is the ocean?
How high is the sky?
How high is the sky?

Brotherhood - Brotherhood Brotherhood (1969)




Προσωπικά δεν έχω ακούσει πιο ροκ διασκευή στο California Dreamin’ ενώ η ιδέα τους στο When I Get Home είναι εξαιρετική.  

Ατέλειωτες πληροφορίες για τους Brotherhood θα βρείτε εδώ http://blog.musoscribe.com/?p=760 σε 9 συνέχειες και μη εκπλαγείτε που η ιστορία ξεκινά από τους Paul Revere and the Raiders!!!

Καλή ανάγνωση και ακρόαση.



".....“Rose Garden” is another borrowed tune, albeit one with an unusual history. First cut in 1968 by songwriter Joe South, a version of the song would be a monster hit in 1970 for Lynn Anderson. But this ‘69 backing track was originally recorded by a friend of the band, organist Lee Michaels. The track was possibly intended for his Recital LP; Drake played on all of that album’s songs. A&M label head Herb Alpert had insisted Michaels record the song, “but Lee hated it,” says Phil. “He knew we were under pressure to get this record done, and we were running on empty, suffering from writers’ block.” So Lee slipped Brotherhood his track, probably without approval from his label: “No one questioned how the master tape got from Point A to Point B,” Phil chuckles. He remembers the lineup on the rocking recording – cut at A&M — as Lee Michaels on organ, ex-Turtle Johnny Barbata on drums, Chris Etheridge on bass, Drake on guitar, and Phil’s overdubbed lead vocal. Joe has memories of working on the song at RCA as well, but it may be those were rehearsal sessions for one of the group’s few live gigs...."

45: 
1        Box Guitar/Jump Out The Window (RCA Victor 47-9621)             1968

Formed by Levin, Volk and Smith after their exit from Paul Revere and The Raiders, and cultivating a similar pop territory.

The first album contains strident pop with some heavier sounds than their predecessors but also adds some unwelcome brass and orchestration.


One immediate standout is Doin' The Right Thing (The Way), a dramatic, sitar-influenced power-popper straight out of the Paul Revere and The Raiders school. Otherwise it is fairly undistinguished pop and ballads.

They also recorded as Friendsound.
